An insatiable force.
Battling his own personal demons, Police Chief Jonah Westfall knows the dark side of life and has committed himself to eradicating it. When a pair of raccoons are found mutilated in Redford, Colorado, Jonah investigates the gruesome act, knowing the strange event could escalate and destroy the tranquility of his small mountain town. With a rising drug threat and never-ending conflict with Tia Manning, a formidable childhood friend with whom he has more than a passing history, Jonah fights for answers—and his fragile sobriety.
But he can’t penetrate every wound or secret—especially one fueled by a love and guilt teetering on madness.
From best-selling author Kristen Heitzmann comes a spellbinding tale of severed connections and the consequences of life lived alone.

Indivisible goes beyond the line of suspense into the realm of psychological thriller. Piper, Jonah, Liz, Miles and Tia all bring to the story line the the scars and emotional torment from their childhood. It has affected and ultimately shapes how they live their life. Of course, isn't that the way it is for all of us?
Someone is torturing animals and the town sheriff is trying to figure it out. Like any community, politics is playing a role into how public he can allow his investigation to become. He begins to realize that those same politics played a role in his own father's time as sheriff.
Among the community he is trying to protect and serve is Tia. She owns a candle shop. Wait... owns is a bad word because she was left behind by her family to run it against her will. Then there is Miles. He has severe issues regarding germs and fears regarding people touching him. But he is also brilliant. Bill Gates brilliant. There is also a veterinarian who is carefully guarding demons from having a twin sister. A sargeant who runs a bakery like the military. His apprentice who has no desire to be in the military, but just wants to create flaky masterpieces.
Although I felt the "who done it" was kind of predictable, Heitzmann knows how to weave suspense through every page making you want to read until you get through the very last page.

Disclaimer: As part of Blogging for Books, I did receive this book for free. The fact that I received complimentary products does not guarantee a favorable review. It does guarantee a review. A fair review. But I am not going to praise something unless I think it deserves the praise. If I don't like it, you'll hear that. And hopefully with enough detail as to why so you can decide for yourself if what I hate about it makes it perfect for your family.
