About the Book:
Staying together had seemed impossible. Now it’s their only hope.
A dark shadow of fear has fallen over Newpointe, Louisiana. First one, then another of the town firemen’s wives has been murdered, and a third has barely escaped an attempt on her life. Incredible as it seems, a serial killer is stalking this sleepy little southern community. And Mark Branning’s wife may be next on the list.
Mark is determined to protect her. But keeping Allie alive won’t be easy—not with their marriage already dying a bitter death.
Unless they renew their commitment to each other and to God, someone else may settle their problems … permanently. And time to decide is running out.
“This tense and exciting thriller is more than a fabulous read; it has an underlying message about the place of religion within a marriage. Highly recommended.”—Library Journal

My Review:
I have read many books by Terri Blackstock and have become a big fan of hers over the years, when I turn to Christian Suspense books. When I came across the chance to review a book by her that I hadn’t read yet, I jumped on it. I am super happy that I did, too! WOW! She is most definitely a Queen of Christian Suspense! She is seasoned in every aspect of writing a novel, from the first page to the hook of the story to the very thrilling and riveting last page! TREMENDOUS! 

Private Justice is thrilling. It’s captivating. It’s full of faith-bound characters that are life like and intriguing. The rush of suspense, blended with the characters Mark and Allie and their wavering faith in times of crisis is phenomenal! I am trying to decide what I liked most about this novel…the wonderful message of fully relying on God and surrendering to His will, or the amazing, blood pumping thrill of the suspense. Both lend so much flavor to this book and make it appealing to the reader. You’re instantly thrown into the scenes of the book and feel every emotion of a rocky marriage that Mark and Allie are forced to deal with. You can feel their pain and heartache and you route for them to keep believing and have the faith that only God can provide. Love this feeling! 

I highly suggest, if you’ve never read a Blackstock novel before, grab a copy of this heart pounding 5 star read today! You’ll love it and you’ll rush right back out and look for book 2, Shadow of Doubt
