Winter's Child (A Wind River Mystery 20) by Margaret Coel

I have to say it it with a heavy heart that I tell you it is my understanding that this is the last part in this series. There is a reason it has been so long lived. I mean really, twenty fabulous parts, and they are all fabulous. I love the settings, the characters and the mystery never fails to engage me. I read this one as slowly as I could, though if I am honest, it wasn't very slow, because the story was a page turner as usual. If you haven't started this series, I recommend them all. This part has just released in a mass market paperback, a format I adore.

From the back of the book:

Margaret Coel’s New York Times bestselling series continues as Arapaho attorney Vicky Holden and Father John O’Malley discover that a centuries-old mystery is tied to a modern-day crime on the Wind River Reservation…

In the midst of a blizzard, Myra and Eldon Little Shield found an abandoned baby on their doorstep and brought her inside. Five years later, no one has come back to claim the little girl now known as Mary Anne Little Shield. But now that she’s old enough to start school, her foster parents fear social services will take her—a white child—away from them.

Determined to adopt Mary Anne, the Little Shields hire lawyer Clint Hopkins, who wants Vicky as cocounsel on the case. But before their meeting can take place, a black truck deliberately runs Hopkins down in the street.

Enlisting Father John to help investigate who would kill to stop the child’s adoption, Vicky unravels a connection between the five-year-old girl and a missing alcoholic Arapaho wanted for robbery—only to uncover one of the darkest secrets in Wind River’s history…
