Never Look Back Review:
Reading this series is my first glimpse at how Kathy Herman can write. I must say she is very good at writing suspense. Never Look Back picked up right where Ever Present Danger left off and it was a great story about learning to forget your past mistakes and remember that God has washed you whiter than snow.
It was not easy for Ivy to forget her horrible past. She was so high on drugs that she can not remember a lot of things that went on in her past. She has no idea who the father of her child is and she can not get past thinking that she can never truly be forgiven and loved by God.
She meets a man who has a past addiction also and every one tell her she should stay away from him, but to her he is really the only person who can understand what she is going through and not judge her past.
When a string of beatings happen and her new friend is suspected, Ivy sticks by him believing he has nothing to do with those horrible acts. Will they find out who is attacking the people of Phantom Hollow before someone dies?
Kathy Herman weaves a terrific story of love and redemption around suspense, romance and intrigue, I can not wait to read the conclusion to this great series.
