"Her plot is solid, and is very movie or television friendly . . . lots of action; pathos; conflict; glamour; etc. It's all there, and Heckenkamp is a confident and sure writer. She has no trouble keeping all of her balls in the air and resolving them at the end of this page-turner with a flair." - The Midwest Book Review
"Past Suspicion is a page-turner, and Heckenkamp is an author to be reckoned with."
- Nancy Mehl, bestselling Christian author
"I highly recommend this novel to anyone looking for an interesting, engaging read with a cast of well-defined characters."
- Ellen Gable, bestselling Christian author of Stealing Jenny, In Name Only, and A Subtle Grace.
"Past Suspicion is billed as a suspense for young adult readers, yet . . . would be welcome by older fans of thrillers as well . . . a remarkable debut."- Kathryn Lively,
Christian author of Little Flowers
and Saints Preserve Us: A Ronnie Lord Mystery
"Past Suspicion is a riveting mystery that will keep readers turning pages."- Regina Doman,
author of The Shadow of the Bear
and other Catholic Fairy Tale Novels for teens and young adults.
"Past Suspicion" is suitable for readers 12 and up and can hold the attention of readers through age 100. I found this novel refreshing and commend Ms. Heckenkamp for not sullying the story with profanity."
- E. Dian Moore, Christian freelance writer and editor.
