Cold Betrayal: An Ali Reynolds Novel by J.A. Jance

She's pregnant and has been hit by a car.  Sister Anselm is an advocate for the ill and she takes this young woman under her wing.  When she learns she's running from polygamous marriage, she remembers another young girl that fled and then disappeared.  She's ready to defend her.

Touchstone and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published March 10th, so watch for it then.

Ali is enjoying married life and would like to have more time with her husband.  The problem is that she's a cop and she's often gone.  His job takes him all over, too.  Right now, she has this young pregnant woman to help (Sister A makes sure of that) and her new daughter-in-law is asking for help for her grandmother.  Someone is trying to make Betsy look unstable so she can put in a nursing home.

The past and present merge together through this story and it's pretty brutal.  The head of the farm of the polygamous family rules like a god, and he's greedy and insane.  When you find out how he's made all his money and what his plans are for the future, it will make your blood run cold.

I think adding the nun and Ali's husband makes for a very touch.  She's able to do more with her husband's aid and that's a good thing.

If you're not familiar with J A Jance, she writes good books.  This is one of her newer characters.  Find some of her old books and try them while you're waiting for this one to be published.  I don't think you'll be disappointed you did.
