    Before I delve into my feelings about this book I feel I should preface this with the fact that I read this as an assignment At the library where I work every year we are assigned different reading tasks which we have dubbed CORE in order to make sure our reference work is well balanced This year I had to pick two titles outside of my comfort zone Anything in the Inspirational section is outside my comfort zone and I'm not huge on crime fiction so this fit uite well It was not a horrible read I've definitely suffered worse Just not my cup of tea; so even if this book is awesome for other people it wasn't going to get a high rating from me to begin with All things considered giving this a 2 is a good grade Now onward CHEESE So much cheese Even with clean fiction I feel authors do not need to pepper their stories with excessively cheesy dialogue and awkward phrases I could be okay with it if the characters were introduced as having a particular uirk in that fashion or if the area had a certain dialect Neither of those situations were presented to me so I was left a tad baffled by the author's choice of many words Maddie and Chris our protagonists are introduced as late twenty somethings However by how they talk I would have guessed late thirties to forty easy I'm 26 and I have never heard someone my age use such phrasing Happier than a mustang in high grass Don't count your chickadees before they hatch buckaroo Are these people ranchers? Nope And Chris is often enough described with laugh lines around his eyes How much have you been smiling that you have crow's feet before you're 30? I just think the author was writing her age and not the age she assigned her characters Oh one Took me a minute to realize what this line was Come flashflood or hot place Just say Hell or High Water Christian fiction can still say Hell Story wise it was decent Despite my lack of enthusiasm for the characters involved the mystery was enjoyable However the confrontation was incredibly short and abrupt Happened in the last ten minutes of the book Lots of looking and snooping and researching and then suddenly Oh We're there We know everything The end It could have been mapped out better For the romance please refer back to the CHEESE It wasn't very believable for me We are told that Maddie and Chris have a slightly saucy past but the flashbacks are random and inconclusive Their current interactions obviously yield attraction but again I'm only being TOLD not SHOWN Overall for the right patron I would recommend this book and others like it The Love Inspired Suspense covers uite a bit of the shelves and they are indeed popular with the right crowd So if you're looking for a bit of NCIS with characters who are less developed and a tad awkward a small evangelical lesson and absolutely no smut couple kisses pick it up Odds are you'll like it

    Given Maddie and Chris' past history their unwillingness to work together at least on Maddie's part made sense I loved that unraveling the mystery reuired both Chris' investigative journalism skills and Maddie's ranger skills This was a satisfying mystery where everything worked together and the characters were likeable

    I love when the main character is a strong woman who knows how to handle herself This is a great mystery story with a hint of Christianity in it I liked how the author kept the main characters true to their character You believe the actions they take are really ones they have thought about and would take if they were real people I liked how the romance developed over the story and thought the story ended well I gave this book 55 stars I would recommend it to anyone who likes a Christian fiction book with mystery and romance This was a great readI would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read
