About the book:
When twenty-four-year-old Hawk Cummings wakes up by Beaver Lake at sunset, all he remembers is a dream about a spider that spewed venom. Then he realizes that Kennedy—the young woman he broke every vow to have an affair with—is gone. He rushes to her house only to find it empty. No furniture. No pictures. No sign that anyone lived there.
Ashamed and confused, Hawk decides not to report anything to the sheriff. Then Hawk realizes that someone else in town knows what happened to his lover. He begins to fear for Kennedy’s life—and his own.
I didn’t know what to expect from this book when I first saw it because this is a new to me author. I was pleasantly surprised by just how much I liked the storyline and the characters. This is the third book in the, Ozark Mountain Trilogy and I found it is written so thoroughly that I knew who the characters were and their relationship to each other without having read the first two books.
The plot in this book is pretty terrific and kept me engaged throughout. I loved that the friends and family of Hawk rallied around him and cared so much about what he was going through. They don’t shy away when he did things they didn’t approve of but they certainly are in his corner no matter what.
The Cummings family are hard workers, enjoy their family dinners and are strong in their faith. Who wouldn’t want to be in a family like that?
Ms. Herman blends family ,faith, mystery and suspense perfectly in this novel which is exactly the kind of book I love to read. If you are already a fan of his author or looking for a new to you author, then I recommend this book to you.
I received a complimentary copy of this book and was under no obligation to write a review. All opinions are my own.
