From the Back Cover

Sequel to the #1 best-selling Cape Refuge

First a dead stranger. Now a missing Police Chief. Did Chief Cade run off to elope . . . or has he met with foul play?

The body in the morgue had no ID. No one knew who he was or where he came from when he walked out in front of Cade’s car. And when Cade learns he had a gunshot wound before he was struck, finding his identity becomes even more urgent.

Then Cade vanishes. Authorities discover the victim’s name, and the woman Cade was last seen with turns out to have been the dead man’s wife.

Speculation abounds about Cade’s relationship to the woman and his part in the victim’s death. His disappearance makes him look even more suspicious.

But Blair Owens doesn’t believe the rumors. Something has happened to Cade, and she’s determined to find him. Saving Cade’s life will take faith in a God whom Blair has always doubted—but he may be her only hope.

More About the Author

Terri Blackstock is a New York Times best-seller, with over six million copies sold worldwide. She has had over twenty-five years of success as a novelist. Terri spent the first twelve years of her life traveling in an Air Force family. She lived in nine states and attended the first four years of school in The Netherlands. Because she was a perpetual "new kid," her imagination became her closest friend. That, she believes, was the biggest factor in her becoming a novelist. She sold her first novel at the age of twenty-five, and has had a successful career ever since.

In 1994 Terri was writing for publishers such as HarperCollins, Harlequin, Dell and Silhouette, when a spiritual awakening drew her into the Christian market. As she was praying about her transition, she went on a cruise and noticed that almost everyone on the boat (including her) had a John Grisham novel. It occurred to her that some of Grisham's readers were Christians, and that if she wrote a fast-paced thriller with an added faith element, she might just find her niche. As God would have it, Christian publishers were showing interest in the suspense genre, so she quickly sold a four-book series to Zondervan. Since that time, she's written over thirty Christian titles, most of them suspense novels.

Besides entertaining her readers, Terri tackles issues that she hopes will change lives. Her recent book, Predator, was inspired by her experiences on Facebook and Twitter, and her concern that people posted too much personal information about themselves. The book deals with an online predator who uses social networks as his playground. She hopes the book will change readers' online habits. Her New York Times best-seller, Intervention, was inspired by her own personal struggles with a daughter on drugs. In the book, a mother hires an interventionist for her drug-addicted daughter. But on the way to treatment, the interventionist is murdered, and the daughter disappears. Barbara, the mother, sets out to search for her daughter. Terri modeled Barbara after herself, and poured many of her own emotions and experiences into that character. As a result, many families experiencing drug addiction have written to thank her for telling their story and giving them hope.

Other recent books include her stand-alone novel Shadow in Serenity, and Vicious Cycle (Book 2 in her Intervention Series). She's also known for popular series such as the Restoration Series, the Cape Refuge Series, the Newpointe 911 Series, and the SunCoast Chronicles series.

Terri has appeared on national television programs such as "The 700 Club" and "Home Life," and has been a guest on numerous radio programs across the country. The story of her personal journey appears in books such as Touched By the Savior by Mike Yorkey, True Stories of Answered Prayer by Mike Nappa, Faces of Faith by John Hanna, and I Saw Him In Your Eyes by Ace Collins.

SOUTHERN STORM is the second book of Terri Blackstock's "Cape Refuge" series. Blackstock is a renowned Christian writer who offers her books free to any readers not happy with her talent. During a storm on Cape Refuge, Cade, the police chief, runs over a strange man. The autopsy reveals that the man had been shot before he was run over. Within hours Cade disappears and Blair, good friend and town librarian, seems to be the only person in town worried. Blackstock entices readers with her action-packed plots, her warm natural characters and her realistic dialogue. As Blair uses her stubborn persistence to locate Cade, she is slowly drawn toward the God she wasn't always sure existed. Terri Blackstock is a gifted writer and SOUTHERN STORM is a sure best-seller.

