Theo Eldridge was a bully and very much hated in Rose Hill, so it isn’t a surprise when someone finally murders him. The only real question is who the killer is and police chief Scott Gordon has plenty of suspects who all have reasons to want Theo dead, including his own family. A potential eyewitness to the murder is missing and Scott would love to find him. Scott works reluctantly with Sarah Albright from the county sheriff’s office while trying to avoid her passes and trying to convince Maggi ...more

Readable mystery that was borderline between okay and liked it. The biggest problem for me was that part of the plot was structured around a scam involving dogs that isn't possible now because of DNA typing and the storyline was current timing. I'd have liked the book more if I wasn't involved myself with purebred dogs and AKC registration and didn't know that part of the plot was impossible.
I was lucky enough to receive a copy of this book from member giveaways. I couldn’t wait to start reading. It has murder, mystery, humor, romance and drama all rolled into one. You meet best friends, family members who grew up together but have skeletons in their closet and other colorful characters. Each character is well written.

Theo Eldridge is not liked at all in his hometown of Rose Hill. Even his family members don’t like him. In Rose Hill everybody knows everybody and the
Interesting murder mystery. It seems everyone in town has a reason to kill the town bully, Theo Eldridge but who was it that finally broke and did kill him? I liked these characters. The mystery was good and just when I thought I had the killer another possibility was thrown in my path. This sets up the series. I want to meet these people again and see how they deal with each other. They are friends or relatives and sometimes both. I particularly liked Maggie, Scott, and Hannah.
Rose Hill is the scene of the crime. It's your average, small town gossip haven. Theo, the town bully and the town drunk, has been found dead. None of this small town's population are saddened. Actually it's quite the opposite. It seems everyone has had words with Theo at one point or another. Most people in the town believe that they are better off without Theo around. This makes police chief, Scott Gordon's, job very difficult.

Maggie Fitzpatrick, a fiery redhead with attitude, owns the local b
This book was pretty good. There is a lot of strong characters in the book & it had the old town close-knit community. It was suspenseful and had a really good plot to it. It keeps you on the edge of your seat.
