Experience the first book in the Cape Refuge series from New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Terri Blackstock. "Good writing, well-honed descriptive details, compelling characters, and a conclusion that doesn't succumb to pat answers keep the pages turning, making this an engaging novel . . ." --Publishers Weekly When the kindest couple in Cape Refuge is found murdered at their church, their daughter will have to find the killer . . . before her own husband is convicted. Wade and Thelma Owens run a halfway house on the small island of Cape Refuge that caters to wayward souls just out of prison. So when Wade and Thelma turn up brutally murdered, the town goes into shock, concerned that one of the Hanover House residents is a murderer who could strike again. Shattered by her parents' deaths, Morgan Cleary struggles to keep Hanover House running while her husband, Jonathan, has been arrested for the murder. As the killer runs free, a lethal race against time ensues, with far more than the halfway house at stake.… (més)

There were some things with the book that were overlooked, but it was better than most Christian suspense I have read lately. I would actually rate it 3.5 stars if possible. ( )

Two bodies, one spear gun, and a murder suspect - but did Morgan's husband really kill her parents.

One of the better Christian fiction books that I have read. Good plausible storyline and did have me guessing. ( )

I really enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. It is Christian fiction, for which I normally do not care. There are a few things that kept me from giving this one 4 looks, and 2 looks (for that matter).

All of the typical trappings of Christina fiction are there: constant undercurrent of belief and talk of God and Jesus Christ; believers trying to convince nonbelievers (although Blackstock is not heavy-handed about this one, thank goodness); getting through hard times on faith and prayer. Pretty standard stuff for Christian writers.

The one thing that caused me to almost give 2 looks were the irritating characters. Blair is a pain in the rear. She is so opinionated, headstrong, stubborn and prideful that she is almost a caricature rather than a personality. Morgan whined through 3/4 of the book about not having her husband around. Jonathan was just an ass for most of the book.

What saved this book for me was the last half. The story was so compelling, fast-paced and surprising that I literally could not put it down. I found myself smiling at plot twists, raising my eyebrows at revelations and was completely satisfied at the end.

Another saving grace is that not everything in this book was tidy, much like life. Everyone didn't live happily ever after, but continued with trials and tribulations. Too many Christians like to portray perfection once you accept Jesus as your Savior, but that's simply not true. Jesus provides a way to get through life, not escape from it. Blackstock understands this and uses it well in this book. I will read more by this author. ( )

This is a book that I may have read previous to starting a Shelfari shelf or I may have read later books in the series out of order. I didn't remember much of it, but toward the end, I knew who certain people were before the author revealed it--that's not something I can usually do with much accuracy and being 100% accurate seems too coincidental to not know something about the series.

I identify with people asking "why" a certain evil event happened and/or why God allowed it to happen. Yes, God is all powerful, and He could choose to step in and stop events happening, but sometimes the event is for a larger good or it causes someone else to be open to hearing about God in a way that they wouldn't be otherwise. Still, it is a very tough thing when it hits your family. ( )
