River's Edge Review


 About the Book

The man Lisa Jackson loved most may have betrayed her. Another used deception to manipulate her. But did one of them kill her? Ben Jackson is sure to defeat Jonathan Cleary in Cape Refuge s mayoral race, until his wife turns up missing the day before a major debate. Suspecting foul play, Police Chief Cade launches an island-wide search. But it takes a psychic s vision to point police to the riverside and Lisa s body. The evidence implicating Ben in his wife s murder is convincing. But as a local scandal escalates into a national media circus, Cade s instincts tell him to dig deeper. And he s not the only one. Blair Owens of the Cape Refuge Journal is using her investigative skills to uncover a rat s nest of dirty secrets and more than one person with a motive for murder. But Blair s methods are jeopardizing her relationship with Cade, and an unsolicited prediction from the psychic only adds to her troubles. Is the man s so-called gift truly from God, as he claims? Did Lisa s murder have anything to do with the mayoral race, her husband s alleged affair, or her decade-long struggle with infertility? Whoever the killer is, he s about to take his evasion of justice to the next, lethal level. And someone else is going to die." (Goodreads)

My Review

I have read all the books in this series thus far and I'm such a fan of Terri Blackstock. I do think that her more recent books are my favorite and a bit more suspenseful but this is still a great series. That being said this book is centered around infertility in every way. It was interesting to read about and get into the emotions of the characters. The murder is to a woman named Lisa who has been trying for years to have a child. Add some politics, shady business owners, and media and you have yourself a puzzle. 
I really like Cade, the man who looks into each murder in each book. He is a great character and it's nice to see how his life progresses throughout the series. I do recommend reading these books in order as the characters and parts of the storyline do flow in each of them. 

I really liked this book and the way the author tries to mess with the reader's mind. There is also a huge message on living a Christian life in a bit of a side story. 

Highly recommend this series!!
