Safety. Serenity. That's what Jack Matthews wants, and what he seeks in Lost Falls, Montana. A quiet retreat is just what Jack and his orphaned nephew, Max, need—especially with gentle, beautiful Erin Cole as their host. But when sirens in the night leave Max screaming, Jack's faced with the harsh truth. They're not safe—not him, not Max and especially not Erin. What is she hiding? What does the shadowy figure stalking her want? And how much will Jack have to risk to keep her safe?
An intriguing suspense, FINAL EXPOSURE shows two sincerely good people that feel far from God, the source of strength that has sustained them through the years. Traumatic events have made both question their faith. Now, Erin Cole and Jack Matthews are each facing overwhelming problems and fears.
Roxanne Rustand weaves a captivating tapestry of a tale—a story about life in the off-season tourist town of Lost Falls, Montana. With secondary characters like eighty-something Isabelle, simple-minded Ollie, mysterious Barry Hubble, and adorable Charlie along with greedy and murderous antagonists, to interact with; Erin, Jack, and little Max struggle to get their lives back on track.
A dark, ominous thread in the tapestry emerges from time to time and stretches from Lawrence, Texas to Lost Falls, blurring the strong, vibrant thread of Jack’s efforts to help Max back to normalcy and to clear his own name. Another black, frightening thread stretches from Denver, Colorado to Lost Falls and is never far from the bright and beautiful threads of Erin’s doings. This one creates some adrenaline-pumping moments for the reader.
FINAL EXPOSURE is an inspiring story of ordinary people doing extra-ordinary things to correct wrongs as their lives entwine and love, on many levels, works its magic. This one lifts the spirits, especially if a dark thread or two has wiggled into the tapestry of your own life.