Format: Paperback
I read this book and found myself having a hard time putting it down. Terri Blackstock clearly has a knack for the whodunit, but what separates her from others is that she so carefully weaves in the faith element. In Southern Storm, as in her other works, the transformation in the lives of Karen, Sadie, and Blair are as important if not greater than finding the murderer and rescuing Cade.
I strongly recommend her books because they satisfy the reader's urge for great literature and yet he leaves feeling spiritually refreshed--as if it is not just a wasted excercise. What also is refreshing and encouraging is the way Terri deals with grown-up issues and tough life situations with grace rather than judgmentalism. In Southern Storm, you get the idea that these are real people dealing with real issues and real fears. Even the strongest Christians battle doubt and discouragment and even question the will of God. The reader feels kinship with the heroes and heroines who identify with everyday life struggles.
If you're hooked on reading, but would rather part with trashy romance novels, look no further than Terri Blackstock. It will be an experience you'll not soon forget.

I am a huge fan of this writer as a rule but "Southern Storm" was not the usual gem of a read Terri Blackstock usually provides. I found it somewhat of a disappointment, I'm sorry to say. I would have given this book 3 1/2 Stars if that were an optiion. The storyline was dragging and lacked the usual snap Terri is so well-known for but I love the characters so even though the plot was at times boring the book is still worth the read. I'd check it out at the library however if they carry it.

I read this book in two nights. It would have been one but I had to go to work the next day. Terri did some real changes to her plot writing on this one, and added more twits then the windiest road. The second half was so intense your heart skips a beat and your palms get sweaty. I suggest wearing gloves on the second half. j/k.
I highly recommend this book! But only if you read Cape Refuge, you will be lost otherwise.
The worst part of this is that I have to wait a couple of months for the next in the series.

I love books in series. Whenever I finish a book that I have enjoyed, I want more. I like the way that Blackstock introduces a few more characters in each book and gives you a chance to get to know them before the next book. Her characters are believable and I admire their "humanness" (if that's a word). She does a very good job of working the scripture theme into the books without jamming it down your throat. Her books give me a reason to pause and reflect. Good job, Terri! Book 2 is a hit with me.

Cade hits a person with his vehicle and the man dies. Cade is now missing and Blair is really worried. He's last seen with a mysterious woman. Jonathan starts to become concerned.

Newborns are disappearing from hospitals and Karen from Hanover House is in the hospital after just delivering a boy.

Even though the believability aspect is questionable, there's something about this book that I like. It's got some excitement to it. Blair's got guts but what's up with the scar angle. She has scars. We get that. But why keep bringing it up? It's like every emotion Blair has, those facial scars flare up along with the emotion. Big whoop! She's the hothead in the group and won't take "NO" for an answer. If others aren't going to do anything, she will!

There's Sadie who the girls at school are talking behind her back about and what's up with the popular guy at school?

There's Morgan and Jonathan who are in the middle of it all. Morgan is Blair's sister and married to Jonathan. Jonathan and Cade are good friends. For Morgan to help Blair, she really can't tell Jonathan what she's up to. For Sadie to tell what she knows, she has to tell what she's been up to.

There's mystery here but only for a time for the reader. The mystery is for the characters in the book to piece together. There's plenty "Don't do it. I wouldn't do that if I were you" in here.

Format: Paperback
Unfortunately, I read this book before the first in the series, but still found it compelling and stayed up late a few nights, unable to put it down. Terry's characters are life-like in their struggles with faith and the difficulties that life throws at them. And like a dog thrown a bone that he can't get to, because a fence separates him from his desire, so Blair struggles between the facts and what she knows to be the truth about her friend, Cade, Police Chief of Cape Refuge, when he vanishes, leaving behind his vehicle.
He was last seen with the wife of a man that he had run over and that had a bullet wound, and then died of his injuries.
Cade's disappearance leaves the town confused and somewhat worried, until evidence points to him. Blair, one of the few who truly believes in his innocence, stubbornly pursues the truth about his disappearance, fearing for his life and struggles with doubts about the God, Cade believes in. Time is of the essence. But time is running out and she becomes desperate. Then his disappearance becomes even more complicated when he is accused of being involved in the disappearance of several babies. Can she trust God to deliver Cade? Will she listen to those who tell her to quit interfering and let the police do their work, even when she is in imminent danger?
You'll have to read the book to find out. This will have you on the edge of your seat and is compelling to the very end.
