When her beloved grandmother is almost killed during a home invasion, Piper Kennedy isn’t surprised that she’s a suspect—especially since Luke Ransom is on the case. The handsome detective she once loved thinks she knows more than she’s telling about the attack. And given her crooked past and the heartbreaking way she’d been forced to betray Luke years ago, Piper understands why he doesn’t trust her. But when attempts are made on her life, Luke insists on keeping her safe and finding out who wants her dead. And Piper and Luke soon realize a remorseless criminal will do anything to keep them from the truth…or an unexpected second shot at a future.

Book Review by Bree Herron
Words cannot describe a good book. I struggle with the words to write when thinking of a review for books.
Jessica Patch created a book for the Love Inspired Suspense series earlier this year. I found that I was a bit nervous to read a book that seemed more on the side of dark and suspense then I am use to reading. This said, I was put through the best Christian Novel I have read this year.
A struggling with her relationship and guilt heads home to take care of her injured grandmother. When home Piper finds out that her past could be the reason for her grandmother’s injuries and that there is more danger to come.
Piper’s love from the past and the current murder investigator. Not only did Piper’s past effect her life and future but it also was the reason Luke changed from Crime to Murder investigation in the police force. He is a faith following man, that struggles with not only the past but the unknown future for his love and faith in Piper.
The heavenly father is through this book and is easy to see as a reader that has struggled with past choices like Piper, I could relate to the feeling of not knowing if God really did love and forgive. God stands true through the words and chapters creating a warmth and circle of light in Piper’s life.
Love, Murder, Mystery and God. I couldn’t ask for a better re-introduction in the Christian Fiction world
