Last week, I had a lovely lunch with Sandra Robbins and Susan Page Davis. When I moved to Kentucky, I contacted Sandra because she lives in Martin, TN, which is about an hour from me. Then Susan moved to Kentucky. Susan and I first started lunch together, then we asked Sandra to join us. We reach each other's books, have lunch once a month, critique for each other, and have a great friendship. I am honored to have them as dear friends.
There is a story of how Sandra and I met. Sandi Rog and I were in the elevator with her at the American Christian Fiction Writer's Convention in 2009. It was in Denver. We went to the dining room, and I pulled out a Kleenex before I sat down at the table for breakfast. Sandra sat at the table behind us. We heard a thump and looked back to see Sandra on the floor. Someone asked for a tissue and I handed her mine. The high altitude and her meds had caused her to faint. She was fine, and we've laughed about the tissue ever since.
Sandra had given me her newest book by Love Inspired Suspense, Shattered Identity. Let me share with you the blurb.
Someone—with a very personal motive—has it out for Lisa Wade, Ocracoke Island's sheriff's dispatcher. She was viciously attacked, her home was ransacked and one very precious possession was stolen. Deputy Scott Michaels plans to stay close until the culprit is caught…but that means involving Lisa in the investigation. And her assistance may cause more trouble for Lisa when she finds clues in a journal to a deadly mystery. As Lisa and Scott cross dangerous territory, they inch closer to the truth—and to each other. But lurking in the shadows is a killer determined to keep some secrets buried forever.
I totally enjoyed every minute reading this book. I could not figure out who the villain was until the last few chapters. That's what I liked about this book. It kept me turning the pages. Another thing I liked about it is that it is set in Ocracoke Island. I love the island with all the history of pirates.This is not a pirate book, but a suspense.
I love Sandra's writing. You feel a part of the island with all the tourists. It's very spine tingling. Thanks Sandra for a wonderful read.
