Overview

From award-winning and bestselling author Mindy Starns Clark comes the fast-paced and inspirational Million Dollar Mystery series. Now with new covers, the series has a dynamic, attractive look to appeal to even more readers.

In book five of this popular series, when Callie learns that the man she loves is somehow connected to the man who killed her late husband, she confronts Tom. But he informs her that the National Security Agency prohibits him from telling her anything.

Despite the secrecy surrounding Tom and the NSA, Callie decides to find out for herself exactly what is going on and how Tom may have been involved in her husband's death. Using her investigative skills, Callie throws herself into the most important mystery she has ever attempted to solve.

Will their affection be able to stand the strain? And what was God's plan in bringing Tom and Callie together--marriage or merely answers for her questions about Bryan's death?

    The story is a fitting end to this series. Everything is wrapped up concerning Callie's late husband, Bryan. I recommend this story to anyone who likes Mindy Starns Clark.

    Had It's Moments

    The Buck Stops Here had it's moments, but over all I was very disappointed. There are gaping plot holes. People act out of character. I found myself secretly hoping that Callie would forget Tom and go back to her friend Kirby from a previous book in the series. I think this final book was hurt by being told only from Callie's point of view. I lost all sense of why Callie would want to be with Tom. Sure he was rich, handsome, and mysterious, but in this final book of the series the author writes Tom in such a way that he seems emotionally weak and ineffectual, a constant source of pain for Callie. To her credit, it's great the way the writer has allowed the characters to express the fact that they have a sexual desire for each other, but that they are morally strong enough to wait. It's also great the way Callie doesn't just stop talking to Tom when he won't explain the things she overheard at the end of the last book. She keeps hanging in there and doesn't give up on the relationship. This is unlike most secular romances where there is the inevitable 'misunderstanding' and the couple wants nothing more to do with each other until fate throws them back together. Then they are usually unkind to each other until the 'misunderstanding' is straightened out. Unfortunately, Clark does fall into the trap of secular novels where just saying 'I love you' or 'I'm sorry' makes everthing OK. No emotional aftermath. Not very realistic considering the pain the couple has been through. The first few books in the series were great and I hope Clark decides to do a follow-up story someday. Even though this book does give readers an ending they'll enjoy, I think she could have done a lot better.

    A Wonderful Conclusion

    After QUARTER FOR A KISS, things seemed to be looking up for Callie Burke. After recovering somewhat from the loss of her husband in a freak boating accident she has fallen in love with Tom Bennett, the head of the charity organization Callie works for as an investigator. However, in a moment of inadvertent eavesdropping Callie overhears a conversation that reveals that Tom may have had some involvement in her husband¿s death. Devastated when Tom refuses to explain more citing confidentiality agreement with the NSA, Callie instead must follow clues back to Tom¿s hometown to discover the secrets of his past and how they relate to her present. In doing so Callie must learn to fully trust the man she has grown to love and finally discover the tragedy behind her husband¿s death. Mindy Starns Clark¿s books have grown stronger with each new entry, and THE BUCK STOPS HERE concludes on a high note. Callie is a wonderful character, sympathetic, witty, and very engaging. The plot moves along nicely and the relationship between Tom and Callie never overwhelms the mystery. Fans will be pleased with this final entry in the Million Dollar Mysteries series and new readers will be encouraged to seek out the earlier books.

    An amazing conclusion...

    This book was an amazing conclusion to the series. It really ties everything together as Callie faces her most emotional investigation. I couldn't have asked for a better ending!

    Gtreat mystery

    Several years ago, Callie and her husband Bryan were on the Appomattox River in Virginia, when a drunken speedboat driver killed the latter. The driver James Sparks pleaded guilty and was sentenced to sixteen years in prison. At first Callie did not want to live, but over time with the help of a friend private investigator Eli Gold she regained her equilibrium. Eli got Callie a job as a researcher at the J.O.S.H.U.A. Foundation investigating nonprofit organizations that apply for grants. Though she still mourns her loss, she has a new beau, Tom Bennett, a code breaker for the National Security Agency................................. Callie overhears Tom tell Eli he loves her and wants to marry her, but must tell her the truth about Bryan. Eli reminds him that would be an NSA security breach. Stunned, Callie later confronts Tom, who claims national security so she begins to investigate her late husband¿s life and death. Her inquiries take her from her Maryland Eastern Shore home to Louisiana where she seeks the truth although someone is stalking her with murder in mind............................... The fifth ¿Million Dollar¿ mystery, THE BUCK STOPS HERE, is a terrific tale that completes the circle started with the first novel. The story line is electrifying, but character driven as Callie needs to know if her second true love had something to do with the death of her first true love. Callie is the center of this fast-paced plot with her quest to learn the truth even risking a chance at a loving relationship. This stand alone novel and the entire series provides delightful entertainment value and worth the bucks, quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies......................... Harriet Klausner
