Legacy of Faith by Teresa Slack
In a remote farmhouse, during the worst blizzard in Ohio history an old man falls down a flight of stairs to his death.
Melody Knauff cannot accept her strong, larger-than-life grandpa slipped and fell and died like a feeble old man. Not when everyone in the house had a reason to want to see him at the bottom of those stairs. But did they want it enough to commit murder?
The more Melody learns about her beloved grandpa’s past and the secrets he hid for sixty years, the more she wonders if she knew him at all. Who was Warner Beckwith? Was he a thief and a liar who was killed to preserve his secrets, or was he the strong man of faith Melody remembered? She won’t rest until she finds out what happened the morning the blizzard struck, even if it means becoming a target herself.
A year and a half after a robbery and assault in a motel room sent Melody’s friend and confidante Christy Blackwood home, she is ready to move on with her life. Christy hasn’t yet forgiven her mother for the sins that ripped their family apart, but holding them against her is getting harder and harder to do. When she runs into Jarrod Bruckner again, she realizes walking away from her life in Jenna's Creek won’t be as easy as planned.
