I must admit I am a huge Kristen Heitzmann fan! I find that her books always carry a bit of the unique in them. This book did not fail in that regards. I felt the story line was very compelling and intense. There was an air of mystery around the whole town and so many of the relationships. It carried a sense of reality in the picture of brokenness and hurt that many of the characters portrayed. There was also a bit of fantasy and silliness involved. I found myself connecting with several of the characters and wanting to know more about the town and the people in it. I felt there was more to tell than this one story. I was quite pleased that Ms. Hietzmann is preparing to release Indelible May 3, 2011. There is more to come!
About the Book: Battling his own personal demons, Police Chief Jonah Westfall has experienced the dark side of life and is committed to eradicating it. When a pair of raccoons are found mutilated in Redford, Colorado, Jonah investigates the gruesome act, seeking to unmask the perpetrator before the crime escalates and destroys the tranquility of his small mountain town. Jonah fights for answers-and his fragile sobriety-amid a rising drug threat and never-ending conflict with Tia Manning, a formidable childhood friend with whom he has more than a passing history.
But he can't penetrate every wound or secret-especially one fueled by a love and guilt teetering on madness.
From best-selling author Krisetn Hietzmann comes a spell-binding tale of severed connections and the consequences of life lived alone.
