From Publishers Weekly
This stand-alone from veteran thriller author Lyons (who's co-written two books with activist Erin Brockovich) shows its hand too early for its own good, presenting a major reveal that would have had more of an impact later on. New York State schoolteacher Sarah Durandt has lost her husband, Sam, and son, Josh, to serial killer Damian Wright, but witnessing his execution in 2007 brings her little consolation as the murderer goes to his death without disclosing where the bodies are buried. Two weeks after the execution. FBI Supervisory Special Agent Caitlyn Tierney learns of an anomaly; despite Wright's confession, a forensic analyst has doubts about his guilt in the Durandt case after finding the DNA evidence did not place him at the crime scene. Tierney, combatting chronic headaches suffered as the result of a line-of-duty head injury, reopens the matter, even as Durandt tries to put the past behind her by searching for her family's remains. The emotional responses of the characters to plot developments often seem unnatural, an impediment to suspension of disbelief. --This text refers to the Kindle Edition edition.
Blind Faith by CJ Lyons had five stars written all over it from the moment I started reading. This is a great novel, and I would definitely recommend CJ Lyons and her thrillers to readers. --chicklitplus.com/blind-faith-cj-lyons/
TOP PICK! "This story is so fast paced with so many mesmerizing characters, "fantastic" is not high enough praise. Lyons proves once again that she is a master of suspense and nontraditional romance." ~RT Book Reviews

Sarah, the protagonist of this story lost her husband and son two years ago. The serial killer who was killing people at the time when Sarah's loved ones went missing, is executed without giving Sarah closure by telling her where her husband and son were buried although he did give this information to other families. At the execution, he dies looking straight at Sarah.
This is enough to grab the reader's attention, but the plot and characters keep the reader turning pages. Who can Sarah really trust and what is the truth about her husband and young son? I am not going to give anything else away. You will have to read this story to the very end to find out the truth. And you will not be disappointed with this "thriller with a heart."
1. A fast paced, unbelievable plot
2. Two very very strong, attractive and capable women
3. Men who are either flawed, evil or weak?
Then you will love this book. I think the author has thought through quite a complex story line and has presented it reasonably well. However, her style, at least for me as a male reader, has an off putting aspect in that virtually every scene is riddled with almost unbearable angst. I have never read a book with so many pierced hearts, unendurable physical pains, agonising tasks and gut wrenching tears. Additionally, some of her sentences are quite long, certainly not the short punchy style of a classic writer such as Hemingway.
So although I did pursue the book to the conclusion with some interest, I was never in any doubt that these two super women would overcome falls down cliffs, make underwater escapes, foil attempted bombings and win gun fights, all in the midst of incredible emotional agony and physical pain in order to find true happiness. The chick-Lit Ken Follet? Well, no. A mildly entertaining summer vacation read? Well, yes.
