Blair Owens never understood her parents or their ministry. Yet when the city council threatens to close down the halfway house run by Thelma and Wayne Owens, Blair rises to their defense in CAPE REFUGE (4). She and her sister Morgan are determined to see the house remain open until a brutal murder sets off a chain of events no one can control. The murder weapon belongs to Blair's brother-in-law and other evidence is stacking up against him. Will Blair and Morgan be able to find the killer before he strikes again? Page-turning suspense and finely-tuned characters invite readers to step into Blair and Morgan's shoes and try to solve this believable whodunit. Hopefully, Terri Blackstock's book two will have more of the sweet budding romance between Blair and Chief Cade. (Apr., 400 pp., $12.99)
