The third Sullivan Crisp novel from Nancy Rue and Steve Arterburn provides more of the vivid characters, authentic emotion, and counseling wisdom that we’ve come to expect from this duo.
When news photographer Ryan Coe reaches her next assignment, the last thing she expects to see through the zoom lens is her own son being hauled off in handcuffs. She’s convinced he’s innocent, but he’s not talking. No surprise there; he hasn’t been talking to her since she divorced his dad.
That’s just one of Ryan’s problems—fortunately, she’s astute enough to know she needs professional help. Which, in this case, comes from celebrity counselor Sullivan Crisp. Sully is in town to shore up a struggling branch of his Healing Choice Clinics—and find the woman whose counseling sent his wife and daughter to their deaths.
While Sully’s Game Show Theology hasn’t changed, he’s grown on a personal level since we left him in Healing Waters. Now if he can just deal with his own issues while helping Ryan with hers . . .
Unlike earlier books in this series, the mystery aspect isn’t much of a mystery. The villains are obvious early on, but it’s well worth reading, for all that. Where else are you going to get this much anger management counseling in such an entertaining form?
I almost forgot–in the interest of full disclosure, I should mention that I got this book free through Thomas Nelson’s Blogger Book Review program. If you’d like to learn more about that (free books, what’s not to love?), here’s the link: http://brb.thomasnelson.com/
