Run and don't look back.
I'll find you when it's safe.

Those were the last words Holly whispered to her six year old foster sister before the little girl fled into the trees and disappeared from existence.

Fifteen years later, Cassandra Ward is still missing.

Holly is haunted by the possibility that she sent her foster sister running from one monster and into the clutches of another. How else could a child vanish without a trace?

Determined to find her, Holly sifts through her own dark memories for clues, revisits her past, and chases a lead across the country with Jordan by her side. But the search for Cassie takes a dangerous turn when an altercation in the mountains leaves them stranded, cut off from the outside world, and running for their lives.

Lovers of books by Lynette Eason, Terri Blackstock, and Natalie Walters will enjoy this latest thrilling installment of The Holly Novels, and might even stay up all night reading.

About the Author

C.C. Warrens

Jesus and laughter have brought C.C. Warrens through some very difficult times in life, and she weaves both into every story she writes, creating a world of breath-stealing intensity, laugh-out-loud humor, and a sparkle of hope. Writing has been a slowly blossoming dream inside her for most of her life until one day it spilled out onto the pages that would become her first published book.

If she’s not writing, she’s attempting to bake something—however catastrophic that might be—or she’s enjoying the beauty of the outdoors with her husband. One of the many things she’s learned since she started this journey is that the best way to write a book is to go on a long stroll with her husband. That is when the characters—from their backgrounds to the moments that make them laugh or bubble over with anger—come to life.

My Thoughts

Crossroads is book 5 in the Holly series that is written by C.C. Warrens. I have not read the other books, and it did take me a few chapters to sort out Holly's past. I will warn you however, you will stay up late in the night reading - this book grabbed me from the first chapter and did not let go.

Holly wants to find her foster sister, Cassandra who ran away from the danger in their foster home. Holly has been through a lot in her life. Holly has wanted to find Cassandra for the past 15 years. They get a lead that she may have gone to Shepherd's Ridge, West Virginia. So Holly and Jordan venture off.

When they arrive they are immediately met with trouble and things are not what they seem to be. Holly wonders if it was all a false lead and that Cassandra may be lost forever.

This book had so many twists and turns. I stayed up into the night reading it. I will be going back and reading the series from the beginning so I can have an accurate view of Holly and her trauma.

Thank you to the author, publisher and JustRead Publicity Tours for allowing me to read a copy of this book - all thoughts are my own.
