Overview

Can a dead body in a chocolate shop revive a battle-fatigued cop? Or will it take the owner of the shop to save him?

Homicide detective Scott Whelan lived for the job--until one day he was caught in the middle of a robbery gone bad. Although some call him a hero, he thinks of himself as a coward and a failure. He exists now in what he calls his "Dark Place". He accepts a new job as a civilian with the Pine Hills Police Department, thinking being close to the job will be better than leaving it completely. But when he finds himself in the middle of the investigation. Scott has to choose where his loyalties lie—with his brotherhood in blue, or his attractive new neighbor, who needs someone on her side. And figure out how to get out of the dark.

Against her parents' wishes, Ashley Eagan has split from her unsupportive fiancé and moved to Pine Hills to start her dream business: Confections by Ashley. Faced with countless construction setbacks, she fears her plans for the perfect grand opening will be ruined. When a dead body turns up in her shop, a delayed opening is the least of her worries. Now, she's afraid she's facing murder charges. Her new neighbor has connections with the police department, but he's sending mixed messages. One minute he’s the friendly, handsome neighbor, the next, he's playing cop. Not to mention he's carrying enough baggage for a world-wide cruise. If Ashley's learned anything since leaving home, it's that she's the only one she can count on.

Saving Scott is the third book in Terry Odell's Pine Hills Police series. Meet two new residents, and connect with some familiar faces as Scott and Ashley learn to work together and trust one another. Things heat up hotter than the ovens in Ashley's bakery when Ashley's a suspect in a murder investigation.

Meet the Author

Terry Odell was born in Los Angeles, moved to Florida, and now makes her home in Colorado. An avid reader (her parents tell everyone they had to move from their first home because she finished the local library), she always wanted to "fix" stories so the characters did what she wanted. Once she began writing, she found this wasn't always possible, as evidenced when the mystery she intended to write rapidly became a romance. When she thought about it, she realized that her favorite mysteries were series where she could follow the developing relationships of the protagonist—to the point where she'd read the book twice; once for the relationship and again to follow the crime and its solution. So, she started reading romance, and found there was a genre that included mystery themes as well as a relationship.

Although her genre is labeled "romantic suspense", Terry prefers to think of her books as "Mysteries With Relationships." You can find more about her at her website,

I stumbled on Terry's writing when I first started reading ebooks...and have loved each one--just enough suspense and romance! Saving Scott was great--it took me quite awhile to figure out whodunit! And all the references to cookies and chocolate--I felt I gained ten pounds just reading it! Love the Pine Hills story line...can't wait for the next Blackthorne story as well!

I enjoy mysteries but dont want all the gore, and hate it when there are descriptive love scenes. This book is a "light" murder mystery. If you dont read alot of mystery books you probably wont figure out who the culprit is until the end. I definitely recommend this to other mystery fans. Karen from IN

Sort of a romance mystery story. Probably not read any other of his books.

A woman author who still lives in a Sleeping Beauty world of the past. Handsome, mysterious, heroic man ultimately rescued by a good woman.Not convincing!

I didn't care for this book too much. The story was slow and at times depressing.
