About the book:
To save her husband and son, Audrey Bofinger must rescue her enemy.
|The Bofinger family has lost their church ministry in a scandal exposed by Officer Jack Mansfield. Hoping to heal and to restore their reputation, Audrey, Geoff, and their son Ed take over a failing bakery in the small community.Driving to the bakery one morning, blinded by fog, Audrey hits a motor scooter owned by Jack’s wife, Julie. The mangled scooter is crushed and bloody. But Julie is nowhere to be found. Her disappearance coincides with a sudden illness that nearly cripples Audrey.Jack believes the Bofingers have hurt Julie to take revenge on him, but the evidence dries up and her trail goes cold. At a breaking point, Jack takes the tiny bakery and its patrons hostage, issuing only one demand: Audrey has six hours to return Julie to him or lose Geoff and Ed forever.
With only an excruciating and intuitive gift, an ex-con, and Julie’s estranged daughter to help search for clues, Audrey starts the search of her life for a woman who has vanished like the fog.
Well-known to critics and reviewers, Erin Healy has established herself as an award-winning editor and a best-selling co-author with Ted Dekker. Healy received wide acclaim for her two debut novels Never Let You Go and The Promises She Keeps. Her work focuses on the psychological and spiritual, driven by high moral stakes.

Once again Healy compiles a solid story of suspense and thrills. The story was complex but satisfying. I did find the opening a bit slow and some parts hard to engage, but no big–the story was absolutely engrossing all the same. Healy definitely knows how to write villains in a way that feels like a splinter. . .then a wedge. . .then a full-blown plank of pain and aggravation. Loved the premise for the heroine–intriguing and compelling!! Heartbreaking issues in this story with a triumph-over-tragedy ending.
Overall a very good read.
