We all remember the infamous quote, “God Created Firefighters so Cops Could Have Heroes Too” seems to be etched in our minds.

With Police Officers fitting snugly into our First Responder category, it felt only natural to share the stories that are written about them and how we all know they are everyone’s Heroes.  They lay their lives on the line to protect and to serve us every day.

In my recent review of  ”Final Respects” the first book in the Rocky Bluff PD crime series by F.M. Meredith, she gives us a peek into the lives of many:  Police Officers, their families, the Department, the community, answering “the” call and how they interface with each other.

From Chapter 1, the story and it’s characters held my undivided attention hostage until the very end.  This is the first book in the series, as the writer had no idea it would be a series!  The plotlines in this good read, definitely captivated my interest in seeking out other stories in this series, as well others written by the Author.

“Final Respects” is full of intriguing events that occur in how LEOs are affected by and from life-shaping experiences and how it makes them a better character in the world we live in today.  With that being said, there is a much greater appreciation for them and knowing the dangers that lurk against those in this honorable profession.  All in all, this is a great book and one worth reading!

F.M. Meredith, Author of the Rocky Bluff PD crime series, is also known as Marilyn Meredith, Author of the Deputy Tempe Crabtree series.  With 35 titles under her name, she states, “My first home was in a neighborhood filled with Police Officers and their families.  I saw first-hand how their jobs affected the family and vise versa.”  
Meredith, is a member of the Public Safety Writers Association, as well as with Sisters in Crime, Mystery Writers of America, Writers of Kern and Epic.  She resides in California with her husband of 62 years, has several children, grand & great-grandchildren.
