Indivisible by Kristen Heitzmann

Kristin Heitzmann's Indivisible is the latest in the "Christian" fiction market to incorporate mild obscenities within the story. This reviewer is aware of the difference in the categories listed on the back of the book (and this is listed purely as "fiction") but is disappointed when Waterbrook/Multnomah markets a book such as this, one that will be sold in Christian bookstores. I don't understand why we (as Christians) need to bend to the way of the world when we are called to be separate and different. The characters in the novel may be unsaved, but your readers are most likely people who don't want to read this kind of stuff and choose Christian fiction for that reason. I'm once again, disappointed.

About the book:
Battling his own personal demons, Police Chief Jonah Westfall knows the dark side of life and has committed himself to eradicating it. When a pair of raccoons are found mutilated in Redford, Colorado, Jonah investigates the gruesome act, knowing the strange event could escalate and destroy the tranquility of his small mountain town. With a rising drug threat and never-ending conflict with Tia Manning, a formidable childhood friend with whom he has more than a passing history, Jonah fights for answers—and his fragile sobriety.

But he can’t penetrate every wound or secret—especially one fueled by a love and guilt teetering on madness.

From best-selling author Kristen Heitzmann comes a spellbinding tale of severed connections and the consequences of life lived alone.
