Was Lisa Jackson’s disappearance related to politics, her husband’s affair, or her long-term infertility?

Ben Jackson is going head to head with Jonathan Cleary in Cape Refuge’s mayoral race—and he’s even expected to win—when his wife Lisa turns up missing the day before the major debate. Suddenly the town is in turmoil as proof of an alleged affair surfaces, indicating that Ben Jackson might have had motive to kill his wife.

Meanwhile, newspaper owner Blair Owens has other suspicions—and so does Police Chief Cade. Together they dig deeply into the mysterious disappearance that soon spirals into a web of confusion, dark secrets, and unsettling fraud.

Then the town’s psychic reveals the location of Lisa’s body—at the bottom of the river. Even though Blair doesn’t believe his paranormal gift is real, she can’t imagine how he knew where the body was.

The small-town scandal quickly turns into a national media event. Is the murderer one of the obvious suspects . . . or someone they have no reason to dou?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from River's Edge River's Edge by Terry Blackstock is a thrilling murder-mystery along side a love story and a story of love. You've got Blair Owens the local newspaper owner and main reporter falling in love with Police Chief Cade, who is busy investigating the murder of Lisa Jackson who is a Morgan Cleary's friend and both ladies are dealing with infertility issues and struggling to start their family, now Morgan also happens to be Blair's sister and Morgan's husband is Police Chief Cade's best friend...typical small town dynamics :) Now this book is #3 in the Cape Refuge series, so a lot of the character dynamics are already established, but it was still a compelling read and easy to put together and understand on it's own. I have read a few of Terri Blackstock's novels and have read them out of context, not in order or with the whole series and I really do enjoy her writing, The stories are always compelling and very interesting and very plausible, The one critique I would have is that the stories are broken up in many chapters. A total of 83 chapters in 360 pages. I found that it disrupted the flow of the story a bit, that I was constantly starting a new chapter when the next one could of easily flowed through with the previous chapter. Other than that, I really enjoyed this book and look forwards to reading the next one in this series as well as going back and reading the first two books ! I also would love to finish reading some of Blackstock's other series that I have started before, I would really recommend this book to other Christian readers that enjoy mysteries without all the extra language and graphics most mystery novels tend to have. It is a "clean" story, even though it is a murder story, you can feel God's word flowing through the pages and in the characters lives. I look forwards to reading more of Terri Blackstock's novels and stories.
