Kirsten Heitzmann brings another great addition to her collection of novels with Indelible and certainly does not disappoint her long time fans or new readers. While listed on her website as a stand alone novel, it carries over the same small town of Redwood, Colorado and cast of characters as Indivisible which I reviewed a few months back.
Indelible brings a gifted sculptor, Natalie, to Redwood who can capture an a persons' flash of emotion in clay. We are also introduced to Trevor, a gold-medal skier turned wilderness outfitter who's past drives him to rescue and protect all those around him. Their paths cross when Trevor rescues Natalie's nephew from the jaws of a cougar on a trail outside of Redwood. As their paths intertwine, complicated relationships with family and friends brings additional stress to their forming relationship.
The plot is deepened even further as Heitzmann weaves the works of a disturbed individual who also feels the need to rescue and protect the weak and innocent, but his actions are less than noble and puts the innocent in even more danger than they may have been and he has his sights on the children, visually impaired and the weak of Redwood.
Two plots of light and darkness are interwoven into a wonderfully suspenseful page-turning read. Short of the "guy-gets-the-girl" ending, there is nothing predictable about this romantic mystery.
