Escape to Big Fork Lake

Escape to Big Fork Lake by Mary L. Ball

Goodreads summary:
Will an inheritance bring new happiness or a trap for murder?

Bad luck seems to follow Sam Blacker. She loses her job and faces daily struggles keeping her drunken neighbor away from her.

When an unexpected inheritance gives her a chance for a new beginning, Sam, a city girl at heart, is hesitant. However, after a brutal attack she has no choice.

Making a decision that will forever change her life she flees to the small fishing town of Big
Fork Lake, Alabama and soon finds herself in the arms of Noah Frye. A tumultuous relationship with Noah sparks buried desires of the heart, even if he is a Christian, surely, she can get around that little problem.

As Sam and Noah’s passion grows trouble lurks in the shadows, waiting and watching. Inescapable, Sam’s bad luck returns when she stumbles upon a murder and becomes the only suspect. Will she have to run again, this time to stay out of prison? Worse, will she lose the best man she’s ever found? And what about the newfound hunger in heart to know God—can she truly trust in Him?

My review:
Despite this book being fairly predictable, I really enjoyed it. I really liked how intriguing the mystery was. The romance aspect was also great. It was very sweet. There was a great conflict when Noah could not trust Sam. They eventually overcame it though and ended up together.

Throughout the story, Sam tried to be nice to the people in the new town, but they resented her. During this, she ended up learning the hard way who her true friends are. That is a great but tough lesson and I enjoyed this book.

4 stars

I received this book for free from the author in return for an honest review.
