This is the final novel in a trilogy of riveting suspense stories which can each also be read alone. Amy Silver is the cousin of Carol in Secrets and Lies and the formidable Harry in Heaven's Prey. She was involved in a horrific light plane crash in which she was seriously injured, and her pilot fiance killed. Amy comes across with a very likeable combination of strength and frailty, especially since she needs to walk with the aid of a cane after a couple of years of intense physiotherapy.

This author knows how to write a good suspense story, and she didn't disappoint with this one. This is another edge of the seat read that kept me reading to see what could possibly happen next as Amy, the main character, trues to discover what really happened in the plane crash that she and her fiance were in. The story line kept me guessing and it has an ending that I didn't see coming. This is the third book in the Redemption Edge series. It can be read as a standalone, but I definitely recomm ...more

This is the third book in Janet Sketchley’s Redemption’s Edge series and it’s another page-turner. I thoroughly enjoyed Without Proof, just as I did its two predecessors, Heaven’s Prey and Secrets and Lies. I guess you could say I have become a fan of this author’s work.
In Without Proof, Amy Silver had been in an airplane crash with her fiancé, Gilles Renaud, who died as a result. With no family around, Gilles’ best friend, Michael Stratton and his great Aung Bay had taken Amy in to nurse her ba

In this final story in the Redemption's Edge series, the author takes us back to Nova Scotia where Amy Silver is still recovering from the plane crash that took the life of her fiancé, Gilles, two years earlier. With her mother passed away and her father estranged, Gilles best friend, Michael, and Michael's great-aunt Bay have taken Amy in during her own recovery. Amy manages Michael's art business and has begun to fall for him when someone tips her off that Gilles' death may not have been an ac ...more

This is a wonderful romantic suspense novel.

I sympathized with Amy Silver from the moment I met her. She is such a well developed character carrying so much hurt and confusion. She has chronic pain to deal with on a daily basis. Along with that is heartache both from the accident she lost her fiancé in and from her childhood. She wants desperately to truly belong and know that she is loved for who she is. Part of what prevents this is her family background.

The first half of the book focuses main

Two years after her fiancé Gilles died beside her in the cockpit of the plane he crash-landed on a Nova Scotia highway, Amy Silver is getting back on her feet emotionally and physically. She has even taken off the gold chain that held Gilles’ engagement ring. Then comes the day reporter Troy Hicks makes an unwelcome appearance at the Stratton Art Gallery where Amy works.

He is full of questions. Despite that the police investigation concluded the crash was an accident, is Amy sure? He’s heard ru

I was happy to have this author offer me a review copy of her newest book, as I had enjoyed reading and reviewing her other two novels in the Redemption's Edge series.

This novel is romantic suspense and the main character is related to the ones in the first two books. Janet has again come up with some great characters and an even better plot than the first two books. Authors often tend to get better with each novel that write, and Janet proves this true in this third novel she has written.

Without Proof is book three of a trilogy by Canadian author Janet Sketchley. Even though it is the third in the series, the author gives enough information so that the first two books are not necessary for the reader to easily follow and enjoy the storyline. This novel can stand on its own.

In Without Proof a young woman, Amy, is recovering from serious injuries she suffered in a plane crash two years before. Her fiancé, Gilles, did not survive it, so she is left alone and grieving. Her fiancé’s

This third book of Janet Sketchley’s Redemption’s Edge series follows in the footsteps of the other two. Although some of the characters from the first two books, (Heaven’s Prey and Secretes and Lies) do appear in minor roles, the book can and does stand on its own.
Amy Silver has lost her fiancé, Gilles, and, after spending time in hospital, finds she has nowhere to go. Gilles’ best friend, Michael, and his aunt offer to provide her with a home and a job as Michael’s assistant. When a reporter i

This book pushed all the right buttons to get me reading: cosy mystery; Christian; Canadian. Once I started, the suspense and deft pacing kept me going.
Amy Silver and her fiancé were in a plane crash that left him dead and her with a painful hip that is a constant reminder of what happened.
As it she needed reminders from her hip; the emotional wounds are far more painful and slow in healing. She has quit her bank job to live in the Nova Scotia home of her fiancé's best friend and his aunt. She

Without Proof, by Janet Sketchley, is the final book in the Redemption's Edge trilogy. While the novel can stand on its own, it offers tantalizing references to characters in her previous books, The novels are best read as a set: Heaven's Prey, Secrets and Lies and Without Proof. While Without Proof is full of suspense and danger, it is less intense than the other two. Janet weaves a love story throughout the book and describes it so well that as a reader, I could palpably feel the tension betw ...more

One of my favorite Christian suspense novels is Heaven's Prey, book one in Sketchley's Redemption's Edge Series, so I actually worried that she might not be able to match the quality of writing, level of suspense, and complexity of themes in the remainder of her series. Without Proof certainly holds its own. Amy Silver, likable, bright, and determined, finds herself in a situation where she doesn't know where to turn, who to trust, and even how to feel, but she steadily follows the clues to her ...more

I will give this book 2 1/2-3 stars

I am not sure what to think of this book. There are parts I really enjoyed,then there are portions that I believed the author could have done a better job with
I liked the innocence of the main character Amy, understood how she felt unworthy because of the situation surrounding her parents. However,I thought the lack of emotions from Michael didn't represent that of an artist. The real let down for me was the plot towards the end of the book.

Without Proof is an awesome Christian suspense romance set in Nova Scotia, Canadai. The Maine characters are Amy, Michael, Emily, and Aunt Bay. This book is an edge of the seat page turner with so many twist, turns, and surprises. The ending is not anything that I could see coming. I highly recommend this book and author, Janer Sketchley.

What a nail biter suspense story with plenty of romance to satisfy we romantics. Christian theme throughout story with strong characters and a great story line. I’ll definitely be looking for more books from this author.

A mystery that will be sure to be a page turner. Who is doing what and why? You won’t know until it is over. This is a great story!

Book Review

The characters were not developed enough with time to see real change in each to be believable. The story plot seemed stiff and too ‘sensational’. Not enough scene change. Everything took place at Michael’s house.
