Publisher's Description

If you had to choose between protecting all you hold dear in your own life or saving an innocent person from going to prison what would you do?

Thirty-four-year-old Delanie Miller has fled her dark past and is now settled into a quiet life in small-town Redbud, Kentucky. She has friends, a faux "family" who lives in her house, and a loving boyfriend who may soon ask her to marry him. Her aching dream of a husband and future children are about to come true. But protecting this life of promise means keeping a low profile and guarding the truth of her past from everyone.

The town's peace is shattered when Delanie's friend, Clara, is murdered, and Delanie finds her body. The police chief quickly zeroes in on Billy King, a simple-minded young man whom Delanie knows would never hurt Clara. She can hunt down evidence and speak out publicly against the chief only at great risk of her own exposure. But how can Delanie, who suffered such injustice in her past, keep silent now? She must find a way to uncover the real murderer yet save the life she's created the deceit-ridden life that will forever distance her true self from others and God.

With page-turning intensity, Sidetracked hurtles between Delanie's trauma in Redbud and the chaos of her past. Those experiences forced Delanie to reinvent her present but at what cost to her future?

    Another great suspense novel from Brandilyn Collins. I try not to miss reading any of her books because they never disappoint the mystery lover in me. Great characters and plot that keeps you guessing until the end. Delanie Miller is faced with keeping herself safe or speaking up for an innocent young man. Faith issues are intertwined with her life choices. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good mystery.

    Brandilyn Collins is an author you want to read if you like suspenseful mysteries. She is the queen of them. Sidetracked is no disappointment. This book revolves around a girl's past coming back to haunt her. In the end she has to decide how she is going to deal with it. Brandilyn has a way keeping you on the end of your seat. I will continue to read her books as fast as she writes them.

    Suspense is probably one of my favorite genres. I enjoy following a good mystery and trying to figure out who the bad guy is and why they did it. So when I received Sidetracked, I waited until I knew I would have a full day to read it. Needless to say, I still stayed up late to finish it:)

    This story goes back and forth from a woman who is in her 30's and back to a girl in her teens. I really don't care for novels written in this way but I liked this book and the mystery well made up for that aspect of the story. It opens with Delanie Miller going home from attending a wedding shower for Clara. But on her way home, she stumbles upon a dead body. That of Clara. Delanie is no investigator and definitely not wanting to deal with another dead body in her life. Yep, you heard me right. This isn't the first time she has had to deal with a murder. The first time just happened to be her mother. And the suspect/convict was her.

    I have to say my absolute favorite character in this book was Andy, Delanie's boyfriend. I was so waiting for him to just take off and leave her. After all, it happens enough in real life I just didn't expect him to stick up for her against his parents. But I loved his character and his values. I will admit I knew about halfway through who the bad guy was. I just didn't know all the details or why. And I wasn't sure who the person was that killed Clara. I was pretty sure off the bat that it wasn't Billy, but not quite positive:) And that is what makes this a page-turner that will have you staying up nights to figure it out. If you like a good mystery, you won't want to miss this one!!

    I received a copy of this book for my review purposes. All thoughts are 100% mine.

    This is a story that goes from the present to the past. It is well done and a quick read. I look forward to reading many more books by Brandilyn Collins. You likeDelanie from the beginning even when you hear about her past. You almost don't want her to ever have to relive that past even though you know that is what she will have to do. I received this book from bookfun.org for a fair and honest opinion.

    Brandilyn Collins does it again! She has mastered the suspense genre and shows her expertise in Sidetracked. With the clever use of flashback, readers get the history and background of Delanie Miller, the main character in the book. She has settled in the small town of Redbud, Kentucky. She longs for a man to love, marry and have a family with and seems to have found that man. She is going home from a good friend's wedding shower, when she discovers a dead body. From this point on, she agonizes over whether to get involved in solving the crime or not. If she becomes known to more than the people of her small town, the chances of her past being exposed increase exponentially. Is she ready to give up the life she has carved out for herself? Will her boyfriend understand her lying about her past? Can she face getting involved with the police again? Can she let an innocent person suffer for a crime he didn't commit?

    As the investigation and plot progress, Delanie's past is put before readers as well as her present. Readers relive the frustration, anger, unbelief at the lack of justice and bitterness she has experienced as well as deep depression. Now, forced to face her past instead of burying it deep within puts extreme strain on Delanie's mind and heart. She reaches for the only One who can see her through this seemingly impossible situation. She had turned away from God in bitterness in her past, but her soul eventually cried out for Him. She began praying and trusting Him again and her life slowly improved. Can she continue to trust Him with her life or will she again succumb to bitterness at the injustices she has suffered?

    This is another great suspense-filled mystery by Brandilyn Collins. The characters are easy to relate to and their life situations believable. I loved the eccentric people Delanie collected to be the family she missed out on in the past. I didn't give too many details about the story because it would ruin the impact of reading it for yourself. Don't miss this great, attention-keeping novel! I can't wait for the next one!
