Who framed Jeff? Did the dangerous brothers of Big Jack beat Jeff senseless, breaking several ribs when they heard of Jeff’s conversion? Or, was it Jeff’s materialistic former girlfriend who feels spurned?
Several of his college soccer teammates or former friends who had joined him in worldly exploits in his former life, feel betrayed. Or, perhaps it was his coworker at the small grocery store who blames Jeff Lawson for him getting fired and has vowed to get even with Jeff.
Kathleen Cobb’s first work, Walking the Narrow Road, is not a typical Christian romance novel. While learning about his new faith, Jeff must count on his new Christian girlfriend, Lisa Byers, to believe in his conversion and innocence. Moreover, he needs her and her friends to help him investigate, compiling the suspects and evidence which will point to the real criminal, so Jeff’s name can be cleared.
This isn’t Scooby-Doo according to Karen Kingsbury or Tracie Peterson, however. Instead of unmasking the monster, Jeff and Lisa work to change the hearts of their persecutors – even when she is kidnapped like Daphne, by the villain.
