Face of Betrayal by Lis Weihl and April Henry is a story about three girlfriends who work together to try to solve the mystery of a 17 year old girl who has gone missing. While working together to solve the mystery, each woman has to deal with their own real-life problems, and keep it together long enough to find the missing girl.Face of Betrayal was an intriguing mystery that was not steeped in a fantastical plot that was unrealistic to life. Instead the story allowed the three main characters to develop with each passing chapter as their personal struggles clashed with their struggle to find the missing girl. It was refreshing to read a story where the main characters were not perfect heroes that never had to deal with regular short-comings and trials of the everyday woman. Also refreshing was the fact that as a book with a main character who was a Christian, the message was not overwhelmingly Christian and unrealistic. Once again, the struggles the main character who was a Christian faced were regular struggles of a Christian that made her character relatable. *I acquired this book from Thomas Nelson on the booksneeze site*
This is only my second book that I have chosen to review for the Thomas Nelson blogger book review program. I will say I was much more pleased with my decision to review this book than the last book I chose! A big thanks goes out to Thomas Nelson for allowing me to review this book and keep it in exchange!It starts out, from the very first page, of a 17 year old girl, who is a Senate Page, who goes missing while being home for the holidays. From there you meet 3 women, who consider themselves to be called the Triple Threat, who search for clues and answers as to what happened to this 17 year old girl. As the story went on I kept trying to figure out who was behind the disappearance of this girl and I was right at one point but I kept going back and forth as to who I thought it was and in the end when it came out as to who was behind it I was wrong. I loved this book for the challenge in trying to figure out who was behind the disappearance of this girl. However the actual story line with the characters who was trying to figure out what happened to the girl, the Triple Threat, was a little so so for me. This was a very quick read and I had a hard time putting it down because I wanted to know what happened to this girl. If you like suspense novels I would highly recommend this book but if you are looking for character development I wouldn't suggest you read this one because I did feel it was a little lacking in that aspect. Overall all though I still thought it was a pretty good book!
A Triple Threat Novel that gives you triple the entertainment. This book gives you an excellent story, strong characters, brought together extremely tight writing. Lis Wiehl and April Henry introduces us Allison Pierce, Federal Prosecutor, Nicole Hedges, FBI Special Agent, and Cassidy Straw, television reporter, three women who have known each other since they were children but recently reconnected forming a strong friendship. The three of them find themselves caught up in the case of missing seventeen year old Senate Page, Katie Converse.I thoroughly enjoyed this story. They style of writing was very engaging. I found myself relating with the different characters and rooting for them as they faced different situations. The chemistry between the characters is realistic and I found myself wanting to join them for dessert. I also enjoyed the fact the authors portrayed the women by showing their fears and hopes.This book does have an edge to it and may surprise some, might even offend a few. But the one that comes to mind is well written and tastefully done. A couple of times secondary characters use profanity (PG). I would recommend this book to people who enjoy Brandilyn Collins or Steven James.
"Face of Betrayal" by Lis Wiehl and April Henry is a mystery that will keep you guessing through out the whole book.

A seventeen-year-old Senate page goes missing over Christmas break, and three friendswho call themselves The Triple Threattake a personal and professional interest in the case. Federal prosecutor Allison Pierce, reporter Cassidy Shaw, and FBI Special Agent Nicole Hedges each work the case from their own angle, occasionally working together. The case digs up personal experiences and for each woman, making things almost personal. Can they separate their own emotions from their jobs? And can they find the missing girl before its too late.Awesome read! But not for the faint at heart. This book will stir up emotions, especially with female readers. Girls who love mysteries will benefit from getting a legal perspective on what can go wrong in male/female relationships. I enjoyed seeing the crime from three very different jobs: reporter, prosecutor, and investigator. I kept trying to guess who done it, and I was wrong, wrong, wrong. Well done, authors! This is an intriguing, stunning, and very real read. Highly recommended.
