But her dad's MIA, her mom is always at work, and her older sister Rose is too self-centered to give her any help.

In their childish hearts they vowed to be best friends forever and ever.

I have read a number of books by this author and this is the best so far. She really deals with some heavy emotional issues as well has racial extremism. I have been aware of the "white supremacy" issues but this delved in it a lot. It dealt with times from the 1960's until the 1990's from the view point of the south and the northwest. It also dealt with the big cities verses the small towns.

Grief plays a large part of the emotional package of this book. Dealing with the death of a child from Leukemia, the husband from a plane crash and a "blood sister" who took her own life or so it seemed. As an investigation continues, Judith gets more involved then she would think possible.

There is a depth to this book that most do not reach, especially Christian based books. With that depth you can be assured that it is still "clean" in language and it thoughts. A very well thought out and interesting book. I really enjoyed reading it.

Judith Blackwell had lost touch with her best friend, Jasmine Morrison, over the years, but she remembered. They'd been best friends in school and even blood sisters. Judith was at the lowest point in her life when the newspaper clipping of Jasmine's obituary came in the mail. Judith's son had died several years ago, and her husband had been killed in a plane accident more recently. In fact, she had been considering suicide, until she read that Jasmine had taken her own life. She immediately decided to go back to her hometown of Cedar Crest to find out what had happened. She felt she owed Jasmine that much. What she uncovers, along with handsome law enforcement agent Adam Ford, is a can of vipers.

In some ways, this is disturbing novel with racism, white supremacy groups, kidnapping, blackmail, and murder. Regrettably, these things do still exist. Jasmine's story is a sad one, and I wish Judith's romance had been more solved by the end to offset the tragedy. Still, I certainly think the book was worth reading. I found the pacing a little too slow in some places, especially around the middle of the novel, but it got better at times, too. I appreciated that it had no profanity or sex scenes. I found a few mistakes, but some of them could be scanning problems. "Tthis" was used for "this." "hack" for "back," "harry" for the name "Harry," and "plum" for "plumb." "Set their sites" should have been "sights" and " "cause was used for " 'cause" a number of times. In addition there were a couple of missing quotation marks in the sets and breaks in the middle of paragraphs. These weren't so bad as to detract from the story, however.

Really enjoy this authors little Christmas novels. She is out of her element with this book. The story feels contrived, the characters are weakly developed and the situations while intended to be real are unrealistic... Even the faith based elements introduced via her characters in this book are shallow and without merit... feel like they were just tossed in for effect. Very disappointed....

This was different from the books I've read before ,by this author . It was hard to read in part, because of the sad truth that people like this exist ,still today. Prejudice is an evil straight out of hell, created by Satan himself. This was a great story with a lot of sad happenings , but that's what happens when hate lives in people's hearts. One reviewer said it was unrealistic and contrived , what world is this person living in !! Things described in the story are happening in cities as I speak!!! It is easier to stick our head in the sand. Thank you Mrs Carlson for writing this book.

This was a fairly well written book even with all the typographical errors. The storyline is very serious and unfortunately timely considering the day and age we live in. You have what can only be referred to as White Supremacists basically ruling a town in which many people are secretly appalled by their way of life. Enter a liberal woman who has experienced major tragedies in her life who returns to her home town to try to understand what caused her best friend from childhood to commit suicide, if that is indeed what happened. The storyline is rather riveting and a fast read but quite upsetting. I definitely could have done with a lot less prayer tho because it's just too preachy for my tastes. Unfortunately those who really should read this book probably won't but if you consider yourself a person of principle, I think you will find it a good read. Just be prepared to get angry.

This is a story that takes the main character from death to life as she tries to find out what happened to her best friend from childhood. She has no idea where going back home will take her, and it isn't really to back home. She returns to the place she grew up and finds that things have changed drastically. No one will answer her questions about her friend, and many people are afraid of somebody. Her curiosity can't allow her to let go and return to Portland. She has no idea where the trouble will lead her.

Issues like grief and racism (both the blatant and the subtle) aren't the easiest topics to discuss, but I thought Carlson did a good job of weaving them into a (somewhat) believable story. I appreciated how the main character came out of her self-focused grief into fighting for something bigger than herself. There was some romance which thankfully wasn't a major factor...the book followed the "issues" as opposed to focusing on a romance building within some random context.

Beautiful ending capped off a good story, but I would have liked to get some more details here. (Sorry, don't want to give anything away.)

One additional thing. The formatting on the kindle was bad. At least 30 sentences were cut in half with the 2nd half looking like it was a new paragraph. Every time I hit one of these, it pulled me out of the story and I got distracted. It would be great to have an update fix this.
