My Thoughts

Full of murder, mayhem, and a search to find faith in God, this story has quite a bit to offer.  I must say this book really captured my attention.  Josie is trying to adopt Sam while dealing with her impending divorce from her husband.  When trouble finds Josie, Nick is the first person to call.

Sam plays only a small part in this book, while Nick provides a lot to the storyline.  I also love how the idea of police chief having to deal with being a suspect herself is handled in the storyline.

I love how Josie has people in her life to help when times of trouble come calling.  This action, multiple murders, and suspense kept me reading.  However, I must say I absolutely was unsatisfied with the way this book ended.  Rather than ending, I felt like it was more like stopping by running into a brick wall on purpose.  However, I anticipate the ending means more is to come for Josie.

So if you love action-packed Christian suspense novels, check this book out for yourself.

I received a copy of this book for my fair and honest review.

More from Catherine

“If you could kill someone and get away with it, what would you do? How would you do it?”

 

Having posed this question over dessert during a really good first date several years ago—to my surprise and delight my date proceeded to share a story about an international cosmetic gone badly awry. I was so taken with this story, that I couldn’t wait to get home and start writing. And I did. That night I sat down to write a scene between two powerful women, intending one to toy with the other by playing with a jar of deadly moisturizer as they interacted.

 

As I wrote that night, an unexpected scene involving spiritual warfare popped into my head and onto the screen. The edgy, scary, lock-your-doors-before reading story I called Shattered by Death was born.

 

While the moisturizer scene didn’t ultimately stay in the book, the idea of powerful women pitted against each other did. I strive to create antagonists that are as strong—or stronger—than Jo Oliver. When I feel the tension of wondering whether or not Josie is going to make it out alive—that’s when I know I’m in the middle of a great story.

I hope you think so too.

Enjoy the read!

Catherine
