Termination of Benefits | Jane Sloven
In Termination of Benefits, counselor Sarah Green is highly skilled at helping her clients untangle their emotional dilemmas but she doesn’t do so well with her own—and she’s got big ones—frightening flashbacks of a close friend’s murder and a pesky psychic lineage she can no longer suppress.
When a psychopath starts stalking Maine’s counseling community, Sarah struggles to separate past trauma from present danger while juggling an ex-husband hot to reconcile and the tempting attentions of a sexy detective. She joins forces with a take-no-prisoners defense attorney, a top-notch private eye, and her office mate Louise to catch the killer before he strikes again.
When all her skills can’t save her from the clutches of a predator, Sarah discovers a wealth of courage, and gratefully accepts all the help she can get—from this world and the next.
