"A rollercoaster ride with a lovable protagonist and a suspenseful, twisty plot." --Colleen Coble Stolen art. A New Mexico archaeological dig. An abandoned dog. And a secret that's worth killing for. Evelyn McTavish's world came crashing down with the suicide of her fiancé. As she struggles to put her life back together and make a living from her art, she receives a call that her dog is about to be destroyed at the pound. Except she doesn't own a dog. The shelter is adamant that the microchip embedded in the canine with her name and address makes it hers. Evelyn recognizes the dog as one owned by archaeologist John Coyote because she was commissioned to draw the two of them. The simple solution is to return the dog to his owner--but she arrives only to discover John's murdered body. As Evelyn herself becomes a target, she crosses paths with undercover FBI agent Sawyer Price. The more he gets to know her, the more personally invested he becomes in keeping her safe. Together, they're desperate to find the links between so many disparate pieces. And the clock is ticking. "Over the years, Carrie has mastered forensic art, fine art, and her own brand of offbeat humor. As a novelist she combines these skills with another: puzzle writing--scattering puzzle pieces all over her fictional universe and then dropping them into place in twists, surprises, revelations, and side-pocket whimsy until the big picture emerges, never too soon, always on the brink of disaster." --Frank Peretti… (mais)

Tavish’s world is turned upside down when her fiancé dies, but soon, it becomes much worse. She tries to return a dog to its owner, only to discover he has been killed. And when she tries to report it to the police, the body and all traces are gone. Things get rapidly worse, and Tavish soon is on the run for her life. She must decide whom to trust, and eventually, she puts her trust in God. The story is a suspenseful one, and so much happens to Tavish that you may wonder how she manages to survive. It is the much convoluted and contrived happenings that led me to give it three stars instead of four. The book is quite entertaining and I enjoyed it, but I found some aspects so far fetched that their inclusion detracted from the story. ( )

Title: Fragments of Fear
Author: Carrie Stuart Parks
Pages: 336
Year: 2019
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
My rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Want to read a very captivating and thrilling book? Look no further! Carrie has once again entertained and captivated my attention with a tale that is just outstanding! I started the novel one evening rather late and hated to wait till the next day to finish it, but alas I had to. So, when I picked it up the following day, I just kept turning pages until the very end. It was an unbelievable tale about a woman who doesn’t want to be called by her real name but by Tavish, which is a part of her last name.
Tavish is a brilliant woman who owns a company, is an heiress when she turns 30, and an artist. She views herself different from what is reality, and all she wants is to be loved. What changes her whole life is that she loses her fiancée and inherits a dog she at first loathes. But life is about to rush her headlong into trouble and running for her life.
Tavish meets an FBI agent named Stewart though he doesn’t reveal that part of his life to her at first. Tavish and her mother don’t get along at all but wait to read what happens between these two characters! There is romance, danger, mystery, faith, adventure and more awaiting you in the pages of Fragments of Fear. When you’re done, don’t be surprised if you are wanting to read another of Carrie’s books!
Don’t hold your breath when reading this exciting and surprising tale!

Fragments of Fear begins with a funeral and a bombshell of a revelation that sets the pace for the entire book. Carrie Stuart Parks gives readers another read bursting at the seams with action, unexpected twists, and plenty of questions to be answered about what, exactly, is happening.
Multiple suspects, stolen art, dead bodies, and a dog are pieces of the puzzle that just do not seem to fit together—at least not until the end when everything starts to quickly fall into place.
Evelyn McTavish (Tavish to everyone but her mother) is a character I sympathized with at first but came to admire as the story unfolded. Her self-image may be in the ditch but her tenacity and fight to expose the truth are her best characteristics. Plus, her journey to faith is authentic and well-paced.
As a reader of several of Parks’s other books, I knew the romance side of things would be downplayed. So, of course, my only critique of this book is that I would have liked a little more of that interaction between Tavish and Sawyer Price. Even without that one preference, the intense and intriguing suspense is worth the time invested in reading this one.

Fragments of Fear by Carrie Stuart Parks is a stand-alone suspense mystery. Evelyn McTavish is trying to move on after the death of her fiancé. Selling her art is the beginning but when she receives a call to pick up a dog that the shelter claims is registered to her everything seems to explode. With her life in danger her path crosses that of FBI Agent Sawyer Price. Now, with someone she can trust maybe she’ll make it out alive. If she can figure out just what is going on! This was a great story. Even though the odds were against her, Tavish never gave up. I would definitely like to read more from this author.

I received this book from Celebrate-Lit in exchange for my honest review. ( )

Fragments of Fear brought me slowly into the storyline. At first, I felt Tavish was one of those characters I might find it difficult to like. Because I am not a dog person, the dog did not initially capture my attention. But as I kept reading I found myself drawn into the story.

Sawyer Price, FBI agent, immediately caused me to like him. I also found myself wanting him to help Tavish find her way out of the chaos and intrigue she was in when they first met.

The mysterious and dangerous aspects of the story kept me reading. I found myself wanting to know how the story would turn out in the end. The mysterious woman who shows up at Tavish’s fiance’s funeral made me angry. She was a rude and ill-mannered individual. I have to say I appreciated the journey Tavish found herself on and her willingness to stick to her claims that her fiance was murdered instead of someone who would commit suicide.

The storyline took me a while to get into, but once I started enjoying it, I was glad I stuck with reading it. I have to say in the end the dog played a necessary role in the story.

So if you like books with mystery, danger, or pets, check out this book for yourself.

I received a copy of this book for my fair and honest review. ( )
