After being swept away one stormy summer evening by the disturbing, powerful tale of a soul's redemption that is An Open Heart, I knew I wanted to read Dr. Kraus' A Heartbeat Away!!!
David C Cook, because they an awesome publishing company that markets superb books, agreed to send me A Heartbeat Away, and I now have the pleasure of sharing my review with y'all.
In this book, the mystery goes far beyond the question "Who committed this crime?"
This time they question is "Why do I even remember the crime? Did this happen to me? Whose thoughts are these?"
After receiving a heart transplant, Dr. Tori Taylor is haunted by images in her dreams, and memories during the day, none of them she can place as her own. Did the new heart bring the thoughts with it?
How can Tori rid herself of these recollections and convince the police to investigate a murder that seems to exist only in her mind?
This story shifts back in time also, to trace the steps of a young couple whose lives will converge with Tori's, adding to the mystery and spiritual depth.
With connected subplots to follow, a provocative look at the cellular memory phenomena, and a strong story of spiritual transformation and emotional awakening, A Heartbeat Away truly encapsulates Harry Kraus' tagline: Grace From The Cutting Edge.
This is a very well written suspense novel. It is in the medical field but the writer has made the language very simple to understand. The story moves quickly and will keep you interested from the first page. I gave this book 5/5 stars. It is an excellent story. The Christian aspect comes into play but is not over the top. I liked the characters and thought they were believable. The setting really helps in making the suspense in the story intriguing. I enjoyed the book and would recommend it to anyone looking for a Christian suspense novel.
I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
