I ordered this book not knowing anything about the author. I loved this book and the three after that I am now an avid Blackstock reader. She keeps the reader wanting more. Highly recommend any of her books!

I liked this book. It had religous content without being preachy. I found myself wanting to continue reading to find out what was going to happen. I have passed it on to some members of a personal book swap we have a work.
I loved this book as I have all of Terri Blackstock's books. This is undoubtedly going to be another great series. Good mystery as well as spiritual reading. A MUST read for any serious Terri Blackstock fans.
This is the first in a series of four books chronicling the lives of Christians and nonbelievers on a small island off the coast of Georgia called Cape Refuge. The mystery centers on who killed two beloved people in Cape Refuge, a married couple who owned and operated a Christian halfway house for reformed criminals and addicts. A few red herrings are tossed about here and there, but the mystery itself is solid. Morgan, the Christian daughter, assumes the everyday responsibilites of Hanover House while her agnostic sister, Blair, the town librarian, begins doing research in an effort to clear her brother-in-law's name. There's a budding romance between Blair and police chief Matthew Cade that's more fully explored in the other books, but Morgan and Jonathan provide a nice example of a happily married Christian couple.
Cape Refuge Series - book 1
A brutal double murder has struck fear into the heart of the peaceful Cape Refuge community. Morgan tries to keep her parent's ministry going with her husband in jail and her sister wanting no part of her dead parents' ministry or faith.
A little slow to start. The murder happens early but things muddle along for a while. Character-driven, not plot driven. I did enjoy the author's writing and will read others by her, and from this series.
The 1st of a series set in a small beach community where a lot happens. Good characters that you'd like to meet. When a brutal double-murder happens Blair, who is carrying scars from her past, wants to leave town-until her determined search to find the true killer uncover some startling findings!!!
