When Laura Gantt returns to Georgia to handle her late mother’s estate, she hears a startling rumor—that her father staged his drowning years ago and has recently been spotted roaming the mountains.
With the help of her former high school sweetheart, Laura searches for the truth. But will what they find destroy their rekindled feelings?
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book started out intriguing and that initial interest stayed with me until the end. Mostly, this is a mystery with strong family ties. I liked the way the author kept the flow of her story going by using events from the past and the present intertwined.
The characters are easy to get to know and like and I thought the Christian angle of this book was present but not overtly in your face, so if you like reading less “religious” Christian novels this would be a good choice.
The most compelling part of this story for me was what happened many years ago coming to the surface, but the rest of the story molded around that event nicely and made for a well balanced reading experience. The writing itself was very good and the descriptions were handled in a way that wasn’t overly wordy but still gave you a sense of place and the emotions of the characters.
A bit if a wow ending, but not much on the characters after that. Still, enjoyable and unexpected. Definitely worth the time to read.
Overall this was a great book. You should check it out if you like mysteries with a bit of romance tossed into the mix.
