A Romance with a Little Suspense and a lot of Drama

Indelible by Kristen Heitzmann is a  suspense book with a little romance in its. Set in the Rocky Mountains there is a sculptor whose name is Natalie Reeve. Natalie Reeve's special talent for her sculpting is that she has an eidetic  (photographic) memory, so when she is doing a sculpture of a person she can remember every detail of the person's face, and that when sculpts tat God would see she sculpts the person how God sees them. Trevor MacDaniel is a former Olympian skier owns an outfitter store. Trevor has a rough past, his younger brother died and his dad left when Trevor when he was little. To add to this there is a stalker, previous relationship issues and more. In this book there was a lot of drama and it made for a confusing read. If Kristen had focused on maybe  two of these points it would have been a better read. I do not recommend to read this book.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review

What Happened to Good-Bye

I read Sarah Dessen's new book What Happened to Good-Bye recently. The book was a great read! I loved the plot of the main character Mclean goes through identity changes because of her parents divorce and her dad's jobs move them from place to place and at each place she makes a new identity. Until this one place where she actually goes by her real name and she doesn't even mean to. She doesn't even know who Mclean is anymore. By the end of the book Mclean goes through so many changes but, is it for the better or for worse?  To find out you'll have to read What Happened to Good-Bye.
