Misty Pines Mystery Series
Sheriff Jax Turner is a heartbroken man. Having lost his daughter to cancer, and his wife to the inevitable fall-out of his consuming grief, he’s ready to exit the world.
A radio call about Allison, who’s been missing for hours, forces him to a noxious reality. Brought back from the brink of suicide, Turner’s not in a good place emotionally – he’s worn out, anxious and volatile. His co-workers are concerned and the Councilman wants him out of office.
As the case proceeds, he’s astounded to realize that the missing girl’s young aunt was abducted and murdered years earlier. A connection?
The harder he works the more people hold back information that could make the difference in Allison making it home alive. The frustration of their self-preservation eats at him.
Hidden Pieces is a debut series by Mary Keliikoa and the good start of an interesting new character, Sheriff Jax Turner.

Sounds really good! Easy to understand why the sheriff is struggling.
Yes, and it’s well depicted Laurie
Sounds like the start of a good series with a troubled but interesting major character.
Yes, I think this character will be developed nicely. Thanks for stopping by Sheila 🙂
I do like past/present connections in my stories, June. And I can see how Jax Turner would be an interesting protagonist – lots of layers there, so it seems. Glad you thought this was a solid start to the series.
Yes, it’s is a solid start Margot and time will make this protagonist quite interesting.
