Wendy VanHatten Reviews “Last Writes” by Sheila Lowe

 “Last Writes” by Sheila Lowe
Publisher: New American Library/ Obsidian Mysteries

The frantic search for a three-year-old, an estranged half-sister, a fanatical religious cult—Claudia's friend Kelly learns that she's an aunt when her estranged sister Erin shows up at her home in desperate need of help. Erin and her husband have been living quiet lives as members of The Temple of Brighter Light in an isolated compound. But now her husband and young child have disappeared, leaving behind a cryptic note with a terrifying message. Seizing an opportunity to use her special skills as a forensic handwriting expert, Claudia becomes one of the few outsiders ever to be invited inside the compound. She must uncover the truth about Kelly's missing niece before the prophecy of a secret ancient parchment can be fulfilled and a child's life is written off for good...

Book Review:
Sheila Lowe does it again. Just when you think you have things figured out in “Last Writes”…here comes another twist.
By now you know you should expect the unexpected, but Lowe grabs you and you’re off on a suspense filled tangent. You just know there’s trouble ahead. You’re afraid there’s trouble ahead. And then you wonder just how bad that trouble can possibly be…and will they come out unscathed.
With a good mix of suspense and wit, Lowe’s believable characters come to life in this fast paced novel. Try to keep up with her heroine as she moves in and out of trouble faster than you can turn the pages. And once again…the end will keep you guessing as you sit on the edge of your seat. Always a good thing for a suspense novel.
