Enter to win a Nook and Read my Review of "Twisted Innocence" by Terri Blackstock
about the book...
Holly Cramer’s past choices have finally caught up to her, but she never expected them to endanger her baby.
Though Holly’s stumbled through most of her adult life as a party girl, she longs to live a more stable life for her daughter. Then police show up to question her about the whereabouts of Creed Kershaw, Lily’s father. She has kept his identity a secret from friends and family—she never even told him about the pregnancy. Now he’s a person of interest in a drug-related murder case.
Determined to keep him out of their lives and turn him over to police, Holly uses her private investigating skills to search for him. But her bravado backfires when he turns the tables and takes her and the baby hostage. As desperate hours tick by, Holly realizes his connection to Leonard Miller—the man who has gunned down several members of her family. Creed claims he’s innocent and that Miller is after him too. His gentleness with Lily moves her, but she can’t trust a man who has held her at gunpoint . . . even if he reminds her so much of herself.
Dangers old and new threaten Holly and her baby, and lives are demanded as sacrifices for love. Through a complex web of mistakes and regret, redemption is the one hope Holly has left to hold on to.
Like the first two novels in the Moonlighters Series, Twisted Innocence held me hostage from the very first page and did not let me go until the oh-so-satisfying conclusion! The action starts from chapter one and doesn't let up from there as readers are reintroduced to Holly and her family as they fight to right the wrongs that have been committed against them. Holly is one of those characters that you just can't get enough of, as she struggles to overcome her past mistakes and make something new of her life. It's so very refreshing to read about characters who make the same sort of mistakes we all can make, and readers will find themselves identifying with Holly's insecurities and struggles. Despite being a suspense novel, the characters have real depth to them, and I love how the family draws around each other with fierce loyalty, even when they find themselves questioning each other's actions. And the ending will surely please fans who've been following along with this series!
I also continue to be amazed that Terri Blackstock can write such pulse-pounding fiction while weaving in a clear message of God's grace at the same time. She's never afraid to clearly show how Jesus paid the price to save our lives, and yet this message doesn't detract from the pacing of her stories at all.
Blackstock continues to shine in the Christian suspense genre, and I recommend not only Twisted Innocence but the entire series. 4.5 out of 5 stars.
