As I drag myself away from the kindle and look for something constructive to do I am still slightly stuck in Cape Refuge…
If you were around to read my previous review of the Cape Refuge Series by Terri Blackstock, then you might recognize a few of the characters in this story.
A teen girl has been murdered in the local area of Cape Refuge and Chief Matthew Cade is in seriously trouble. One of his new deputies wandered into deep waters to find this well placed body. Now Chief Cade needs to figure out the who’s and why’s before anyone else dies. Can he root through the mess of teenage angst and newbie employees without incriminating himself all the while keeping track of super reporter girlfriend Blair?
There is a killer in town and everyone is highly aware of the dangers, including teen Sadie, high schooler and up and coming reporter for the local paper. Is there a bounty on all the young girls in the area and will Sadie be able to keep her wits about her and stay out of trouble at the same time? Or will new interests lead her astray in her investigation?
The town has also recently inherited a famous murder mystery author that is more than the usual peculiar. Does he have something to do with the crime as, former prisoner of the state, Sadie’s mom, Shelia might suspect? Or is someone into copycat murder and looking to frame the most respected members of the town?
New babies, teen dilemmas, old friends, new family members, a marriage, and a murderer on the loose – could Cape Refuge get any more exciting?
Author Terri Blackstock does it again! She throws twists and turns at you yet at the same time she is weaving the characters of Cape Refuge deeper and deeper into your heart. These characters are just so real and I feel like I would know them all if I met them on the street tomorrow.
The deep faith that is portrayed in this story is just as well done as the previous story. The prayers and silent thoughts that are offered up are so real that I imagine doing the same myself.
Each character is well developed with an emotional and compelling backstory. This may be book four of this series but it is a wonderful stand alone story. It is a fantastic continuation of the previous book and it almost felt as if there was never much of a break from one story to the next.
I have come to really enjoy her books and I look forward to more of this series (here’s hoping there are more to come)!
I hope you enjoyed this review and visit again soon to see what else I’ve been reading.
In His Grace.
