"Water's Edge" by Robert Whitlow

Sometimes, the things that seem to make the most profound and impossible changes in our lives are the ones needed to move us forward. Tom Crane lives the perfect example of this. He has a great job in an impressive law office, thinks he will make partner, has a father who is also a lawyer, and then there is the beautiful girlfriend. But, as the story begins, disaster strikes taking all of this away from him. Tom returns home to Bethel to not only close his father's law practice, but to also take a few moments for himself. Everything seems fine until he discovers two million dollars in a secret bank account. Where did it come from? Why the interest in some of his father's cases? Was his father's death really an accident? The road Tom takes will help him discover the answers to these questions, find those he can trust, and rediscover his faith.

I enjoyed this book because the story is well written and the characters seemed real. There are twists and turns, poignant moments, and lessons to learn throughout the story. I recommend this book to anyone who likes suspenseful novels. It might also be fun for book groups to read and discuss. Thank you, Net Galley, for the copy I read on my Nook!
