he third book in Blackstock's Restoration series takes readers
back to Oak Hollow eight months
after power has ceased to function
around the world. While it's great to
reconnect with familiar characters
and get caught up in their situations, their dilemmas are now commonplace, and the mystery portion of the plot is the central feature, which causes the story to lose some of the spark of the previous book.
Deni Branning becomes Mark's champion, but she's fighting an almost impossible battle. When things go from bad to worse, the town must find a way to band together before they tear each other apart. (ZONDERVAN, Jul., 352 pp., $14.99)
