Rocky Road by Josi Kilpack

About the Book
It was supposed to be a girls’ weekend in scenic St. George, Utah that would include shopping, trying out the local cuisine, and participating in a breast cancer fundraiser. The fact that one of the organizers of the fundraising event, a local doctor, disappeared two months ago was not supposed to be Sadie’s problem. In fact, she refuses to participate in the grassroots investigation her friend Caro, and Caro’s cousin, Tess, have put together prior to her arrival. But then she meets the ex-wife of the missing doctor. How could she not ask a few questions . . . that lead to a few more questions . . . that lead to a small town and yet even more questions. Before she knows it, Sadie is in the middle of yet another murder investigation and trying to piece together a convoluted trail of good intentions, hidden motivations, and philanthropy turned big business.

Here are 10 things to know about Jeff Parkin
Co-Creator/Executive Producer/Director

 1. I only have one daughter, but she's the best in the world. I'm going to let her take a car to college in September and give her extra money each month. Sometimes she writes my emails for me.

  2. I once had to fire an Oscar/Emmy/Golden-Globe-winning actress on a film I was directing. It was an outdoor shoot, so everybody in the neighborhood was out on lawn chairs watching the explosions.

  3. I used to have shoulder-length hair. Now I teach at BYU.

  4. With Jared Cardon and a class of awesome BYU students, I created The Book of Jer3miah, the first university-sponsored web series and the first LDS-themed web series. The New York Times called it a "tight, suspenseful series...with quick dialogue and funny supporting characters." (Check it out at

  5. I love gummy bears, black Jelly Bellies and Swedish Fish--especially when filming

  6. Despite her wicked ways, I love Madonna's music and saw her once in concert. In my defense, my wife (who I met on my LDS mission) introduced me to Madonna, so it's her fault. Now I teach at BYU.

  7. Because of his powers of invisibility, I once dressed up like Dracula, snuck into my neighbors yard in broad daylight and fed a magical potion of Kibbles-n-Bits, dishwasher detergent, Formula 409 and Draino to their always-barking dogs. They ate it all. And didn't die. Poetic justice.

  8. I appeared on the TV gameshow Pictionary for an unprecedented four days in a row and won $16,000. The host (and dad on Growing Pains), Alan Thicke, called me "Jeff the Juggernaut". Because of my four-day stint, Pictionary then changed the rules so that no one could appear on multiple days.

  9. Against my father's strict orders, I made a roulette wheel for one of my frequent neighborhood carnivals, made a ton of money teaching the neighbor kids the evils of gambling, then donated all of the winnings to the building fund for the LDS Jordan River Temple. I am certain there is a pipe in that temple that constantly leaks because it was purchased with ill-gotten gains. Now I teach at BYU.

 10. Our pure-bred Sheltie is going to have puppies in a week. They will be for sale. Contact me for more information. We live by BYU.
