Review of Not in the Heart by Chris Fabry






Truman Wiley used to report news stories from around the world, but now the most troubling headlines are his own. He’s out of work, out of touch with his family, and out of his home. But nothing dogs him more than his son’s failing heart. 

With mounting hospital bills and Truman’s penchant for gambling his savings, the situation seems hopeless . . .  until his estranged wife throws him a lifeline—the chance to write the story of a death row inmate, a man convicted of murder who wants to donate his heart to Truman’s son.


As the execution clock ticks down, Truman uncovers disturbing evidence that points to a different killer. For his son to live, must an innocent man die? Truman’s investigation draws him down a path that will change his life, his family, and the destinies of two men forever.





My Review

What can I say Chris Fabry is one of the BEST authors of my time. I stayed up all night reading Not In The Heart I had to know what was going to happen next. Book LOVERS I beg you do not pass this book up, run don't walk and get this book right away.



Chris is such a great writer you will NEVER in a million years  guess how this book ends, I was shocked, I stayed on the edge of the bed all night through the whole book, This book is not like most books that you read now days it is not predictable at all.



If you like stories about redemption then this book is for you. It is so good I'm having difficulty putting it into words! I guess when something leaves you speechless with awe it's a bigger compliment than a whole mess of words! 



There are not enough stars for this book. After reading every book Chris has wrote I can say with out a doubt he is one of my TOP 10  favorite authors and I have read a lot of them!


You will not want to miss Chris's next book Borders of the Heart coming in October.

A copy of this book was given to me by the author.
