More cleaning up of all the books that’ve been hanging out on my currently reading list waiting for me to finish and review.

In Finding Answers, Search & Rescue gets a call about a missing child and they mount a search. After locating the child (safe and sound) they find a gruesome scene; the pastor for the local church is found murdered with his throat slashed. When several more townspeople go missing and are found dead, Harmony puts her special skills to work to find an evil murderer bent on revenge.

What I love about this series is how all these facets – beautiful Alaska scenery, the dogs, the close knit townspeople – make for such a strong foundation throughout the series. I liked the plot in this one, for one thing there wasn’t much “sleuthing” as the police sussed out the killer and why before Harmony found out about it, her role was to help find a victim, not solve the case. And I think that’s why I liked it to much; usually in cozy mysteries, the MC sleuths out the killer (and often tells the entire town and not the police what they know) and this was the reverse. That made it more realistic in my mind, one of my issues with cozy mysteries; in real life, law enforcement wouldn’t reveal anything about the case to a civilian so that their case wouldn’t be jeopardized while prosecuting. I understand the reasons for that trope in cozy mysteries, but this book is more organic and realistic and I appreciate that. Gives the book more authenticity. There’s also very little in the way of romance, Harmony is attracted to some of the guys but there’s no canoodling or flirting. Something else that makes it more realistic.

Overall, this was a great read; every bit as good as the first book, with a great plot. Realistic, authentic, exciting and moving, it made for a great read.
