Their elusive enemies took everything. Now they want more…
Crossroads Crisis Center owner Benjamin Brandt was a content man – in his faith, his work, and his family. Then in a flash, everything he loved was snatched away. His wife and son were murdered, and grief-stricken Ben lost faith. Determined to find their killers keeps him going, but after three years of dead ends and torment, his hope is dying too. Why had he survived? He’d failed to protect his family.
Now, a mysterious woman appears at Crossroads seeking answers and help – a victim who eerily resembles Ben’s deceased wife, Susan. A woman robbed of her identity, her life, of everything except hr faith – and Susan’s necklace.
The connections between the two women mount exceeding coincidence, and to keep the truth hidden, someone is willing to kill. Finding out who and why turns Ben and the mystery woman’s situation from dangerous to deadly. Their only hope for survival is to work together, trust each other, and face whatever they discover head on, no matter how painful. But will that be enough to save their lives and heal their tattered hearts?
Although this is a good story, worth reading, it was difficult in the beginning to really dive in to. There are so many characters and the story jumps from one to the next without fully explaining who they are. The characters use first and last names (not always together) in reference to one another before the reader has fully grasped each person well enough to know who is being referenced. I found myself turning back to reread sections in order to follow the story line.
Having said that, this Christian Fiction Novel is a romantic-mystery and some things are necessary to keep hidden from the reader in the beginning to allow for the shock factor when the truth is revealed. Once you get past the character introductions the action draws you in to the point of no return.
A man who knows exactly who he is, however lost in his faith is forced to collaborate with a woman who has no idea who she is but knows whose she is; this is a story of how God turns that which is meant to harm us into something to prosper us.
I would recommend this to those who like mysteries as well as romance since it has plenty of both combined with loads of action to keep you on the edge of your seat.
