Distortion by Terri Blackstock

About the book: Juliet Cole's life has been dismantled by the murder of her husband. She doesn't know who---or what---to trust when everything she has believed to be true about her marriage has been a lie.
A husband's lies can have deadly consequences.
When Juliet Cole's husband of fifteen years is murdered before her eyes, she thinks it was a random shooting. Devastated and traumatized, she answers hours of questioning, then returns home to break the tragic news to her boys. But a threatening voicemail takes this from a random shooting to a planned, deliberate attack.
Juliet realizes that she and her children are in danger too, unless she meets the killers' demands. But as she and her sisters untangle the clues, her husband's dark secrets come to light. The more she learns, the more of her life is dismantled. Was her husband an innocent victim or a hardened criminal?

My Review

Distortion, book two in the Moonlighter series, continues the family saga of suspense and danger begun in Truth Stained Lies.  Juliet and sisters Cathy and Holly who moonlight at private investigators with former police officer Michael Hogan find once again that their work will be personal.  They can't just wait while the local police and FBI drag their feet in solving the murder of Juliet's husband.  That Bob, a physician, was not the selfless, dedicated healer that everyone had believed him to be, makes the task all the more difficult for the sisters.  When it appears that the man who murdered Michael's brother (and Cathy's former fiance) is involved, everyone realizes that no one is safe, especially not Juliet and her sons.

I have never been disappointed in a Terri Blackstock book, and her craft just keeps improving.  Plan to read the book in one sitting (or as close to that as possible).  And make sure you have read Truth Stained Lies first.  You can understand book two without reading the first, but you'll get a better understanding of Juliet, Cathy, Holly, and Michael if you read the two together.

I received a prepublication copy from LitFuse for review purposes.  Opinions stated are mine.
