MD5 Stars Out Of 5Simple, Real, Faithful, a bit Romantic, but most Importantly, MysteriousNovember 7, 2015MDQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5While I have never read many mysteries in my time ( Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys did very little to impress me), I believe I have a right to claim this novel a great read! The author has no problem mixing subtle hints of southern charm into the chaotic world of badges and bodies. Every clue leading to another, much like the longing glances between main character Avery North and her heart throb Jackson. Yes, this book perfectly reflects the real life hardships of juggling family, faith, work, love, and a mending heart as we are introduced to the struggles of Avery's life. This book is simply wonderful; it will appeal to every need to anyone's inner bookworm.

Debbie WilderSalinas, CAAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5An incredible crime story!January 1, 2015Debbie WilderSalinas, CAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Avery North is a wonderful character. She has a huge conflict going on inside trying to balance her job as a police detective and her family commitments. This whole conflict is very well presented as she works her way through leading the team trying to solve the murders of 2 Jane Does. Along with this inner conflict she is dealing with personal heartache from losses in the past that keep coming to her mind as the case progresses. She is a very realistic character that has been developed with incredible thought to detail.
She is surrounded by a number of other well written characters both in her family and on her team. I really enjoyed getting to know each of them. I hope that I learn more about them in future books in this series.
The plot leaves nothing to be desired. It is very intricately woven and proceeds to build throughout the novel. It is very nicely interspersed with sections that work to develop the characters and their relationships. This novel has a very nice balance between the two. I was kept guessing throughout the story as to exactly how the murders were committed and how they tied in with other criminal activity that was going on.

Tell us a little about yourself. Im a mom to three wonderful kids, which as you probably know means my job description consists of everything from chef, to chauffer, to counselor. I also work with my husband in ministry where we live in Mozambique, run a non profit to assist the physical needs of those we work with, called The ECHO Project, and of course, I love to write.
What was your motivation behind this project? Several years ago, I wrote Blood Ransom, a novel that focused on human trafficking in Africa. At the time, I had no idea this was an issue in the US. With this new series, I decided that setting this story in the US, the backdrop of human trafficking would not only make an exciting story, but would also help people become aware of this very real issue.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? In the story, my main character, Avery North, struggles to balance life as a widow and a single mom with a full-time career. She has to come to the point where she realizes her weaknesses and fears and rely only on Gods strength. In our own lives, we often feel inadequate to follow Gods call, but never forget that the God who created the universe loves us and wants to be our strength. He came to heal the empty and broken hearted, and those searching for freedom and hope. Thats what I hope readers take away from this story.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I have to confess that Avery and I share some of the same fears. It's easy to run from one appointment to the next, while crossing the urgent tasks off our to-do list, but if we don't stop to find out who God really is, to really stat to know him and build that relationship, what have we gained? My prayer is that we can find the courage to step out of our comfortable world and see the hurting, the lonely and helpless around us and find ways to be Jesus to them. The amazing thing is that in turn, our own lives will be made richer because of it!
