Bad Penny by Sharon Sala is the third and final book in the “Cat Dupree” trilogy romantic suspense series. Publisher: Mira (Harlequin), November 2008
Cat Dupree would love nothing more than to settle down and build a life with fellow bounty hunter Wilson McKay. But Soloman Tutuola—the man who murdered her father and slashed her throat when she was thirteen—haunts her even from the grave.
An investigator from Mexico is tracking down the person who is responsible for Tutuola’s death—and the trail leads directly to Cat. To add to her bad luck, a junkie with a vendetta is stalking Wilson and is willing to kill anyone who gets in the way of his revenge.
Desperate to start their future together, Cat and Wilson turn the manhunt around—vowing to do whatever it takes to find freedom from the past and the scars that have damaged them both.
Now that Cat and Wilson are a couple with hopes of marriage, children and a new home, life seems to get in their way. The man who shot Wilson is on his way to Austin to finish the job and a Mexican cop is looking for Cat because she killed the man that killed her father and left her for dead. I could not put this story down. The pages kept turning as fast as I could read because I needed to get to the end of the story. I will miss this series, but look forward to reading other stories by the author.
