I found this book incredibly interesting. The story line is fascinating, especially with the recent discovery of those who were kidnapped years ago still being held captive. Definitely a good mystery to be solved.
I had a bit of difficulty with the romance thread of the story, though. It felt like the author needed to force a romantic link into the very short time frame of the story. I never felt a real 'spark' between the characters.
That said, I like the concept of the series -- people living in a town where they can be basically free from their past. I'm looking forward to the next book.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Nancy Mehl lives in Wichita, Kansas with her husband Norman and their dog, Watson. She’s authored thirteen books and is currently at work on her newest series for Bethany House Publishing.
All of Nancy’s novels have an added touch – something for your spirit as well as your soul. “I welcome the opportunity to share my faith through my writing,” Nancy says. “It’s a part of me and of everything I think or do. God is number one in my life. I wouldn’t be writing at all if I didn’t believe that this is what He’s called me to do. I hope everyone who reads my books will walk away with the most important message I can give them: God is good, and He loves you more than you can imagine. He has a good plan especially for your life, and there is nothing you can’t overcome with His help.”
She and her husband attend Believer’s Tabernacle in Wichita.
