Dead and breakfast at the Bed and Breakfast

Thief Creek

by Jeremy Soldevilla

Ohio newlyweds Steve and Heather have been looking forward to their honeymoon in a rustic bed and breakfast. Nestled in the remote Rocky Mountains of Montana the Thief Creek Inn seems just the place to relax and enjoy the peaceful and wildly beautiful surroundings. The violent Toomey brothers, on the run after their escape from prison, are looking for a secluded hideaway as well. Butch, the lumbering tattooed harelip murderer; Jesse James Toomey, the cruel leader of the gang;  and JP are desperately trying to save the life of their younger brother, Tommy, when an accident brings them to the Thief Creek Inn. Innkeeper Mike Preston is a peaceful man who, with his wife, Annie, a nurse, bought the inn as a retreat from their stressful lives in Seattle. When the Toomey brothers show up, life is suddenly turned upside down for everyone at the Thief Creek Inn.  As one reader put it, “This is an action-packed thrill ride!” Another claimed it to be “one of the best books I have read in a long time.”  It’s a real page turner you won’t be able to put down till the last heart-stopping moment.

“I spent the last two evenings hanging on tight in Thief Creek. Great job! The pace was fast and fantastic, the action non-stop, and the characters were convincing — likable where they were meant to be and despicable when they weren’t. Well done!”A. Haar

“All I can say is UNREAL! It was one of the best books I have read in a long time. I was so into the characters, and the author’s descriptive techniques really made me see the scenes I was reading. Once I picked that book up I couldn’t put it down.”D. Picha
