From the back cover:

By all appearances, Oak Grove, California should be a laid-back university town. For Sheriff’s Detective Alan Bluestein and his significant other, anthropology professor Laura Mancini, the reality is far different. For starters, the professors at Oak Grove State where Laura works are on strike with no resolution in sight. Alan’s investigation of drunk-driving accidents by underage drinkers leads to the discovery of Oak Grove’s homegrown crime family. Laura then finds herself caught in a tug of war between two Native American tribes over an ancient skeleton. As if they didn’t have enough going on, Alan and Laura’s loyalties to family, faith, and each other are tested during the mob investigation, their trip to Chicago to meet Laura’s Italian Catholic family, a life-threatening accident, and a visit by both of their mothers—at the same time!

Family Loyalty is Book 5 of The Oak Grove Chronicles. Like the previous books, Family Loyalty is a creative blend of serious and silly involving our collaborating couple. Will all the difficulties be resolved? Don’t miss this fast-paced and engrossing story.
