Overview

The young girl with the Bohemian style was on the floor where she’d fallen, between Parker's computer case and her file cabinet. She wore a long, flowing skirt—lavender, the color of calm—and camel-colored Uggs. She lay on her back, her long, wavy blonde hair matted with blood.

For struggling singer/songwriter Parker James, the music business has just turned deadly. Her desk in the reception area of a busy recording studio has become a crime scene, and Parker finds herself drawn into a mystery where nothing is as it seems.

Unraveling the truth puts her own life at risk when she uncovers high-level industry corruption and is terrorized by a menacing stalker. As the danger escalates, Parker begins to question her dreams, her future, and even her faith.

Double Minds is a double treat—combining a compelling suspense novel with an inside look at the world of the Christian music industry in Nashville. Terri Blackstock grabs readers at page one and keeps them riveted until the final plot twist is untangled.

This book is a quick and easy read that keeps you engaged for the entire book. The story line is original and if you like music, you will enjoy that the book uses the music industry as a backdrop. There are good family relationships,and interesting characters, but best of all, it is a God honoring book.

We all have friends like the ones Terri Blackstock introduces us to; however most of us don't have this kind of danger around us! A fun read showing us how we get wrapped up in self and our appearance; only to find that reality isn't always what we think it should be.

Terri Blackstock has written another great book. The characters are warm and engaging with real life issues. Struggles which are inherent in a lot of lives will give readers a way to connect. The plot draws you in with hints and clues to the mystery. I don't recommend this book for younger readers, but it would be great for older teens to see that the lifestyle of musicians isn't as glamorous as the media portrays. Well done.

This is one terrific book with a fascinating plot, well-rounded characters, a steady pace, a few twists and turns, and a satisfying ending. What more could a reader want? I began reading it this morning, and I did not stop until I finished it. I did not want to stop! The protagonist, Parker James, is a female Christian song writer who lives in Nashville. I learned so much about the Christian music industry: song writing, photographing the album cover and publicity shots, recording a CD, contracts, going out on tour, performing, and the interaction between singer and band. Parker's brother is a police officer, and the reader is treated to a glimpse inside the minds of officers as they work to solve a crime. Without being "preachy" appropriate biblical references are interspersed throughout the novel. Study questions are at the back of the book. This is a winner, and I give it a big thumbs up!

Slow first half; good action in the second half. Unlike Blackstock's other Christian suspense books, and I've read nearly all now, this one was very slow to get started. Yes there was a murder at the very beginning, but for the next 150 pages, I could have used this book to cure insomnia. There was hardly any action, and the newly minted detective brother of the protagonist hardly seemed to know how to investigate. No wonder she had so little faith in him. He did seem to have a lot of spare time to fill in as a musician for her, however. But, the second half really moved. There was good action, and it wasn't until the real killer was revealed that I knew who the killer was. The last half was vintage Blackstock. I just wish the first half had as much punch.

Terri Blackstock is a fantastic Christian suspense author. The best, in my opinion. She starts her novels off straight away with the suspense, keeps the twists, turns, ins and outs coming through out each page, never revealing too much, too soon. By the final pages of the story, the reader is left on the edge of their seat, trying to slow their breathing down. Double Minds is thrilling awesome. Parker James, receptionist for a Christian recording studio, gets a call from her detective brother. The reason? A murder at the studio. She leaves her concert to go to the studio. The victim? An intern receptionist filling in for Parker. It really throws her world for a loop, especially when her home is invaded. But, the question is....why are they after Parker? Why is someone invading her home, trying to kill her, stealing her music? What has she done? Those are some of the many questions answered in the pages of the awesometastic novel. It's a stand alone, so you aren't coming in in the middle of a story line. It's got fantastic suspense, page-turning plot line, gripping characters and it draws you to the heart of Parker's story. A mix of faith in God to pull you through, betrayal, forgiveness, heartache and family, this is a story that you won't want to miss. I definitely, highly, recommend this with a 5 Book rating. It will send you on a spin to find out who the killer is, and will leave you hungry for more Blackstock work. I can't wait to read more of her work! Why are you still sitting there? Shouldn't you be hunting down Double Minds??? It will so take you on a whirl wind roller coaster ride!
