Book Review: Indelible

Indelible: A NovelIndelible: A Novel by Kristen Heitzmann

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I enjoyed reading this book; it was suspenseful with some romance thrown in.  It follows Natalie as she moves to a new town to open an art gallery. She meets Trevor when he saves her nephew from a mountain lion attack, and the story follows their relationship as well as the suspense of someone snatching children from negligent parents and putting them in precarious and dangerous spots.  I thought the book was well-written and enjoyable and only had 2 negative issues with the book: First, Natalie seems almost too good to be true.  Her sister-in-law shuts her out of their life completely because she thinks the attack is natalie's fault since they were there to help her settle in and move. Natalie's response seems completely unrealistic: she understands, and agrees that her brother should go along with it because he's trying to save his family.... what???? First of all, I think anyone would have been angry and second of all, putting your family first does not mean letting your spouse trample all over your sister and make her feel like trash!  The sister-in-law drove me crazy, especially in her end response to the situation, and her brother should have stood up to his wife for her. The second negative point I felt was the strange relationship between Trevor, Sara and Whit.  It was never really explained fully, but from what I understand was just a weird triangle; It seemed unnecessary-if more drama was needed, Sara could have been overprotective as a friend without the strange dynamics and jealousy. But overall, a good read.

I recieved a copy of this book from the publisher for review.
