Indelible - 4.5 stars

Indelible by Kristen Heitzmann

If I had to choose a few adjectives to describe this book, they would be: creepy, intertwined, deep.

Kristen Heitzmann has woven an incredible novel.  My absolute favorite part about this book is the depth of the characters. Natalie Reeves is my favorite character, she has an incredible gift that makes her unique. Like any other gift, it also makes her a freak in the eyes of people who just don't understand.

Trevor MacDaniel is on the search and rescue team (it almost seems as if he IS the search and rescue team), he rushes into danger to save people. In the process, he not only dulls the pain from his past, but he attracts a very bizarre and sick victim.

Trevor starts receiving pictures that are incredibly disturbing. Children are in danger. And he has no way of saving them.

Natalie sees a side of Trevor that he doens't usually allow. He must face his past in order to let her in his heart. The part of their developing love story that stands out to me is Natalie's gift. I love how it adds a deeper dimension to their relationship.

I found this book deeply disturbing. The description of the delusional victim who stalks Trevor is well written - and quite believable. I found this book keeping me up at night, and not because I was reading it. Honestly, it creeped me out. For that reason, and that reason only, I give this book 4.5 stars instead of 5.

4.5 Stars.

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from Waterbrook Publishing Company in exchange for my honest review
