Publisher's Summary

If you had to choose between protecting all you hold dear in your own life or saving an innocent person from going to prison - what would you do?

Thirty-four-year-old Delanie Miller has fled her dark past and is now settled into a quiet life in small-town Redbud, Kentucky. She has friends, a faux "family" who lives in her house, and a loving boyfriend who may soon ask her to marry him. Her aching dream of a husband and future children are about to come true. But protecting this life of promise means keeping a low profile and guarding the truth of her past - from everyone.

The town's peace is shattered when Delanie's friend Clara is murdered, and Delanie finds her body. The police chief quickly zeroes in on Billy King, a simpleminded young man whom Delanie knows would never hurt Clara. She can hunt down evidence and speak out publicly against the chief - only at great risk of her own exposure. But how can Delanie, who suffered such injustice in her past, keep silent now? She must find a way to uncover the real murderer yet save the life she's created - the deceit-ridden life that will forever distance her true self from others and God.

With pause-resisting intensity, Sidetracked hurtles between Delanie's trauma in Redbud and the chaos of her past. Those experiences forced Delanie to reinvent her present - but at what cost to her future?

    Story
    "Well-worth listening to"
    If you could sum up Sidetracked in three words, what would they be?

    gripping, realistic, well-done


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sidetracked?

    The most memorable moment for me was when Delany finally decided to do the right thing, and confessed to her fiancee.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The last, when she has what she wants and the "bad guy" doesn't get away with murder.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but not doable because it was 7+ hours long.


    Any additional comments?

    SIDETRACKED audible book is a gripping tale of a woman's search for happiness and a new life after she escapes the terror and injustices of her past. Delany knows what it's like to be betrayed by friends. She has experienced the excruciating pain of having everything taken from her, including loved ones, and she is well-acquainted with the anger and hopelessness of knowing she has been framed for a crime she didn't commit. Others don't believe her. Though innocent, she is condemned and rejected. Delany hides in the shadows trying to escape her past, even though it follows her. She dreams of an untainted future with a husband and children. In order to have this, she knows she must keep love in her heart instead of giving place to hardness and cynicism. The new life she has built is fragile, but her dreams of happiness, husband, and home are almost within her grasp. The foundations of her life tremble when her friend, Clara, is murdered and an innocent man is arrested for a crime she knows he didn't commit. Delany must decide if she will let this tragedy happen and remain safe in the life she's built, or if she will risk the utter devastation and loss of everything she holds dear to protect an innocent man. Her two worlds are about to collide, and there is no running from this cataclysm.SIDETRACKED is well-written and narrated. Because the story was so believable, I experienced the highs and lows of Delany's emotions, and cheered when the wrongs done to her were made right.I received this book from Book Club Network and the author in exchange for my honest review.

    Story
    "VERY enjoyable!"

    This was my first experience with this author, and I will definitely be purchasing more of her books! I had heard that she is a Christian (she is), and I was confident that I would not be assaulted by vulgar language or descriptions of sexual situations. This book is not preachy. She mentions a few times that Laura "prayed" or "asked God for help". If that type of thing bothers you, then you might consider avoiding this author.
    I agree wholeheartedly with the other positive reviews, stating that the story is "gripping" and "outstanding". Things go from bad to worse for this gal, and your heart goes out to her. I thought I had figured out who the murderer was, but I was dead wrong. (Excuse the pun!) I highly recommend this book.

    "What a GREAT book!!!!!"

    I love Brandilyn Collins' books, and this one is a favorite. Delaney Miller's life just keeps getting more and more complicated. And then the twists and turns kick in! Just when you think things cannot get any worse, guess what ... they do! Brandilyn will keep you guessing until the very end. I highly recommend this book. (A note about the narrator ~ she does an excellent job with the voices of the characters. I only gave her 4 stars because her "reading" voice was a bit too soft for a suspense book.)

    "Outstanding!"

    It took me a little while to get into this book. I got it a while ago but kept listening to other books. I finally got back to it this week. I am so happy I gave it another listen.
    It was a great mystery that kept my attention all the way until the end. I was rooting for the main character.
    I'll be looking for more titles from this author.

    "OUTSTANDING"
    Would you listen to Sidetracked again? Why?

    Yes----This book must become a best seller


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There was only one charater really


    What about Angel Clark’s performance did you like?

    OUTSTANDING--- Ms. Clark's narration brought the story alive. She could not have done a better job. Ms Clark made my emotions go up and down with the story.

    All of the charaters became real. It's like they were taken from real life. The book was so believeable.
