ANGEL LOST #7 in the Rocky Bluff P.D. Series


is the place to get this book if you want a bargain.Scroll down through Dark Oak Mysteries, and books are in alphabetical order.


Angel Lost's idea began when the image of Jesus appeared in a carpet store window in downtown Porterville on a nightly basis. For about three weeks, crowds gathered to view the unusual sight. I happened to pass by one evening when the crowd, busily taking pictures, was so huge two policemen had been assigned to the scene to keep people out of harm's way. (The store is located on a busy street.) This went on until someone discovered the image was caused by a light from a store across the way. Some rearranging of what was in the window and the image disappeared.

In Angel Lost the image of an angel in a furniture window captivate the religious and the curious of the beach town of Rocky Bluff. In the meantime, Officer Stacey Wilbur is distracted by wedding planning. Yes, she and Detective Doug Milligan are finally going to get married--or are they?

This was a fun book to write.

Here are some reviews:

"ANGEL LOST gives readers the feeling they're living inside a real law enforcement community. The story takes us into the experiences and thoughts of members of the Rocky Bluff Police Department, including primary characters, Officer Stacy Wilbur and Detective Doug Milligan. The suspense-filled novel opens as the wedding day for Stacy and Doug is rapidly approaching, and Stacy's head is full of wedding plans. But a beach flasher, a series of robberies, trouble with an obnoxious Rocky Bluff councilman, and the hint of even more serious danger approaching, intrudes. F. M. Meredith has created a thrilling adventure that weaves together the lives and problems of several point-of-view officers, with Stacy and Doug in starring roles. "It seemed so real," and, "I couldn't put it down" certainly apply here."

"Angel Lost is the seventh in F. M. Meredith’s Rocky Bluff Police Department series, and fans of this series will be delighted to learn that it delivers everything we have come to expect in these books – characters that feel like neighbors and a handful and a half of subplots all neatly woven together. Detective Doug Milligan is set to marry Officer Stacey Wilbur. As their wedding day approaches he is unhappy about not getting to spend much time with her but even more unhappy about her assignment to jog the beach in hopes of catching a pervert who has been exposing himself to women.  Abel Navarro’s mother is showing signs of Alzheimer’s, the new transfer from the LAPD has a problem that won’t be solved merely by transferring to a small town, and a reflection on a plate glass window downtown is seen by some as a sign from God because it appears to be an angel. Others see it as just a quirky reflection. The Rocky Bluff PD sees it as a distraction because of the crowds that gather each night to see it. Just as these things seem to be coming to a head, a serial kidnapper and perhaps murderer who has been working his way south from Oregon shows up. Meredith wraps everything up in a most satisfactory fashion. These books are a sort of cross between The Waltons and Hill Street Blues, and I hope there are many more to come."
