    1. This is the first in a series with Border Control Agent Peyton Cote. She's a very likable, single mother who's son comes first and stopping criminals comes second. An excellent story with lots of puzzle pieces that didn't fit together until Payton solved it at the very end. This is an exciting mystery/suspense novel told from a different kind of law enforcement that had me engrossed from beginning to end. I will definitely be reading more books in this series!Note. Only read once, not 4 x

    2. openbooksociety/article/biThis review is brought to you by guest reviewer AlinaBitter Crossing is the first in a series and much more entertaining than the above synopsis promises. It kept me up a couple of nights, when I was supposed to rest for my next day’s work. Not only that, but it touches on several points that are of interest to me.First of all, I like Peyton. She is an intelligent, young mom, who wants to do both her duty toward her son and toward herself. The latter is a little diffi [...]

    3. My original review of this title can be found on my blog - Fictionophile.This mystery series debut is a bit different. Instead of a police officer - our protagonist is a Border Patrol Officer.Set in Aroostook County, in Northern Maine, the novel features Peyton Cote, a divorced female Border Control Agent. She has spent the past seven years in Texas patrolling the ‘dangerous’ border and now she has come back to her hometown to patrol the Maine-New Brunswick border. She and her young son have [...]

    4. After seven years in El Paso, Texas, Border Patrol Agent Peyton Cote has returned to her hometown, relying on the tiny northern border town of Garrett, Maine to provide a safe environment for her son, Tommy. She’s determined to make a home for the seven-year-old and herself, complete with all the parental support her ex-husband can’t . . . or won’t . . . provide for their son. Peyton is good at her job, but when she finds a baby abandoned on the frozen ground of a potato field, the inevita [...]

    5. Border Patrol agent and single mother has just returned to her hometown on the Maine border with her son to be closer to her mother and ex-husband. She did well while working for the Border Patrol in El Paso but this will be a completely different change of pace and scenery. Of course, trouble finds Peyton right away when she discovers a baby on a freezing night on patrol. The mystery is a big one and as she digs deeper, she realizes she doesn't know who to trust. Great characters and story. Thi [...]

    6. Review: BITTER CROSSINGI took a few pages to get intoe book, but soon I was absorbed. Outstanding Border Agent Peyton Cote transfers back from El Paso to her hone town, Garrett, Maine, to work the Northern border. Sand to snow and desert cactus to pine forests aren't the biggest changes--soon Peyton is caught up in an international conspiracy run for greed, and battling threats to her son, sister, nephew, and herself.

    7. Border Patrol agent Peyton Cote transfers from El Paso to her hometown in northern Maine. While on a drug smuggling stakeout she finds an abandoned baby girl which opens up a whole new can of worms and is the tip of a human smuggling ring. Cote must fight to keep her career in face of corruption and coverups. A good read without explicit sex, profanity, or violence.

    8. It took me awhile to figure out what direction the plot was going, but in the end I found this to be an enjoyable book. Living in Maine myself, I found myself comfortable in the setting. I liked the book well enough to want to read the next book in the series.

    9. Excellent. The author has created likeable as well as not so likeable characters placed in a fast moving plot. The tension builds to an unexpected ending. I'm looking forward to read D. A. Keeley's next Peyton Cote novel, "Fallen Sparrow".

    10. DA Keeley paints a fascinating portrait of a northern border agent and an intricate tale of an illegal adoption scheme.The pace is fast, the character development excellent, and the readability terrific.I read it in two sittings- it would have been one if sleep hadn't intervened.

    11. Especially enjoyed this book because of the setting.Aroostook County and the fact that the author once taught at The Maine School of Math and Science

    12. This is a really good story. There are several interlocking narratives and the central mystery is a beaut. I look forward to more Peyton Cote stories.

    13. Great book! with believable flawed characters and a good surprise at the end - set at a Maine/Canada border with interplay from the AZ/Mexico border. A solid page turner. I loved it.

    14. It's enjoyable to read. The plot is fairly enjoyable, the writing could be improved a notch or two. Thank you for sending me this book.

    15. Very interesting read, partly because of the location and characters and partly because it was a mystery. Held my interest and left me wanting to know more about the story after the book ended.
