I love to write both fiction and non-fiction. I've been writing for over 30 years and love to dream up characters or write personal interest stories. I don't know what I'd do if I didn't write. It is both my outlet and my therapy. I love it dearly!

There are some new characters making a cameo appearance in this one. Eunice was a vocal, snotty Christian who met Zack, which later she discovered that he was in a cult whom sacrificed two of her children. Yet she had no standard evidence to verify her suspicions. She died without asking Christ in her life because of her stubbornness and felt she failed God by sinning repeatedly. Carla, on the other hand, saddened by the death of Eunice in the short time of meeting her although she was a judgmental-mean Christian to her but came to the resolution that they had similar faults/sins. Eunice was the only one who saw through the sheer appearance and knew what sins she was tackling with; but expected Carla to get it right before it's too late and adamantly refused to do it for herself. These two characters stuck in my mind for a moment about how Christians can be taken wrongly, or making faulty accusations and voicing their opinions about another Christian walk when they need to get their lives right (plank out of your own eye)!
Seeing the godly transition with Sadie in this second book. Brian appears to help solve a crime scene and possible death in the deep waters, but also acknowledges that something in that water bit Eunice to cause the deadly infection. Pip sees the monster eye to eye, able to get away.
Enjoyed some of the things in reference to Christianity and how we need to change our perceptions--and get right with God.
One of my fave parts of the novel: There's an argument over whether or not this person is judging the other person who isn't sounding like a believer in "Deep Bay Relic" by Kathleen Morris.
Sadie refers to Gal. 6:1. She explains, "man is plural for all mankind, and yes you are trespassing. If you claim to be a Christian and you deliberately choose to live a sinful lifestyle with Mike, it is my responsibility as it is a fellow believer, to restore you back to spiritual health. I'm not doing it to hurt you or judge you, I'm doing it because I care about your relationship with Christ." (page 85).
Great analogy that parallels to the Holy Spirit: An EGG has 3 parts: yoke, white part, and shell. But we call it ONE EGG. That's the way God is, had 3 parts too: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We still call him God/Lord/YHWH though (page 115, eBook version, paraphrased).
*Although there are minor grammatical errors in the novel (and a little lost on some POV), you can bypass and enjoy the great read.
I received a PDF copy from the author to review (Willing to Review Christian books group on Goodreads).

Though some people never learn from their mistakes, let's not be the same; that is the message I came away with from this novel. The book flows well, is suspenseful, and keeps your continual interest. A definate good read. I'll be waiting to read her next one.
