Vines of Entanglement

By Lisa Carter


A tangled web of lies characterizes the life Laura Mabry has built for herself and her son after the tragic death of her husband. But Laura’s carefully constructed world slides off its axis when she stumbles upon the body of a young college student on the recreational trails of Raleigh’s Greenway. What’s worse, Detective Jon Locklear is Laura’s worst nightmare...and her dream come true. Jon has spent years trying to forget Laura. Past experience has taught him that he can’t trust her, but old habits—like old loves—die hard. When the killer turns his attention on Laura, Jon may be the only one who can save her. Truth and murder lurk just around the corner for Laura. Can she find the courage to face her deepest fears and unravel the lies of her past before she and her son become the Greenway Killer’s next victims?

Book Takeaway:

How we must come to the end of ourselves before we can find restoration and healing. Forgiveness of self and others. The hope and restoration that only comes from God.

Why the author wrote this book:

I wrote this book for those who’ve found themselves ensnared in entangling sins and encumbrances. For all who’ve struggled to overcome fear, loss, and guilt. For all who need to hear that no one is beyond God’s grace and mercy.

The Christian life is not a sprint. It is a marathon.

Each of us have our own, individual race to run. My race will be different than your race. But each race will be full of peaks, valleys, bends, and pitfalls in the road. And there are no shortcuts in life’s amazing journey of faith. Detours will only derail and delay us from reaching the stadium of faith’s crowning hope.

I’m thankful for the cloud of witnesses who’ve lined my path, cheering and encouraging me along life’s journey. I’m thankful for Jesus, beside me every step of the way.

Readers—Thank you for reading my books and being a blessing to me along this stretch of my race. When we cross life’s finish line I pray we will each hear Jesus say, “Well done.”

Until then . . .

Because of the joy that lies ahead if we—if I—endure: let’s throw off what weighs us down; run the race; and fix our eyes on Jesus.
