Book Description

Sheriff Bernie Raines finds herself torn between loyalty to a childhood friend and her sworn duty to uphold the law. The year is 1985, but this incident has pulled her thoughts back to a simpler time full of happy chldhood memories and loving family and friends. A piece of those memories is missing, and though she struggles to bring it to the surface, it may be forever lost in the murky shadows of the past. Bernie enlists the help of her friend Sheriff Buck Davis, and the two soon find themselves immersed in a mystery as complicated and unpredictable as the clan of Gypsies that seems to be manipulating their destinies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sarasota at another time July 26, 2012
Format:Paperback
Ms. Palmer hooked me with a page-turner plot, details of family, and the mildly familiar setting in Sarasota, Florida, but I loved the touches of supernatural voodoo/gypsy fun that made the story even more complicated. Yes, she would benefit from an editor's touch, but I'm still looking forward to her second book. Her long career in the court system has given her lots of material to work with. Keep writing, Sheila Palmer!

5.0 out of 5 stars Life and Death on the Tamiami Trail August 6, 2012
By Abigail
Format:Paperback
Very interesting. A good read. I enjoy a good mystery and this one kept me in suspense until the very end.
I also enjoyed the journey through old Sarasota from her personal perspective.
I'm anticipating her next one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed this one, Nice CLEAN Mystery Romance June 23, 2014
By Kris J.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Bernie is a Sheriff, and her love interest is also a Sheriff in the next County. Bernie was raised around some
Gypsies when she was around 8 years old. They all live in Florida.

If you love a book that gives you written details of everything around, from the trees and flowers to the buildings, and every single part of the characters, then this is the one for you. This one even has Pictures too.
For me it was a bit too much with the details, and looking back into the past, which is why I took one star off.
But it was a very good story and I did enjoy it allot. Good Romance, good mystery.
Lots and lots of characters. I liked Bernie, and loved Buck.

I DO recommend it, it is short and an easy read with No Detailed Sex or bad language. I don't mind either one myself but I know some readers look for books like this one with no bad words or detailed sex.
And this one had little to No typos too. very nice!

Happy reading Ya'll.........

Excellent and interesting plot development. It kept me turning pages to see where the story was headed. Great ending. It's hard to believe this is Mrs. Palmer's frist novel. I can't wait for her next one.

Well written. Good use of the English language. Subject was interesting but could have been a bit more realistic. Would have liked to have seen a more detailed description on the Florida landscape.

I really enjoyed this story. It has à great plot. The characters were all likeable and well fleshed out. The reason I did not give it five stars was there was no explanation for what happened to the knife right after the killing.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful story June 20, 2014
By Bammi
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Lots of intrigue and an opportunity to solve a mystery. This story was full of surprises. The characters were wonderful and I felt they were true to the local color "painted" by the author. Fun to read and I didn't want the saga to end.
A FUN READ! Congratulations to the author for another well-written book.
