Returning from a stint as part of a task force on violent crime, Randy Detweiler is eager to reunite with Sarah Tucker in Pine Hills, but she's having second thoughts about their relationship. Can she deal with a cop who gets called away at a moment's notice - especially one who won't talk about his job?
Their reunion is cut short when a body is discovered and rumors fly that it's the work of a serial killer. To make matters worse, the Town Council might disband their police department, and Randy's under added pressure to solve the murder before they take action. Forced to work under the radar, Randy struggles to balance work with a shaky relationship.
Sarah can't cope with apparently meaning less to Randy than his job. Should she force him to choose between his job and the "us" she envisions for the two of them? All bets are off when Sarah herself becomes a suspect in Randy's case. Before long, it's more than their relationship that's in danger.
A sequel to Finding Sarah, this audiobook was previously published by Cerridwen Press, but has been updated for this edition.

Yes, I would. I don't think this book of the series is as entertaining as the first one, but it is still good company during your commute or if you have a long wait at the doctor's.
The character of Sarah is annoying in this book. She is not a character I could relate to at all. I also felt some of the story lines were left unfinished.
Kovac is a fun character to listen to, especially when he interacts with Randy.
I enjoy listening to these kind of stories. They may not always be great, but the way this narrator tells the story keeps me wondering what will happen next. The way she handles the dialogue between the characters is great, she makes you feel like you're part of the conversation.
I would definitely recommend this book to a friend. Terry Odell has written a terrific sequel to Finding Sarah. She brought back characters and a town facing the same financial pitfalls as the rest of us and placed them in another challenging situation.
The series that comes to mind is J.D. Robb's In Death series. While this one is not placed in the future, the author has brought back characters and is proceeding to build her series one block at a time.
The narrator doesn't distract from the story but tends to enhance it. She does an excellent job.
Mystery in a small town.
