Laura Mabry's life didn't turn out the way she dreamed. She's now raising her son alone, after her husband’s death and running her little shop called Tapestries Needleworks. While out one evening running her dog on the Greenway Trail close to her house, her dog sniffs out a dead body. If that's not trauma enough, the policeman they send to the scene is none other than Jon Locklear; the only man Laura's ever loved and hated. Jon has spent a lot of years trying to purge Laura from his mind. Now he finds himself trying to protect her and her son. Truth and lies, murder and mayhem are all apart of Mimosa Grove, North Carolina. Can they unravel the truth and figure out whose behind the murders before Laura and her son become the next victims?
Vines of Entanglement is the perfect title for this story. You'll find within its pages, lies, deceit, anger, hatred and murder but you'll also find love, encouragement, hope, forgiveness and a God who is with you through everything. The characters were very complex and fully fleshed out. I did get a bit frustrated with Laura and Jon, but like us, they had to learn some hard lessons. The author did a good job keeping you guessing who was behind all the treachery, which I always enjoy. A quote about the book from the author’s website sums it up very well, “No matter how fast you run, the past has a way of catching up with you.” If you enjoy romantic suspense, loaded with twists and turns, I recommend Vines of Entanglement.
