Reality TV gone rogue. That's Traces in a nutshell! The suspense in this book is spot onwhile I never doubted that Alex and Kate would survive their time on the reality TV show Traces, I did question who was trustworthy, and the tension was palpable! Sometimes, romantic suspense falters on the suspense part, but that's certainly not the case here!

I also felt that the romance was believable, and I appreciated that both Alex and Kate doubted the validity of their feelings, thanks to the

I chose this book because it sounded different from my usual read but was still within the Christian Romance genre.

I made the mistake of beginning this book at dinner time, thinking that I would read a little and then go to sleep and continue reading again the next night. Dont follow in my footsteps! If you want any sleep at all, start much earlier in the day. I could not put this book down! By the climax of the novel, my eyes were burning to the point of

Traces by Denise Weimer is a contemporary Christian suspense that will have your heart racing as you read.
The main themes are about trust, hiding and running. In life we may choose to run from our past. Wouldnt it be nice to stop running from your past? Our pasts make us who we are but we need to face them, learn the lessons and move on. Sometimes God uses what look like setbacks as setups.
We all have times when we want to hide away. The safest place to rest is in Gods arms. No matter what we

This book was really good! I really enjoyed the idea of them having to be fugitives on the run for a reality tv show. I also like how she put together two characters that are complete opposites. The two characters really complimented each other. I liked how they learned some personal lessons while on the run. It came across as a message that we could all use at some point. This was a very original story. I look forward to reading more from this author!

Loved this romantic suspense. A real edge of your seat plot with lots of action. Fans of suspense will not want to miss this book. I received an arc from the author. This is my honest and unbiased review.

I really enjoyed this book, though it was not my usual genre. I was so happy to find it really entertaining! It definitely kept me reading, and I was, at different points, so nervous for the characters.
I really felt for Kate, she was really relatable in the circumstances. If anything like that happened to me, I probably would react like her, super out of my depth. She definitely grew throughout the book, even though it really only spanned a few days. Kate and Alex have to learn to trust each

An excellent romantic suspense novel from a new-to-me-author!
I was sucked into this story from page one and couldn't stop reading!
Kate and Alex were both great characters, they were not without flaws and things in their lives that they needed to face and work through, but that only made them more relatable. They were both very likeable and I was rooting for them from the get-go!
The unique premise of this book is what first caught my attention, and it totally lived up to my expectations!

Traces stared off with a bang and just kept surprising!

The cover of this book is what attracted me to it at first, but after a couple of paragraphs, I was hooked on the idea of this game show in which two people would have two evade this all-seeing-Eye for at least 20 days. It drew me in.

I expected Denise to run out of twists by the time I was halfway through the book, but no, she had plenty where that came from!

I knew that I was going to be a fan of this book as soon as I met Alex. Creating a

The thrill of the chase. A reality show with fugitives on the run, suspense palpable. This was a wonderful and the premise definitely interesting.
I love how both Kate and Alex were from opposite ends of the spectrum but paired together to work somehow they blended and learned to work together although Kate definitelyade some silly mistakes that nearly jeopardized their time on the show it all worked out in the end.
The book was definitely a wonderful couch trip with very descriptive images.

Wow! This book had me hooked from the beginning. I dont normally read mysteries, but since Denise Weimer is one of my favorite authors, and I have read all her other books, I couldnt pass this one up. And Im glad I didnt! I could hardly put it down and finished it in two evenings. My oldest daughter reads mysteries exclusively, so I cant wait to share this one with her. Now I anxiously await Denises next book. She cant turn them out fast enough for me! ...more

An interesting twist to the typical romantic suspense. A reality TV show were the characters pretend to be fugitives on the run. Things go a bit awry. The suspense kept the tension until the end. I loved the Opposites Attract romance the was lively and they complimented each other perfectly. This is a great page turner that touches on themes like fear and trust. A fantastic read. ...more

This book is full of action and suspense. It will keep you turning the pages to see what happens next. If you like christian suspense that keeps you on the edge of your seat, grab this book. I received an ARC copy and was not required to write a review. All opinions expressed are my own.

The latest from Denise Weimer is a fast-paced tale of love on the run. A reality television show was just the beginning, but when chased by more than technology ripped from the headlines, who can they trust? Traces is romantic suspense at its finest and you wont want to miss it! ...more

This was a great romantic suspense! The plot was a unique twist on a classic theme and I loved the character growth of the two main characters. This one was hard to put down and I am hoping that there will be a future book starring the heroine's best friend!

I received a complimentary copy of this book but am voluntarily leaving a review of my own opinions.
