The story line was really interesting and kept you wondering who the murderer was There were times when the relationship between Madison and Brody seemed a bit drawn out, but it was encouraging to I really could not put this book down I knew that if I did I wouldn t be able to sleep I just had to see the serial killer brought to justice There s WAY suspense than romance here, and that s fine with me The romance was pretty unconvincing, but I was concerned about the main characters survival than anything else Some people have said this story was predictable, which it was just a bit towards the end However, I found myself mumbling several times, HmmI don t trust him and quickly realized that I didn t trust ANY of the characters. I have two major complaints with the story. First, the ending was SO rushed We go from nearly being murdered to chatting about the future in just a couple pages There s a very cliched, very vague revelation of motive at the end which turns out to be not nearly as clever as I expected based When searching for a suspect, sometimes the closer to home you look is the best plan Madison Jacobs, a widowed mother of a son lives in a sleepy little Virginia town where everyone trusts everyone else When a new neighbor moves in next door, she takes the proverbial casserole along with her welcome to him He seems aloof and not interested in small talk That s a big enough hint for Madison Unknown to Madison, her neighbor Brody Phillips has left New York City and is now a sheriff s deputy in town Their boy meets girl first encounter grows into something meaningful between Madison and Brody When an attempt is made on Madison s life, Brody thwarts it Christy Barritt leaves clues along the way as did Hansel and Gretel, but the reader probably won t know for su Thank you Goodreads and Christy Barritt Love winning a bookespecially a murder mystery wrapped up in a touching love story I really liked Ms Barritt s inspirational message of faith not fear. The portrayal of Madison s belief ran the realistic gamut of questioning not only God s plan but her faith in it, to the peace one feels when you do surrender to the knowledge of it s His will being done Some Christian fiction characters fall into a trap of being pious or preachy and thus, losing the impact the author is striving for The range of honesty and growth Ms Barritt allowed to both Madison and Brody also allowed the reader room reflect on their own faith without the feeling of being lectured to. A couple typos and plot point could be nit picked, but overall I recommend to anyone who enjoys a romantic suspense 3. 5 Stars.
Christy Barritt is an awesome author I love all of her series books This book is not a book in any series It s a romantic suspense book and truth be told, I don t like romance books all that much The mystery part of this book was very good, though, and it contains Barritt s usual magic with plots I think the romance part is rather sappy but it can be overlooked It s your basic boy meets girl, can t accept he likes girl while girl can t accept that she likes boy and of course, they eventually get together But the mystery involves a creepy killer who has followed the cop, handsome Brody, from the big city where he murders people whom he first forces to write suicide notes Madison, Brody s pretty widowed neighbor, comes into the killer s sights but luckily, Brody is there to save her Christy Barritt always writes captivating stories, this was no exception I loved the characters It kept me guessing till the end and the motive was a shock Looking forward to by this author.
