Publisher's Summary

Stephanie Walker lives a peaceful life until her undependable and dishonest father, Marty Walker, suddenly arrives at her home, pleading with Stephanie to come with him to his Harrington Lodge in the beautiful Ozarks. Stephanie, suspicious of her father's motives, declines the invitation.

After his departure, Stephanie discovers the diamond necklace she borrowed from her aunt is missing. Racing through a raging thunderstorm, Stephanie drives to the lodge to reclaim the stolen item.

But when she arrives, Stephanie finds her father dead, her aunt's diamond necklace gone, and a pair of handcuffs fitted just for her. Stephanie's claims of innocence fail to sway the local sheriff, who produces several pieces of evidence linking her to the murder. With a shaky alibi and a vindictive stepmother, Stephanie turns to a lodge employee for help. But will Brad Wilson's assistance lead Stephanie to the real killer, or prove to be her undoing? Like a gathering storm on a warm summer evening, Stephanie's world darkens until she's forced to turn to the one true source of knowledge. But what she learns about her father, family, and her own inner demons is more horrifying than the lies she's come to believe. The truth can set you free. It can also kill you.

Great Christian book

Had to change the speed to 125 to make the narrator listenable. Other than that it was an excellent book. who was the bad guy...trying to kill the family? This is an excellent mystery...with an ending I was very happy with. I highly recommend this book! And it's a clean book!!

The Gathering Storm

I enjoyed the story very much. There were many twists and turns in the storyline before the final reveal of the killer. My only complaint was the overdone slowness of the reading depicting the Ozark drawl (I guess). I live in SE Missouri and I haven’t heard them speak this way when I was there. It was just too slow for listening. It was a little aggravating trying to listen to it, but the story did more than make up for it. I would still recommend listening to it for the storyline itself.

A mystery to pursue

This book kept me turning the pages. I thought I knew who, but I just wasn’t sure. I enjoyed the background, and the location. The characters were somewhat challenging. Then there was the adventure. And then I figured it out! Well I thought I had. Lol.
