Race Against Time  by Christy Barritt


When Christy's not working on books, she writes articles for various publications. She's also a weekly feature writer for the Virginia-Pilot newspaper, the worship leader at her church and a frequent speaker at various writers groups,women's luncheons and church events.

She lives close to the Chesapeake Bay and the ocean with her husband and two sons, two dogs and a houseplant named Martha. Visit her at her website, www.christybarritt.com.




From the book's back cover:
Were it not for her cop neighbor, widowed mother Madison Jacobs would be dead. Thankfully, Detective Brody Phillips interrupts an attempt on her life in the nick of time. But the would-be killer hasn't given up, and each tick of the clock brings the madman closer to finishing what he started. Brody vows to catch the serial killer plaguing the sleepy Virginia town...especially when he realizes the danger has followed him from the big city. With everyone around him at risk, it'll take everything Brody's got to do his duty and keep Madison and her son safe.

From Jo:
Madison Jacobs,  a widowed mother of a son lives in a sleepy little Virginia town where everyone trusts everyone else. When a new neighbor moves in next door, she takes the proverbial casserole along with her welcome to him. He seems aloof and not interested in small talk. That's a big enough hint for Madison. Unknown to Madison, her neighbor Brody Phillips has left New York City and is now a sheriff's deputy in her town. But their boy-meets-girl first encounter grows into something meaningful between them. When an attempt is made on Madison's life, Brody thwarts it. Christy Barritt leaves clues along the way as did Hansel and Gretel, but the reader probably won't know for sure till the last few pages who the predator is and why.

  9. I thought I was the only person in the world who ever named a houseplant. When I was growing up, we had a large philodendron given to my mother I named Mr. Phyllis (don't ask me why; I have no idea why around age 9 I came up with that).

    I love reading mysteries and I love reading Christian books, but I've never read a Christian mystery. It sounds like a great combination. I get so tired of the gore and the language in conventional mysteries. Count me in.
