My Review: As the overview states, this is definitely a "can't-put-it-down thriller that will have readers up until the wee hours devouring every page." I loved every minute of this book. From the mystery of "who did it" to the romance to the action-packed conclusion, I didn't want it to end. The descriptions and the plot were not over the top or hard to believe as some writers tend to make these types of stories. I really enjoyed the believableness of the story.
The characters were well-developed and well-written. I loved both Mac and Lisa. They were both strong characters, with a lot of heart, dedication, and faith. Reading the story from Jessica's point of view provided an added layer of thrill. To think that one person could be so calculating and cold is just phenomenal.
Both characters have relocated because they felt led by the Lord to do so. Trusting in God on that level is sometimes a hard thing to do. These characters do it with humility and grace. I think that's the message the author is subtly trying to get across.
Overall, this edge-of-your-seat thriller had me turning page after page until the very end. I look foreward to reading the next book in Irene's Men of Valor series.
