DistortionDistortion by Terri Blackstock

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Generally, I am not an incredible fan of contemporary novels, but with Terri Blackstock, I make a notable exception. I know from the moment I pick up one of her stories that I will read an intensely involving story with strong Christian themes. She is not afraid to talk about drugs, addiction, crime, and even faith doubting. I know I will always read a book that is appropriate (no profanity, bedroom scenes, or a celebration of evil), and I appreciate her take on realism. There are no guaranteed “happily ever afters,” and she will not beat you over the head with the salvation message. The message of redemption is woven into the framework of the story in a way that most novelists can only dream. This is one of those books you will not wish to desist in reading, and the ending will take you an emotional roller coaster. My simple review cannot do this book justice, and I believe that both Christians and non-Christians can enjoy this high impact, fast-moving story. Indeed, Terri Blackstock has shown us yet again that you can be a Christian and still write a book that has true validity in today’s over-sexed, immodest, anything-goes culture.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

Distortion cover{More about Distortion}

Juliet Cole’s life has been dismantled by the murder of her husband. She doesn’t know who—or what—to trust when everything she has believed to be true about her marriage has been a lie.

A husband’s lies can have deadly consequences.

When Juliet Cole’s husband of fifteen years is murdered before her eyes, she thinks it was a random shooting. Devastated and traumatized, she answers hours of questioning, then returns home to break the tragic news to her boys. But a threatening voicemail takes this from a random shooting to a planned, deliberate attack.

Juliet realizes that she and her children are in danger too, unless she meets the killers’ demands. But as she and her sisters untangle the clues, her husband’s dark secrets come to light. The more she learns, the more of her life is dismantled. Was her husband an innocent victim or a hardened criminal?

Pre-order a copy for just $4.99 on Kindle, Nook, iTunes, or the eBook version on CBD until March 10th.
