Breaker's Reef is book four in Terri Blackstock's exciting Cape Refuge series. I was excited to read the conclusion that wraps up this suspenseful series. I love this series and book four definitely didn't disappoint!
The book description reads:
"Murder and mystery continue in Book Four of the Cape Refuge series A famous mystery writer has just moved to Cape Refuge when a teenage girl is found murdered. Sheila Caruso–ex-con, mother to Sadie and Caleb, and resident of Hanover House–is working for the writer when she discovers that a scene in one of his novels matches the crime scene. When Police Chief Cade and Blair Owens discover a second dead teenager–mirroring a murder in another of the eccentric writer’s books–Cade is drawn into a web of trickery and deceit. Evidence turns up in Cade’s own truck, and suddenly he becomes the number-one suspect. Cade tries to clear his name, but when eighteen-year-old Sadie Caruso disappears, tensions mount to a fever pitch. Can Cade find the real killer before Sadie winds up dead? Is the novelist a demented killer, or a hapless victim? And what does Sadie’s own mother have to do with the crimes? Secrets are uncovered, while lessons are learned about the sins of the father being visited upon his children. Will the consequences of Sheila’s life be fatal, or is there redemption and mercy for her and her children? “Chief Matthew Cade rarely considered another line of work, but news of the dead teenage girl made him long for a job as an accountant or electrician—some benign vocation that didn’t require him to look into the eyes of grieving parents.”
I highly recommend reading books 1-3 before picking up this book. You will have much more enjoyment from the conclusion if you've read all the previous stories. Terri weaves the threads of each story together and brings everything to a very satisfying conclusion. This book is one of the best in the Cape Refuge series! It's packed with suspense, twists and turns, and action. But best of all, Terri brings in a big dose of redemption for her characters. I love that she makes redemption a major theme in all of her books. She has the unique ability to thread Christian themes throughout the story without seeming forced or awkward. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian suspense!
