Burying her grief, Emory Chance is determined to find her daughter Daisy’s murderer—a man she saw in a flicker of a vision. But when the investigation hits every dead end, her despair escalates. Not even the kindness of her persistent suitor Hixon can soften her heart towards the community of friends that long for her healing. And as the questions surrounding Daisy continue to mount, and Emory’s safety is shattered by the tattooed man’s dark pursuit, she can’t shake the sickening fear that her own choices contributed to Daisy’s disappearance. Will she ever experience the peace her heart longs for? A gripping suspense novel, A Slow Burn is about courageous love, the burden of regret, and the bonds that never break. It is about the beauty and pain of telling the truth and letting God take over. Most of all, it is about the strength of forgiveness and what remains when shame no longer has power. Mary DeMuth’s distinctive new voice in Christian fiction will keep readers enthralled as they ask soul-searching questions in this second book of the Defiance, Texas Trilogy.

Listener Opinions

    " Book two of a trilogy beginning with "Daisy Chain," the story leaves Jed and turns its attention to Daisy's mother, Emory, a drug addict who blames herself for her daughter's death. She has to learn that she is worthy of love--a lesson that is long in coming and ends on a bittersweet note. The weak point in the story is the long-suffering lover, whose infatuation with Emory is never really justified to my liking. Nonetheless, it's extremely engrossing. "

    " This is the second book in the Defiance Texas Trilogy by Mary DeMuth. I really enjoyed the first book, Daisy Chain. Mary writes about difficult subjects... and the God's persistance in pursuing us, and granting us healing grace. It reminds us that we are never so bad that God can't restore us. "
