Plotting is this author's strong point, and characterization is second to that. However, the book is written at about a third grade reading level, so there is an overwhelming amount of blow-by-blow telling. "He climbed into the car. She heard the gunshot and waited to feel the pain," etc etc. But it was interesting enough to keep reading, so three stars instead of two.

I registered a book at!

This was a pretty good romantic suspense novel. I will admit I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway and had not read anything by this author previously. I found that the novel jumped right into the action and kept it up for the entire read. I liked the interaction between Sarah and Bryan and found that it seemed very believable. It had plenty of twists and turns. I liked that it was inspiring - the characters we

I won this Love Inspired Suspense book from the Goodreads giveaways. So glad I did, it is a great story. The author starts the reader off in the middle of a kidnapping. The action and intrigue don’t slow down until you are reading the epilogue.
Sarah Langston is kidnapped and dragged into the Montana wilderness. The abductors want to know where her brother, Crew, is. In all honesty Sarah has no idea where her brother is but, the kidnappers don’t believe her. She can’t imagine what the men want

I love these formula style books; they are comfort reads. Much like comfort meals, these books are the perfect read after a long, hard, and grueling day. Each story is different, but has certain precepts that are followed, the most important being a calm happy ending. There are numerous mini genres within this larger genre of formula writings.
Love Inspired Suspense is one of these mini genres, a mystery with a love story intertwined. Another aspect of Love Inspired is that there

Second chance at first love.

Good story about high school sweethearts who have a daughter up for adoption a few years before. They've both gone on with life but find themselves thrown back together when Sarah is kidnapped and then rescued by Bryan who is after her kidnappers.

"TOP PICK! The plausible suspense, combined with fast-paced action, starts immediately and does not let the reader go. The determined characters demonstrate that no one has to be defined by past mistakes." RT Book Reviews, rated 4 1/2 stars

This book made me a nervous wreck! I felt as if I ran a race after finishing reading it. While it did have great and unending suspense you didn't get to know the characters very well. Somewhat unrealistic but a very quick read. The constant running drove me crazy.

This was the worst book I ever read. It was predictable and could have been written by a kindergarten child. Suspense does not exist here because an elephant would know the outcome after the first chapter. I feel dumber for having read this.

Maybe even a little more. It was not much of a mystery, as the villain was given at the beginning, but the action is almost non-stop, and exciting.

The action is non-stop from page one. And I loved the way the book started! Grabs the attention immediately and doesn't let go.

Pretty good. Too many "bad" situations in the story line. I know it is just a book, but it made almost cheesy
