Relationships are fragile things, especially at Crossroads Crisis Center. Beth believes her best friend and business partner, Sara, is married to an unscrupulous man. Sara disagrees, and the resulting friction between the two women becomes almost unbearable for Beth. Tensions rise even more when Sara's husband goes missing and is presumed dead--and Beth appears guilty of his murder. In her attempt to prove herself innocent and help Sara see the truth, Beth calls on Joe, a special ops member and a man she loves although she shouldn't. Together, they discover an international link to NINA, the most feared terrorist group in the world, and realize the head of the group is among their closest friends; but which one?
Small town scandal. International terrorist attack. Who among them is the traitor?

Then, their small town of Seagrove Village is rocked by an act of terrorism, and Beth doesnt know who to trust. Someone she knows is linked to the attack, but who? Is there a connection to Crossroads Crisis Center? In the midst of the confusion and fear, Beth finds herself attracted to a man from her past. She knows she shouldnt fall in love with him, but she cant resist or even explain their bond. As her world unravels around her, she wonders, is it possible to be beyond redemption?

"Excellent characterization and a compelling plot draw the reader in and never let go. Perhaps most importantly, the novel addresses the universal question of the purpose of pain and the importance of faith when all hope seems lost. Evil is unapologetically painted black and bold,making the redemptive power of Christ seem all that much more powerful. Deadly Ties is absolutely magnificent."
