Imprisoned by memories, Claudia Campbell lives each day in the shadow of a ten-year-old murder. Who can set her free?

On the way home from a football game, a decade earlier, a masked gunman opened fire on a Texas school bus.  Cheerleading coach B.J. Remington was killed, but her murderer was never found. Claudia, who had a close friendship with the young, spirited teacher, constantly relives the anguish of that day, caught in one moment in time. When her husband, the assistant district attorney, becomes determined to uncover the mystery of that tragedy, the secrets buried over the years threaten to tear their family apart.

Officer Casio Hightower will never forget the day his dreams were destroyed. A star quarterback with a promising future, Casio was on top of the world—until one bullet changed everything. He is eager to help Victor Campbell find B.J.’s killer, the man who shot him. Maybe solving the case will help silence the demons driving Casio to hurt the woman he loves.

As the Campbells and Casio teeter on the brink of losing everything, will they be able to discover that what begins at the crossing ends at the cross?

    " I'm not sure if this book is Serita's Jakes first novel.reading off-and-on. cant seem to get past the beginning. It's sorta like a bad Lifetime movie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J Maisie | 1/22/2014

    " The Crossing is one of those books that you have to keep reading to find out what will happen next. I really like how this book is consistently split into different parts, told from different viewpoints, one being the viewpoint of the victim in each chapter. I especially liked that viewpoint. My only gripe that prevented me from giving this read 5 stars was that the spiritual theme didn't appear until close to the very end rather than laced throughout the novel. This book was still a good read because the suspense would keep the reader turning the page. "

    " It was hard to get into the story due to the constant changes of points of views. I did enjoy the ending of the book and thought it had a good twist to it. "

    " Many twists and turns but you can keep up. For first ladies first novel it was great. Didn't quite see the ending but that is what makes a great novel. Can't wait to read the sequel. Good Page turner. "

    " I won this book off of goodreads. I really liked the the book and its story line. I did not like how the mystery was shown you kind of knew who did it well before the end of the book just did not know why or how. Other than that a great read kept my interest through out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 9/26/2011

    " I won an ARC in the goodreads giveaways. It was just the right combination of mystery mixed with religious and moral messages. You can tell it is a great mystery when you do not have a clue who done it till the very end. This book is easy to read and hard to put down. "
