More About Terri Blackstock
Terri Blackstock is a New York Times best-seller, with over six million copies sold worldwide. She is the winner of two Carol Awards, a Christian Retailers Choice Award, and a Romantic Times Book Reviews Career Achievement Award, among others. She has had over twenty-five years of success as a novelist. Terri spent the first twelve years of her life traveling in an Air Force family. She lived in nine states and attended the first four years of school in The Netherlands. Because she was a perpetual “new kid,” her imagination became her closest friend. That, she believes, was the biggest factor in her becoming a novelist. She sold her first novel at the age of twenty-five, and has had a successful career ever since.
Recent books include her acclaimed Intervention Series (Intervention, Vicious Cycle, and Downfall). Other recent favorites include Shadow in Serenity, Predator and Double Minds, and the Restoration Series, the Newpointe 911 Series, the Cape Refuge Series, and the SunCoast Chronicles series.
In 1994 Terri was writing romance novels under two pseudonyms for publishers such as HarperCollins, Harlequin, Dell and Silhouette, when a spiritual awakening prompted her to switch gears. At the time, she was reading more suspense than romance, and felt drawn to write thrillers about ordinary people in grave danger. Her newly awakened faith wove its way into the tapestry of her suspense novels, offering hope instead of despair. Her goal is to entertain with page-turning plots, while challenging her readers to think and grow. She hopes to remind them that they’re not alone, and that their trials have a purpose.
Terri has appeared on national television programs such as “The 700 Club” and “Home Life,” and has been a guest on numerous radio programs across the country. The story of her personal journey appears in books such as Touched By the Savior by Mike Yorkey, True Stories of Answered Prayer by Mike Nappa, Faces of Faith by John Hanna, and I Saw Him In Your Eyes by Ace Collins.
Terri Blackstock currently resides in the state of Mississippi. Terri Blackstock was born in 1957.

Disappointing series by otherwise wonderful author Apr 3, 2006
Warning: if you are a Blackstock fan, please don't blast me for this review; I am too! But this book made me so frustrated I had to force myself to finish it. Blair has not become any more likeable since the first book, and that's a problem considering she's the main character. Truth be told: there are no likeable characters in this book. This book seems to be so plot driven that the characters are forced to commit every action whether it seems in their nature or not. I don't understand why the Owen sisters even live in Cape Refuge, everyone in town is mean and stuck-up. Every cop or agent in the book is an imbecile. Morgan is so passive she spends most of her time either oblivious to what's going on around her or sobbing. Blair is so aggressive, she truly is a woman only God could love (hey, I have days like that too, but Blair seems to be stuck in a rut). She runs roughshod over everyone and they give in to her, even when it doesn't make sense. I love the idea of Hanover House and Cape Refuge, but I won't be finishing this series. I can't. Too many implausibilities and the power of the message of Jesus was lost. That said, I loved Newpointe 911, Sun Coast Chronicles, and many other books by Blackstock, but this series just isn't worth your time.
Praise for book 2 Feb 19, 2006
I love books in series. Whenever I finish a book that I have enjoyed, I want more. I like the way that Blackstock introduces a few more characters in each book and gives you a chance to get to know them before the next book. Her characters are believable and I admire their "humanness" (if that's a word). She does a very good job of working the scripture theme into the books without jamming it down your throat. Her books give me a reason to pause and reflect. Good job, Terri! Book 2 is a hit with me.

Can you ask for more? Sep 5, 2005
TERRI BLACKSTOCK creates the atmosphere for a fabulous second book by the last chapter of Cape Refuge. On impulse, I couldn't wait to go to the library and check out the second. Blaire and Cade are back with a romance slowly starting to unfold. But, one problem, Blaire's not a Christian.
The story begins with Cade running over a pedestrian that decides he needs to just hop in the road. But, the secret of this pedestrian will take Blaire and Cade on a scary journey. Cade disappears, and when a letter comes back saying Cade is married and is happy, Blaire can't believe it. This is the basis of the fact of a real relationship unfolding. SO, she sets out to find him, and its her courage that saves his life.
But, an ending that will leave you smiling, is the icing of the cake that Blackstock presents.
