READING GUIDE: Indelible by Kristen Heitzmann


Rescuing a toddler from the jaws of a mountain lion, Trevor MacDaniel, a high-country outfi tter, sets in motion events he can’t foresee. His act of bravery entwines his life with gifted sculptor Natalie Reeve—and attracts a grim admirer.
Trevor’s need to guard and protect is born of tragedy, prompting his decision to become a search and rescue volunteer. Natalie’s gift of sculpting comes from an unusual disability that seeks release through her creative hands. In each other they see strength and courage as they face an incomprehensible foe.
When a troubled soul views Trevor as archangel and adversary, Redford’s peaceful mountain community is threatened. Together with Police Chief Jonah Westfall, Trevor presses his limits to combat the menace who targets the most helpless and innocent.

REVIEW #5: Indivisible by Kristen Heitzmann

“I liked this book. It is a bit more creepy than others of Kristen’s but it is also still very much a ‘normal’ book for her.  She is such a good author, one who is able to weave a very good story in with a mystery.” – Chris Jager, BBHFiction.Blogspot.com

Read chapters one and two.

REVIEW #4: Indivisible by Kristen Heitzmann

“Part mystery, part romance, and part psychological thriller, Indivisible is Kristen’s most challenging work to date. You can’t zip through this one. Her writing pours like rich syrup, forcing you to savor each paragraph. Yet the story pushes forward like a baby that must see the light of day, causing you to say ‘just one more chapter’ until you find you’ve finished the tale.” – DeenasBooks.Blogspot.com
