Race Against Time...Incredible Story!


Title:  Race Against Time
Author:  Kimberley & Kayla R. Woodhouse
Pages:  352
Year:  2011
Publisher:  B & H books
Readers are introduced to a plot that has suspense, tension, intrigue, murder, faith and romance.  The story starts in book one, No Safe Haven, by the same mother and daughter authors who team up to write these fictional novels set in Alaska.  In the first book, the audience learns that military men have worked to undermine a special project.  Now that the program is in safe hands when the program is run for a test; the problem begins to glare brightly with the military.  Cole must find whatever clue his friend left before his death in order for the program to work correctly, but it becomes a race to locate the clue. 
Zoya loves sprint racing.  Her dogs are well cared for and when she sets out one day to prep them for an upcoming race, she witnesses a murder and is shot.  Her mother, Anesia, is called to the hospital.  After that, the mother and daughter are seemingly the target of the killer’s scope constantly.  Needing full-time help with her award-winning kennels Anesia hires Sean who has left Boston behind to get a fresh start.  The constant pressure of being hunted by unknown assailants brings out the deep battle residing in Zoya’s heart and causes Anesia to realize that without opening her heart to love the burden will surely tear her apart.
As I read through both novels I fell in love with the story that shows how sometimes unknown issues of our hearts come to the surface when life’s pressures are at their highest.  Both mother and daughter are learning how to let go of control and anger in order for them to hear His voice.  Sean is a man who made a choice to leave his father’s company because the actions of his Dad were illegal.  Sean must learn to forgive his Dad and talk to him respectfully with the hopes his Dad will be open to the Lord.
I love how the military program is what the evil character is desperately trying to get their hands on.  As it causes Cole, who is in the military, to rethink how even America could use the program for wrong reasons as all mankind struggles with a sinful nature.  The authors show how each character must decide whether to draw near to the Lord or to walk this life without Him.  The mother and daughter team have written more than just No Safe Haven & Race Against Time, but these two books are connected and can be enjoyed by adults and teens alike!  These are two wonderful books to give as presents to readers in your household!
My rating is 5+ stars.
