When a pair of raccoons are found mutilated in Redford, Colorado, Jonah investigates the gruesome act, knowing the strange event could escalate and destroy the tranquility of his small mountain town. With a rising drug threat and never-ending conflict with Tia Manning, a formidable childhood friend with whom he has more than a passing history, Jonah fights for answers—and his fragile sobriety.
But he can’t penetrate every wound or secret—especially one fueled by a love and guilt teetering on madness.

There's nothing like a good mystery, but sometimes I think I've read way too many in my lifetime. It seems most mysteries just don't carry the surprise and suspense that I expect. I get disgruntled when I've figured out who did what and why early on in the book. I desire twist and turns and the need to be confused and challenged.
"Indivisible" was an interesting read. It had enough creepiness with the animal mutilation to hold my interest, and a bit of romance thrown in. I was disappointed when I figured out early on in the book, who did the mutilations and why, but with the side romance going on, it continued to keep me interested.
The characters were interesting, but I had a hard time with some of the relationships and why they developed the way they did. It led more to the creepy side more than the believable, but that's what made the book a bit more interesting.
In conclusion, I would say this was an enjoyable and entertaining read. I enjoy cozy mysteries, and this, to me, would fall into that category. It's a nice clean read that would I think would please most.
