Meanwhile, Stone's investigation of an alleged rape draws him into conflict with the town council, which hopes to preserve Paradise's reputation as an ideal seaside resort.
My rating: 7/10
Will I watch it again? Yeah.
All of these Jesse Stone picture feel about the same for me. I like some of the actors that pop up like Saul Rubinek and William Devane (we could use more from these guys), Jeff Beal's score is moody and relaxing as is Selleck's performance. They're comfortable movies that don't suck but aren't without flaws that would make them exceptional. Someday I'll watch these for a second time and then I might be ready to pick out my favorites for a possible repeat viewing.
