Trevor MacDaniel is a true hero to everyone but he cannot let go of the fact that he was the one that allowed his youngest brother to die all those years ago. A former Olympic gold medalist, his life changed when he was injured, but his lust for winning and the thrill of the race keep him in the adventure business with partner, Whit. After watching Trevor save her young nephew from an animal attack, Natalie, captures the moment in sculpture and a friendship/romance begins. But there are mysterious photos showing up at Trevor’s doorstep at work. He is haunted by his brother’s death and drawn to what Natalie is able to see. Her eidetic (or photographic) memory is a gift and a curse to her. Someone is stirring up trouble and thoughts of the past.
I was very impressed by the suspense and even surprised at the ending. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and loved the characters. There were very interesting relationship dynamics between Trevor, Whit, and Whit’s wife, Sara. I didn’t realize that this book was part of a series but everything is explained pretty well so the reader doesn’t feel like they needed to read the other book. However, after reading this book, I do want to pick up Indivisible just to find out more about the town and the different characters.
The story of God’s healing is very subtle. I would have liked a little bit more but the characters are obviously still searching and processing who God is, so I understand that the message of redemption is loosely woven. I did enjoy the excerpts from Paradise Lost by Milton which brought me back to high school English class.
All in all, well written. Definitely would recommend this book to those looking for a good suspense thriller.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group where I was not required to write a positive review.
