    Frank Bennett is the Police Chief in Trout Run, New York He moved to Trout Run after his wife died of cancer and after he is encouraged to retire from the police force due to a mistake that he can t forget Trout Run is a typical small town where everyone knows everybody else s business Sometimes that is a bad thing and sometimes it is good When Janelle Harvey disappears everyone believes she has been kidnapped No one believes the kidnapper could be anyone from the town Frank is fairly new to Trout Run and, therefore, he falls into the group in town who is classified as not born here The other group is made up of those who were born here He had never really thought much about it before, but during the investigation, it seems to make a difference to some of the people he interviews When the most powerful man in town tries to get Frank s contract terminated because he doesn t agree with the way the investigation is going, Frank wonders if he shouldn t just resign and be done with it But can he do it There is a missing girl who needs his help Plus, a swirl of other unusual events going on that needs investigation.This is really an interesting story The investigation takes place very much like a true life police investigation The information gathering and the trial and error scenarios are very real This isn t a story where the investigator gets one piece of evidence and suddenly knows who committed the crime The author developed the story so that each piece of evidence and each personal interview must be sorted through for nuggets of truth and fiction, just like in the day to day investigation of real police work No quick fixes here Just good, solid police work The clues are there but it is the digging them out and putting them in the correct place that becomes the exquisite challenge For a first novel, this one is superb.

    So far I have really enjoyed everything this author has written I have also read The Lure, the second in this series and it s just as good as Take The Bait.Frank Bennett is the police chief of a small Adirondack town, having moved after making a rather large mistake at his old job He didn t want to retire and figured small town policing would be uneventful and laid back He finds out in a hurry that his ideas about that were very wrong.The characters in this book were a fun mix of the types of people every town has Even the people that weren t very easy to like were wholly fleshed out and very real seeming I could easily picture them all in my head.If you like a good, fast paced and interesting mystery, definitely read this book I can also highly recommend this author s Palmyrton Estate Sale Mystery series I ve read all of those and really like them.

    New Jersey author S.W Hubbard begins her Adirondack mystery series with a strong story of a missing teenage girl Did she run away Was she kidnapped Did she join a cult The twists and turns of the plot continue right up to the surprising end of the story Recommended for fans of classic British mysteries and regional American mystery authors For read alikes,the author writes on her website, Many of my favorite mystery writers come from across the pond P.D James, Ruth Rendell, Colin Dexter, R.D Wingfield, Val McDermid, Cynthia Harrod Eagles, and those ersatz Brits, Elizabeth George and Peter Robinson Of course, I m a fan of many great American writers too Laura Lippman, Jess Walter, and Lisa Gardner, to name just a few.

    Small towns are a hot bed of secrets, schemes and evil plans at least Trout Run, New York is A young girl disappears and the new police chief has to prove himself and find her But, as he starts his investigation he has a strong sense that the girl was not kidnapped like everyone said she was but what really happened to her As Chief Bennett finds out and about Janelle and her past the plot becomes involved and twisted Good story and enough twists that it kept me interested.

    Good mystery What makes a good mystery Well an ending that you may suspect but you can t tie up all the loose ends until the very end of the book Characters that are truly characters, the main character who is quite relatable and throw in some good chuckles also This is the 4th book of this author that I have read and I ve enjoyed them all I just bought the 3rd book in this series to read tonight Frank Bennett a small town cop in upstate New York investigates the disappearance of a local girl Good read

    Loved it Another great author to follow Loved this book I will definitely be reading the rest of the series The book was well thought out There were a lot of clues which led to many possibilities but I didn t see the end coming The book was non stop with no parts that slowed the plot down The characters were easy to relate to I felt you could really get to know them and get a feel of their personalities Over all, it was an outstanding book with an intriguing plot.

    Loved this book the only negative was a little bad language.Chief Frank Bennet has moved to a small town inside the Adirondack State Park hoping to revive his career And yes, this small town has all the wonderful ambiance of any typical small town along with all it s drawbacks, too especially when Frank is trying to investigate the disappearance of an attractive teenager The friendly townsfolk just won t talk I could hardly put the book down

    Enjoyed the town of Trout Run and their sheriff, Frank Bennett There was practically a fish stew of red herring in this plot, and my theories of who dun it changed from chapter to chapter On another note, Frank Bennett is the name of Ruth s abusive husband in Fried Green Tomatoes That kind of threw me off a bit.

    So I ve read all of these series out of order I love that I was able to still follow each of them AND have an emotional connection with Frank, the main character This author does an amazing job building her plot It s always so descriptive and beautiful and suspenseful Such a great time

    Mysteries are fun when everyone s holding something back to protect their long held secrets And when the police chief is an outsider but still attractive, we ve got a good mix to hold our attention.
