Fall has been exceptionally busy here at the Quiet House but I've been trying to catch snip-its of time to read. Tyndale sent me a copy of this book and I have to admit it is completely out of the genre I generally read. I'm not a big fan of mystery novels - Christian or otherwise - and I tend to shy away from them. I'm glad I received this book though because I really enjoyed it!
Author DiAnn Mills crafted this story, the third in a series, about Special Agent Bella Jordan who is assigned a murder case in Texas. We learn about Bella's past and how it intersects with the main male character, Carr Richardson. I enjoyed that Carr was a believer of Christ. I didn't really expect this - I think that stems from the genre's I tend to stick with. This book was action packed from the get go and kept me guessing the whole way through. I enjoyed the well-written dialog and the story was easy to follow. I'm sorry I missed out on Ms. Mills earlier works and I'll have to jaunt over to the library to check them out.
If you enjoy a good mystery, action with a little romance - and stories of God's grace and redemption - you will enjoy this book.
Many thanks to Tyndale House Publishers for providing me with a complimentary copy of this book to enjoy. My review is completely my own opinion and other than the free copy of the book, I was not paid to write this post.
