The author sent along the first chapter of her latest Christian romantic suspense novel for review.
a Miller's Creek Novel by Cathy Bryant
Letting go to build a bridge…
A frightened runaway wants her painful past to disappear. A plan to start afresh is derailed when she co-inherits her late grandfather’s farm with the man responsible for the scars on her heart. But he isn’t the only ghost from the past. Someone else is out to get her and will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Will Chance and Dakota lay aside their grudges to restore the old farmhouse and bridge, or will evil forces sabotage their attempt at forgiveness?
COVER: I have to admit I've never seen a bad cover on one of Cathy's books. They are all beautifully done. I love the nails sticking up along the edge of the bridge in this one. It's a great detail.
FIRST CHAPTER: Dakota has been living life on the run. She spies a dark figure coming toward her room and plans her escape. She knows it's time to leave and eventually decides to return to the one place she never thought she would go.
Chance is busy with working at the hospital and taking care of his sickly grandfather. When his grandfather asks him to check out the abandoned farmhouse, he goes begrudgingly. He certainly doesn't expect what he finds.
KEEP READING: Absolutely. Bryant draws the reader in from the first words and keeps the tension tight through this well-written and intriguing first chapter. Told from Dakota's and Chance's points of view, the reader meets each character in their own world: Dakota living alone in fear and Chance who lives in Miller's Creek. You get a sense for who each character is and what they are dealing with and the terrible past that tore them apart. Everything about this chapter begs the reader to continue and she is happy to oblige.
