A Christian Mystery Romance

This new book, SHADOWS ON THE SAND, by Gail Roper combines mystery and romance to make a story that keeps the reader flipping the pages, or in my case, moving my finger on the Kindle page.

Carrie and her sister Lindsay went to the town of Seaside, New Jersey, after growing up in an disfunctional family. Carrie is hopelessly in love with Greg, a man who frequents the cafe, and who used to be a cop. They are on their way to happiness when a young man who works for them is murdered.

Many characters are introduced, among them the leaders of a religious cult that Andi, the waitress, used to belong to, along with her family. There is a lot of disfunction in the lives of many of the characters, not the least of whom are the cult leaders.
The author switches between characters many times as she begins new chapters. The reader is kept on her toes to keep up. But by the time the book is wrapping up, the excitement is high. It is hard to determine who the killer is. The author writes well and brings everything together in a satisfactory, but very exciting, manner.
