Twisted Innocence by Terri Blackstock (Moonlighter Series, Book Three); Zondervan ISBN: 978-0-310-33236-7

Twisted Innocence, a novel by Terri Blackstock, opens with Holly not having a good day. She has recently become a single parent struggling to make ends meet which is why she drives a cab. Her latest fare is a couple who mugs and robs her. Next, she receives a visit from the police asking if she knows the whereabouts of her baby’s father, Creed Kershaw. He is a person of interest in a murder investigation. She is shocked the police know about him for a number of reasons. Holly had never told Creed she was pregnant nor had she ever revealed his name to anyone else. Holly doesn’t know where Creed is, but decides to find him in an attempt to keep him out of her life. Once she finds him things go from bad to worse rapidly. The interesting story moves very quickly. There is lots of action and suspense which keeps the reader engaged. As Holly and those close to her find themselves in danger, they cling to their faith and find strength in this.

I had not read the other books in the Moonlighter Series, but I found this book easy to read as a stand alone book because the author provides enough background information about the well developed characters.

The Year My Mother Came Back by Alice Eve Cohen; Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill ISBN 978-1-61620-319-1

Alice Eve Cohen’s memoir, The Year My Mother Came Back, is a beautiful book written with love, honesty, wit and candor. As she faces a most difficult time in her life, her mother, who died thirty years ago, reappears to her. Theirs had been a complicated relationship for reasons not understood for many years. Alice needs her now, just as Alice’s daughters need her. By conversing with her mother and examining her own childhood, she learns a great deal about what it means to be a daughter and a good mother.
Everything about this book is special and I loved reading it.

I received this book through LibraryThing for free and I give this review of my own free will.
