Life In Definace by Mary Demuth

From Good Reads: Set against the backdrop of Defiance, Texas, Life in Defiance, book three in the Defiance Texas Trilogy by Mary DeMuth, reflects a choice we all face: reveal our secrets or bury them forever … and live with the consequences.

My Take :  This is definately a book that needs to be read after you read the other books.  I didn't and was lost a bit in parts.  The author definately knows how to use descriptive passages, so much so that I found myself losing track of the story because of all the descriptions.  The mystery part of the story was interesting and kept  me guessing.  I didn't like that whole dynamic between the husband and wife and the church looking the other way.  I would give this book probably a 3 out 5.  It probably would have been a 4 if I had read the other books first.

I read this as part of a blog tour by The Blog Spot .  I Received a free copy for review purposes.
