RRAH's THOUGHTS AND PONDERINGS:
FINDING SARAH is the kind of book that will keep you up half the night, because it's just that good!
Sarah Tucker, a gift boutique owner in her late twenties, was widowed a year before the book starts. Her husband's death was closed as a suicide, though she doesn't believe he killed himself. Her life has been quiet and sad since his death, and she has struggled to stay afloat financially.
Her careful life begins to rip apart when she is robbed at gunpoint in her store. A police detective, Randy Detweiler, starts to ask questions, and realizes there seems to be a pattern forming as to her bad luck with the store. She's had a fire, shipment problems and supplier problems, among other issues, that she'd assumed were normal to a small business. Sarah doesn't have any enemies though, so she finds it hard to believe someone would be targeting her. Sarah and the detective develop a personal interest too, and soon she's reluctantly juggling two men, Randy and an old high school boyfriend, plus the memories of a much-loved husband gone too soon.
FINDING SARAH is the smoothest of reads, and as I said, nearly impossible to put down. Sarah is a most sympathetic character and you will root for all her problems to be solved!
