MEREDITH NEEDS ANSWERS
It was another new start, only this time not in a city where anonymity was possible, but rather in a brand new town carved out of the wilderness of northern Minnesota where Meredith was to learn that people not only helped one another but cared about one another too.
And it was a good thing because ever since her father sent her off on her own to start a new job Meredith had been plagued with the feeling that she was being followed. When things are stolen from her apartment, her fears are realized. But going to the police is not an option, not when there is evidence that her father could be a murderer.
But who does she trust? The handsome, helpful Jack who always turns up wherever she is? The friendly Max who comes to her rescue time and again? The older neighbor lady who knows everyone’s business? Or Betsy, the one who keeps telling her that the Lord will help her?
Meredith’s quest for answers leads her to more than one new start in her life.
THIS CAN’T BE HAPPENING AGAIN!

Betsy is unexpectedly asked out by two men she just met at a wedding. Brody, in his cowboy boots and handmade mittens, was her kind of guy – fun loving and easy to talk to; whereas, Grant, in his suit, tie, and leather gloves, was more reserved and almost arrogant. Yet, both were interested in her, but not just her—her family. Why? Then one morning, Betsy wakes to find herself in a cabin surrounded by snow and trees, with no idea how she got there or who brought her there.
Betsy doesn’t know who to trust or what to believe about the new men in her life, but she turns to the Lord and His Word for guidance in making wise decisions. The trials she faces test that reliance, and through them she is able to share her hope in the Lord with the very people she suspects.
