I didn't realize Love Inspired had a Suspense line until I picked up this book. I'd never heard of the author. And now I'm disappointed to learn that she only has one other book out, and it's not another romantic suspense. Cuz I really enjoyed this book. A very cleverly plotted mystery that keeps you on edge.

Cole Leighton, on vacation visiting his cousin in Atlanta, boards a bus one day, and opens the mystery novel he is reading. Minutes later, he watches as the events of the book seem to be un

After reading the reviews, I'm thinking there is something wrong with the link? The book I read is a Love Inspired Christian romance book, but it seems the reviews are from a totally different book...

Anyway, this was a good book that hooked me from page one. Cole Leighton, an engineer, is on vacation after experiencing a tragedy in his life. He's reading what he thinks would be a great thriller, but turns not so exciting when the events start actually happening. When he finds the missing girl, t

Cole is waiting for a bus, reading a suspense novel. He notices a woman who looks so much like the cover model that he does a double-take. Then, on the bus, a crew holds them up and takes her hostage. The scene is just like the one he read in the book.
It turns out that MacKenzie is the model from the book's cover, and someone is trying to reinact the entire novel on her. But the story doesn't clearly say if the heroine lives or not. Will She?
This is the best book Love Inspired Suspense has pub

Kenzie Jacobs is the victim of a stalker and Cole Leighton an innocent by stander trying to save her, or is he. A great romantic suspense that'll keep you guessing. Love the ending. This book would make a good movie of the week.

This is the first book I've read by this author and I quite like her style. The suspense hooked me from the beginning and keep me intrigued to the end. I didn't feel like I was reading just another dropped-out-of-the-mould story that is typical for this line of mass produced novels.

Berta told me about these "love inspired suspense" books. I was dubious, as I a not a fan of "romance" novels, and most "Christian" novels are two heavy-handed, but they are OK, and this is the best of the lot so far.

This is one of the best Love Inspired Suspense books I've read in a while. I love how the plot of this book was based off of someone copying the plot line of a thriller. I was indeed on the edge of my seat from the beginning.

These books need to be clearly labelled that they are Christian books. While I am Christian I do not like reading the romances because they're usually boring and even more unbelievable than the contemporary romances I normally read. Stilted writing, twilight zone theme, unbelieve characters.

Although a little unbelievable at times, this was pretty intense and kept me guessing.
