Twisted Innocence by Terri Blackstock, a review

About the book:

Twisted Innocence (Zondervan, February 2015)

Holly Cramer's past choices have finally caught up to her, but she never expected them to endanger her baby.

Though Holly's stumbled through most of her adult life as a party girl, she longs to live a more stable life for her daughter. Then police show up to question her about the whereabouts of Creed Kershaw, Lily's father. She has kept his identity a secret from friends and family---she never even told him about the pregnancy. Now he's a person of interest in a drug-related murder case.

Determined to keep him out of their lives and turn him over to police, Holly uses her private investigating skills to search for him. But her bravado backfires when he turns the tables and takes her and the baby hostage. As desperate hours tick by, Holly realizes his connection to Leonard Miller-the man who has gunned down several members of her family. Creed claims he's innocent and that Miller is after him too. His gentleness with Lily moves her, but she can't trust a man who has held her at gunpoint . . . even if he reminds her so much of herself.

Dangers old and new threaten Holly and her baby, and lives are demanded as sacrifices for love. Through a complex web of mistakes and regret, redemption is the one hope Holly has left to hold on to.

My Take:

I have read MANY of Terri Blackstock's books and she does NOT disappoint in, Twisted Innocence, the third book in Terri Blackstock's Moolighter's Series. It is the continuing story of Holly Cramer and her sisters and follows them as they work and struggle to get through day to day living while continuing their Private Investigator work and taking care of their families.  

Blackstock has an amazing ability to string along the reader in a twisted story of suspense and thrills.  Mixed in with the thrills and suspense, she mixes in some romance, some humor and a lot of the Truth-- God's truth.  I loved how through her sisters, Holly realizes that she has value and that God loves her even past her mistakes and is then able to show that same grace to Creed (don't you love that name!!) and help him believe it as well.  I also love that Blackstock doesn't feel the need to water down or leave out God and His part in our lives no matter where we are or what we're doing. 

I would definitely recommend this to anyone that loves to read CLEAN, thrilling suspense.
