Distortion (Moonlighters Series #2)

Title:  Distortion (Moonlighters Series #2)
Author:  Terri Blackstock
Pages:  338
Year:  2013
Publisher:  Zondervan
Juliet Cole has been a stay-at-home mom for several years now and has her routine and life down pat, so she thinks.  When the unthinkable happens and her husband is murdered right before her eyes, her whole life comes under scrutiny.  Was the last 15 years of her life, married to her husband, a lie?  What was she supposed to tell her children?  Who would want to kill her husband, a well-liked surgeon?  As Juliet is subjected to questioning by the police, her sisters and Michael Hogan, her boss, begin their own investigation into the murder.
Julie begins to learn more and more unbelievable stuff about the man she thought she knew and had shared a life with over the last 15 years.  She is sickened by what she discovers, but she is determined to discover who killed her husband as they now are threatening her two young sons.  She will do whatever she has to do in order to keep them safe.  She helps Michael investigate an old enemy who might be connected to whoever killed her husband.  Can she and her sisters and Michael figure out who is behind this crime ring?  Can they finally arrest and put out of commission Michael’s brother’s killer?
This is another thrilling, suspense-filled winner from Terri Blackstock!  I began this book today and finished today; it was that good.  The short chapters helped to keep the tension ratcheted up and kept the story moving at a quick pace.  There is an interesting plot with some unexpected twists.  Readers get to be reunited with characters from the first book in the series, Truth-Stained Lies.  There are definitely struggles with faith as various characters are faced with deception, kidnapping, murder and much more.  I can’t wait for the next book in the series.  I can easily recommend this great action book!
My rating is 5 stars.

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
