One of the many things I love about Robin Patchen's books is running into characters from her previous books. This time it was Fitz McCaffrey, a police detective who had to resign under a cloud of suspicion and his former partner, Abe Bachelor. Fitz, now working as a private detective and sometimes nature photographer, has become his sister's guardian after the death of their parents. Now something has placed his sister in danger, and he may have no choice but to rely on the partner who had betrayed him.
Tabby Eaton, had lost the adventure from her life, and had tried to get just a little of it back by taking a two-week vacation to Belize. She could never have imagined the not-so-pleasant adventure that was to follow as a case of mistaken identity placed her squarely in the crosshairs of a drug-dealing mob boss.
Robin Patchen's books have the perfect mix of romance, suspense, and wisdom. In this book Patchen explores the depth of her characters' faith, and asks the question of just how far will they trust the goodness and sovereignty of God. A question all of us would benefit from pondering from time to time.
