Indivisible, by Kristen Heitzmann (review and giveaway)

image
I have enjoyed other books by Kristen Heitzmann, so I was eager to read her newest book, Indivisible. Indivisible is the story of police chief, Jonah Westfall, and his neighbor, Tia Manning, who are each struggling to deal with their troubled pasts by isolating themselves from others.  When mutilated animals are  found and strange people start making appearances, the chief becomes alarmed that the peace of his small town will soon be greatly disturbed.
I thought this book had a bit of a slow start. So many characters were introduced in the early chapters that I found the story a bit difficult to follow at first.  Once I was several chapters into the book, however, the story and characters drew me in, and the book became hard to put down. Kristen Heitzmann  has woven an suspenseful story with twists and turns that will keep the reader turning pages to see what happens next.
I was also interested to read in Ms. Heitzmann’s biography that she wrote her first novel while homeschooling her four children!
To read the first chapter of this exciting book, go here. Listen to an interview with Kristen Heitzmann about Indivisible here.
