Heaven’s Keep: February’s Book

Filed under: Heaven's Keep — susanbright @ 2:20 pm

In February we are reading the book Heaven’s Keep by William Kent Krueger. Audrey entered one of Book Movement’s contests and was lucky enough to win 15 copies for our book club!  Heaven’s Keep is the 9th book in Krueger’s Cork O’Connor Series.

 Although the reviews say that each book can stand on its own, I thought it might be beneficial to read the first book in the series, Iron Lake and get to know Cork O’Connor the main character in The Cork O’Connor Series. Cork is part Ojibwe Indian, more commonly known as Chippewa,  part Irish and  is an ex Chicago cop with three children. The O’Connor family moved to Aurora, a small town in Minnesota where Cork took a job as sheriff and his wife Jo, a lawyer, became an advocate for Tribal rights. Unfortunately things did not work out as planned and Cork ended up losing his job as sheriff after a man is killed during a disagreement between the Indian and the white towns people. Cork and Jo separate, and although Cork is not ready to give up on his marriage and the idea of providing a stable family for his children he finds himself involved with Molly, a Native American waitress.

 When a young Indian boy disappears and the town’s Judge is found dead, Cork finds himself  in  the middle of the murder investigation.  Iron Lake is a good old fashion mystery with lots of twists and turns. I am looking forward to reading more about the adventures of Cork O’Connor, a likeable character despite his flaws. The second book in the Cork O’Connor series is Boundary Waters.

Join us in reading Heaven’s Keep!
