It's my first time reading Robert Whitlow and I can say I am not disappointed. Water's Edge is a well-written, well-paced, action-packed mystery with well-rounded characters and strategically placed twists that will definitely keep any enthusiast of the genre turning the pages well into the night. Whitlow is indeed the master of legal suspense, and he doesn't fall short of proving that in this novel with a little Christian flair. This book has also reflected some Christian values that felt real and personal, almost tangible through the words. I often found myself reflecting on these valuable thoughts myself, thus helping me relate with the characters more. I highly recommend this to people who are close to losing faith and are in constant search of their purpose in life. You'll gain your much needed insights through all the excitement and drama of the plot-- definitely worth your time, don't you think?

I got an ARC of this book through Booksneeze.

too much

how can you justify charging less than $1 more for paperback versus ebooks?????? Us Nook book owners are really being taken advantage of and we have been pushed too far - Kindel is looking better and better.....

    A Great Read!

    Water’s Edge by Robert Whitlow was a joy to read! I love legal dramas and this was a great read. It starts with a young attorney, named Tom Crane who returns to his small hometown to finalize plans from his deceased father’s law office and while there uncovers some mysterious events. Even though the main character has lost everything to move back to his hometown, he encounters people and places throughout the book that return him to his faith. He also uncovers things about himself that will last a lifetime. I truly enjoyed, the writing of the author and how he describes the main character in detail and his surroundings throughout the book. I highly recommend this book and was very pleased to review this complimentary copy from Thomas Nelson publishing.

    Excellent reading!

    I have read many of Robert Whitlow's books and Water's Edge ranks right up along with the others. As a Christian I appreciate Mr. Whitlow's commitment to write intense mysteries without bringing in sex and filth. He has a way of keeping your attention so much so that you can't put the book down. His characters have morals and standards that you can agree with. An added bonus is at the same time you are learning some interesting things about the law. I would recommend this book to a wide range of age groups.

    Christian fiction at it's best!

    Water's Edge by Robert Whitlow is Christian fiction at its best--a good story with plenty of life lessons. Tom, an up and coming attorney, has everything--great job, great girlfriend, and living in the perfect city to get even more; however, all this turns around quickly. His great job in an elite law firm where he thought to become one of the partners is gone. And in the same day he loses his girl, too. Wow, his perfect world disappears. With no job, he heads back to his small hometown to close his dad's law practice since his dad had recently died from a boating accident. What he thought would be an easy and quick task, turns into a major investigation that becomes important for him to find the truth. While going through his dad's papers, he discovers two million dollars in a secret bank account. Plus, his father's accident may not have been an "accident." Even worse, his father may have played a role in an international fraud operation. Tom begins to dig for the truth and along the way meets a beautiful, beguiling lady who is as interested and involved in the case as he is. Robert Whitlow is a great Christian fiction writer. I have read several of his books and have loved them all. He tells a great story while interweaving many valuable lessons. His writing is like John Grisham without the language. Whitlow seems to understand what separates Christian fiction from regular fiction is not just the absence of the rough language and vulgar love scenes but it is the inclusion of God throughout the story! Many of our Christian fiction writers are basically fiction writers with no language, but this book emphasizes what is important while telling you a good story. That is Christian fiction! Don't just entertain me but show me that God is important! Teach me a lesson to live by. I received this book free from the publisher through Booksneeze Publishing Group. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255.
