Book Review - Twisted Innocence


Holly Cramer's past choices have finally caught up to her, but she never expected them to endanger her baby.

Though Holly's stumbled through most of her adult life as a party girl, she longs to live a more stable life for her daughter. Then police show up to question her about the whereabouts of Creed Kershaw, Lily's father. She has kept his identity a secret from friends and family---she never even told him about the pregnancy. Now he's a person of interest in a drug-related murder case.

Determined to keep him out of their lives and turn him over to police, Holly uses her private investigating skills to search for him. But her bravado backfires when he turns the tables and takes her and the baby hostage. As desperate hours tick by, Holly realizes his connection to Leonard Miller-the man who has gunned down several members of her family. Creed claims he's innocent and that Miller is after him too. His gentleness with Lily moves her, but she can't trust a man who has held her at gunpoint . . . even if he reminds her so much of herself.

Dangers old and new threaten Holly and her baby, and lives are demanded as sacrifices for love. Through a complex web of mistakes and regret, redemption is the one hope Holly has left to hold on to.

Terri Blackstock is one of my very favorite authors. Her books never fail to capture my attention and keep it. This book is definitely one of her best and I enjoyed it thoroughly! It's part of the "Moonlighters Series" but, not to worry, Terri is such a great writer, you will never feel lost because you didn't read the others in the series. Of course, you're going to want to, because they are excellent!

Holly is a single mother, working toward turning her life around after giving her life to Jesus. She had been a wild child after her father left the family and now she's trying hard to get her life in order. She is working during the day for her sister, Cathy's fiance Michael, who owns a PI business. It's not enough for her to take care of her child properly, so she drives a cab at night while her sister, Juliet, watches her baby. The book opens with her getting robbed and beaten after picking up a couple of meth heads.

Michael is in jail after breaking his probation while helping to save Juliet's children. He is a former police officer who really shouldn't be in jail and Cathy, who is a lawyer, is working to get him probation. They have been set up and their family members killed by one Leonard Miller, a horrible drug lord who brings drugs into Florida. 

This is a fast moving story - full of thrills and mystery and some romance. You'll find yourself pulling for this amazing family and their friends as they struggle to live their lives that have changed by the actions of this horrible drug lord. I enjoyed this book so much and stayed up almost all night reading it one night! The story will draw you in and won't let go, even at the last page. 

I also really was touched and moved by Terri Blackstock's "Note from the Author". She touched on things that I myself am struggling with and she had so much encouragement to give. Her words won't leave me as they were so encouraging and honest. 

I highly, highly recommend this wonderful book! You'll enjoy it immensely! I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
