This is an excellent suspense novel, considering that it is a debut.
A bit on the short side, for my personal preference… 🙂 but I enjoyed it and found it a fun, easy read. In the past, before I discovered how much I prefer longer novels, I lived for this kind of book. I can read one in an hour, and it is full of fun and excitement while you’re reading. This book is one of the best Love Inspired Suspense I’ve read!
So…yes, the story is short. But a lot happens in those pages!
Action, danger, and mystery are throughout this story. Grace is the heroine, and must find out why someone wants her and her sister Chloe dead.
The story begins with Grace arriving just in time to see Chloe’s attacker.
Then the pursuit begins. Grace is also a target, and she has no idea why.
She’s recently returned to her hometown, and is desperately trying to find answers, as well as pick up the pieces to help Chloe.
Romance is found throughout. Grace’s high school sweetheart, Evan, is her main protector, defender, and friend. I thought the romance felt a bit forced, but I think it was supposed to happen quickly to show they both still had feelings for each other from way back when.
The whodunit. I had my suspicions. But, there are many twists and turns, and I was kept guessing on how it all came together until near the end.
I found this a well written, exciting mystery story.
