From Mysterious Reviews: Though this mystery's promising premise is set up early, there isn't much suspense involved, with the action not really ramping up until well into the second half of the book. Ali Reynolds, the series character, is largely absent from much of the investigation, a somewhat disappointing factor as well.
Synopsis (from the publisher): Ali Reynolds begins the summer thinking her most difficult challenge will be surviving a six-week-long course as the lone forty-something female at the Arizona Police Academy — not to mention taking over the 6:00 AM shift at her family's restaurant while her parents enjoy a long overdue Caribbean cruise. However, when Brenda Riley, a colleague from Ali's old news broadcasting days in California, shows up in town with an alcohol problem and an unlikely story about a missing fiancé, Ali reluctantly agrees to help.
