Murder and mystery continue in the fourth book of the Cape Refuge series. A famous mystery writer has just moved to Cape Refuge when a teenage girl is found murdered. Sheila Caruso - ex-con, mother to Sadie and Caleb, and resident of Hanover House - is working for the writer when she discovers that a scene in one of his novels matches the crime scene. When Police Chief Cade and Blair Owens discover a second dead teenager - mirroring a murder in another of the eccentric writer’s books - Cade is drawn into a web of trickery and deceit. Evidence turns up in Cade’s own truck, and suddenly he becomes the number-one suspect. Cade tries to clear his name, but when 18-year-old Sadie Caruso disappears, tensions mount to a fever pitch.
Can Cade find the real killer before Sadie winds up dead? Is the novelist a demented killer, or a hapless victim? And what does Sadie’s own mother have to do with the crimes? Secrets are uncovered while lessons are learned about the sins of the father being visited upon his children. Will the consequences of Sheila’s life be fatal, or is there redemption and mercy for her and her children?
Take another trip to Cape Refuge.

I love all of Teri Blackstocks books. I listen to them as soon as they come available on audio. I don't have time to read but love listening to her stories. I have listened to all she has on audio and anxiously await the next one. Her stories are always interesting and full of suspense.
Terri Blackstock has done it again!!! Hated to see this series end! This book is full of action and adventure, I couldn't stop listening! She does a wonderful job of intertwining Faith into a worldly view! If you want books that are action packed, have romance, and suspence, then Terri Blackstock is who you want to listen to!
I love all kinds off books. Down home family stories, action, some sci-fi. historical novels. and survival after catastrophe.
Have not read the print version of this series.
Sheila's determination to find her "girls". Pure "mama bear" instincts.
It's very hard for a female to pull off a southern mans voice. She did her best. I would like if there was a woman and a man performer. It did not hurt the performance very much though.
No extremes, but there are very touching moments throughout the story.
One more Cape Refuge book would be great! I love the island and the people. You become very attached to the "community".
It was an excellent story, clean language & well written, so out of at least 150 Christian novels, it would be in the top 25 of my favorites
I might only compare it to the others that Terri Blackstock has written as she has her own distinctive style. This series had its own sort of special love being shared between characters that also shared extreme hardship & grief. It was very good.
She is a better than average reader. At first I thought her accent was a little too southern, but by the middle of the first book she proved to be very talented in creating each character with her voice.

I am fairly new to audiobooks but with my hour drive to and from work, I love these. Makes my drive so much more bearable, hardly notice the distance.
I want more of this series..just love the characters. The storyline is wonderful, full of suspense.
Love Renee Raudman, narrator. She does just enough to differentiate the characters and make them real.
I loved how the characters have grown throughout the books and how I'm just as interested in their relationships as I am the mystery... Just enough to keep you coming back for more...
I love Blair and Cade... What an odd mix and match but how perfect they really are. Such real characters. Blair's attitude has grown on me and I find myself laughing out loud.
Same as above
A lot of Christian reference which I don't mind but should be mentioned..
Where is the next one?
all of it
not really but a good read
I'm not one for writing reviews but I did enjoy this book
Good mystery plot without being fearful of cuss words or sex scenes surprising you.
All of Teri Blackstock's books as well as Francine Rivers and Dee Henderson.
