I have to tell you about a new book that is being released tomorrow! It is by Terri Blackstock and many of you may already know her. I loved reading Shadow in Serenity this fall. I have a friend who loves Terri and is going to share her books with me. Isn't that what friends do?
Well let me tell you about 'Downfall'. It is a great quick read but full of twist and turns. I loved the realism of a family dealing with recovery as the focal point to the story. It is hard to have trust once it has been broken down. And during that time of rebuilding many of us tend to jump to conclusions a lil too often. I know that while Dear Hubby was in recovery that we had many a time when he would be doing everything right. But I would still be nervous that it was all going to fall apart. AA helped Dear Hubby. He has been sober for over 5 years now. I am very proud of him. I on the other hand had to learn to trust with time. Learn that his word was good and that his actions were noble. That is just what is going on in Downfall with Emily's mom. And it is very hard to do when someone is plotting to do everything they can to make it all come apart. Even taking revenge through others. This is a good read....one that I am glad to have had in my hands.
Summary: The final book in Terri's Intervention series, DOWNFALL follows Emily Covington, who has turned her life around after a drug addiction, but her family still has trouble trusting her. Though Emily has committed herself to a year-long treatment program and has been sober for almost a year beyond that, even her mother walks on eggshells around her, fearing she'll relapse. After her behavior during her drug years, Emily realizes she has a lot to prove.
When police discover a homemade bomb under Emily's car, and she then learns the wife of one of her friends was murdered that same morning, she knows things are deadly serious.
But who wants Emily dead? And why?
A conversation she had with two men, an Alfred Hitchcock movie, and a plan for a double murder all conspire for one explosive ride ... and Emily is the only one who can identify the killer and save the life of the next potential victim.
As she frantically works to solve this ever more complicated puzzle, Emily finds herself playing right into the killer's hands.
