Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

This well-crafted suspense novel picks up immediately following the second installment in the Cape Refuge series: Blair has just become a Christian and a newspaper owner; Morgan struggles with infertility; and Jonathan faces two opponents in his quest to become the mayor of Cape Refuge, their small Georgia island town. When the wife of one of Jonathan's opponents goes missing, among those the chief of police suspects are the third mayoral candidate (who is, unsurprisingly, an atheist), a prosperous fertility doctor and a local psychic who appears to have uncanny knowledge about the case. Despite some didactic moments (a biblical exposition of the dangers of divination, for example), the novel manages to be more plot-driven than message-driven, a step forward for evangelical Christian suspense. Numerous red herrings in the meticulously plotted story will keep readers guessing, and they will be delighted by the skillful surprise ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of plot twists Nov. 18 2004
By Sarah N. Horton - Published on Amazon.com
I say Terri Blackstock has done it again. I just love how she can create a suspensful, exciting novel that incorporates characters that are full of faith, but also human. This latest book, River's Edge, is right on par with her previous work. The book has more plot twists than I expected leaving an exciting ending. The characters are well developed, and while many of them have Christian faiths, they are all still human and real. I especially loved Terri's inclusion of the topic of infertility. This topic is rarely discussed in the fiction world, and speaking from personal experience, I was delighted with her coverage. The women's struggles in this book were very realistic. I say it is a great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great work by Terri Blackstock March 5 2005
By Toby Martin II (aka R. Howe) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
"River's Edge," the third entry in the four-volume "Cape Refuge" series by Terri Blackstock, is yet another example that this unique author somehow continues to improve with each book. This is especially impressive considering that all of Ms. Blackstock's novels are outstanding. Her superb writing style; her creative plots of mystery, and compelling insight into human relations; her ability to integrate, so skillfully, her strong convictions in the Christian faith... all of these attributes, and more, make her works special. Very special. --RON HOWE (a.k.a. Toby Martin II)

I read these back to back and they were all so hard to put down. You never know who the killer is until the very end, and when you find out you are totally suprised.

3.0 out of 5 stars A truly good plot twist elevates this book April 12 2009
By Barbara L. Lemaster - Published on Amazon.com
This is the third in Blackstock's Cape Refuge series. She writes a decent mystery and the ending is brilliant, but her characterizations occasionally fall flat. Morgan really annoyed me in this book, because she behaves as a super-Christian with no faults at all. She's totally emotion-driven and apparently doesn't understand the basics of logic or reasoning. Not all Christians are like that. Meanwhile, her sister Blair (a better overall character) has taken over the newspaper and is writing about the murder of a prominent local politician's wife, but this causes her to clash occasionally with Matthew Cade, the police chief and the man she's deeply in love with.

There's an interesting subplot about IVF and infertility, which bored me since I had two kids the good old-fashioned way and I have married friends who are childfree. I have never understood women and men who put having a baby as the be-all, end-all of their lives. I certainly don't know any Christians who think that way. Some Christians deliberately decide to forsake having children in order to share in missionary work, but Morgan's job on this earth is, apparently, to be a mother. At several points in the book, I wanted to reach into the pages and slap her.

Sheila Caruso is another fairly well developed character. She's a reformed (?) drug addict who's released from prison early and is attempting to start a new life at Hanover House with her children, Sadie and Caleb. She behaves in a fairly predictable manner, but she's at least realistic.

The book is far more plot-driven than message-driven, but there is good counsel on why Christians avoid psychics and mediums and what it means to engage in spiritual warfare with the weaponry Paul described in Ephesians. All in all, a satisfying read.

5.0 out of 5 stars the river's edge Nov. 1 2007
By Linda Ruth - Published on Amazon.com
Terri Blackstock knows her craft and I love reading her books. She sticks with the story line and the Christian examples come forth out of that, as in life, Christian's aren't perfect! The River's Edge grabs you right away and you become one of the townsfolk in the whirl of excitement over a dramatic mayoral race, the ongoing saga of Hanover House residents Blair running the town paper with her own "flair" and of course there has to be a DB! (dead body) Cade becomes ever more endearing to us as do the other characters we loved in the last two books... I especially find the plight of Morgan very poignant since I had the same infertility battle... a crises you can't imagine if you haven't experienced it. Well done!
