Noah Cathcart, Associate Pastor of his father’s church, is married to Grace, the Pinup Girl of Pastors’ Wives, and they have an 8-year-old son, a 3-legged Chihuahua and a mortgage. So far, Noah’s life has gone according to plan.
One morning, he is rousted out of bed by his estranged brother, Anthony, asking him to help a friend, “Secret Agent” Mel, move into a shelter before he gets himself arrested. Noah heads to the homeless camp, planning to do a good deed and be home before Grace wakes up. Instead, he ends up in jail.
Grace says he’s going to ruin everything. Why isn’t he sticking to the plan? He has to get back on track and he knows it, but he can’t stop thinking about Secret Agent Mel, or Justice, the accordion player he met in the police van, or the little girl wandering through the homeless camp in panda bear slippers. Or her mother.
Church board members aren’t happy and his father is sorely disappointed. His life at home isn’t going any better. Grace isn’t as pious as he thought and his son, Gabe, who sucks his thumb and confides in a ratty, no-eyed rabbit, is in big trouble over what he took to show and tell. Now Anthony wants another favor and this one could threaten Noah’s career and relationship with their father.
Noah’s best friend and fellow Bigfoot Hunter, Charlee Radcliff, who has her own problems, comes to Noah’s aid and they set out to put his life back in order. Will the Bigfoot Code they penned when they were kids help? Or will it take a tragic event to give him the courage to risk his plan and find out who Noah Cathcart is, what he wants in life and what it takes to be a father, husband, brother, son and pastor. The answer may be closer than he thinks.
Bigfoot Hunters Never Lie is a story of friendship and intimacy, forgiving and forgetting, spiritual awakening and the meaning of family.
