About this Book

When 30-something housewife, Alison Monaghan discovers proof of her husband’s infidelity in a photograph with a mysterious woman, she must decide how to confront Frank when he returns home from work. Despite the influence of her best friend Valerie, a strong Christian, Alison remains aloof from God and is determined to handle this crisis her own way. But Alison may not get that chance. Frank never makes it home. Soon his body is found on a lonely back-country road in antebellum Weathersby Historic Park where Frank served on the board of directors and where Alison, with a degree in landscape design, was a volunteer garden docent. Homicide detective Mike Barefoot, a Cherokee native from the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, immediately puts Alison at the top of his suspect list. He finds himself drawn to her–and not just because she had motive for the crime. As an army veteran, Mike usually keeps his emotional walls high. And as a detective, he knows not to get involved with murder suspects. So why he is so attracted to Alison? Can he fight his feelings for her–and the stirrings in his heart toward God?

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Who murdered Alison Monaghan’s husband? You will find the answer in Carolina Reckoning, but there are many twists and turns, mysteries and secrets come to light, and Alison finds out that her husband is not the man she thought he was. From the beginning of this book, I was hooked! I took very few breaks while reading this book because I wanted to find out who killed this mystery man. Lisa Carter created characters that are believable and true to life. I really liked Homicide detective Mike Barefoot, and the tension that he brought to this story.

This is a really good book, and if you enjoy a good ole murder mystery, then you will love this one. I received this book from the publisher Abingdon Press to read and review.  I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.
