She is a successful attorney who has just had enough of marriage to her attorney husband, Lawrence. For reasons unbeknownst to the reader (until the very end), Deborah feels that she has to leave Lawrence and change her identity. She moves to Indiana and finds a job working for Emmet. As Annie, Deborah feels pretty safe but enrolls herself in self-defense classes and continues to fear her husband will find her.
This is a very fast paced novel full of adventure, romance, and mystery. It keeps you on your toes wondering who might die (the over tells you someone will!) and how they might possibly breathe their last breath. I predicted who it might be but not the manner in which it would happen. I fell in love with several characters in this book. My only complaint is that there are several typos and grammatical errors throughout.
I recommend this book to those who like a good mystery!
You might want to know that there is strong language, mention of Mass (not real heavy on the religious issues), and intimate scenes.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. (less)

She has a church bomber on her hands and when Ferguson calls to ask her to help out, she's more than ready to work with her former partner again.
Isabelle and Michael have just lost their dad, but they aren't really grieving. After all, he beat them and their mother so many times growing up, he deserves to die. Why can't people at church see that he wasn't the saint that everyone makes him out to be? Isabelle is also dealing with a husband who's become very elusive. He's never home for dinner anymore yet when she's not there to make him dinner, her life crumbles. What's with the double standard Scott?
This book does deal heavily with Dinah working to get her life back on the right track, which includes loving and serving her Lord and Savior. She's not opposed to sharing her faith with others either. Can Dinah save another church from being bombed? Will she come through in the end or will this be her last job?
I have come to really love Julie Cave's work and I look forward to more in this series. Somehow I had overlooked The Shadowed Mind so as soon as I finished reading Pieces of Light, I immediately purchased Th Shadowed Mind to read! It's equally as great as this one!
Be prepared to finish this one in a couple of settings. It's fast paced, hair raising adventure will keep you turning the pages!!
Many thanks to Jennifer White of New Leaf Publishing for providing a review copy. Also my thanks to Julie Cave for the tweets! (less)

This is my first read by Wanda Dyson and it won't be my last! Looking at her website, I see several other books that interest me! You can read an excerpt of this book by clicking
