Terry Odell began writing by mistake, when her son mentioned a television show and she thought she'd be a good mom and watch it so they'd have common ground for discussions.
Little did she know she would enter the world of writing, first via fanfiction, then through internet groups, and finally with groups with real, live partners. Her first publications were short stories, but she found more freedom in longer works and began what she thought was a mystery. Her daughters told her it was a romance so she began learning more about the genre and craft. She belongs to both the Romance Writers of America and Mystery Writers of America.
Now a multi-published, award winning author, Terry resides with her husband in the mountains of Colorado.

Great writer, but recycled storyline.

SAVING SCOTT is the 3rd book in the "Pine Hills Police" series. The 1st is Finding Sarah (Pine Hills Police)and the 2nd Hidden Fire (Pine Hills Police). These are the first books that I've read by author Terry Odell and I will certainly be checking out more of her work.
Scott Whelan was a seasoned Homicide Detective before taking a job in a civilian position with the PHPD. Most people think of Scott as a hero, but Scott considers himself a failure and is beating himself up inside. He doesn't feel worthy enough to carry the badge, all because of a bank robbery that went south, even though, he was brutally beaten physically and has permanent damage.
Ashley Eagan recently moved to Pine Hills and in the process of opening a chocolate bakery which has been a life long dream. The contractors run into several glitches which threatens to halt her grand-opening. But, that's the least Ashley has to worry about. Another shop owner turns up dead in her establishment and Ashley is the prime suspect. Luckily, Scott, who happened to have just moved in next door to Ashley in her apartment building, doesn't believe Ashley is guilty and sets out to prove it. When another body is discovered, the police have another problem...too many suspects.
If you enjoy a good series with continuous characters; great plots, tons of suspense, action and romance, I highly recommend the Pine Hills Police trilogy.
