Distortion by Terri Blackstock (Litfuse Blog Tour)

About the book: Juliet Cole's life has been dismantled by the murder of her husband. She doesn't know who---or what---to trust when everything she has believed to be true about her marriage has been a lie.

A husband's lies can have deadly consequences.
When Juliet Cole's husband of fifteen years is murdered before her eyes, she thinks it was a random shooting. Devastated and traumatized, she answers hours of questioning, then returns home to break the tragic news to her boys. But a threatening voicemail takes this from a random shooting to a planned, deliberate attack.
Juliet realizes that she and her children are in danger too, unless she meets the killers' demands. But as she and her sisters untangle the clues, her husband's dark secrets come to light. The more she learns, the more of her life is dismantled. Was her husband an innocent victim or a hardened criminal?

My thoughts:  I enjoyed reading this book and discovering the clues to the mystery along with Juliet and her sisters.  Even though it was the second book in the series I had no trouble following the story without having read the first book.
Juliet and her husband have just finished helping her sister move into a home of her own.  Holly  has moved a lot and Bob has gotten frustrated with how often they  have to help her, or so Juliet thinks, as they drive to return the U-Haul they rented for the move.  At the gas station a man drives by and stares at Bob and then, when they return the truck, he shoots Bob.  No money is stolen and Juliet thinks this was just a random crime.  But of course, things are not always what they seem!
What Juliet uncovers about her husband makes her question a lot of things about him and their life together.  Worried for the safety of her two children, she stays with her brother and allows he boss to help her investigate.  The three sisters and their private investigator boss  uncover a lot that Bob has kept from them all!  Some immoral and some illegal, it all paints a totally different picture of the man they thought they knew.
When the DEA takes the case away from the local police force things take a whole different turn.  Through it all Juliet keeps the big plan in view, keeping her children safe from harm and getting through all this so they can live their own lives again without fear.  Every one of them calls out to or prays for guidance and help, as they navigate tricky and dangerous situations.  The book kept you reading as the action reached its peak!   These four siblings, who were raised by a preacher father who ran off with another woman, have all had their struggles with believing in God and the church after what they experienced growing up.  Some of them have found their way back, but they are all struggling on the road to faith and fulfillment.
