3 1/2 stars Christian mystery/thriller/romance
I chose this book from a list on the WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Site. A Christian based mystery/thriller with a small amount of romance thrown in for good measure. How could I pick anything else?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
I liked this book, it kept my interest but took a bit to really get started. Meeting the characters and getting a feeling for them seemed to take a bit of time. When I got to know them better I cared what happened to them and I tried to figure out who was causing all the problems. I didn't come up with the answer much before the characters did themselves.
It is a good mystery and I loved the romance that wove though the relationships. Sad yet true the way the family relationships gave so much pain to the members. It always seems that our mistakes should only punish us, but they punish so many more while we process through our redemption.
I think just about anyone would enjoy this story, it was a good way to spend a few afternoons.

A surprisingly enjoyable read
I started reading Indivisible by Kristen Heitzmann with a bit of hesitation. I knew it was a Christian suspense novel so I had no idea what to expect. The beginning started out a bit flowery for me, but once the plot got going, I was intrigued. The mysteries are developed pretty well, although she gives away too much as I had figured it out about half way through. I think the best part was the lack of a "come to Jesus" moment that many Christian novels have that are so cheesy. It really was just a suspenseful book with out the language, sex or gore that many mainstream novels have. I will probably pick up another one of her novels to see if I like it a little bit better. Overall, this was a good mystery that kept me intrigued but not awake all night.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I was pleasantly surprised - it was more of a relational book than a thriller.
Just the cover of the book made me question if I should be reading this book at bedtime..it just looked like a thriller.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Jonah Westfall, the police chief has a mystery to solve involving some mutilated animals. Is there a serial killer on the loose? The little town problems seems to be escalating with big town problems. As if his job is not enough, his personal life seems to be having its own share of problems as well. Tia Manning, a local candle-maker is wanting a new life that makes a difference. Her past haunts her to thinking she is not capable of doing the right thing. Liz, a local veterinarian seems to have a crush on Jonah but is battling leaving her sister alone. The little town has so many dilemmas and must lean on one another time and time again.
This book is not something I would have picked up from the bookstore. It just looked and sounded too scary. However, I was pleasantly surprised - it was more of a relational book than a thriller.
There were a couple of "bad" words in the book therefore I could not recommend the book because of my stance on using foul language. It also would not be recommended for younger eyes, just for the fact of the type of drama that is suggested.
This book could be easily read over the weekend. Here is a link to read the first chapter.
Overall, the book is very well written and kept me engaged. I would not mind reading more of Kristen Heitzmann.
Blessings to you! You are loved!

Jonah, the Police Chief, has seen his fair share of brutality. His latest investigation begins when a couple of raccoons have been tortured. It's a well known fact that murderers usually start off with animal cruelty which means this case turn over at any moment.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

In the small town, drugs are on the rise and he is doing all he can to keep everyone safe. At the same time he is constantly battling a friend and the urge to drown his sorrows in a bottle.
Jonah is one of those people that meets the "kick him when he's down" saying. The poor guy just doesn't get a break. The majority of the time he doesn't let this overwhelm him but he's only human. I liked this book and give it three stars.
