Can a dead body in a chocolate shop revive a battle-fatigued cop? Or will it take the owner of the shop to save him?
Homicide detective Scott Whelan lived for the job - until one day he was caught in the middle of a robbery gone bad. Although some call him a hero, he thinks of himself as a coward and a failure. He exists now in what he calls his "Dark Place". He accepts a new job as a civilian with the Pine Hills Police Department, thinking being close to the job will be better than leaving it completely. But when he finds himself in the middle of the investigation, Scott has to choose where his loyalties lie - with his brotherhood in blue, or his attractive new neighbor, who needs someone on her side. And figure out how to get out of the dark.
Against her parents' wishes, Ashley Eagan has split from her unsupportive fiancé and moved to Pine Hills to start her dream business: Confections by Ashley. Faced with countless construction setbacks, she fears her plans for the perfect grand opening will be ruined. When a dead body turns up in her shop, a delayed opening is the least of her worries. Now, she's afraid she's facing murder charges. Her new neighbor has connections with the police department, but he's sending mixed messages. One minute he’s the friendly, handsome neighbor, the next, he's playing cop. Not to mention he's carrying enough baggage for a world-wide cruise. If Ashley's learned anything since leaving home, it's that she's the only one she can count on.
Saving Scott is the third book in Terry Odell's Pine Hills Police series. Meet two new residents, and connect with some familiar faces as Scott and Ashley learn to work together and trust one another. Things heat up hotter than the ovens in Ashley's bakery when Ashley's a suspect in a murder investigation.

This story reveals interesting characters brought to life by the vivid narration of Kelley Hazen. Ms. Hazen gives each character a distinctive voice, and brings the scenes to life as if it is being performed, not merely read. The narration adds a dimension I never would have gotten from reading this book. (This is my first audiobook, and I was very pleasantly surprised by the experience.) Ms. Hazen's narration puts you in the story by tracking emotions perfectly, and by delivering depth to this tale of relationships, murder, and intrigue. The characters, as written, are solid and well developed. The narrator brings them all to life...and a few to death. Excellent and highly recommended.
Love the series… Also, again, loved the narrator. She makes it come alive...
