Now, a mysterious woman appears at Crossroads seeking answers and help—a victim who eerily resembles Ben’s deceased wife, Susan. A woman robbed of her identity, her life, of everything except her faith—and Susan’s necklace. The connections between the two women mount, exceeding coincidence, and to keep the truth hidden, someone is willing to kill. Finding out who and why turns Ben and the mystery woman’s situation from dangerous to deadly. Their only hope for survival is to work together, trust each other, and face whatever they discover head on, no matter how painful. But will that be enough to save their lives and heal their tattered hearts? (GoodReads)
Jane Doe wakes up in the woods beaten, her head bashed by a rock and her memory gone…….the only thing keeping her alert is the killer headache pounding in her skull and the old man’s head she’s about to smash. Luckily for Clyde (the old man) he escapes the head beating and convinces the woman he’s there to help. All that she has is a business card with the name Susan on it and a cross necklace. For reasons unbeknownst to her, she decides she must be Susan and trusts Clyde who then takes her to Crossroads.
Shortly thereafter “Susan” meets Ben- the owner of Crossroads and husband to deceased Susan, who has an uncanny resemblance to the living Susan. The meeting is not friendly and although intense I couldn’t help cracking up at the dynamic of these two characters. I knew once Ben could get through all the glaring and necklace snatching he would see “Susan” in a different light………
Never a dull moment and the plot moves very fast. Almost too fast-We go from murder, to beatings, to a huge mystery to love and romance with no breather in between. The first few chapters are confusing, it was hard to make connections to the prologue and pull the pieces together until about mid-way through. It’s pretty much non-stop until the end and has a great climatic finish.
This is defiantly a book for Christian fiction readers. The faith aspects while never pinpointing to Jesus specifically- drive a deep message of God and love. Anyone who loves a mystery can enjoy the action of the story even with the faith elements heavily coated throughout.
Violence, murder, drugs, terrorism and abuse are all subjects touched on with the majority based upon intense action and dramatic scenes. Suitable for the mature teen and adult.
3.5/5- Christian Fiction- Mystery
