Indivisible by Kristen Heitzmann - REVIEW & GIVE AWAY!


ABOUT THE BOOK (from the publisher)
Battling his own personal demons, Police Chief Jonah Westfall knows the dark side of life and has committed himself to eradicating it. When a pair of raccoons are found mutilated in Redford, Colorado, Jonah investigates the gruesome act, knowing the strange event could escalate and destroy the tranquility of his small mountain town. With a rising drug threat and never-ending conflict with Tia Manning, a formidable childhood friend with whom he has more than a passing history, Jonah fights for answers—and his fragile sobriety. But he can’t penetrate every wound or secret—especially one fueled by a love and guilt teetering on madness.

Read the first two chapters of Indivisble now!


MY THOUGHTS:

"The person who tries to live alone will not succeed as a human being." (p. 28 quote from Pearl S. Buck)

Kristen Heitzmann knows how to weave secrets together like no other. Indivisible is a story that contains many stories of lives that have been wounded, damaged or broken. Yet no one is without hope. Each has been shown some measure of mercy and all possess strength that, individually, they do not recognize or know how to use. Heitzmann blends the lives of Jonah, Tia, Piper, Liz, Miles, Sarge, Sue and a host of other folks into a small town environment that draws you in and makes you feel a bit protective of each person's safety and well-being. Yet as the story develops, the most unlikely friendships begin to develop, secrets are revealed like so many layers of those pastries Piper keeps baking, each one more delicate and delectable than the last.

By the time you reach the final scenes in this book, the personalities, dreams, hopes and future plans for all of the characters converge in a very tense and deadly situation. For you see, all along there has been someone in their midst trying to mend what was broken...connecting what was never meant to be joined together...and the result was horror and immense pain. What each character in this story must learn is that there is something far greater binding our hearts together than mere human love and desire. Without that bond, destruction is inevitable.

This is an unusual, tense, and emotional read. The characters Heitzmann creates in this story have major obtacles to overcome. The "mystery" element is important, but the relational elements are stronger still. Unusual. The story draws you in and won't let you go....
