BEGUILED by Deeanne Gist and J. Mark Bertrand

Beguiled is a suspense/thriller that will keep you turning pages until you are finished. This book caught my attention from the very first page. This is a story about trust, believing, and the uncovering of Rylee's past. Rylee is a dog walker in a wealthy neighborhood in Charleston, South Carolina. She is struggling to take care of her grandmother in an upscale nursing home by her wages from dog walking, but its more than just dog walking, she loves those she is working for and adores the pets as well. There are a string of robberies in the township Rylee is working in, and in the midst of the night as she is walking a dog, she thinks she is being stalked, only to find out her so called stalker is a newspaper writer, Logan Woods,who is trying to find the story behind the break-ins. Those who Rylee has trusted are not who she thinks they are, and Logan befriends her, seeking the truth together.As the case grows there is one who is on the case that seems to think Rylee is guilty, Officer Nate Campbell thinks she is the Robin Hood thief. Rylee has left her faith, but through her arrest, through the trials she is facing, she finds Jesus again in a lonely jail cell. This thriller will take you on a ride, that shows us so much about our faith, and how in the midst of trials, we find Jesus and we find true friendships in places we never thought we would. Who is the Robin Hood thief? Who is at hand in Rylee's past? As you read these pages that go so smoothly, you will uncover the truth. I enjoyed this book, as it held me captivated from the first page. This book will be released Feb 2010. This book was given to me by Bethany House Publishers for its review of contents.
