It was my pleasure to read Terri Blackstock’s newest novel Distortion, the second book in the Moonlights Series. I love to read mysteries and in the past I’ve read a number of Terri’s books and now I remember why I liked her writing so much.
Distortion is a fast-paced murder mystery. From the very beginning of the novel, I was drawn into the storyline and characters. This is the second novel in the series, but the reader is not at a disadvantage if you haven’t read the first book Truth Stained Lies. There is enough information peppered throughout the book that helps the reader know about the background of the characters. I do wish I had read the first book, but Distortion a good standalone book too.
Terri does a great job in developing the characters as the storyline unfolds. I find her characters very likable and appealing. Unlike other writers, Terri doesn’t have her characters making stupid blunders, just to put them in jeopardy.
As a Christian, I’m very appreciative of having Christian characters that wrestle with their faith in the middle of a crisis and see how they interact with family and friends, believers and unbelievers. I also appreciate a writer who doesn’t offend my moral standards by throwing in sin and immorality just to titillate the reader.
If you like mystery and suspense, I recommend that you give Terri Blackstock’s newest book Distortion a read. I do forewarn you that you may be staying up late a few nights because you won’t to put the book down.
I would like to thank people at BookLook for providing me with a free copy of Distortion to read in exchange for an honest review. I was under no obligation to provide a favorable review.
