In Termination of Benefits, Therapist Sarah Green is skilled at helping her counseling clients untangle their emotional dilemmas but doesn’t do so well with her own problems, and she’s got big ones—ghostly visits from a murdered friend and frightening flashbacks. Then a psychopath starts stalking Maine’s counseling community, and Sarah struggles to separate past trauma from present danger.

While juggling an ex-husband hot to reconcile and the attentions of a sexy detective, Sarah joins forces with a take-no-prisoners defense attorney, a top-notch private eye, and her office mate Louise to catch the killer. When the next life in peril is her own, Sarah realizes she’s stronger than she thinks and welcomes unexpected assistance from this world and the next.
