A good read

I enjoyed reading this mystery. It isn't just a good mystery with a romance thrown in for a bit of icing on the cake. It is a story of faith and redemption. I recommend it highly to anyone who likes a good mystery.

A REALLY good mystery about twin sisters who were raised apart and discover each other as adults. They have plans for a life together in the same Oregon coast town, when a series of strange and terrifying events changes their plans. The story is a Christian story with one of the main characters working through a crisis from a Christian perspective and other characters who are not Christian working through it from their perspectives. Good balance is given to both perspectives.

It was good in the end, but reading it on Kindle stressed me out - the book was on there twice so the end came up as 50%, it felt like a long drag which was a shame

Another good read from Lorena McCourtney. This one was more preachy than her previous books and I suspect the way Christianity is seen in the US is very different from Uk interpretations. The ending of the book felt rushed which cost it a star. The mystery element was good and I'm looking forward to reading the third book in the series.

The two I read from this series went basically like this: Independent, wealthy girl meets Christian boy who tries to get girl to "accept Christ" whilst undertaking some sort of murder mystery together, and of course falling in love. Good not great.

Good contemporary Christian mystery/Romance. Lots of pieces to the puzzle and keeps you guessing until close to the end. I'm not a huge romance fan but that is just a small piece of the story.

This is a good book for when you need a light escape without being fully sucked in to the story. Not bad, but quite predictable.

Better than the first book. However, still only OK. I hope the last in the series makes it worth it.

Was a very good read and was pleased that the "Christian" catagory was also true.
