Face of Betrayal -a review

Face of Betrayal by Lis Wiehl and April Henry is a story about three girl friends who work together to try to solve the mystery of a 17 year old girl who has gone missing. While working together to solve the mystery, each woman has to deal with their own real-life problems, and keep it together long enough to find the missing girl.

Face of Betrayal was an intriguing mystery that was not steeped in a fantastical plot that was unrealistic to life. Instead, the story allowed the three main characters to develop with each passing chapter as their personal struggles clashed with their struggle to find the missing girl. It was refreshing to read a story where the main characters were not perfect heroes that never had to deal with regular short-comings and trials of the everyday woman.

Also refreshing was the fact that as a book with a main character who was a Christian, the message of the novel was not dramatically Christian. Once again, the struggles the main character who was a Christian faced were regular struggles of a Christian that made her character relatable.
