Deadly ties by Vicki Hinze

Multnomah Publishing Company sent me a another book to review, Deadly Ties by Vicki Hinze.  Deadly Ties is a contemporary fiction mystery, CSI type book.  I believe this is the fisrt book I have read by Vicki and I really enjoyed it, in fact I had a hard time putting it down! 
The book is about Lisa Harper.  She had an ideal childhood until she saw her father murdered when she was seven years old.  Her mother married an evil man named Dutch who had ties with some pretty bad people.  When Lisa was 16, her mother gave her to a friend who worked at the Crossroads Crisis Center.  There she learned how to defend herself and make a life for herself with the single goal of rescuing her mother from her stepfather.
Vicki does a great job of of illustrating how even when we think God is not blessing us, He is preparing us for things we are not aware of.  God is always in control and doesnot make any mistakes.  I would definitely recommend reading this book. Here is a link to the first chapter of the book:  http://authoriam.wordpress.com/2011/01/16/deadly-ties/

Deadly Ties is the second book int the "Crossroads Crisis Center" series.  The first one is Forget Me Not, which is now on my list of books to read.

I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did!
