I loved this book from the first few pages! Nothing like a good decapitation to get the vibes and imagination rolling! Doug and Stacy are trying to plan a wedding but between working their own individual cases, (both are cops) trying to nicely get Dougs friend Gordon to move out from his home so he and Stacy can live there when married, and her family really not all that into him they have their work cut out for them. Doug follows a lead on his own and winds up missing with Stacy desperatley trying to find him but could she be too late when his MG is found in a lagoon at the college campus?

This was my first book from F.M. Meredith but I hope to go back and get all the Dark Oak Mysteries and get caught up on what has happened to this point. Very easy dialogue and interesting plot lines!

Thanks for the nice review Jen. I ended up buying all the books in the Rocky Bluff series too. Because Marilyn focuses on both the professional and personal lives of the Rocky Bluff P.D., you really get to know these characters and become invested in what happens with them.

I posted a video trailer for this book up on YouTube if your readers are interested.

Just wanted to point out that only the last two in this series (No Sanctuary and An Axe to Grind) are listed as Dark Oak Mysteries because they are with the new publisher. All the books in the Rocky Bluff series are available at Amazon and at Marilyn's website.

Thanks again for the wonderful review.

The previous book in the series, No Sanctuary, is available on my website as well as some of the other books in the series.
