Book Review: "Indelible" by Kristen Heitzmann

I just finished reading Kristen Heitzmann’s newest novel, Indelible.  I enjoyed the reading adventure!
It is the mountain town tale of Trevor MacDaniel, an adventurer and rescuer.  Other main characters include a brilliant sculptor, Natalie; a blind painter, Fleur, and several family members.  Each is challenged to overcome a challenge, and must lean on others to regain strength.  The tales are woven together by a lost adversary who has the entire community on edge with his cruel ways.
I was captured by the weaving of Heitzmann’s stories.  I completely enjoyed the art and the adventure.  I was inspired by the way the characters sought to overcome tragedy by pursuing hope.  I was encouraged by the way friends joined together to support one another through hardships and trials.  I appreciated the way each of the main characters used his/her unique skills and talents to contribute to the community.  Readers are sure to identify with at least one of the characters, and receive a subtle invitation to change paradigms and actions based on the characters’ growth.
Heitzmann goes back on forth between the light and dark characters, choosing traditional narrative for the good guys and more of an archaic prose to represent the bad guy’s thoughts.
If you enjoy small town mysteries mixed with culture and romance (clean romance!), you will enjoy this book.  I’ll be watching for future books from Heitzmann.
Disclaimer:  I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.  I was not required to give a positive review; they just wanted me to share honest feedback.
