Whitlow's novel is the sequel to Life Support. If you have not read that one (which I had not) you will be confused with this one. Unfortunately, there is no review of the first novel nor is sufficient information placed within the early pages of this book to allow you to "catch up" or remember the first book.
Baxter signed over power of attorney to his father at age eighteen (why, we don't know). Now, years later, it appears Baxter tried to kill his wife, Rena, or was she really the one who tried to kill him? He had fallen off a cliff and was in a coma and at least partially paralyzed. Apparently in the prior novel Rena tried to get Baxter's life support removed, claiming it was what he would have wanted.
Baxter's father is methodically taking his son's money, and interest in several companies, Rena claimed. Baxter's brother Jeffrey has given Rena the money to hire an attorney, Alex Lindale. Alex believes Rena's story.
A subplot in the book is her getting to know church musician Ted Morgan. Ted believes music has a healing ability. He is a concert quality pianist but because of illness at a crucial time, did not pursue that career.
Rena is caught in a web of lies and Alex refuses to continue representing her. But then Alex does continue to be involved in her defense.
The novel continues on in this way.
I was not very impressed with this novel. If I had not received as part of a blogging program, I doubt I would have finished it. The writing is very uneven. At times the action is compelling yet most of the novel plods along, frequently containing scenes and descriptions that seem to have been included only to make the novel longer.
The ending of the novel is disappointing. A miracle happens that just doesn't seem to fit the flow of the rest of the story.
I received an egalley of this book for the purpose of this review.
Life Everlasting by Robert Whitlow is an intriguing legal thriller. The plot was intricate and the characters were well-developed. A number of difficult topics were addressed throughout.
When I chose this book, I was unaware that this was a sequel. While most books in a series can somewhat stand on their own, this one definitely does not. It felt like Life Everlasting picked up right where Life Support (which I had not read) left off - more like one story in two books rather than two separate books. The book was pretty difficult to get into and I had a hard time connecting with the characters. I felt like most of my complaints were due to the fact that I hadn't read the first one. I'll give Robert Whitlow a second chance (and choose the first book this time!).
I received a free copy of this book from Thomas Nelson / Booksneeze in exchange for my fair and honest review.
I just finished the book Life Everlasting , which is the second book in Santee Series. I haven't read the first book in this series, Life Support, but it wasn't hard to jump in and read the second. I do feel like I am missing the back ground of some of the characters without reading the first though...
Though Alexia's client's life no longer hangs in the balance, eternal questions linger.
The music stopped, the room emptied, and Baxter Richardson opened his eyes for the first time in months. He should have died from his involuntary plunge off a cliff. But he's alive, and mortal danger remains. Familiar enemies stalk him. New ones hover close at hand.
Meanwhile, haunted by accusing apparitions and the tightening dragnet of criminal investigation, Baxter's wife, Rena, is losing her patience. And quite possibly her mind.
Caught in the middle of it all is Alexia Lindale, a lawyer forced to find her way through deceptive alliances, uncertain romances, and courtroom intrigue. It's a struggle of life, death . . . and life everlasting.
The story starts with Baxter Richardson in a coma from an involuntary fall off a cliff. His wife wants him dead to protect her secrets. His brother wants him dead so he can have more control of the family business. This is a family filled with greed!
Rene, Baxter's wife seems to be losing her mind. Baxter's brother is playing a game with her and her lawyer, Alexia Lindale... but neither one know it.
Then you have Alexia's friend, Ted Morgan, who is a classically trained pianist. Ted is a Music Minister, but God has given him a gift. God uses Ted and his gift of playing the piano to slowly bring Baxter back from his coma.
As Baxter grows stronger, the more endangered he becomes, but there is not just danger for him...
I did enjoy this book. Although, I do wish I could have read Life Support first. This book is well written and flows nicely... I honestly couldn't put it down. This story is filled with God's power and how God can use anything, like a piano, or anyone, even a family filled with greed, to glorify His name... and mold people into what He has called them to be.
