I recently read The Widow Of Saunders Creek, a novel written by Tracey Bateman. Corrie Saunders became a widow when her military husband Jarrod was killed by a suicide bomber while on a mission in Iraq. Six months after Jarrod's death, Corrie decides to restore and live in her husband's family home in the Ozarks. Corrie starts getting to know her husband's relatives and Eli, Jarrod's cousin, begins helping Corrie work on the house. Over time he starts to have feelings for Corrie although she is still grieving for Jarrod and she becomes convinced that Jarrod's spirit is still around because of different things that occur in the house. Eli is a preacher and believes that what Corrie senses is not Jarrod but a spirit with dark intentions. Eli will need all of his faith and love for Corrie to change her beliefs, but will she?

My thoughts - I thought the book was okay; the pace was a little slow for me and I tend to like more fast-paced books. The book is written from both Eli and Corrie's viewpoints, so that was a little disjointed to me. Also it was never made clear what (or who) the spirit in the house was. I think this book would be enjoyable for anyone who wants to read about someone who is steadfast in their faith (Eli) and wouldn't mind the occult/demonic aspects.

Disclosure: I received this book from Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
