Indivisible by Kristen Heitzmann ~ review
An inseparable bond.
An insatiable force.
Battling his own personal demons, Police Chief Jonah Westfall knows the dark side of life and has committed himself to eradicating it. When a pair of raccoons are found mutilated in Redford, Colorado, Jonah investigates the gruesome act, knowing the strange event could escalate and destroy the tranquility of his small mountain town. With a rising drug threat and never-ending conflict with Tia Manning, a formidable childhood friend with whom he has more than a passing history, Jonah fights for answers—and his fragile sobriety.
But he can’t penetrate every wound or secret—especially one fueled by a love and guilt teetering on madness.
From best-selling author Kristen Heitzmann comes a spellbinding tale of severed connections and the consequences of life lived alone.
My take on this book:
"Indivisible" takes place in the tiny town of Redford Colorado. Police Chief Jonah Westfall has a dark mystery to unravel, someone is mutilating animals, it starts when a local resident finds a couple of dead raccoons surgically sewn together, and if that isn't enough there is also a suspected drug lab in the area. As things escalate can Jonah protect the town from the craziness that's going on?
While it took awhile for me to get into this story, it was well worth hanging on for. Once the story got going it became a fast paced thriller, that I really enjoyed. The characters seem very real, with realistic problems. Jonah was battling several demons from his past but was working hard to be free from his past. I think my favorite character in the story was Piper, who was so upbeat and positive. I also liked the christian message that was woven into this story, which wasn't overwhelming, but it was there. If your a fan of christian suspense don't let the first couple of chapters in this book stop you, once you get past it your going to find a great story full of suspense and characters that will pull you in.
