Book Review: Indelible by Kristen Heitzmann

Publisher: Waterbrook Press
Publication Date: May 3, 2011

After having to step-down from his career as an Olympic athlete, Trevor MacDaniel now volunteers with search and rescue in the mountain community of Redford. A heroic rescue of a toddler from a mountain lion leads him into a new relationship with uniquely gifted sculptress Natalie Reeve, and attracts the attention of a broken and dangerous soul who's actions place the whole community at risk. Trevor is tested in ways he never imagined as he and police authorities seek to overcome the unseen and unknown assailant.

Indelible is a grand achievement. Much like the art that is thematically woven into the plot, the story unfolds layer by layer from it's gripping opening scene to the supremely executed conclusion. The characters became so real to me that they are chiseled upon my mind. Natalie's unique ability was captivating to read about, while Trevor was both human and inspiring. Each additional character had their own quirks that made them worthy to spend time with, and I enjoyed revisiting some characters from the connected novel Indivisible. The elements of romance were handled deftly and with great realism, unlike so many other novels where the romance becomes over the top. I also appreciated that the spiritual elements are woven into the story in a manner that entices the reader to explore God further.

Overall, I found the story to be highly entertaining, with well-plotted suspense and beautifully developed characters. Indelible deserves a high recommendation of 5 out of 5 stars. Read this book!
