Final Respects is the first book in the Rocky Bluff P.D. mystery series. This is where it all began. I can assure you when I was writing it, I had no idea that it would become a series. After I wrote The End, I couldn't help wondering what happened to these police officers and their families that I'd invested so much time with. And so I wrote #2.
For those of you who are not familiar with the Rocky Bluff P.D. series, it's set in a small fictional coastal town between Santa Barbara and Ventura. The police department is small and underpaid. My intention has always been to show how what happens on the job influences the family and what happens in the family influnces the job.
The official blurb for Final Respects:
Mortician Stuart Honich dreams about sinking his teeth into the flesh of his tormentors--his boss's daughters.
Being a cop was something Doug Milligan wanted since childhood, but his wife hates his professions and Doug will soon have to make a difficult choice.
Publicity hound, Rick Strickland, will do anything to further his career--but his secret affair with Liz Phelan, a divorcee with a drinking problem, could shatter his ambitions.
The murder of the Milligans' babysitter begins a series of events that could lead to the destruction of the Rocky Bluff P.D.
Beginning May 1- 5, Final Respects by F. M. Meredith will be free on Kindle.
