Fatal Witness (Pearl River, #2) by Patricia Bradley

Fatal Witness (Pearl River, #2)

As a child, artist and potter Dani Bennett witnessed the brutal murder of her parents. With no memory of the incident or her true identity, she was forced to take on a new name and a new life, hidden away in Montana for the past 25 years.

Mae Richmond has spent the same stretch of time searching for her granddaughter, who went missing the night her daughter and son-in-law were murdered. Convinced the woman she saw in a pottery magazine feature is the woman she's been searching for, she enlists the help of K-9 officer Mark Lassiter of Pearl Springs, Tennessee, who tracks Dani down.

Skeptical but curious, Dani sets out on a journey to uncover the secrets of her past and reclaim her true identity. But someone close to her is determined to keep the truth of what happened all those years ago hidden.



"Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in you."

These words from Psalm 56:3 are often quoted in Fatal Witness and author Patricia Bradley couldn't have chosen a better verse for this riveting tale of murder, memory loss, and a killer's efforts to make sure that those lost memories are kept buried forever. There is heart-pounding danger and nail-biting suspense, along with fear and a need for trust! I was fully engaged from the very first pages of Fatal Witness!

While there are characters from the first book in the Pearl River series, the main focus of this story is Dani Bennett, her grandmother Mae, and K-9 officer Mark Lassiter. I adored the tender reunion between a granddaughter and grandmother who had been separated for twenty-five years, and I loved the special friendship that developed between Dani and her protector Mark. Bradley shares a poignant picture of their past hurts and insecurities while showcasing the strength that they find in their journeys to faith and trust. Mae Richmond's hope and determination are priceless---she has become one of my favorite book characters ever!

If you're looking for an intense thriller that you can't put down, grab a copy of Final Witness. I couldn't wait to learn the truth, but I didn't want it to end! Very deserving of being more than a 5-star read!!

I received a copy from the author and publisher. There was no obligation for a positive review.
