"Fantastic characters..." (RT Book Reviews)
This is the first book I have a read by this author, it will not be the last! I'm not going to do a big review because I do not want to give anything away, well I am going to say is this was absolutely fantastic and I look forward to reading the next two books in the series. The narrator was also fantastic, she gave each character a different voice and made the book come to life.
A huge fan of Dee Henderson & Dani Pettrey, I read the Book 'Sins of the Past', 3 short novellas by each of these authors. So I had high hopes that I'd found another 'fav'. I liked that she uses strong Christian characters thoughout and that she uses Scripture, but she didn't resolve enough of the action to feel they I'd reached the end of the character development for the story. Instead, it felt like we'd all fallen off a cliff and that was it. No closure on anything.
I loved this book! narator was good. the book kept me riveted the whole way through. wonderful suspenseful book with a christian perspective...sweet love story that left me hanging for the next book ... but an excellent plot.
"Suspense, drama, insight"
Overall the story was good. Main character development and introduction of new characters was relatively thorough. Something bothered me w the entire story though. Why couldn't the bad guys get to Serena if they knew where she was? Also, if the enemy had figured out who was sending notes and they had the resources insinuated, why couldn't she be found? The thoughts of the main two characters were well explained and both gained personal insight and deeper faith. The author did a good job with all that detail but didn't seem to have the same thought out detail with the crime solving. I think if law enforcement saw so many attacks on one person the protection detail would have come sooner and been different. I wanted to like the book. I did enjoy the characters and plot line just too many of the situations in the story started to feel implausible. Then the book ended with a cliffhanger! No wrap up to the mystery that was the main story of the entire book. I felt cheated. Now to get the true ending I guess I need to read the next book.
The narrator for this book did a good job with different voices and clear speaking but sounded robotic. Not enough emotion or change in diction through the reading. Exact same reading pace.
"Loved this book"
I absolutely loved this book. I was hooked from the the start. Can't wait to start the next one.
"Love the book!"
I did not like the performance- the up and down cadence was distracting and disappointing.
The story is amazing.
I really loved this story, it had just the right amount of suspense and romance. Kept me on my toes.
"What a great story!"
Thanks for the story, it was absolutely riviting, and the narrator told it beautifully, may God bless both of you and your families
"Edge of my seat!"
Lynette Eason has a wonderful way of keeping you wondering how the next turn is going to end - or is it? Love the narrator on this one. Anyone who likes Christian thrillers will love this author!
"Lynette Eason does it again! "
Lynette Eason has done it again! Loved this book. Check I've already purchased the 2nd book in the series when I was almost done with this one! She is now my favorite author!
I could not put this book down. I was guess from the beginning on. I even thought maybe Hunter was in on the plot. I like the way it ends. I'm excited to read the next one in the series. this authentic is quickly becoming one of my favorite.
"Enjoyed the book."
The story was very interesting and I enjoyed it. The narrator was not good. It was challenging to listen to her. I'm glad I pushed through.
