Blog Tour: The Baker's Wife (Review)

Their ministry has ended. Life has changed dramatically for the Bofinger family.

Then an unexpected accident - and a lot of twists and turns - cause their life to change once again.

In The Baker's Wife, Erin Healy has taken her skill as a suspense writer, and crafted a novel that delves into the darker side of humanity.

Healy explores what happens when someone makes an allegation against a ministry official - and how that can change a life.

The twist in her story is that the person who made the allegation continues to go after the ministry family, because honestly, he sees them as the "problem" in his life.

This book is a bit gritty. But it's good. You can definitely see the influence of Ted Dekker (a past co-author) in her writing style.

The Baker's Wife will make you think, probably make you cringe a bit at the actions of different characters and well, provide you with a great read.

On the scale of one to five, with five being the highest, this is a good, solid three. If you are into Christian suspense, then Healy has provided you with something deserving to check out.

More About The Book
From The Publisher
To save her husband and son, Audrey Bofinger must rescue her enemy.

The Bofinger family has lost their church ministry in a scandal exposed by Officer Jack Mansfield. Hoping to heal and to restore their reputation, Audrey, Geoff, and their son Ed take over a failing bakery in the small community.

Driving to the bakery one morning, blinded by fog, Audrey hits a motor scooter owned by Jack’s wife, Julie. The mangled scooter is crushed and bloody. But Julie is nowhere to be found. Her disappearance coincides with a sudden illness that nearly cripples Audrey.

Jack believes the Bofingers have hurt Julie to take revenge on him, but the evidence dries up and her trail goes cold. At a breaking point, Jack takes the tiny bakery and its patrons hostage, issuing only one demand: Audrey has six hours to return Julie to him, or lose Geoff and Ed forever.

With only an excruciating and intuitive gift, an ex-con, and Julie’s estranged daughter to help search for clues, Audrey starts the search of her life for a woman who has vanished like the fog.
