The Crossing by Serita Jakes

The Crossing by Serita Ann Jakes

10 years ago, Claudia, daughter of a prominent pastor, witnessed the murder of her best friend and teacher,BJ, on a bus full of high school students after a football game. She had gone on with her life until she suffered a miscarriage two years ago and is now suffering panic attacks related to the murder. Her husband, an assitant District Attorney re-opens the 10 year old case when new evidence is brought to his attention. We follow the struggles of Claudia, and Casio, who had been a football player and was shot on the bus during the same incident and is now a police officer who occasionally beats his girlfriend. I was drawn into the story and followed it, interested to find out who the murderer was. I thought some of the foreshadowing was too overt and there were too many connections between people. The bad guys were too evil and the good guys were too good and all of the sinners suffered due to their sins. I found it a bit too neat and tidy, but it is an interesting story and I did enjoy reading it.
I received this book free to review from Goodreads.
