Dark Water by Linda Hall

Elise St. Dennis is a jewelry designer who has recently moved to Fog Point, Maine is order to escape her newly-released criminal husband. She and her daughter, Rachel, are trying to start over in the small town of Fog Point. But something is not right. Her ex-husband has somehow traced her to the small town and she thinks he is following her around. So she hires private detectives Jake and May to help contact him and tell him to stay away.
But Jake and May aren't exactly model characters to follow. He's middle-aged man trying to forget about the family he left behind. She's an old woman who's known for solving a few cases in her day. As they work on their new case, they soon discover that there is more to the case than meets the eye.
Probably the best thing about Dark Water is the characters. Not only do they have clear personalities, but four of them are not who they say they are or who they appear to be at first. No one is perfect. They are all real people.
The end of the case is one of the most original I have ever read. It's definitely not what you expect. It does not sew everything up neatly like some people would want it to either.
The main thing keeping this book from being five stars is its silly dialogue end and the idea behind it.
Linda Hall has proved herself to be one of the best Christian mystery authors on the market.
4.5 stars
