Book Review: Redemption by Samantha Charles

Lindy Carver Harrington loses her unborn child during a violent altercation with her husband. On the same day, her closest friend Sara careens off a mountainside to her death. Lindy is devastated. Imprisoned by grief, and paralyzed by fear, she is easy prey to her husband’s abuse. She is unable to summon the strength to fight back, until now…
A brutal confrontation forces Lindy to choose to either end her husband’s life, or save her own. Escaping, she returns home to Parson’s Gap to rebuild her shattered life.  Still haunted by the cryptic message Sara left moments before she died, Lindy becomes determined to answer the voice from the grave and unravel the mystery surrounding Sara’s death.
On a perilous journey into the final days of her friend’s life, Lindy’s quest for truth will expose shocking secrets that will shake a small southern town to its roots. Confronting the demons of her past, she strips away layers of lies buried beneath the magnificent mountains she calls home. When the past and present collide, the truth may set Lindy free, if she can only live long enough to take her last shot at redemption.

Redemption by Samantha Charles
Redemption is written with tremendous passion. The main character is struggling with escaping from some horrible events in her past. Samantha Charles not only writes an intriguing and captivating story, she makes the characters so believable that the reader feels the sadness, the pain, the terror, and the anger the characters feel. The mystery was written in such a way that nothing is given away. The reader is drawn into the goings-on.
I recommend Redemption as an excellent mystery and Samantha Charles as an author to watch. Keep an eye out for her sequel Salvation. It will be worth the read.
