Forever Beth Our Love, by Elizabeth Cook-Howard, is very engaging and the continuation 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. It then transcends into a tale that is packed with suspense, danger, blossoming love, mystery and growth.
Elizabeth “Beth” Morris is a Domestic Violence Case Worker from New York that is thrown into 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 extreme, 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 the case when danger lurks around her and her past resurfaces into her present. We get to witness those dangers, struggles, growth and someone who stays getting in her own way. We also witness their love growing then fully blossoming.
We are taken on a journey that is full of twists and turns that come about primarily because this is one hardheaded woman with a completely independent spirit. This journey depicts a man that is patient, fierce, steadfast and determined. He loves this woman! As this tales unfolds, the dangers that erupt are heart pounding and just keep coming and coming. The twists and turns were wonderfully penned; one would think that they have the story figured out then “bam” it changes in a snap. The appearance of her ex-husband had me wondering many times if their love would last, and at times I lost patience with this emotionally driven story.
Mrs. Cook-Howard has a great story here, but 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 stories and as a package, it is an awesomely engaging story.
