ESCAPE TO BIG FORK LAKE by Mary L. Ball


Samantha (Sam) Blacker's life seems to be in a downward spiral. She lost her job, rent's due and she has to deal with her heavy drinking, very aggressive neighbor. On top of all that, her good friend Bo, didn't show up for their yearly meeting. Then an unexpected inheritance leads her from Atlanta to Big Fork Lake, Alabama. She doesn't think, as a city girl, she'll be happy in the country but also feels like she has no other choice. There she meets Noah Frye. A good man who was a good friend to Bo. The attraction is immediate but Noah keeps things pretty light as Sam does not share his faith. It's not long before trouble knocks on Sam's door. And why does that black truck always seem to be lurking in the shadows? When a murder victim is found and Sam is the only suspect, her world is turn upside down. Will Sam lose everything she holds dear or through all the trials, find something more precious than anything else?

Escape to Big Fork Lake was a very enjoyable romantic suspense. I liked getting to know the characters and the little town of Big Fork Lake. It was interesting learning a little about running an Inn. I wouldn't classify this as an edge-of-your-seat type story but it did have a few twists and turns along the way that were a bit of a surprise. That's always a plus when you can't figure it all out until the end. There was an underlying message about trusting God and keeping the faith no matter what, as well as a message about remaining morally pure before marriage, which I was delighted to see. It was a good reminder that whatever your failures might be, God meets you where you are. If you're looking for a little R & R with splash of suspense, you may want to take a trip to Big Fork Lake.

Looking forward to reading Mary's novel. Mary is a very talented and creative writer who uses intriguing twists, turns and excitement in her writing. Ah...nothing better than sitting in a cozy chair, sipping on a cup of coffee and a good read.. which this promises to be.
