Terri Blackstock has been a favorite for several years. Her books are always filled with suspense that makes it really hard to put the book down. The story always flows well and I love the fact she includes a spiritual aspect to the story. Not all the characters love God, but it's wonderful to see how the story proceeds and they are drawn to the love of God. What more could you ask for?
A second tragedy in the family of siblings, Juliet, Cathy, Holly, and Jay reveals dark secrets that test the faith of each of them. The story reveals one disturbing fact after another as Detective and friend, Michael searches for the motive behind another murder. As the siblings, together with brothers Michael and Max, try to get to the bottom of the crime, they grow closer to one another and to God.
This is a book review on 2nd book in the Moonlighters series, "Distortion" by Terri Blackstock. Although I had not read book 1 in the series, you can understand what is going on, even though you jump in on book 2. :) This book starts off with a bang--literally! Juliet and Bob Cole were innocently moving Juliet's sister, Holly, into a new house. They stopped in to return the moving truck, when Bob is shot and killed in front of Juliet. Who could have done this, and why?? Now she has to go home and tell her children that their dad has been killed. How do you approach that? She goes home and looks at her husbands phone, only to see he has a few voice mails. She listens to them, and they are threatening her husband, and her children! Juliet and her sisters and other family members begin looking into the crime. Was Bob who they thought he was? How could he have been living a double life, and no one knew about it? The book has many twists and turns and will have you glued to the pages of the book. It is filled with mystery, intrigue, and even kidnapping! I enjoyed the book so much, I will get book 1 to see what I missed out on.
I received this e-book for free from Blogging for Books for this review. The opinions are all my own. :)
"Distortion" by Terri Blackstock is the second book in the Moonlighters Series. Though it would be helpful to read the first, it isn't necessary. This book follows Juliet, the wife of a surgeon, who watches her husband be gunned down and then works to solve the murder. She works part-time for a private investigator as does her two sisters. The more Juliet digs into the murder case the more she comes to know her real husband. Bob, the husband, had been leading a double life. And before the murder of Bob can be solved the mystery of who Bob is must be solved first.
This is a pretty good book. It moves quick with lots of layers into how deep things go. There are a couple of unrealistic instances that are pretty improbable, but they are few and far between. I usually like Blackstock's writing and this one does not disappoint. She is a Christian writer without all of the Christian fiction usuals. The characters are realistic people, there is real action and real mystery. Good book.
