For Our Good ~ Paula Mowery

For Our Good ~ Paula Mowery

Charlie Jarvis is haunted by loss that fuels her desire to rid the world of drug traffickers. When her next assignment takes her back to her hometown, she has to confront her painful past. She has no interest in a relationship since God seems to kill everyone she loves. 

Colton Thomas appreciates material things and the status of being a corporate pilot. When someone approaches him to deliver a package for a large sum of money that could wipe out his debts, temptation knocks loud on his door even as his partner, Marshall, slams it shut. Meeting Charlie challenges his non-committal stance with women. As he considers who he has become and the kind of man he would want to be for Charlie, he confronts his own shallow lifestyle and the fear that he would never be able to help her heal her wounds. 

As Charlie pursues the man causing high school boys to die of overdoses, she struggles with the secrets she keeps from Colton. With people around them shining the light of God and encouraging their courtship, both Charlie and Colton have to face hard truths about life, death, love, and faith. And maybe find a fresh start for them both.

My Review:  Charlie Jarvis is transferred back home to Tennessee where she’s been sent to work undercover. She will help another officer, Jordan whom she knew in school. Their assignment: discover who is selling drugs to teenage boys. Charlie has lots of secrets and can’t or won’t share them. She’s angry with God because life has taken so much from her.

Colton Thomas is a local pilot who transports Charlie from Florida. While Colton attends church regularly, he struggles with material things. He’s interested in Charlie, but he finds himself easily tempted.  

The couple work to build a relationship not only between themselves but with others in their community. Could one of them be the drug dealer she’s looking for?

Ms. Mowery has delivered a page turning suspense. Her thoughtful words and well-chosen phrases bring the action to life and the nail biting ending is captivating. I’ve read several of Ms. Mowery’s novels and this is my favorite.

She began writing in the area of nonfiction creating three Bible studies which were self-published. However, she crafted fiction stories which she shared with friends and family.
