Featured Review: "Salvation Station" by Kathryn Schleich
I really loved this book, I went into it not sure what to expect and I was not disappointed what so ever! This isn’t your typical fast paced thriller, its a slow build, but that only helps the story flow and lets the reader get fully invested.
Salvation Station takes place over several months very much like an actual investigation would proceed. When I wasn’t reading this book I was thinking about it. Susannah is definitely close to the top of my list of most hated antagonists for sure, I mean I really despise her! Kudos to you Ms. Schleich for creating such an abominable woman and letting your audience watch her deceit first hand.
Throughout the story we get perspectives from the police Captain investigating as well as several other characters. I always love when authors include different viewpoints it adds so much more depth to the story line. I was reminded of M.M. Chouinard and The Dancing Girls. Many times you aren’t aware who your killer is and you may get the prospective occasionally but not be privy to all the darkness they spread. When it comes to Ms. Baker we see her horribleness all the way through.
Overall this was a great read and I’m so thankful to Kelsey and the author Kathryn Schleich for gifting me my copy! Highly recommend!
“Despite her years of experience investigating homicides for the force, Captain Linda Turner is haunted by the murders of the Hansen family. The two small children, clothed in tattered Disney pajamas, were buried with their father, a pastor, in the flower garden behind a church parsonage in Lincoln, Nebraska. But Mrs. Hansen is nowhere to be found—and neither is the killer. In St. Louis, the televangelist Ray Williams is about to lose his show—until one of his regular attendees approaches him with an idea that will help him save it. Despite his initial misgivings, Ray agrees to give it a try. He can’t deny his attraction to this woman, and besides, she’d assured him the plan is just—God gave her the instructions in a dream. Multiple story lines entwine throughout this compelling mystery, delving into the topics of murder, religious faith, and the inherent dangers in blindly accepting faith as truth. While Reverend Williams is swept up in his newfound success and plans for his wedding, Captain Turner can only hope that she and her team will catch the Hansens’ cunning killer—before more bodies surface”.
Thank you to Amazon for that summary.
