Misstep, by Deborah Dee Harper, is a great winter tale set in a small town with an eclectic group of residents. Hugh is the pastor of the church in Road’s End. He and his wife, Melanie, are newcomers to the town. Throughout the story they face a variety of mishaps that all culminate when a blizzard traps the residents in with the bad guys.
One of the subplots revolves around Emma, an old woman who has distanced herself and been distanced by the townspeople. She and Melanie finally get to talking during the blizzard. To me, it’s one of the most memorable scenes in the book. The funniest scene might be when a group of ladies are all held hostage – you’ll have to read it.
Deborah is a friend of mine, so when Misstep first came out two years ago, I jumped at the chance to purchase and read a copy. Book two, Faux Pas came out this summer. Deborah also has a children’s adventure series being re-released soon. She’s a great person and a fun author. I’d encourage you to check out her books!
