Emily Covington has turned her life around after a drug addiction, but her family still has trouble trusting her. Though Emily has committed herself to a year-long treatment program and has been sober for almost a year beyond that, even her mother walks on eggshells around her, fearing she’ll relapse. After her behavior during her drug years, Emily realizes she has a lot to prove. When police discover a homemade bomb under Emily’s car, and she then learns the wife of one of her friends was murdered that same morning, she knows things are deadly serious. But who wants Emily dead? And why? A conversation she had with two men, an Alfred Hitchcock movie, and a plan for a double murder all conspire for one explosive ride … and Emily is the only one who can identify the killer and save the life of the next potential victim. As she frantically works to solve this ever more complicated puzzle, Emily finds herself playing right into the killer’s hands.
My Comments: I have no idea what this lifestyle would be like, but I would imagine that after reading this book, it  gives the reader fairly good idea.  Parents that go through the drug addiction of their children need a special strength from the Lord to cope and the parents in this story display that strength, as well as all of the doubts that accompany that journey.  Terri Blackstock has been one of my favorite Christian authors since I began reading Christian fiction.  She does a great job writing suspenseful novels from a Christian viewpoint.  Now she is doing a great job writing true-to-life stories about interventions needed for people with addictions.  I highly recommend any and all of her books.
