***** Unexplained Terror —– by Rox Burkey

The author, Ms. Karen Randau brings readers/listeners into the unexpected mysteries of Peach Blossom Orchard. MJ Goodrich, a veteran of Afghanistan military service, moved to Oklahoma to work in her mother’s business from the accounting side. MJ’s military job came with survival skills, investigative prowess, and renewed faith helping her overcome her-life changing injuries. The opening scene of this Christian Thriller has two running buddies, MJ and Kelsey, separated in the thick fog with terrifying consequences. Hours later, MJ awakes with an unknown rescuer who gets the sheriff involved. The details of the morning events that MJ relates seem vague and not backed by evidence at the scene.

Josh Rivers, the rescuer, recalls MJ from his service in Afghanistan. She’s been the face in his dreams ever since their paths crossed. He’s been fighting forms of PTSD since he ended his military career, lost his family, and took over his father’s business. Even though the sheriff seems unconvinced, Josh believes MJ and decides to help find Kelsey. Their partnership takes them on a wild ride finding unexpected connections and uncovering dangerous walls that threaten MJ and everyone she loves. Her faith keeps her moving and opens Josh’s eyes to his possible self-redemption. They forge an unbeatable bond from their foundation of faith to build trust and a promising long-term relationship.

Ms. Randau delivers three-dimensional believable characters throughout the story, making this a fantastic start to a series. Fans of Christian Thrillers will enjoy the storyline and ways faith gets inserted.

The narrator, Ms. Sharon Huff provides a perfect narration with distinctive voices, bringing the characters alive. Together, the mystery thriller offers listeners a front-row seat as the evidence gets gathered with an unexpected, breathtaking ending.

I highly recommend this story and look forward to the next in the series. There were no issues with the quality or production of this audiobook.
