Finding Sarah

Finding Sarah Summary

Being robbed at gunpoint wasn't part of Sarah Tucker's business plan.  Neither was falling in love with the detective who arrived to solve the case.

For police detective Randy Detweiler, a routine robbery investigation turns into the biggest challenge of his career when he falls in love with the victim and ends up having to save more than her business.

All Sarah wants is success for her gift boutique, the one she and her husband created. Now, she's living a hand-to-mouth existence. Her husband died a year earlier in a car accident—an accident that was ruled suicide, denying her his life insurance money. Burdened by guilt that she was somehow to blame for his death, Sarah faces one business setback after another. Determined to succeed on her own, she fights off a meddling sister-in-law as well as offers of financial assistance from a former boyfriend. Unaware someone is setting her up for failure, she's totally unprepared to find herself fighting for survival.

Police Detective Randy Detweiler thinks the crook is a thief who's been evading cops all over the state. A routine robbery investigation turns into the biggest challenge of his career when he falls in love with the victim, and he starts crossing professional boundaries. When Sarah disappears, he's afraid all his detective skills might not be enough to find her in time to save her life.

Finding Sarah was previously published by Cerridwen Press. This version has been revised, updated, and includes some material not found in the original.

Mystery/crime fiction5 star

I love that the author is an accidental author, having tried writing based on having something to talk with her son about and getting hooked on the process! I enjoyed her situation and characters in this novel. If you like mysteries so might you.55


Entertaining but no mystery3 star

The plot was see through from the beginning. Sarah’s character is overly dramatic & fragile. The author didn’t take much time to develop the relationship. I read the whole thing, but found it a bit cheesy.35
