Publisher: Revell
My rating: 5 stars out of 5
The suspense and action are beyond words!In the first novel titled, Beneath the Surface, I was hooked as that books starts with discovering a body underwater.There were themes of faith, romance, and danger.The story just kept me up late reading!Now, the author successfully resumes the tale of her characters but adds yet other aspects with such tension it is literally palpable!
There is human trafficking, which is a real problem.The author handles that aspect with wisdom and grace.I love the mystery in the book and how what happens at a crime scene makes readers want to know who did the deed.The author never reveals where she is taking the readers until we’re already there. I can only imagine that isn’t an easy thing to do.
Adam and Sabrina are two of the main characters and their interactions and romance are intriguing.Sometimes with books that are well writ…
