River's Edge (Cape Refuge Series) by Terri Blackstock

Book Description:  Was Lisa Jackson’s disappearance related to politics, her husband’s affair, or her long-term infertility? 
Ben Jackson is going head to head with Jonathan Cleary in Cape Refuge’s mayoral race—and he’s even expected to win—when his wife Lisa turns up missing the day before the major debate. Suddenly the town is in turmoil as proof of an alleged affair surfaces, indicating that Ben Jackson might have had motive to kill his wife. 
Meanwhile, newspaper owner Blair Owens has other suspicions—and so does Police Chief Cade. Together they dig deeply into the mysterious disappearance that soon spirals into a web of confusion, dark secrets, and unsettling fraud. 
Then the town’s psychic reveals the location of Lisa’s body—at the bottom of the river. Even though Blair doesn’t believe his paranormal gift is real, she can’t imagine how he knew where the body was. 
The small-town scandal quickly turns into a national media event. Is the murderer one of the obvious suspects . . . or someone they have no reason to doubt?

My Thoughts:  I enjoy reading books penned by Terri Blackstock.  This is book 3 in the Cape Refuge Series...yeah, I did it again and began in the middle of a series.  But after reading this book I'm not sure series is a good word.  To me this is a stand alone read unless I missed something and didn't know it.
Lisa Jackson has disappeared...gone missing the day before her husband, Jonathan, is throwing in his hat for the mayoral race.  Oh!my!what!turmoil!  The whole town hears of the affairs that Ben Jackson has been involved in.  It sure looks like Ben had motive to kill his wife.
But on the other of town...Blair Owens, newspaper owner, and the Police Chief have a different idea of why and where Lisa Jackson may have disappeared.
This is quite a read.  Suspicion, murder, suspense galore!  
I think Terri Blackstock must be the Queen of Christian Suspense!  
What a grand read!
