Summary

A three-in-one bundle of suspense and excitement as missionary kid Kennedy Stern faces more danger, mystery, and controversy than this anxiety-prone college student knows how to handle.

Confronted with questions of underage abortion, plagued by a stalker and paralyzing PTSD flashbacks, and eventually caught in the center of a police brutality scandal, Kennedy discovers that her first year at Harvard involves a lot more than passing a few lab classes and fulfilling her pre-med requirements.

With her parents serving North Korean refugees overseas, Kennedy befriends a loving and highly opinionated pastor, his hospitable and encouraging wife, an eccentric but respectful roommate whose worldview is drastically different from Kennedy's, and a foreign lab partner who's harboring a grave secret he'd do just about anything to keep from being exposed.

The Kennedy Stern Christian suspense series tackles controversial issues facing the church today and brings them to light in a way that encourages questions and fosters discussions without ever turning preachy or heavy-handed. Find out why listeners from all denominations, all walks of life, and all sides of the political spectrum are devouring this thought-provoking series from edgy Christian fiction author Alana Terry, who has won awards from Women of Faith, Grace Awards, The Book Club Network, Readers' Favorite, and many others.

disappointed

the overall story/stories were good and even had value, but very disappointed in the drama telling it, lost poignancy with the eordy dramatics.

LOVED these stories

I loved listening to these stories. This is not my normal book genre but for whatever reason I purchased and downloaded this box set to my audible. I'm glad I did. The main character, Kennedy has an overwhelming way of getting into dramatic situations. The issues brought up in each of these story lines are tough and the author tackled them head on with a no nonsense approach. I would recommend ❤

Irritating as an Audio Book! Very disappointed!

Let me begin by saying that I loved the idea of the story itself, and I think it would have been good book to read because you would be able to skip past the boring parts, but, as an audio book...it was very irritating. The main character, Kennedy, comes off as a complete airhead. Kind of funny since she made it to Harvard. She can't remember to charge her phone or take it with her when she goes someplace. She blames God for all of her bad choices and irresponsible actions. And, she thinks more than she talks. Having to listen to everything she is thinking before speaking to someone is IRRITATING in the fullest. The narrator does not change voices for the characters at all, which makes it even worse. By the last book...I was ready to pull my hair out. I wanted to scream STOP THINKING ABOUT IT AND TALK. I gave it a fairly high rating because I think it would be a good book to read...but not to listen to. If I had realized what it was going to be like before I got so far into the series, I would have returned the book to Audible. But, since I listened to the whole series, I feel I shouldn't do that.

I listen to many of the books in my library, over and over because they bring me such joy. They are amazing. This book, I will NEVER listen to it again. I didn't hate it, but I definitely did NOT like it.

Good story line okay but....

This could have been ok if the narrator had not had such a flat sounding voice. Not much emotion. Only finished listening because I wanted to know how it ended.

Narration was NOT good

This box set was a disappointment. The narrator did a horrible job on the male characters’ voices. The first book seemed to have parts of the story missing, as though it was abridged. The stories were just ok. Wish I hadn’t used a credit.

Very monotone reader. Showed almost no emotion.

The storyline was great! The characters could have been brought to life with a little more enthusiasm from the reader. Even the intense and emotional portions of the book seemed bland because of how monotone the reader was.

Buy a phone charger

I absolutely loved the stories. With all her Dad's great advice to keep Kennedy safe, why doesn't he have her buy her a cell phone charger and carrie it in her purse?

first book was good...

The first book was good, and fast paced enough to keep my interest. However, the other books I kept hoping would get better, and the more I read, the more I became really frustrated with the main character. I liked the idea of the books dealing with today's issues, however, the author just didn't move the story along well enough. Also, one minute Kennedy was frozen in fear, and the best she would do something completely out of character for someone so fearful. I just became really annoyed overall with the story. Again, good idea, but just could have been done better.

Deals with modern day issues

This is a fairly good listen. The first two books were great. The last book was too slow paced for me and I thought the ending was disappointing. I didn’t like how “whiney” the main character is in the last story. It started to frustrate me. Overall, the stories are decent.
