About the Book, Ties That Blind
Book title: Ties That Blind
Author: Chautona Havig
Release date: August 7, 2018
Genre: Christian Fiction / contemporary / suspense (light)
Summary from the author: He may not be the only person in the Rockland area to wake up without a memory, but he might be the only killer.
Simon Prescott, the latest victim of spontaneous amnesia in Rockland, is about to be arrested for murder. The evidence, though weak and circumstantial, points only to him. He’s confident he didn’t do it. He just can’t prove it. Grieving for a wife he doesn’t remember, Simon refuses to have anything to do with his family, keeps helping the police and ticking off his lawyer while he’s at it, and is heading straight for the pokey if he doesn’t figure out something and fast.
Enter Ella Weeks and Vikki Jeffries. The previous two victims are determined to help him, and with jail time looming, Simon capitulates. But what Vikki and Ella find as they work through Simon’s life reveals astounding and rather chilling evidence of a bigger scheme than any of them could have imagined.
They’re on the verge of total discovery, but the closer they get, the less confident they are that they want to know.
Ties That Blind is the third and final novel in the Sight Unseen Series.
The suspense began in the first book in this series, None So Blind (see my review here) and only intensified in the second book, Will Not See (and here’s that review). What in the world was causing these people to wake up with absolutely no memories at all??! When I read the first book, I didn’t realize this was meant to be a series so I was completely traumatized when the mystery didn’t resolve at all. Once I knew it was to be a trilogy, I was really able to enjoy the character growth of Dani/Ella from book 1, Tori/Vikki from book 2, and finally Simon in this one. I was so excited to get my hands on this one, knowing that it was meant to wrap up the series. It was very satisfying to have my questions answered, and even more so to have witnessed their growth and know they were not only going to be okay but better than they began the series.
I really enjoyed this whole series and highly recommend them if you enjoy mysteries, personal growth stories, and/or amnesia stories. Fans of Chautona Havig will also appreciate the roles played in this series by beloved characters from other series, including Joe from The Hartfield Mysteries and Chad from Past Forward.
I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of Mrs. Havig’s launch team. All opinions expressed in this review are my own.
