Reviewed by Trudi LoPreto for Readers' Favorite

Betrayed In Beaufort is the story of Tory and Jack. As the book opens, Tory realizes that she has no memories and is not sure where she is or where she is going. As she walks along in confusion, passing many beautiful homes, a young man waves to her from a balcony and comes rushing down to greet her. Jack lovingly takes her into the house and reminds her that she lives here and that they are in love. Jack watches over Tory, making sure she takes her daily medicine and gets her rest. Each day they plan an outing to a place that kind of seems familiar to Tory. Slowly some of her memory begins to come back and slowly Tory tries to put the pieces of her life back together. The information she learns and how she puts the pieces together - thanks to friends, lawyers, doctors, and God - will end in suspense, excitement and the path for the rest of her life.

I did find Betrayed In Beaufort to be a little predictable but the twists and turns keep me reading with enjoyment. Linda Heavner Gerald wrote a story that addressed many elements - including God, abuse, love, hate, sickness - and pulled them all together to keep the reader both thinking and aware but also enjoying a very well-written story. I found myself rooting for Tory and wanting her to find all of the answers but I also felt the pain and confusion she was going through. Betrayed In Beaufort fits into several genres including Christian and thriller and is a good, clean, thought-provoking book that is a winner.
