Publisher's Summary

With the exception of a double homicide twenty-three years ago, nothing big happened in tiny Franklin, Florida. Most of Officer Penelope Chance's cases were relatively minor incidents. In spite of her prayers, the truth was sometimes she wished a case like this would cross her desk. Something to get her blood pumping and give her brain a good workout.

So when she gets the call about an attempted murder, she can't help but get excited... But when she learns who the victim is... And who's suspected of the crime... her blood runs cold. What starts out as an attempted murder quickly turns into a murder mystery that's going to leave Penelope questioning her faith in the people around her and in herself.

Will Penelope find the culprit and the truth behind everything that's happening in her peaceful little town, or will the case go cold and land in the unsolved mysteries file? Is this a test from God for Penelope and everyone else involved or just one of many bumps in the road to come?

Find out in One Chance, the best-selling debut mystery novel from Christian fiction author Daniel Patterson.

    Story
    "Its in His Hands"
    What made the experience of listening to One Chance the most enjoyable?

    I could feel the characters in he way Mim Drew told the story, the audio made it more real. As I listened I kept wondering as a police office how did Penny keep her faith?
    I'm sure at times it was challenged, but it certainly didn't take anything from the storyline.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love Inspiration/Christian Fiction with some mystery thrown in.


    What about Mim Drew’s performance did you like?

    I did like it, she has a voice that pulls you in.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Penelope's First Case

    Story
    "Narration made this book a little slower"

    I am not sure if it was the story or the narrator, but this book lags slowly in the beginning. It does pick up in the end, but I almost gave up early on. The narrator reads some of the story almost as if she wants to enunciate EVERY word emphatically. That wore on me as the story continued. She tended toward monotone, no inflection. Otherwise, I think the story would have had a better flow. Characters are believable, and I did not guess the ending. That is good.

    Story
    "Wouldn't recommend"

    This was a mediocre "read" and I felt the narrators delivery to be very monotonous and dreary, although she was articulate/clear sounding. Overall, not very creative or suspenseful read. Just can't recommend. sorry
