Trish Bailey is on overload trying to deal with a demanding job, an ailing mother, and a healing heart. When a series of unsettling memory lapses leads to a tragic death--and puts Trish under police scrutiny--her world is once again thrown into turmoil.
Detective Colin Flynn isn't certain what to think of the facts he uncovers during his investigation. Did Trish simply make a terrible mistake or is there more to the case than meets the eye? As he searches for answers, disturbing information begins to emerge--and if the forces at work are as evil as he suspects, the situation isn't just dangerous . . . it's deadly.
My Rating & Thoughts: 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 (5 stars)
The situations that Trish dealt with were heartbreaking and I really like how her faith in God was shown and how she never wavered in her faith amidst her grief.
Colin and Trish have a connection upon first meeting, even under terrible circumstances. Their relationship grows slowly through each of their interactions and Trish’s unwavering faith in God has an impact on Colin, who has been struggling in his relationship with God.
I loved that Mac, from Irene Hannon’s Men of Valor series, made an appearance in this book also. The interactions between Mac and Collin made me laugh and smile several times. I also enjoyed the interactions between Collin and his childhood friends, the Treehouse Gang. I look forward to the next books in this series to learn more about Kristin and Rick.
There was one element that I kept on wondering when it would be picked back up and it never was. I thought it would end up being a help to the detectives in what was going on, but it never really was mentioned again. While the ending of the book was not one that had all of the loose ends neatly tied up as may have been expected in a traditional way, there was a conclusion to all of the storylines and it seemed realistic. I did finish the book wondering if there will be a little bit of a continuation there in the next book in this series?
