Reviewed by Melinda Hills for Readers' Favorite

Rowenna Heyes is a ‘take charge’ kind of woman, but she really has her hands full when she rescues Jim Bowman from a psychotic killer. Camping just over a rise from the dilapidated shack where Taggert, Beth and Yancy are holding Jim hostage for one million dollars, Wren becomes aware of noises and investigates, carefully remaining concealed at the edge of the rise. Scars by Christina Mutch testifies to Wren’s bravery and her clearly defined sense of self as she returns Jim to his home and attempts to live through the rough treatment handed her by Quentin, Jim’s brother, and his friend Eldon, a part Apache - both of whom survived a POW camp during the Vietnam War. With the return of the million dollars due to some quick thinking, Wren is able to save the Bowmans’ ranch and earn the appreciation of the family, but is that enough to break through Quentin’s tough exterior and help him get past the nightmares and insecurity that haunt him? Will any of them live through Taggert’s revenge for the disruption of his plans?

Tremendous action, strong characters and a well-developed plot combine to make Scars by Christina Mutch an exciting and engrossing story. With a western influence, the descriptions of life on the ranch and the awesome scenery of the range draw you right into the picture, and the lively action and deep emotions keep you turning the pages. Scars is an excellent book that deals with realistic human emotions in intelligent and mature characters who exhibit strength of character, deep-rooted determination and deep-seated moral beliefs. Highly entertaining, Scars is well worth reading.
