A New Rocky Bluff PD Fan!,
This review is from: Angel Lost (A Dark Oak Mystery) (Paperback)
I am so sad! Not with the author or the novel itself, but with the fact that it's the 7th book in the Rocky Bluff PD series, but the FIRST one for me. F.M. Meredith has got some rockin' skills. There were some errors in the book but it was only due to it being an ARC copy. But, pushing through the errors and looking instead to the quality of the plot line, and the great characters, I found I really liked this book.
Set in Rocky Bluff, California Officer Stacy Wilbur is the head of the Vice squad. Two weeks away from marrying Doug, who happens to be her superior, the town is faced with a mysterious crime: there's a "flasher" on the loose. A man who preys on women when they jog. So, to try and solve the crime, Officer Wilbur offers herself up as a decoy to try and lure the flasher out to her and then arrest him. Now, faced with trying to solve the crime, along with the help of newbie transfer Vaughn Aragon, Stacy has no choice but to catch this guy. It could mean life or death, or a wedding that won't happen.
Mixed up with the crazy stress of the other department officers' lives, some recent home robberies and a mysterious angel that appears out of no where in a store side window, will Stacy Wilbur become lost before her wedding? Can theses circumstances and mysterious happenings be solved before time runs out?
The suspense of this book will keep the reader hooked. Turning the page to see what happens next is always a must and when you have to set the book down, it will stay will you as you think about trying to put the pieces together and solve the case, or in this case, cases.
I really enjoyed this novel and am going to make it a priority to go back and read the first 6 installments. Four stars, and high recommendations for a fast paced, crime filled novel that will draw you in, make you part of the team, and leave you hungry for more action!
