MY REVIEW:




Indivisible touches the many problems people have in their lives and the secrets they may be hiding.  We all have something we necessarily may not want to share with the world. Kristen Heitzmann writes about the  families in small town Redford. As in most small towns their is gossip and innuendo, stares and guilt.  Characters Tia and Jonah must deal with their past before they can ever have a future. Heitzmann touches on the many secrets families may have (abuse, addiction, affairs, betrayal).  It keeps you looking for more.

Indivisible began a little slow for my taste.  However, once I got into it I found it to be an intriguing story from a small town much like my own.  A little bit of a love story and a little bit of a mystery made for a very good read.  It definitely picks up the pace after the first chapter or so.

Piper the quirky young baker is  my favorite character.  She is young and naive and cares about her friends and those who are unique.  If you read the book you will see what I mean by unique.  It takes a special person to reach out to someone who is bullied and stands out as odd.  Piper is working to succeed at her own and overcome the many obstacles from her family , boss, and the Redford crazies along the way.
Jonah Westfall chief of police is investigating a string of unexplained animal cruelty.  The mystery behind this cruelty will lead him down an interesting road that is much unexpected and keep you looking for more clues to why someone would perform such hideous acts.    He is full of masculinity and a man of distinction.  No wonder so many women have their eye on him.  Makes for an entertaining journey as he tries to rekindle his lost romance with Tia. 

I would gladly recommend Invisible to anyone looking for an engaging entertaining mystery romance.
