Helpless by Daniel Palmer

   Life in the small town of Shilo was pretty typical until that day. Kelly Hawkins was murdered not far from her home. The suspect? Her estranged ex husband. Their relationship was volatile and had been for some time.  Tom Hawkins, coach, guidance counselor and estranged father was shocked when he was told he was the prime suspect.   Things just get stranger from there. Someone is intent on destroying Tom's life and he's not even sure why.  Just when he thinks things might be settling down, a new wave of problems hit.  The police think he's having an affair with one of the girls on his soccer team. Then they find child pornography on his work laptop. Meanwhile, Tom's daughter Jill is trying to live a normal life after losing her mother and now having to live with her father.  It's not easy when each day brings a new hurdle for her to jump. The father and daughter need to rebuild what her mother tore down over the years.  It was going to take time.  With each day bringing a new issue for Tom to deal with, including the murder of his attorney, how can he hope to build a relationship, a strong relationship with his only child?

    This book takes you on a ride full of twists and turns you won't even expect. Just when you think you've got it all figured out, another bombshell is dropped.  Secrets, mystery and intrigue make this adventure even better.  I really truly enjoyed this book. I wasn't sure at first, but the more I read, the more I liked.   Powerful, intense and spine tingling! Helpless is a terrific book! 

   I didn't find any issues with this one.

   I gave this one 5 out of 5 books because it had me sitting on the edge of my seat.
