MY REVIEW
I enjoyed the small town setting and the different people who seemed to get along pretty well. I wonder if Ava and her team were stepping on toes as they come to investigate a murder for a client. Right away I knew I wasn’t going to like the victim’s grandmother. She was very unfriendly and had this aura around her like she was in charge of the town. She was a very intriguing character and I wanted to know more about her. 
Ava and her partners arrive in town to investigate a murder that no one seems to want to clear up. Plenty of people had things to say but not enough to really point a finger at anyone. The story does move a bit slow for me at times and I was ready to get to who the guilty person was. The relationship between Ava and Cory was front and center in the story and the murder investigation took a back seat through most of the book. I did like Cory and his willingness to help Ava out. Someone is not happy that outsiders are in town which puts Ava and her team in danger. 
Cory’s past is worth mentioning because it  led him to Christ. I enjoyed reading how he went through a hard time and almost lost everything. His determination to change is very evident in how he treats Ava. This part of the story was well written and it showed how a person could become humble in the face of scandal. It helped Cory to learn to forgive and look at life differently.

The author does throw  a twist in the story that takes readers on a journey of prejudice, anger and pride. I loved how the author used this scenario to allow us to remember the people who were tortured by a man whose hatred almost destroyed the world. The story takes on a serious tone at the end and does  a great job of showing how God is always there to protect us.

I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
