Mystery, action, great characters, with some comedy and a little romance thrown in for good measure, make this a must read. Millie knows what she wants but the world seems to be prejudiced against her and she’s having difficulty making her dreams happen. By chance and sheer grit, Millie earns the opportunity to fulfill her heart’s desires but the journey is hard and dangerous.
The small quaint lake front City of Safe Haven Harbor is not prospering in spite of its natural advantages as a tourist destination. People and businesses should be knocking down the doors to develop in Safe Haven but they aren’t. The city can’t afford to pay its bills and is laying off staff. The residents are at a loss as to why their community is languishing and cash poor when other communities close by are booming. People are finally ready for change and the newly elected reform Council has hired a young man named Mitch O’Keefe to unravel the city’s financial problems.
Mitch is thrown together through some very odd circumstances with Millie Boyd. Millie is facing her own set of challenges and is initially a reluctant partner to the attractive Mitch as they work to solve the mystery of why the city has no money. In doing so they set the stage for Millie to discover her talent for unraveling mysteries. Millie is nominated for election as city marshal, not knowing there are dangerous forces at work. She knows there is more to the city's problem than a lack of cash and to unravel the mystery she needs to be City Marshal.
Solving one mystery just uncovers a deeper and more dangerous mystery that will put lives at risk, including Millie's.

This is a fun mystery mystery where an unemployed widow becomes a city marshal and successfully roots out a drug ring with help from other agencies. The pace has a nice rhythm and the characters are interesting. I almost took a point off for spelling though.
I found this book to be truly enchanting. It is a rare blend of mystery, romance and humor-which is rare in books these days.It is well-written, with strong character development and good chemistry between the players.When I finished it, I was eager to find the next book in the series.I haven't enjoyed a book this much in years.
Having retired from public serviced I find the story line of the “Millie Series” to be entertaining and quiet well written. I have known and dealt with some of the “personalities” in the book. I had a hard time putting the book down once I picked it up. Kudos to the author, he brough the characters to life.
