Publisher's summary

Once upon a time, Elsie Ireland thought she’d found the man of her dreams, only to learn her fairy-tale romance was just another cautionary tale. Beyond a perfect family image, her husband had little interest in Elsie and even less in their son. Years later, she and nine-year-old Tony have landed in Fallport, Virginia. She’s working two jobs and living in a motel, but Tony has a roof over his head and plenty of love. For Elsie, however, love isn’t in the cards. She doesn’t have the time to spare...or the trust.

After serving his country as a Green Beret, Zeke Calhoun was happy to get out of the military and settle into the small-town life as a bar owner. His position with Eagle Point Search and Rescue fulfills his need to serve and provides some of the best friends he’s ever known. He didn’t realize anything was missing, until it was right under his nose every day - his sweet, shy waitress, Elsie.

It isn’t easy to convince the independent, gun-shy single mom to let him in - and with memories of his own disastrous marriage still plaguing him, Zeke isn’t fully certain he’s the best bet for a healthy relationship.

But one stolen kiss in a heightened moment and he’s a goner. Vowing that Elsie and Tony’s lives are about to change for the better, Zeke is up for the challenge of proving that not all men are like her ex.... A task made significantly more difficult when a complication throws the couple’s fledgling relationship off course - then quickly spirals into a life-or-death situation no one saw coming.

Searching for Elsie is the second book in the Eagle Point Search and Rescue series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliff-hanger endings.

I am really enjoying this series.

I am a huge fan of Susan Stoker and this book is no exception. Zeke and Elsie both have failed marriages in there past and are very wary of getting into a new relationship. Elsie especially because she has Tony, her nine-year-old son. Watching these two lonely people lower their defenses and learn to trust while still overcoming the past is heartwarming. However seeing Tony and Zeke bond and figure out their relationship is sweet. All of the action in this book is at the end so hang on. My only complaint is that even after two books I don’t really know the team very well. I feel like I know some of the town’s people better. But I will definitely continue with this series. Both narrators did a wonderful job as well.

Enjoyable and still full of twists.

As always Susan Stoker‘s story is engaging and full of excitement. Overall Eagle point is much more laid-back than any of her other series, but this is a very small town so when anything out of the ordinary happens it’s an adventure. Great twist at nearly 3/4 of the way through the story. Fantastic narration and I can’t wait to hear more from these narrators in upcoming books. Elsie‘s ex-husband is a quintessential bad guy. I wish there was a little less repeating of some of the emotional dialogs but overall a very good story and different from
previous ones to date.

So much charm and sweetness

Okay in this one we are moving along in the story. I felt it was pretty basic romance (wonderful characters and lovely romance) but then out of nowhere…BAM! I had all these strong feelings rise up in me! I was like..WAIT…what did I just HEAR?! *rewind and relisten*. I could not believe what I just heard! I was literally shocked and angered at the same time. NO, I am not going to say what it is but WOW does it pack a punch!

So the storyline is surprising and shocking. The characters are kind and man did this bring out my love for Zeke! This is the guy every woman who has a child wants! He is kind, protective, ruggedly handsome, self sufficient and caring. These qualities made me love him. He really overshadows Elsie (don’t get me wrong she is great but Zeke pulls ahead). Him getting her a caramel macchiato all the time…so sweet!

I did listen to this on audio. CJ Bloom and William Peters do an amazing job portraying these characters. I am giving a shout out to Mr Peters as he sounded perfectly as I expected of Zeke.

Swoon worthy

This was a gripping and entertaining romantic suspense story. Well written, the narration was good and the narrators CJ Bloom and William Peters were easy to listen to. They brought the story to life for me. I quickly became in the story and I really liked the characters. 
This was an entertaining romantic story that ticked a number of boxes for me. Well written, the narration was good and the narrators were easy to listen to. They brought the story to life for me. I quickly became invested in the story and I really liked the characters. 
There was a lot going on and I found myself on the edge of my seat whilst I was listening. Looking forward to reading and listening to more books in the series.

Loved a different alpha male character

I love military romances and Susan Stoker knows how to write them. What I especially liked about the characters in the book: mature age, male character doesn’t overwhelm and even the male performer does his acting in a calm and not over the top voice. This is so well written and performed that I can feel the love between the main two characters. I highly recommend!

Good story, too redundant

The story was good but for heaven’s sake, how many times do we have to hear how love sick these people are? I don’t really prefer to have graphic details continually about the couples love making, it wasn’t necessary, so I kept fast forwarding to get back to the story. Don’t think I’d recommend this book, maybe the author too.

3 Stars ⭐⭐⭐🎧


I had to jump and buy this book because I loved book 1 so much. But this one sadly didn’t hit the way the last one did. I had high hopes because I really liked Elsie from book 1. You knew she was hiding something but she was making it work for her son.

Zeke is a great guy and a fun character. I like them together, don't get me wrong. I think how he falls for both Elsie and her son is sweet.

The parts that really got to me was how they both were so hung up on their ex’s and yes that can and does affect how you open up. But it was kind of overkill.

The narration was perfect though very enjoyable.
This hasn’t put me off the series in any way, I will probably give book 3 a chance.
