"Indivisible" by Kristen Heitzmann

Broken relationships, broken hearts, broken families--all abound in Kristen Heitzmann's "Indivisible". In a small town in the Colorado mountains, Police Chief Jonah Westfall must untangle the mystery of mutilated animal remains and seek out the perpetrator before the violence intensifies. He also struggles to untangle his own troubled past which includes alcoholism,family problems and complications in his relationship with childhood friend Tia Manning.

Having read most of Heitzmann's books, I was not surprised to find a tightly written, suspense-filled story. Definitely a page-turner, the story takes many twists and turns before finally reaching its end. For the most part, I enjoyed the story, but I did find the extremes in the characters' problems a bit of a stretch. In fact, it almost seemed like the author found as many psychological traumas as possible and then crammed them into the too-small space of five characters' lives. I did manage to suspend my disbelief most of the time and enjoyed the wild ride.

(Note:I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.)
