BLURB:

Journalist Madison Wade decides to move to Philadelphia when one of her articles on violence in the city hits too close to home. Madison and her fourteen-year-old adopted son, Ethan, take refuge in Buckeye, a small town in eastern Tennessee where her father had grown up. Despite the tranquility, Madison and Ethan feel like outsiders. But Gabe Wyatt, the local sheriff, is determined to welcome them to the town. He immediately falls for this beautiful journalist from the city. Madison resists Gabe’s advances, but he’s persistent and unlike anyone she’s ever met before. As a romance develops between them, Madison becomes comfortable in the rural setting, and when Ethan becomes friends with Jordan, a fellow outsider at school, Buckeye begins to feel like home. 

But a tragic death changes everything for them. When Jordan’s father is murdered during a weekend camping trip, Ethan becomes the prime suspect. Gabe’s investigation of the murder causes a rift in his relationship with Madison. As small town gossip builds a damaging case against Ethan, Madison races to discover the truth. Heartbroken and lost, she struggles to find anyone who will believe in her and Ethan, despite their past.

review

…REVIEW!

This story was well written although I ran out of patience and couldn’t wait to flip the last page of the book. This book did not keep me on the edge of my seat wondering who the killer was because I had figured who was behind the killing Ethan was accused of in the early chapters. I started speed reading thereafter.

Overall, the suspense build-up was good, but I wished I had gone straight to the last chapter when I found out who the murderer was early on. Characters so bland that all I can say is blah! I kept hoping for a twist, but it never came.

 :

Language evolves. The meaning of a word can shift over time as we use it differently — think of “cool,” “heavy,” or even “literally.” Today, give a word an evolutionary push: give a common word a new meaning, explain it to us, and use it in the title of your post.

Hmmm… I think I’ll go with ‘camouflage’

The term came from 1870’s France and it was a street-slang for pickpockets. It camouflaged its way to the US Military and hunting.

Proverbs 31.10

10 A wife of noble character who can find?
    She is worth far more than rubies.
11 Her husband has full confidence in her
    and lacks nothing of value.Proverbs 31b
12 She brings him good, not harm,
    all the days of her life.
13 She selects wool and flax
    and works with eager hands.
14 She is like the merchant ships,
    bringing her food from afar.
Proverbs 31.1515 She gets up while it is still night;
    she provides food for her family
    and portions for her female servants.
16 She considers a field and buys it;
    out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.
17 She sets about her work vigorously;
    her arms are strong for her tasks.Proverbs 3.17
18 She sees that her trading is profitable,
    and her lamp does not go out at night.
