INDELIBLE by Kristen Heitzmann

Book Description:  In a clash of light and darkness, can courage prevail?

Rescuing a toddler from the jaws of a mountain lion, Trevor MacDaniel, a high-country outfi tter, sets in motion events he can’t foresee. His act of bravery entwines his life with gifted sculptor Natalie Reeve—and attracts a grim admirer.

Trevor’s need to guard and protect is born of tragedy, prompting his decision to become a search and rescue volunteer. Natalie’s gift of sculpting comes from an unusual disability that seeks release through her creative hands. In each other they see strength and courage as they face an incomprehensible foe.

When a troubled soul views Trevor as archangel and adversary, Redford’s peaceful mountain community is threatened. Together with Police Chief Jonah Westfall, Trevor presses his limits to combat the menace who targets the most helpless and innocent.

My Review: This is one of those fast paced, Oh! My! What is going to happen next reads!  I know when I pick up a book to read by Kristen Heitzmann I won't be bored!  INDELIBLE begins with a toddler, Cody, literally in the mouth of a mountain lion.  Trevor, the courageous, is trying to rescue Cody with the help of his partner.  
The toddler is rescued and this is where the lives of Trevor and Natalie become entangled. For Cody is Natalie's nephew.
INDELIBLE means 1. (of ink or a pen) Making marks that cannot be removed.
2. Not able to be forgotten or removed.  When you know the meaning of the word Indelible then this book makes sense to the reader and all the characters lives "take on the meaning" of Indelible.  
Natalie has an unusual frame of mind, Trevor has an unusual frame of heart...and they both seek to help and rescue those around them.
Family "issues", family ties, forgiveness, repentance and love are all the themes that I gleaned from this incredible read!
Of course, there's the mystery/suspense involved in the "pictures"--- the "ugliness" that can make a heart indelible!
This is not a read for the faint.of.heart!  This was a fascinating and thrilling read!  I simply couldn't put this book down!
