This second installment of the Wilbarger County Series joins Sheriff Wade Adams and Lizzie Fletcher as they investigate murder. Wade and Lizzie attend a dinner party near the small community of Rayland, Texas. One week later, one the guests is murdered.  With his only female deputy out on maternity leave, Sheriff Adams makes a quick decision to deputize Lizzie. That decision proves to be good for the department but damaging to their relationship. The Sheriff and his deputies follow every possible lead to no avail.  Lizzie happens to overhear a conversation that gives them the break they need. With little time to spare, Sheriff Adams and his team rush to prevent yet another death.


Death Under A Full Moon is the second book in the Wilbarger County series. Sheriff Wade Adams and Lizzie Fletcher are happily in a relationship but it takes a dinner party in which one guest gets murdered a week later for them to change that due to Lizzie becoming his new part time deputy. With things strained between them and having a string of murders that happens on a full moon each month, it takes Lizzie overhearing a conversation to break the case for good. When everything is said and done, everyone is shocked over who did the killings and a couple is able to be together once again.

This was a good read but I did have my doubts in the beginning due to thinking that why are they so in an uproar over a cougar. I thought how it ended was a little too fast for my taste but it's kinda perfect for the story itself that it gives everyone a chance to see what happens to the town after everything that had happened. There was certain parts that I didn't understand due to this being the second book in the series, it just made me want to go read the first book in the series so if there is a next book to come out, I can understand everything!

Thank You to Dianne Smithwick-Braden for making me interested in your books and I can't wait to see what is to come in the future!
