The Saboteur


Title:  The Saboteur

Author:  Susan Page Davis

Pages:  248

Year:  2017

Publisher:  Tea Tin Press

My rating 5 out of 5 stars.

While looking for a couple of new books to read, I came across Susan’s newest novel.  After reading the synopsis, I bought it.  When I finished it, I was thirsting for more of her writing and thankfully another novel had recently been published and written with her son titled, The Seafaring Women of the Vera B.  Be looking for a review in the near future.

The story takes place in a small town where Debra Griffin is looking for a job after deciding that her current path of studies at college wasn’t looking favorable.  While stopping to get gas at a local station, which is owned by her best friend, a man comes running out and quickly drives off.  Debra runs in to find out a robbery occurred and then meets Detective Michael Van Sant when he comes to question her at the gas station.  In that moment, Debra’s life is about to change in many ways.  She has no idea what is coming around the corner.  When she lands a job, it is as a secretary to the detectives with Michael being her boss.  Soon it becomes apparent that there is something wrong in the department as various items come up missing or damaged, as well as other mysterious happenings.

I found the story heartwarming and interesting even though there really wasn’t lots of action, adventure or danger.  Really the action focuses on Debra and Michael leading to possible romance as well as a working relationship.  The faith theme is strongly woven throughout the novel and I liked how it was written in a way that reflects the realistic struggles and triumphs of life lived with faith.  I hope many take time to enjoy curling up with this novel as it was well written and tugs at the heart without a whole lot of unnecessary drama.  I loved the compassion and faith with which Michael sought to let Debra know how he felt.  This is a great novel for which I would love to see a sequel written!
