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.

Good end (or so I think it is) to a tri-part story. Thank you Terry for a relaxing, profanity-free suspense and love story! I'm sure God is pleased!
I so enjoyed the conclusion to this trilogy. The personal message at end was meaningful! Thank you Terri for being transparent and encouraging us to stay faithful.
Dear Terri, what an absolutely awesome story. And it is so true in all our lives. A much abbreviated testimony is of me as a rebellious girl who God rescued thru the motorbike accident in which I lost half of my right leg. I had to grow up instantly, and thank God for the perfect family who stood by me, and even more for the fact that He has accepted me even though He is the One and Only True God, Creator of all things created, the Giver of Life, and I am just one of billions of people!!!!
The story was beautifully narrated and it was a great blessing to me, and again I pray that many people will accept Christ thru your stories, God bless you!
Best audiobook performance and Ive listened to many of them! And of course Terri Blackstock is a mystery fav because of her bold proclamation of Truth. Loved it!
This book definitely ranks in the top 2 audio books that I have listened to.
I loved the complexity of this story. It was filled with heart break, adventure, and the resilience of many individuals. I also liked that she highlighted the fact that everyone is redeemable if they repent and turn to God.
I loved when Michael Hogan was released from prison and then went to the press conference at the police station. Seeing Michael indemnified and being offered his old position as well as the ability to carry a weapon again. He was allowed to be a consultant so he could help with capturing Leonard Miller.
Redemption available to those who repent. Judgement of the unrepentant is sure.
Love this series of characters.
Holly Cramer seems to be standard person who always makes the wrong decisions. Without being a spoiler I will say that this is much better than the last Terri Blackstock I read. This one evolved in a very good story, lots of action. Good prevails! I was very impressed with the narrative at the end of the book from the author - thank you for maintaining the Christian aspect. Looking forward to seeing more work like this.
