This book was really gripping from page one. The intier story plot was really interesting, and the faith element was really well done.

The only problem I had with it was really just a silly little one. It was when SPOLIAR ALERT!! Jorden tried to kiss Krista the first time, she said no, that he wasn't a christian. Then, only hours later after he has said he'll think about christianity, they kiss. END SPOILAR ALRET I thought this was out of character for Krista espechially.

This is the book that first introduced me to Linda Chaikin. I loved this book just as much the second time around as the first. Though it is a bit confusing as to which people are good guys versus the bad guys the plot moved along convincingly and the romance between Jordan and Krista moves quickly but at the same time slow enough to be believable. I definitely enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who enjoys Christian historical fiction.

Though a fairly long book, it didn't take me long to finish, because I was caught up in it and didn't want to stop. Espionage, Swiss banking scandals, tragic Jewish history, Bible verses, flying bullets--they all combine for an exciting and unusual read. There were a few things I disapproved of--the normal kissing and that Krista was working outside the home--but I couldn't help liking it, as mysteries are fun.

Since I own this entire series and I've read many of the books twice I think I can safely say that I really enjoyed these books. Some mystery, some romance, some history; can't go wrong with a combination like that.

This took awhile to get in to, but it was a pretty good story. I thought for awhile that it took place right after WWII, but it actually modern day. Once the time period was clear certain things made more sense.

I actually enjoyed this book. Even though it started out really slow, the last few pages I almost cried, which it takes quite a bit for me to cry while reading a book.
