Downfall, Intervention Series #3
A combination of thriller and romance. At some points, I wondered which weighed more heavily in the story line. Quick up, quick down, an easy read that has a decent ending to the Intervention Series.

All of Terri Blackstock's books are great from start to finish...doesn't matter which one I pick up. I know that every single time I read one, I'm going be riveted by the story and glued to every page.
Downfall was no exception. While I'm extremely disappointed that this was the last book in the Intervention series, I can honestly say that it was a great conclusion because truly, the Covington family's nerves are probably frayed to threads after all the ordeals they've been through!
The suspense was believable, too, especially the overall flow of events. Emily's part in the story blended well as she tried in her own way to solve the mystery. Lance's instincts proved true about his classmates from his new school, which also contributed to the suspense. And to top it all off, Kent was assigned to the case of figuring out who this weirdo was that was responsible for terrorizing everyone. Poor Barbara...it was all she could do to keep up!! She got a little hysterical a time or two, but honestly, who wouldn't?
I have so appreciated Terri's confidence in writing a series completely devoted to drug addiction, and how those addictions have a ripple effect on others. And to have it combined with her trademark Up All Night Suspense? What else could a reader want? :o)

A great conclusion to an awesome series
Do you love reading Edgy Christian fiction ? Find it more engrossing than your everyday sweet, inspirational, romantic or Amish christian fiction ? For me personally, I have always been a huge fan of this theme of genre as it excites me, it intrigues and draws me in as well as the fact it is fascinating to read about. Downfall is the third book in Terri Blackstock's Intervention series which follows the Covington family of Emily, Lance and their mother Barbara. Downfall is set two years later and Emily is now sober, clean and getting back on track with her life as she works part-time at a local rehab centre helping those get through what she has been through as well as studying at the local college. Downfall starts with a murder and the attempt to bomb Emily's car , soon the events flashback to a conversation that was held at the Rehab centre where Emily worked , when another woman is killed and evidence is found on the scene which points to Emily -is it all connected ? Due to her past, Emily is soon arrested and now it is left up to the rest of her family and her mum's new boyfriend Police Officer Kent to help find out who is setting Emily up and why ?
Will the killer succeed in making Emily look guilty and cause her to partake in old habits which will lead her to a downfall or will she in her dire strait rise from the ashes and show that it is she who is the better person ?
A great conclusion to an awesome series , I do however advise reading the series in order but if for some reason you can't get hold of Book #2 . Then please just read Book #1 as otherwise you will miss out on the understandings of the characters and the backstory that leads up to most of the events in Downfall.
