A poisoned past. A bitter present. Is Celia a murderer...or a victim?
Detective Stan Sheperd lies comatose in the hospital, a victim of arsenic poisoning. The Newpointe police have a suspect: Celia Shepherd, Stan's wife.
Celia is no stranger to such charges. When her first husband died of poisoning, a technicality scuttled the case against her, and Celia got off scot-free. Now it looks like the same old story - only this time, the motive appears plain. An old flame has moved into town under circumstances bound to raise suspicion. And that's just for starters. More evidence is gathering that can put Celia away for good.
But attorney Jill Clark thinks the pieces of the puzzle fit together a bit too neatly. Either her client's Christian faith is a sham, or she's the victim of a deadly frame up - and the real killer is still afoot.
Shadow of Doubt is book two in the Newpointe 911 suspense series by award-winning novelist Terri Blackstock. Newpointe 911 offers taut, superbly crafted novels of fear, faith, and close-knit, small-town relationships, seasoned with romance and tempered by insights into the nature of relationships, redemption, and the human heart.

Yes, it was a well written suspense, mystery novel.
It showed how easily conclusions can be jumped to when the right "evidence" is presented.
Aunt Aggie's funeral.
Was disappointed in the Preacher, Nick. Seemed he whimped out as a pastor, not deep seated in faith as a pastor, or a solid christian should be.
I love to read. So, Audible has given me a chance to "read" when I normally couldn't. I really enjoy it.
I've enjoyed the writings of Terri Blackstock. The 911 series includes God's Word and Love intertwined within the stories. You get to know and love her characters. I figured out who the murderer was early on, but I wasn't positive until the end. Looking forward to the next book. Going to download it now.
I really have enjoyed this series. However the performance on all of them will only get 3 stars because the portrayal of some of the characters sound older than they really are and Stan almost sounds .....dumb. I hate to use that word but can't think of another one to describe it. I will still finish the series.
