Deadly Devotion - Revell Blog Tour

In accordance with FTC requirements, I must disclose that this post contains advertisement for purchase of the following book, and that I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for reviewing it. But am only asked to give my honest opinion.

Kate knows the truth is out there-but if she's right, that means a killer is out there too.
Research scientists Kate Adams and Daisy Leacock were on the brink of a breakthrough for treating depression with herbal medicine when Daisy was suddenly found dead. Kate knows that her mentor's death wasn't suicide or a careless accident-and she's determined to do whatever it takes to unearth the truth about what happened to the woman who changed her life.

Former FBI agent Tom Parker is finding it hard to adjust to life back in his hometown of Port Aster. Though an old buddy gave him a job as a detective on the local police force, not everyone approves. Tom's just trying to keep a low profile, so when Kate Adams demands he reopen the investigation into her friend's death, he knows his job is at stake. But despite his attraction to her, Tom thinks Kate may have something to hide.

As evidence mounts, a web of intrigue is woven around the sleepy town of Port Aster. Can Kate uncover the truth? Or will Tom stand in her way?

My Thoughts:
I really enjoy getting to read new authors, and Sandra is a new author for me. This book's plot was full of mystery and suspense from page one! Boy, it's tough to get your housework done when you are reading a book you simply cannot put down! Halfway through the book, the author still had me guessing as to who the guilty party was. Now, that's what I call intense! Most of the time, you can usually tell a little way in, which character the author is leaning towards, but not in this one! Kate seems to always be on the edge of danger. Tom, is always playing the hero, risking his own job, to help Kate out. There are plenty of suspects with shady pasts. And last but not least a blossoming romance. Sandra also does a great job of incorporating just the right amount of God and faith into the story. I guess that is one of my expectations as a reader of Christian fiction. I am glad this is book one in the series, because I can't wait til book two! This one gets five stars from me!
