Police Chief Tess O’Rourke thought she’d taken care of her small town’s drug problem last year. But now Rogue’s Hollow residents are up in arms over a contentious vote on legalizing the sale of marijuana within city limits. And when an eighteen-year-old is found dead of a possible overdose, Tess wonders if the local pot farms might be involved and begins to fear that a new, deadlier drug supply chain has cropped up. As tempers flare and emotions boil over, Tess faces the possibility of losing the town’s support.
With her relationship to Sergeant Steve Logan on shaky ground, Tess could really use a friend, and she feels drawn to Pastor Oliver Macpherson’s quiet presence. But the anger she holds over her father’s death prevents her from embracing his faith and finding peace.
Battling storms within and without, Tess is shocked when a familiar face from her past shows up in town to stir up more trouble. And his threats against Tess may prove lethal.
LETHAL. TARGET. Janice Cantore
Police Chief Tess, the drug problem from a year ago she thought was over. Today of all days, not of her birthday, but of death, when she receives a call. Eighteen year old boy, bags found, and an open screen, mother and a friend said no, he wasn’t into drugs. Pot farms are sprouting up, as well as some questionable people show up at the farms, till she becomes a target. Oliver as Tess faced him, she saw his strength, his compassion ,knowing now that God was real for her. I thought the story had a nice flow to the story. More of knowing where Tess is in her life, with her job, and her thoughts about Oliver. Enjoyable, and one didn’t need to read the first book.
