    One thought on “Heaven's Prey”

    1. Ruth Warner accepts a challenge to pray for Harry Silver, the man who viciously raped and murdered her beloved niece, Susan. While this helps ease her torturous fury and grief, Ruth's husband, Tony, cannot understand why she would pray for such a monster. One evening, circumstances force Ruth face to face with Harry, as his next intended victim.Whoa, as a fellow contemporary fiction author, I like to think I write books that deal with challenging subjects, but Janet Sketchley has raised the bar [...]

    2. I have never read a more profound message of forgiveness and God's unconditional love than in Heaven's Prey by Janet Sketchley. Imagine God putting you face to face with a potentially psychopathic serial killer. You have no idea where you are, other than in some musty-smelling cabin, deep within unfamiliar woods. You have one weapon: prayer. Can you look evil in the eyes and stay calm? Can you maintain faith as the days pass that God is hearing your cries for help?Harry Silver, the man who bruta [...]

    3. Janet Sketchley has done an amazing job on her first novel. I want the novels I read to evoke an emotional response and Heaven's Prey delivers - big time!

    4. This novel highlights the power of God over pornography, abuse of women, and evil in general.The main character, Ruth Warner, is a somewhat boring forty-something Christian who persistently prays that God will save Harry Silver, a rapist and killer of young women including her niece. One evening, as Ruth returns from a prayer meeting, she's mistakenly abducted by none other than Harry instead of his intended victim, a dishy blond. What follows is a long psychological, physical, and spiritual bat [...]

    6. The storm that 46-year-old Ruth Warner braves to attend her weekly prayer meeting is a perfect opening to Heaven’s Prey, a debut novel by Nova Scotia native Janet Sketchley.

    8. Janet Sketchley takes us where we don’t want to go, only to shine the Light of Hope on a life without none.

    9. Ruth Warner is on her way home from a prayer meeting her husband, Tony did not want her to attend.

    10. A good story and good writing trump all. What would you do if you were kidnapped by your niece's rapist and murderer?Ruth Warner soon finds herself asking the same question.

    11. I ran across this author on a Facebook group and thought her books sounded good. I commented, and that comment led to an offer to review a couple of her books. This is the first book in the Redemption Edge Series. I believe this is the author's first book, and it is a great debut novel. The book was very suspenseful with a great Christian message woven throughout it. Although fictional, it does show how God can work in anything, even the kidnapping at the hand of a cruel rapist and killer. The b [...]

    12. This was a novel hard for me to read but also hard to put out of mind. I had to know how it ended, and not only in order to write a review.In Heaven’s Prey by Janet Sketchley we meet Ruth, the main female character who is still mourning the loss of her niece, a young woman who had been brutally attacked and murdered. We meet Tony, Ruth’s husband who refuses to accept the God to Whom his wife prays for the killer! In a dramatic turn of events we meet the killer, Harry, who had escaped from pr [...]

    13. I couldn't put this book down because it was so intense. And yet I had to close my eyes from time to time because of that very intensity.Time and again, I had to stop and wipe my eyes. A normal reaction when I'm reading about the power of God and the presence of His redemption. Janet Sketchley has an amazing talent for drawing readers into the story. And once pulled in, it was easy to stay. I will say that there are a number of lengthy flashbacks through the middle of the story. They didn't both [...]

    14. A gripping suspense story that peers into the heart of GodBeware! There are possible spoilers in this review.Janet Sketchley has written a well-researched and well-written suspense novel, emphatically Christian in content and message. The message is that God’s desire for justice is balanced by His grace and mercy such that no person is beyond redemption. Sometimes God’s people reject this aspect of His heart. Forgetting how much He has forgiven them, they often judge others as being beyond r [...]

    15. This is a very well written suspense/thriller that feels as though it has been thoroughly researched.The author's ability to weave a complex story of faith and redemption is admirable.Due to the themes in the story I found it very hard to read certain parts of the book. This had nothing to do with the quality of the scenes, just my own personal comfort zone.This is definitely a book that makes you take a look at yourself and that makes you question what you would do in a similar situation and wh [...]

    16. This book touches on a lot of sensitive areas, rape, murder, God and overall humanity. Harry didn't have the best childhood, but starts to turn his life around and make something of himself. But instead he chooses another path filled with destruction, and one woman's faith, Ruth, help sets him free. I enjoyed the story line, it was fast moving with lots of twists and turns. My only struggle was with how quickly Harry accepted God, after everything he did and stood for I expected more of a strugg [...]

    17. Beginning with the title (does heaven prey on people? is there a play-on-words going on here with prey and pray?) and continuing through to the last page, this book is seriously thought-provoking. If you’re looking for a nice light read to help you unwind, keep browsing. But if you want a story that will make your heart race and your mind reel, click “Buy” right now and don’t look back. This is one book you won’t put it down and forget about when you’re through.

    18. This book had me from the first page. I intended to read it slowly, but it was hard to put down. I thought it was very brave of the author to create an antagonist who was so very evil. This is a powerful story of faith and redemption, reminding us that God even loves the most vile sinners, and that forgiveness is as much for us as it is for those who have wronged us.

    19. A good read on having absolute faith and trust in God, believing in HIM, and doing what He asks, even if it's taking the "hard" path or when it seems He's left you. I get annoyed with the overly goody-goody goodness of some fiction Christian female characters to the point of quitting the book. Though other parts of the book are certainly fiction, the heroine was likeable and honest.

    20. Sketchley writes with rare power the kind of book that I dislike reading, a book about horror and serial killing. And yet her plot, her characterization, the skill of her writing pulled me on to the finish. Don't read this before you go to bed!

    21. This was one of the best novels I've read. I loved how the author wasn't timid to show the faith beliefs of characters as well as the realistic, gripping suspense.

    22. I read the first chapter in this book on a blog a few months back and couldn't get it out of my head. I was lucky to be able to get it through my library.This book starts fast paced! Ruth, a middle-aged woman, gets kidnapped! Her kidnapper is no random person. He is none other than Harry Silver, the same serial killer/rapist that kidnapped and murdered her niece several years ago. As a recently escaped felon, he is bent on satisfying his evil desires one more time before his flight to freedom.On [...]

    23. she is kidnapped by the same serial killer that killed her niece. It is violent at times and has some vague descriptions of what he did to his victims. I liked the ending but it was too violent for me to give a high recommendation.
