Publisher Description

 "A mother knows. At least, that's what everyone told her. That she'd know when something was wrong. Feel it. Deep inside as if there was an invisible cord that had stayed behind the day she brought her son into this life.

Well, they were wrong. Dead wrong.  She didn't know her son at all. But then, he didn't know her either."

©Urcelia Teixeira - Excerpt from Jacob's Well

An engaging and page turning mystery

My heart is racing as I just completed this engaging and twisty murder mystery and eagerly await the next installment in this series - the story is definitely not over! The main theme that stands out to me is how easily a 17 year old with extremely good intentions can end up in a extremely bad situation involving drugs and criminals. The author has it down as she describes the various emotional permutations our young protagonist experiences - I felt as if I was right there with him, living his experience! Fortunately not all is lost, there is hope in the new sheriff in town who as a christian has a keen sense of right and wrong and who counter to the precious unethical town Sheriff takes his job of protecting his towns citizens to heart.

Great beginning to a new series!

Time to put your big boy pants on!

Jake, a teenager, finds himself in a quandary or at least he seems to think so. His younger brother, Teddy, was badly injured in an accident. Unfortunately this requires a great deal of the family’s income, putting Jake’s college hopes in jeopardy. When a ‘friend’ suggests he has just the fix for this financial pinch, Jake takes the offer. Only problem with his secret - he can’t hide it from God.

Sheriff Angus Reid is the new law in a town that was used to the law turning a blind eye to many questionable practices. Will they ever come to trust him and believe he has the town’s best interests at heart?

This first book in the Angus Reid series is not to be missed. I am certainly looking forward to more edge-of-your-seat action with this sheriff. Received through Purpose Bound Press with no expectation of a positive review, these are my impressions.
