Crown of Thorns by Sigmund Brouwer

After reading Out of the Shadows, Crown of Thorns was kind of a downer.
Upon his return to Charleston, Nick Barrett runs into a little trouble with a spunky teenage girl in a hospital, trying to get her baby sister some care for her fever. Something funny is going on around town. Something by the name of a cult that locks up their females when they disobey the males.

Of course, Nick Barrett, along with Elaine and Glennifer, jumps on the trail of suspicion.
The problem with the version of Nick Barrett in this book is he's perfect now. After all his struggles in the first book, he's achieved a hero personality that can solve any mystery.
The whole mystery is pretty easy to figure out, which means it's not up to Sigmund's usual par of confusing mysteries. His writing style is the same, but the originality was missing in action.
But since this is just one mistake, it can be overlooked.
2.5 stars
