This was an excellent murder mystery thriller. I LOVED it. I won't be able to wait 24 hours before starting the third. It is so suspenseful the whole way through. I thought I knew who did it but that changed within minutes because of all the unexpected turns. We also learn that if we put God in control the outcome will change majorly. If you do decide to read this I strongly suggest reading the first book "Private Justice" first. It ranked as sky-high as this one.
Terri Blackstock's novels have got be some of the greatest mysteries I have ever read. Though she may not get as much publicity due to the fact that her books are from a Christian perspective, they are none the less astounding. I loved this book. It was interesting from front to back. You are constantly wondering if Celia will ever get out of the mess that she is in. It also is amazing how Blackstock shows that putting your trust in God is more rewarding than we think it is. A wonderful book and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes a good mystery.
Cilia Sheperd's husband, Stan, becomes violently ill. It is discovered that he was a victim of arsenic poisoning. Who could do such a thing? With no suspects, Cilia becomes the prime suspect. At first, everyone is sure she is innocent. But when it is found out that she was accused of this same crime years earlier, even her family begins to wonder.... Shadow of A Doubt will keep you on the edge of your seat. This book is very suspenseful and will keep you guessing to the end. It will also strengthen your faith in Christ. A must read for everyone who likes a good mystery.
WOW! I could not put this book down. I sat down and started reading and when I finished, it was 1:30am. Just when I thought I knew who the suspect was, the author would bring an interesting twist into the plot. What a moment it is when the suspect is revealed and you have "correctly" solved the case! It keeps you on the edge of your seat, as well as gently reminds us that we don't fight our own battles, God does. This was my first Terri Blackstock book that I've read and I promise I will read more of her work. It's a MUST-READ!!!
I loved this book! I am in the 7th grade and this was one of the most intriugeing books that I have ever read and It is by far my favorite! I strongly suggest that you buy this book! I guarrentee that you will not be able to put it down!
I have read all of Terri Blackstock's books and have enjoyed all of them. Her mystery books are all but impossible to put down, and this one does not disappoint in this area! I never guessed for a moment who the true "guilty" person was. The book also shows how God is always with us, even in those times where it just doesn't "feel" like He is. A great book, I highly recommend it. I would recommend reading the first book in this series, "Private Justice", before reading this one.
The cultural setting for this book sets the stage for the fast moving drama. The characters' well developed personalities let the reader experience the feelings and reactions to the suspense and relief. The Christian point of view and God's overall dominion is very encouraging. Good reading for anyone who has ever been dissapointed or faced an unfair circumstance. The Afterword is very worthwhile reading.
If there was only one good book without cussing and sexual encounters this is the best!! I am 15 and Love this book I recommend it for everyone!! It has good values of where faith and prayer come in and how well it can help you. This great book with keep you on the edge of your seat for hours at a time. It is so good that you won't be able to wait to flip to the next page!!
Suspenseful from the very first page, this Christian mystery is a page-turner that you will not want to put down. The character development within the series is wonderful and right from the start you identify with certain people in the Newpointe 911 series. Blackstock is a masterful mystery writer. I recommend this book and all those in the 911 series. It's a must read!
I was so happy to find books without one single cuss word or sexual content. I have read three of Terri Blackstock's books in the past two weeks. I read Shadow of Doubt in one day. I just could not put it down. I can't wait to start reading another book by Terri. From what I have read so far I would recommend all of Terri's books.
