For five years Samantha (Sam) Blacker and Bo met at the same time each year at Baker’s Sandwich Shop. They enjoyed each other’s company. Bo would tell her about Jesus and Sam shared a little about her life with him. Sam dated her neighbor Rob a few times until she saw his true nature. When she told him she would not go out with him again, he began harassing her. Fearing for her safety she took out a restraining order against him. When Bo’s attorney, Clarence Wright, informed Sam that John Bolden Winston “Bo” had passed away and left her the Big Fork Inn & Eats at Big Fork Lake, Alabama, Sam saw it as a way to escape the clutches of Rob. She quickly packed her bags and took up residence in the apartment above the restaurant. The Sheriff was suspicious of the new comer in town. However, one local was glad she’d moved to Big Fork Lake; Noah found himself falling in love with her. Just as Sam was settling in she stumbled over the dead body in cabin 7. Soon she found herself charged with murder and was facing trial.
"Escape to Big Fork Lake" by Mary L. Ball is an entertaining Christian suspense-filled romance. The relationship between Noah and Sam is well done. They loved and desired each other but held strong to their Christian morals and remained celibate. I wasn’t sure who did the heinous crime until toward the end of the book. There were clues thrown in and red herrings. "Escape To Big Fork Lake" is a fast, easy read and a great cozy mystery.
