REVIEW BY LYNN
Cassondra Windwalker’s Preacher Sam is a psychological thriller that delves into the degradation of mankind when murder, lies, and secrets take over the small town of Broadripple, Indiana. The complex story sucks you in immediately as Amanda is arrested for murdering her best friend and business partner, Amy. Amanda shuts down and refuses to speak to anyone except Amy’s husband, Clay, and her former preacher, Sam Geisler. This only adds fuel to the speculation as to what happened to cause someone to murder sweet Amy and the reason behind it all is quite disturbing.
While a slow build to the surprising climax, the author takes the reader on a journey of reflection and growth with disgraced preacher Sam Geisler as he attempts to find redemption from his sins in the eyes of the church as well as his own. Having left the church after admitting to having a porn addiction, Sam is estranged from his wife and living in the spare room above his sister’s book café. The murder plot almost takes a back seat Sam’s personal trials.
Preacher Sam is the first book I have read by Cassondra Windwalker. I enjoy the depth and the rawness of her characters. She bares all their sins but doesn’t judge. The secondary character, Dani, Sam’s sister, is actually my favorite. She adds levity to the serious nature of the story. Dani is feisty and mouthy and I love it! I look forward to reading future books in this series.
