Review: Unveiling the Past by Kim Vogel Sawyer

Unveiling the PastI could hardly set this book down! The two investigations that Meghan and Sean were working on were fascinating to me, especially Meghan’s investigation. I guess I am a fan of cold case stories because I felt the same way about the first book in this series and loved watching as the detectives pieced together the clues. If you haven’t read the first book, Bringing Maggie Home, I believe you could still enjoy this story. However, you will appreciate the characters in this book more if you read Bringing Maggie Home first.

I loved the many different situations that were going on in this book in addition to the investigations. There were personal and important decisions for Meghan and Sean to make, as well as answers that Meghan and her mother wanted from the past. The author did a good job of creating characters who tried to live their faith, struggled sometimes, but ultimately tried to trust in God’s direction for their lives.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Unveiling the PastMysteries, family secrets, and learning to love and trust again rest at the heart of this contemporary novel from the best-selling author of Bringing Maggie Home .

Newlyweds and cold case detectives Sean and Meghan Eagle have been given the task of investigating the twenty-years-past disappearance of a husband and father, Anson Menke. A judge ruled that the missing man chose to leave the country and abandon his family, but his wife wouldn’t concede that he left his family nor declare him dead. Their mother now gone, his children want answers.

As Sean and Meghan follow the man’s last known steps, they also involve themselves in a more personal inquiry: locating Meghan’s biological father. But as Meghan struggles to balance her work and her new role as a wife, she becomes terrified of failure. She doesn’t want to hurt Sean or jeopardize the Menke investigation by falling short of his expectations.

When her mother, Diane DeFord, sees Meghan’s turmoil, she decides to take action, potentially reuniting father and daughter. As the two searches intertwine, Meghan must become vulnerable with Sean, letting him into her life and being a true partner, while letting her heart be tender to God, the One who truly knows the journey each disrupted life needed to take to Him.
