Find Me When I’m Lost by Cheryl A. Head

When Charlie’s ex is accused of murder, she must untangle a confusing knot of jealousies, complications and discordant clues.


Find Me When I’m Lost is Book #5 of the Charlie Mack Motown Mystery Series

When Charlie Mack is hired by her ex-husband’s new wife Pamela, things get awkward quickly. Her ex, Franklin, has been charged with his brother-in-law’s murder. Charlie and Pamela both believe he didn’t do it, but he’s gone into hiding for some reason neither of them understands. To the police, it adds up to easy guilt, but to Charlie, it indicates that Franklin has stumbled onto something that likely comes with life-threatening complications. Charlie wants proof the case doesn’t involve a double-cross, and when the Mack Investigations team throws all their assets at the case, Charlie’s girlfriend, Mandy, begins to worry that Charlie’s all-out efforts to find Franklin might be driven by lingering romantic feelings. In the end, everyone involved must figure out which loyalties run deeper than love.
