The Crossing

Book Description
Imprisoned by memories, Claudia Campbell lives each day in the shadow of a ten-year-old murder. Who can set her free?
On the way home from a football game, a decade earlier, a masked gunman opened fire on a Texas school bus.  Cheer leading coach B.J. Remington was killed, but her murderer was never found. Claudia, who had a close friendship with the young, spirited teacher, constantly relives the anguish of that day, caught in one moment in time. When her husband, the assistant district attorney, becomes determined to uncover the mystery of that tragedy, the secrets buried over the years threaten to tear their family apart.
Officer Casio Hightower will never forget the day his dreams were destroyed. A star quarterback with a promising future, Casio was on top of the world—until one bullet changed everything. He is eager to help Victor Campbell find B.J.’s killer, the man who shot him. Maybe solving the case will help silence the demons driving Casio to hurt the woman he loves.
As the Campbells and Casio teeter on the brink of losing everything, will they be able to discover that what begins at the crossing ends at the cross?

My Review
The Crossing is a wonderful Christian fiction mystery. I absolutely loved this book because I just couldn't stop reading! I was captivated by Serita Jakes novel from the moment I picked up the book.
Ten years prior to the present day, a gunman boarded the high school bus at a railroad crossing and killed the cheer leading coach BJ. Claudia Campbell was with BJ til the moment she died and has panic attacks from the memories. Her husband, Victor, is the assistant DA for the small town in Texas. He reopens the case to try to find the man who murdered his wife's best friend.
Casio was the star football player on the high school team, he was also shot in the arm by the gunman but the wound wasn't fatal. He joins Victor to solve the case to find the man who ruined his career as a football player.
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good mystery!

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Press in exchange for a honest review.
