The story of the Crossroads Crisis Center continues with the second book in the series, Deadly Ties. I liked the first book, Forget Me Not, but Deadly Ties was exceptional! Such a great story. I’m looking forward to reading Book 3, Not This Time (available Spring 2012).
Though Deadly Ties is a sequel, the story is self-contained. You don’t have to read Forget Me Not to understand it. Characters from the first book are included in this second story and, in a minor way, their story continues, yet enough detail is given that new readers won’t be lost.
The Crossroads Crisis Center is an agency in Florida created to help people whose lives are in danger, who have immediate, desperate needs. Lisa Harper was a client, became an employee, and has just become a doctor on staff. Deadly Ties is her story, past and present. By her side is Mark Taylor, a former Shadow Watcher now head of security for the owner of the Crossroads Crisis Center. He loves Lisa, but feels he must earn her love, rather than just accept it, and fears failing her in any way. When Lisa’s situation becomes desperate, both characters have much to learn about God’s perfect provision and unconditional love.
If you enjoy suspense thrillers with a hint of romance and a deep Christian message, I recommend Deadly Ties. I thank Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Group for sending this fun book for my review.
