He is busting the drug runners of the bargain stores.
When Susan Mullican’s little sister, Rose Mullican, mysteriously disappears from her job, Susan goes undercover to find her. The family friend, John Lancett, helps Susan by directing her to stores that Rose was known to work at. While Susan is gone, John is managing Susan and Rose’s deceased parents’ company.
Craig Summers is an undercover DEA Officer who is determined to apprehend the drug lord responsible for his wife’s death. Jeremy DeVore is head of the drug Cartel running drugs through the bargain stores, and the main character Craig is fixed on bringing down.
Susan and Craig had encountered each other a year earlier when Susan first started searching for Rose. Susan knew Craig was involved in drug dealing because of his ledgers she discovered on his desk. Craig was suspicious of Susan being part of the drug Cartel from her snooping in his office, along with an acquaintance they both have.
When Susan and Craig’s path meets again for the second time, they find they are both being played like pawns in a dirty game of the drug Cartel. Susan and Craig come clean with each other, and Craig helps Susan find Rose. Their affection for each other grows, as well as their physical attraction. In the end will they survive both physically and emotionally, plus find Rose?
Chick Lit Café Book Review:
To Find the Rose by Sara Kendall is a gentle, cozy mystery with a perfect blend of suspense and romance to keep you hooked!
Susan Mullican is looking for her sister who disappeared a year ago. Craig Summers is searching for his wife’s killer. What neither of them is looking for… is love! Circumstances bring both Susan and Craig to work in the same small five and dime store. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time they’ve collided and hostilities flare as soon as they see each other. Susan had been very attracted to him when they’d met a year ago, but she wasn’t going down that track again. Craig can only see lies when he looks at Susan, so he bristles like a bear whenever she is close. Yet, somehow, fate is drawing them closer together as their individual searches begin to merge into one. What happened to Rose? Who killed Craig’s wife? And why is Susan’s friend John calling the shots? A perfectly executed traditional style mystery, To Find the Rose is both clever and charming. With a slow unfolding mystery and a climactic ending, this is a super romantic-suspense novel.
