This is the beginning of a new series by Ms Sleeman. A series about a law enforcement family and their lives.
This one gives us Gavin McKade and Lexie Grant. Prior to leaving town, Gavin was deputy and his Dad the sheriff. The two never saw eye to eye and Gavin, and after an incident that deeply affected Gavin, he decided to leave and become an FBI agent far away from his hometown. Lexie chose to stay in town but never forgave him for leaving her and her young brother.
Now he’s back to investigate Lexie’s father, but arrives right after Dr Grant was killed in front of Lexie.
Though the story is about what exactly Dr Grant was involved in, it’s really about family dynamics, about how the relationships between sons and fathers are not always easy. The parent’s expectations and those of the son clash, sometimes because they are so much alike.
The author also delves on how feelings of abandonment can hinder a relationship to the extend that for fear of being hurt all over again, one might not give it a second chance.
In the midst of all this angst, the suspense keeps you wondering what’s going to happen next and in the end, will Lexie , Gavin and his Dad find peace, faith in God , acceptance and love.
Looking forward to future stories in this series.
I was gifted a copy of this book. The opinions expressed are solely my own.
