Dr. Trenton Hendricks was last seen Friday, April 8, when he set out alone on a backpacking trip. Hendricks's Jeep Grand Cherokee was located Tuesday at the Chuckwalla Trailhead, but after six days and thousands of man-hours, the official search has been called off. He is presumed to be deceased.
It was supposed to be a girls' weekend in scenic St. George, Utah, that would included shopping, trying out the local cuisine, and participating in a breast cancer fund-raiser. The fact that one of the organizers of the fund-raising event, a local doctor, had disappeared two months before was not supposed to be Sadie's problem.
When Sadie learns that her friend Caro and Caro's cousin, Tess, have started a grassroots investigation into Dr. Hendrick's disappearance, Sadie graciously refuses to be a part of it. With her wedding to plan and her most recent case still fresh in her mind, Sadie is determined to leave this case to the police—until she meets the ex-wife of the missing man.
How could she not ask a few questions ... that lead to more questions ... that lead to a small town and even more questions? When the local police ask her to be their eyes and ears, Sadie can't help but jump in with both feet. Before she knows it, she is on the rocky road of another investigation, following a convoluted trail of good intentions, hidden motivations, and philanthropy turned big business.

Rocky road is a great addition to the Sadie series. Kept me on my seat the whole time. Josie Kilpack delivers another great book! Can't wait for the next one!

Another fabulous installment of the Sadie Hoffmiller series. I missed Pete in this one, but I loved how Sadie just can resist getting caught up in an unsolved mystery even when she's on a "girls only" vacation. The further I got into the story, the more complex it became... definitely a rocky road of a plot!

Sadie is back... doing what she does best... and we SO LOVE IT!
Originally Sadie was just going on a girls'-out-weekend.
They were suppose to go shopping, eating, and walking for the breast cancer fund-raiser.
But her friends had other ideas....
Knowing Sadie had solved a few mystery cases, Caro and Tess had put together ideas on how to find out what really happened to Dr. Trenton Hendricks, a local doctor who has helped so many women get through breast cancer and the organizer of the cancer fund-raiser....
He has been missing for the past two months.
Sadie wants nothing to do with it as she has the wedding to plan and she doesn't even know any of the people involved.
Then she ends up helping with the luncheon for the funeral services and talking with the ex-wife.
Seeing how the Doctor's disappearance has affected her, Sadie starts asking questions.
One questions leads to another and soon Sadie finds herself right in the middle of the police investigation.
Knowing she can possibly help she agrees to find some answers...
But it will take her on a very "Rocky Road."
