Book Review and Giveaway!

Indivisible, by Kristen Heitzmann
Started out slow for me but ended up really liking it!  4 Stars.




About the book: Battling his own personal demons, Police Chief Jonah Westfall knows the dark side of life and has committed himself to eradicating it. When a pair of raccoons are found mutilated in Redford, Colorado, Jonah investigates the gruesome act, knowing the strange event could escalate and destroy the tranquility of his small mountain town. With a rising drug threat and never-ending conflict with Tia Manning, a formidable childhood friend with whom he has more than a passing history, Jonah fights for answers—and his fragile sobriety. But he can’t penetrate every wound or secret—especially one fueled by a love and guilt teetering on madness.
From best-selling author Kristen Heitzmann comes a spellbinding tale of severed connections and the consequences of life lived alone. 

My review: By page 30 I was confused, there were so many people to remember, and I thought it started a little slow. By page 50 I was hooked! All the characters started to come together as I slowly started to get to know them. I really liked Piper (the young baker), she was my favorite! I also fell in love with Miles (the mystery man who couldn’t be touched). This was a good suspenseful mystery without being too intense. There were a few little love stories going on here that kept it interesting, a drug bust and animal mutilation. All the main characters had histories and it was fun to get know them. I thought there was really great connection between the characters and I loved how everything came together. It had a great ending. I can’t really say it was a surprise ending. I had kind of figured it out about half way through, but that was ok with me. It didn’t ruin it just because I guessed what was happening. Some people may not be able to figure this out and will be really surprised at the end. I would say this is a very lightly Christian based mystery/suspense novel. I would mainly recommend this for women only because of the love stories going on, but don’t see why a man couldn’t enjoy it also.
