Have you ever come across a book that stands out because it is just different than you expected? SHATTERED TRUST by J. Chris Richards is what I refer to as a "palate cleanser."
After a steady diet of romance with an emphasis on some fairly "hot" novels, I picked up a story about a police officer's fall from grace and subsequent recovery. It's a compelling story that completely sucked me in with plot twists and interesting characters.
Logan Taul is certainly not the poster boy for Cop of the Year. However, over the course of the story, he grows from someone who takes advantage of the law to someone worthy of respect.
There are enough Biblical references to qualify this as a Christian romance, but regardless of the category, it is inspirational in nature. There are ample examples of good vs. evil.
Not only did the book's depth surprise me, but the little inspirational lessons that cropped up along the way really stuck with me. There's a lot of focus on overcoming bad decisions.
