"distortion" by terri blackstock

About the book (from Litfuse): 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?

My take:
 From beginning to end, Distortion is a thrill ride. As the novel unfolds, more questions than answers seem to crop up, making for a confusing and enthralling reading experience.

While the novel is incredibly suspenseful, the aspect I enjoyed the most was the focus on family. Distortion is the second book in Blackstock's Moonlighters series about siblings Jay, Juliet, Cathy, and Holly. (You do not need to read the first novel to enjoy this one—I didn't!) These siblings have each others' backs no matter what, and their love for each other really comes through on the page.

I also enjoyed the way faith is portrayed in this novel. Blackstock does an excellent job of showing how doubt and anger can factor into a Christian's spiritual journey as Juliet's story unfolds.

Distortion is the first Terri Blackstock book I've read, and I don't know what took me so long! I'm excited to read more of this series!

My rating: 5 stars
