This was the last in a three-part series. I loved each one! The author's writing draws you in from the beginning with detailed descriptions of the setting, including the significance of Charleston history, and the characters. I could not put this series down until I finished the last page of THE LIES OF SAINTS.

While I love the suspense, I especially loved the sisters who own the antique shop where Nick likes to hang out. They are a hoot! It was also gratifying to see Nick grow spiritually.

A page-turner ...

...which I found to be well-written. The characters, like in the first of this series, "Crown of Thorns," are believable and intriguing. As in the first book, there are formatting problems, such as it looks as though returns are randomly placed, even before the end of a paragraph. And there are font inconsistencies, especially when italics are used. So both of the books need further editing, but the writing is so good I most definitely will keep reading the series.

A relatively enjoyable romp. Some of the writing is a bit clumsy, and the storytelling is fragmented at times ; the author skips over scenes that would be interesting for the reader. But an easy light read.

I've always liked Brouwer's books and this is no different. A Christian detective thriller... what could be more fun!

In the final of this three books series, Nick Barrett is investigating a 25 year old disappearance. What he learns uncovers deeply held secrets of the rich of Charleston. Another great book where each answer leads to more questions.

Read my full review at Carstairs Considers.

It was hard to get into, but that may be because I hadn't read the two books that came before this one. It was the first Christian physchological thriller I've read and about 50 pages in I started enjoying the book. Much less violent than secular ones.
I enjoyed the first book in the series, but really just had trouble getting through the second two, though maybe I just wasn't in the "mood" and will try them again someday.
