Kathy Herman does it again! If you liked "Tested by Fire", you will LOVE "Day of Reckoning". I read this book in 2 days. I couldn't put it down. Several characters from "Tested by Fire" (the first book in the Baxter series) return in this edge-of-your-seat thriller: Jed and Rhonda Wilson, Mary Beth and Joe Kennsington, the sheriff, FBI agent, newspaper reporter and clergy of Baxter.
Tragedy again strikes the small town of Baxter. G.R. Logan is an arrogant and egotistical man who lays off the employees in his textile factory which causes a lot of pain and hardship for many families. Logan has no sympathy or concern for his former employees. One man becomes very bitter and his bitterness grows until he becomes obsessed with getting revenge. His revenge turns into a nightmare for the citizens of this small town.
There are some hard circumstances in this story and some hard questions that the author wants us to consider. What does bitterness do to all of us, not just the madman in this story? Where is God when tragedy strikes? Does He care? If so, why doesn't He do something?
Better than the first in the series - you keep involved. Did not want to put this book down for one moment. Great!!! Book 2 of Baxter Series.
Loved this book! Love everything I've read by Kathy Herman. Quick read, good character development, awesome inspiration and thought provoking.
OK, I'm cheating, I'm about 2/3 done, but I find the book easy to read, thought provoking, with memorable quotes I have added to my quote book. I am enjoying this series by Kathy Herman and will be purchasing others soon.
