This is book number 4 in the Lola Wicks Mystery series.


Journalist Lola Wicks would much rather pursue a story than spend time with people she barely knows. So when an eco-terrorist bombing escalates the controversy surrounding a new coal mine on Arizona's Navajo Reservation, she's almost relieved to have a distraction from meeting her in-laws.

But as the violence gets worse and Lola digs deeper, she can't escape the feeling that her husband's family is somehow involved--a suspicion that jeopardizes not only her marriage, but also her life.


Compelling, realistically flawed characters and a timely story line, especially in the wake of the protests at the Dakota Access Pipeline, make this one of Florio's hardest-hitting mysteries yet.--Library Journal (starred review)

Florio captures the culture and poverty on reservations still suffering from greed and mismanagement in a ripped-from-the-headlines story with a shocking ending.--Kirkus Reviews

Reservations, the double entendre of its title echoing throughout, speeds to its shattering conclusion.--Montana Standard

Packed with surprises, Reservations sends reporter Lola Wicks on a trip that sets a new standard for vacations from hell. Gwen Florio uses the stark isolation and rugged landforms of the Navajo reservation to help build tension to an explosive climax. Another winner from a first-rate writer.--Anne Hillerman, New York Times bestselling author
