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!
Love the author and the Cape Refuge series. Terri Blackstock gets you from page 1 and keeps your attention throughout the book. Full of suspense and surprises.
Say something about yourself!
This is the best four-part series I have read. I laughed aloud and also shed some tears. I love it when an author writes in such a way to bring about such emotions.
My husband and I loved every minute of this performance. The narrator is extremely talented at doing many different voices. ¨The mystery in the story is very well hidden. We like this author because her stories are very clean and yet very suspenseful and VERY clever . We were in suspense to the very end.
Thank you Terri for the awesome Cape Refuge series. Each an every on ministered to me and reminded me that we indeed serve an Awesome Mighty God no matter the circumstances. When I've got enough money I will definitely buy the physical books of this and the 911 series for my sister, as I know it will give her the spiritual food she so desperately needs. May God continue to bless you with more stories, and in every area of you life, God bless you, Anthea
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.
