Drawn by the Current (The Windy City Saga, #3) by Jocelyn Green


 Lives depend on the truth she uncovers.
She can't give up her search.

A birthday excursion turns deadly when the SS Eastland capsizes with Olive Pierce and her best friend on board. Hundreds perish during the accident, and it's only when Olive herself barely escapes that she discovers her friend is among the victims.

In the aftermath of the tragedy, Olive returns to her work at a Chicago insurance agency and is immersed in the countless investigations related to the accident. But with so many missing, there are few open-and-shut cases, and she tries to balance her grief with the hard work of finding the truth.

While someone sabotages her progress, Olive accepts the help of newspaper photographer Erik Magnussen. As they unravel secrets, the truths they discover impact those closest to Olive. How long will the disaster haunt her--and how can she help the others find the peace they deserve?

My Review


 

Just a heads up that this is book three in this series, and it can be read alone, the thing that ties these reads together, Chicago.

This is Olive Pierce's story, and I love that girl, she has such a big heart, and goes beyond to help those she loves and cares about.

Olive and her best friend Claire are on the SS Eastland, when disaster strikes, and according to the author's notes, more died here than on the Titanic, if you don't count the crew, and to be truthful I never heard of it.

This is a Christian read, and this girl wears her faith on her sleeve, she does risk everything to bring justice and closure.

This is a book that will grab you and never let go, there is so much going on, and you will never see it coming!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Bethany House, and was not required to give a positive review.
