Unholy Hunger By Heather James Giveaway!

Evelyn Barrett wants to die. As long as her daughter's murderer dies with her, she is ready to go. Why did this man--this stranger--destroy her family? Why has he not been brought to justice? Why is she forced to live a life of anger and grief? Amid a million questions she cannot answer, Evelyn knows one thing for sure: this murderer must be punished for his crime. Perhaps the harder lesson is this: the ultimate truth--of crime and verdict, of life and death--cannot be swayed by a mother's revenge. In this first book of a new, page-turning series, a woman will be brought to her limits before she finally recognizes and reconnects with the source of true peace.

Heather James is an author, attorney, and columnist. Unholy Hunger is the first novel in her Lure of the Serpent Series.

 This was the first book I read by Heather. I wanted to read and review it based on the cover alone.
I had a very hard time with some of the themes in this book, child abuse, abduction, molestation, murder, but let me tell you one thing it is a can't put down book. Heather writes with such raw emotion.
The fact that there is bad stuff going on, you still hear a story of forgiveness in this must read.
 I recommend this book and I can not wait for book number two in this series.
I was given a copy of this book by the author
