Book Review: Violent Departures by F. M. Meredith


Another engaging police story awaits you in Violent Departures by F. M. Meredith.

When a local college student goes missing, the Rocky Bluff P.D. is called in to investigate. Officer Gordon Butler already has a lot on his mind. He is training the recent new hire and still hoping to spend time with his fiancée to plan a wedding date and location. Meanwhile, Doug and Stacey Milligan are planning a move to a new home. Doug's daughter, Beth, will be coming to live with them, so they need more space. He is sure he's found the right place at the right price, but Stacey isn't so sure.

I am so thrilled to be back reading this superb series. I have missed it!  In Book 11, we see many of the regular members of the Rocky Bluff Police Department, a new member of the force, and some new residents of the town. 

Meredith continues to find that perfect balance between personal and professional in her stories. In addition, she creates a story that has a main plot and numerous subplots, which rings true to life. Characters face crises big and small along the way, allowing for great character development. I personally look forward to watching the future development of Beth. Her role in Violent Departures makes me think we will see a lot more of her. Fingers crossed.

If you like police procedurals or stories where the characters come together to create a community, you will enjoy Violent Departures.
