About the Book

From the church librarian to the garage mechanic, folks in Crook Mountain, Tennessee seem to be either hindering or helping an old missing-person investigation. And a certain waitress who’s fairly new in town may have more at stake than any of them. Now, throw in Joan Ryan, a semi-retired dietitian from Atlanta who arrives on the scene by pure happenstance. Joan may be the secret ingredient in a recipe of comedy, resourcefulness, and danger!

“Such interesting characters I would like to meet. I am praying that this novel will be shared with many hungry readers.” Natalie G.
“You have a gift with words and I was very aware of every descriptive word that is so much a part of your style. They kept my mind alive!” Jeanne W.

I truly enjoyed the story and meeting all these new “friends”—well, some not so friendly! I so admire the talent it takes to imagine a plot, complete with all the characters, scenery, etc., and then put it all together with dialogue and all the details needed to make an appealing, interesting story. I’m looking forward to reading the sequel! Millie E.

About the Author

A unique and fresh voice is what reviewers said of Betsy Lowery’s first book Pause: Everyday Prayers for Everyday Women (2004). Now, readers of her novels are talking about her gift for fiction. In A Stranger’s Promise and in its sequel No Doubt It’s Love, Lowery uses vivid description, “real” characters, lively events, snappy dialogue, chuckle-out-loud humor and gems of life meaning to entertain and to go a step further than that. Lowery’s personal experience (raised in a Southern Baptist preacher’s family, called into ministry at age 20, now married with two grown daughters) enables her to speak through both of these novels and through their characters. What’s the message to be spoken? It is a Christ-centered message above all, demonstrated through characters some of whom are just beginning to really value faith, prayer, and scripture! A North Carolina native, Lowery has called Alabama “home” since her mid-twenties.
