Veteran police chief Eli Gallagher doesn't ask for much, but he does insist that his officers uphold the "serve" part of "serve and protect". Conscientious young Deputy Stan Leach takes Eli's moto to heart, maintaining a high standard of personal accountability.
When Eli's long-distance boyfriend, Gilbert Nees, telephones from Philadelphia, Eli thinks he intends to further cement their relationship. Unfortunately, Gilbert's news is anything but good. But Eli doesn't have time to wallow, because a violent act results in murder in the small town of Morristown, Mississippi.
But as Eli and Stan uncover evidence, their personal lives begin to unravel. Stan, working closely with Chief Gallagher, grows increasingly attached to Eli and learns what it really means to be an advocate of justice.

I'm so confused.
A better storyline and a more coherent narration.
Maybe actually reading this book might have been better. I was very confused, more than once, who's pov I was in. The majority of the book, which is a novella already, the two MC's were with other people. When they did finally get together I wasn't even sure why and then the book was over.
The backdrop of the book was Mississippi and I've lived in Mississippi, they do NOT sound like whatever dialogue Kelly was using that sounded more like an audition to read the credits for the movie Deliverance!
All of them?
Yeah, sorry, I tried I promise. I listened to the entire book thinking "Okay, next chapter they'll get together and the story will iron itself out." Nope. I don't like having to hunt down my characters and that's how I felt this story was conveyed.
