"Shadows on the Sand" by Gayle Roper
Seaside, New Jersey seems like a wonderful place to live and work. But, there are people here with hurts that run deep, hurts that may be their undoing. Carrie and Lindsey are sisters who have made their own way for years, escaping the abusive treatment of their drunken mother and her boyfriends. Greg was a police officer, but an explosion took away his heart. Yet, you wouldn't know they were hurting unless you took a deeper look. Will Carrie and Greg learn to trust and love again?
Now, add Andi, Jase, "The Pathway," and a missing piece of evidence, and the mystery that follows will lead to murder and fear. What is "The Pathway" and how does it gain its followers? Who is killed, and who is the killer? The suspense and mystery will keep on the edge of your seat to the very end.
What a great story! I loved the suspense, mystery, love story, hope, and forgiveness that were all tied up in this book. The characters were real to me and their problems didn't disappear in the blink of an eye. They were real too. The cult and its power seemed to come right from the headlines, and the author's use of Twitter and Face Book were priceless. This book makes a great read for anyone who loves mysteries with a touch of romance.
I received this free book from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review, and thank them for it.
