Forever Beth Lost and Found by Elizabeth Cook-Howard is the very engaging beginning of a great journey with many experiences. This story centers around a Domestic Violence Case Worker, the brutal murder of a mother and her six year old daughter and a New York City veteran Detective.
Elizabeth “Beth” Morris is a Domestic Violence Case Worker from New York that is thrown in an abyss when two of the most important people in her life are murdered. These two aided in her climbing out of her own tragedy which was filled with abuse of all kinds, meretriciousness, extreme loss and almost her death. Also, they aided in her learning the deep capacity of love and how to give and receive it.
Because of the murders, she meets Detective Kevin Walker under extremely less desirous circumstances. He is very patient, understanding and caring towards her as his life has been hugely impacted by tragedy too. Detective Walker gets further involved with her while working to solve when danger lurks around her and her past resurfaces in her present. We get to witness those dangers, struggles, growth and someone who stays getting in her own way.
Mrs. Cook-Howard has a great story here, it needs to be cleaned up and edited, as it is a hard and at times confusing read. There are numerous times where you have to read something twice or even three times to understand it. I read all three and as a package, it is an awesomely engaging story!!
I give this novel 3 stars
