More About the Author

Terri Blackstock 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.

In 1994 Terri was writing romance novels under two pseudonyms for publishers such as HarperCollins, Harlequin 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 about ordinary people in grave danger. Her newly awakened faith wove its way into the tapestry of her murder mysteries, offering hope instead of despair. The prevailing themes of her novels is that the crisis is sometimes the blessing, and that all of life is a test. 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.

Her book INTERVENTION was a New York Times best-seller. it was inspired by her own personal struggles with a daughter on drugs. In the book, a mother hires an interventionist for her drug-addicted daughter. But on the way to treatment, the interventionist is murdered, and the daughter disappears. Barbara, the mother, sets out to search for her daughter. Terri modeled Barbara after herself, and poured many of her own emotions and experiences into that character. She hopes families experiencing drug addiction will find comfort and guidance in this murder mystery.

Other recent books include PREDATOR, about an killer who stalks his victims through social networking sites, and a stand-alone novel called DOUBLE MINDS. She is also known for her popular Restoration Series, Newpointe 911 Series, Cape Refuge Series and SunCoast Chronicles Series.

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 asTouched 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.

Product Description

From the Back Cover

Sequel to the #1 best-selling Cape Refuge

First a dead stranger. Now a missing Police Chief.
Did Chief Cade run off to elope . . . or has he met with foul play?

The body in the morgue had no ID. No one knew who he was or where he came from when he walked out in front of Cade’s car. And when Cade learns he had a gunshot wound before he was struck, finding his identity becomes even more urgent.

Then Cade vanishes. Authorities discover the victim’s name, and the woman Cade was last seen with turns out to have been the dead man’s wife.

Speculation abounds about Cade’s relationship to the woman and his part in the victim’s death. His disappearance makes him look even more suspicious.

But Blair Owens doesn’t believe the rumors. Something has happened to Cade, and she’s determined to find him. Saving Cade’s life will take faith in a God whom Blair has always doubted—but he may be her only hope.

A good clean investigation thriller with none of the usual unbelievable violence. Real life people with real life challenges. One of a good series.

Great second book of her Cape Refuge series 13 Oct 2003
By Beverly J. Scott - Published on
Format: Paperback
SOUTHERN STORM is the second book of Terri Blackstock's "Cape Refuge" series. Blackstock is a renowned Christian writer who offers her books free to any readers not happy with her talent. During a storm on Cape Refuge, Cade, the police chief, runs over a strange man. The autopsy reveals that the man had been shot before he was run over. Within hours Cade disappears and Blair, good friend and town librarian, seems to be the only person in town worried. Blackstock entices readers with her action-packed plots, her warm natural characters and her realistic dialogue. As Blair uses her stubborn persistence to locate Cade, she is slowly drawn toward the God she wasn't always sure existed. Terri Blackstock is a gifted writer and SOUTHERN STORM is a sure best-seller.

A Great Blackstock Classic 9 July 2003
By Daniel Darling - Published on
Format: Paperback
I read this book and found myself having a hard time putting it down. Terri Blackstock clearly has a knack for the whodunit, but what separates her from others is that she so carefully weaves in the faith element. In Southern Storm, as in her other works, the transformation in the lives of Karen, Sadie, and Blair are as important if not greater than finding the murderer and rescuing Cade.
I strongly recommend her books because they satisfy the reader's urge for great literature and yet he leaves feeling spiritually refreshed--as if it is not just a wasted excercise. What also is refreshing and encouraging is the way Terri deals with grown-up issues and tough life situations with grace rather than judgmentalism. In Southern Storm, you get the idea that these are real people dealing with real issues and real fears. Even the strongest Christians battle doubt and discouragment and even question the will of God. The reader feels kinship with the heroes and heroines who identify with everyday life struggles.
If you're hooked on reading, but would rather part with trashy romance novels, look no further than Terri Blackstock. It will be an experience you'll not soon forget.

Somewhat Disappointing !! 15 Jun 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am a huge fan of this writer as a rule but "Southern Storm" was not the usual gem of a read Terri Blackstock usually provides. I found it somewhat of a disappointment, I'm sorry to say. I would have given this book 3 1/2 Stars if that were an optiion. The storyline was dragging and lacked the usual snap Terri is so well-known for but I love the characters so even though the plot was at times boring the book is still worth the read. I'd check it out at the library however if they carry it.

Wow, just when I thought Terri wrote her best! 28 April 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I read this book in two nights. It would have been one but I had to go to work the next day. Terri did some real changes to her plot writing on this one, and added more twits then the windiest road. The second half was so intense your heart skips a beat and your palms get sweaty. I suggest wearing gloves on the second half. j/k.
I highly recommend this book! But only if you read Cape Refuge, you will be lost otherwise.
The worst part of this is that I have to wait a couple of months for the next in the series.

Praise for book 2 19 Feb 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.
