    Addictions/Obsessions drive the story line of "The Right Call" by Kathy Herman

    Kathy Herman's book, The Right Call, the third book of the Sophie Trace Trilogy, which also includes The Real Enemy and The Last Word, picks right up with another thrilling, dangerous episode that includes Police Chief Brill Jessup, which ultimately endangers her family and her daughter's boyfriend, Ethan. If you have read the previous two books, you are well-acquainted with the well-rounded, in-depth issues and characters of the Jessup family.

    The Right Call drives you right into the center of murder by hire, random shootings, greed, addiction, deeply held secrets, and poor choices made by some of her characters, affecting whole town of Sophie Trace.

    Ethan learns of details behind the deaths of five people that could break open the case. However, his decision to disclose this information will affect the lives of others and maybe even himself. Even if he doesn't disclose the information, other lives are still at stake. His walk with the Lord gives him insights and wisdom of what to do in this deadly situation.

    Kathy's novel will show you that we are all addicted to something, and what or Who we choose to follow will make all the difference in the world. Choices we make do not just affect just ourselves-there's a ripple effect of consequences that incorporates others around us. The importance of a relationship with God, so that you can call on Him for wisdom and direction in making decisions in difficult situations, is one of the main insights gleaned from this book. I highly recommend the whole series.

    This book was provided free by Audra of The B & B Media Group, Inc., for my honest review of the book. No monetary incentives were received to gain a positive review by myself.

    Great Plot!

    This is a mistery/christian book written by Kathy Herman in 2010. It was published by David C.Cook also in 2010 and The B&B Media Group was kind enough to send me a copy for reviewing through their blogger book review program.

    This is the third book of a series called Sophie Trace Trilogy.
    The history develops in a city close to the Great Smoky Mountains named Sophie Trace. Our Hero, Ethan Langley, returns from college to spend his summer vacation with his family, and he is willing to see where his friendship with Vanessa Jessup (daughter of police chief Brill Jessup) might lead. But a series of events will shake his world and he will face a hard decision. He can either help the authorities supplying information that will help them breaking a shooting case but at the cost of endangering the life of his loved ones, or he can chose a path that is also equally dangerous. Will he make the right call?

    Although I did not read the first two books of this trilogy, the history holds as a stand alone history. But having liked the style of the author, I am eager to read the first two books of this series. The book goes deep into the problem of addictions, as mentioned by the theme of the book, a passage from 2 Peter 2:19b: "A man is a slave to whatever has mastered him". For our history, some addictions are to gambling, lying, smoking etc.

    In general, this is a very easy reading book (it took me about 13 hours to read it), very entertaining and with an excellent plot. If you enjoy a good suspense, this book is for you.

    Worthy Read

    Thank you to The B & B Media Group, Inc. for my copy of this Christian fiction novel. This is the third installment of the Sophie Trace Trilogy series. However, it can be read without having read the others as the author nicely fills in all gaps.

    The characters are well written. There's Brill, the first female police chief in the town's history. Working in a high pressure position, while being wife to Kurt, mother of three, and grandmother to Carter, gives her depth. The family grows in love and support.

    People begin to be shot down in the streets, for no apparent reason, and it's Brill's responsibility to solve the cases. There are some surprise twists and turns, which I love.

    However, there is too much repetition. This character tells that character about a circumstance, and later, the reader reads yet another conversation about the same topic being discussed between two others.

    Nonetheless, the book is a worthy read, with quite a bit of romance and tracking a slippery killer(s). Discussion questions are included.
