Book Review: Truth Stained Lies by Terri Blackstock

Another novel of suspense from Terri Blackstock.

Cathy Cramer's brother has been accused of murdering his ex-wife.  Her job is to find out who did it.  She believes it is one of three criminals she has written about in her blog.  She feels this person is doing this to get to her.  Destroy her brother's life and indirectly destroy hers.

One little boy has to deal with the consequences of all this--Jacob.  His mom was murdered and his dad was arrested.   His maternal grandmother who is literally on her deathbed and uncle have been granted custody of Jacob while his father is in jail, much to the dismay of Cathy and her sisters.  How can his grandmother take care of the boy when she barely has enough energy to live?

Cathy goes on a wild goose chase looking for the murder of her former sister-in-law.  She is determined to get her brother out of jail.  Along the way Jacob gets sick and someone else comes up as a prospect.

Terri Blackstock writes Christian suspense very well.  There is enough Christianity in the story to make it Christian without brow beating us with the Word.  The answers to her suspenseful questions are never what you think they'll be.  She's written another great piece of work here.

I read this as a review request using Adobe Digital on my laptop.  All opinions are my own.  I was not compensated for this review in any way.
