What a amazing book! From the first line this book hooked me and drew me into the story. It was a fast paced page turner, but also within the story the character were set on paths toward redemption and God's love. I will be lending this book out to both my christian and non christian friends.
What a fast paced book! If you like suspense with a little romance you will really enjoy this book.
You will follow Camille St. James as she deals with a recently released from jail client and the murder of her ex-husbands sister. How the two are connected and Camille's relationship with her ex-husband make for an intriguing story.
I thought this book was well written and a fun read. I enjoyed the story and the suspense! There was just enough romance to make it fun and keep you involved in the character lives. A great read!
I was given this book by http://www.christianreviewofbooks.com/ to review
Oh, what a wonderful book, plenty of suspense and enough of the every day type of life to cause me as the reader to feel the pain, the emotions, all the sensations Karen Young meant us to have as she carried us through this delightful story.
I enjoyed this suspense novel set in Louisiana. It includes romance mixed in with murder, an attorney and a pastor who were married and bitterly divorced. The theme of redemption and forgiveness runs rings true in this work of Christian fiction.The two main characters are believable, and the plot moves at a steady pace. After spotting the killer, the reader will hold her breath as the characters continued to interact with him.
After her horrible divorce, Camille St. John poured her life into the Truth Project, an organization that helps wrongly convicted people prove their innocence. Just as a man from one of her recent cases has begun his old life again, a woman is found murdered and the evidence points to him.The entire town of Blood Bayou is convinced that Camilles client is the killer. Even more disturbing than that is the identity of the victim: her ex-husbands sister.Despite her vague connection to this murder and how difficult it will be to see her ex-husband, Jack, Camille feels it necessary to pay respects to her ex. After all, she and the deceased were once sisters of a sort. Camille finds Jack completely changed. Once a drunk, he is now a pastor. At first Camille doesnt buy his so-called life change. But as they search for the real killer, Camille cant help but see the truth: Jack is not the man he was. They still share a rocky past. Can they work together to find the real killer, who now seems bent on making Camille his third victim?This is the first Karen Young book Ive read. I always enjoy a good mystery. This one starts out really good, but I feel like it needed some more time in the rewrite stage. It was entertaining. The characters were well written and realistic. But it was obvious to me who done it. I wish that the author had introduced a little more suspicion into some other characters to keep the reader guessing. Also, the story is entirely in Camilles point of view, until it nears the end. Then we are suddenly privy to a few other points of view. Im a stickler for a well-written book. And while this one was written well, with engaging characters, these few mistakes felt lazy to me. I appreciate a book more when the author takes the time to perfect it, and despite being entertaining, this one felt like it needed a bit more work.
