It’s Christian and a Thriller. I think I’ll call it a “chiller”. It certainly chilled my blood. I appreciated the Christian overtones. From the desire of the main (romantic) characters to remain chaste, to the concern for the spiritual well-being of murder suspects and murderers alike, there is a definite sense that all is not mayhem: God is still in control. If it were not the case, this book would appeal only to those who are twisted enough (or just curious enough) to enjoy shows like CSI, Criminal Minds, or Murder She Wrote.
It is not really a book I enjoyed, per se, though it was well-written. However it was an interesting study of human nature…of those that know God and those that don’t. The author did an especially good job at reminding the readers (through Drew) that Christians must always beware of thinking that they are somehow above making mistakes: we all of us need God. It is a good reminder.
It definitely kept me reading and wondering “whodunit” ’til the end.
Thank you to NetGalley (https://www.netgalley.com/) and Bethany House Publishers for providing me with a copy of this book to read and review.
