Over the Line

By Kelly Irvin



Gabriella has never forgiven her former fiancé, homicide detective Eli Cavazos, for breaking her heart. Then a man she’s never met shows up at her restaurant, a bullet in his chest and her brother’s name on his lips. Gabby soon realizes this man is connected to a powerful ring of criminals who know far too much about her.

Against her better judgment, Gabby turns to Eli for help in finding her brother. When she receives a cryptic text from her brother’s cell phone, she realizes she’s in deep and may be dragging Eli down with her. With her brother nowhere to be found and pain from her past threatening to overwhelm her, Gabby wonders how she will make it through this unexpected quest unscathed—or alive.

Taking us into the heat of Laredo, Texas, the secrets of a gun-smuggling ring, and the tensions on both sides of the border, Over the Line will keep you guessing until the last page.

Book Takeaway:

There's nothing God won't forgive if we repent and change our behavior. That doesn't mean we accept being abused or hurt by people who love us. But we shouldn't judge--certainly not without having all the facts.

Why the author wrote this book:

The story is the result of having worked as a newspaper reporter in border towns for six years. I also wanted to shine a light on the subject of forgiveness when it comes to being unfaithful. Other writers told me readers would not like a hero accused of unfaithfulness, which made me think about how we as Christians say we must forgive, but so often want to pick and choose what we forgive. This story examines this issue.
