A Bloggy Book Tour ::: The Real Enemy

Another well-written suspense that I have recently enjoyed! This story centers around forgiveness and the bitterness that we tend to hang on to when we have been wronged. How, when we don't let go of that bitterness and turn it over to God, it festers and ferments inside us ... and healing cannot take place until we clean it all out and let the Father do His work within us. Wonderful reminders about how the Lord repeatedly forgives us woven througout this books - and a great mystery that needs to be solved as well!

Brill Jessup just became the first female police chief in Sophie Trace, Tennessee, and is riding on the credentials of a stellar eighteen-year career on the Memphis police force. She may be a pro at finding clues, but she tends to ignore the obvious in her personal life. And she would rather work than deal with the bitterness she feels about her husband Kurt's infidelity. Kurt, is weighed down by her unrelenting anger as he struggles to let God redeem the stupidest mistake he ever made. He is genuinely contrite and making every effort to show his commitment to Brill. But she hides behind her badge and her bitterness, deciding that moving her family away from Memphis is the only change she needs to make. So why can't Brill get over this anger?

Before she ever has time to unpack her boxes, people start disappearing. Lots of them. Seven people in seven days To complicate matters, a local legend has many residents believing that the cause is unearthly─tied to the “red shadows,” or spirits of the departed Cherokee who once inhabited the land.

While Brill draws on all of her experience and instinct to solve the case, she must confront an enemy that threatens everything she holds dear─one that cannot be stopped with a badge and a gun. She is forced to confront the real enemy.
