Review of Indelible

Indelible is a suspenseful tale told in third person. Published by WaterBrook Press and written by Kristen Heitzmann, this novel contains definite spiritual (angels, demons) overtones. Though overall, the tone throughout the book is not a preachy one.

Natalie Reeve, the main character, is an artist with an unbelievable talent. When tragedy strikes her family, her life intersects with mountain climber, Trevor MacDaniel. As the story progresses, and the two become closer, Trevor begins receiving disturbing items in the mail. In the end, he must face various challenges to protect Natalie and to find and stop the person sending the mail.

The book contains enough romance to satisfy female readers but not so much that it would bore male readers. The characters were anything but stereotypical. The story was fairly fast-paced and well-written but did have quite a few subplots/POVs that some might view as distracting. For example, at first, I wasn’t sure where the author was going with one of the subplots/POV involving the antagonist, but in the end, it does become clearer. A reader’s guide is provided at the end of the book for further reflection and discussion. 

In the course of the story, Natalie stays at Trevor’s house for protection as he has better security and she’s recovering from an injury. Nothing inappropriate happens between the two of them during this time, but I mention this, because readers might be offended by this.
