Review of THE COST OF BETRAYAL by Dee Henderson, Dani Pettrey and Lynette Eason

This compilation of novellas by three masters of the craft of Christian fiction was a book that compels you to keep reading to the end.  Each novella has its own tale of betrayal, the theme of the book.  I enjoyed each of them and chose a favorite character in each.  I really liked Ann Falcon in Dee Henderson’s story of a woman imprisoned for decades for a crime that she did not commit.  Ann discovered the truth by accident and  was determined to do something about it.  This story is one that addresses the issue of justice and also forgiveness.  In Dani Petttrey’s “Deadly Isle”, I really enjoyed the setting of an island that is cut off from others because of a big storm and a killer that is on that island wreaking havoc.  The imagery in this novella was remarkable.  Finally, in Lynette Eason’s “Code of Ethics”, a family of police officers and their sister who is a surgeon have to try to keep a police officer safe who has discovered corruption in the department.  I really liked Ruthie, the doctor who was a force to be reckoned with.  All three novellas have strong female characters that draw the reader into the story and seem to end too quickly because you are enjoying the story so much.  Readers of romantic suspense will thoroughly enjoy this collection of novellas.
