"Fear No Evil" is a Christian romantic suspense novel. It's the second in a series but is essentially a stand-alone novel. You don't need to read the first novel to understand this one, and reading this novel first will spoil only the romantic outcome of the first novel.

The characters were likable, complex, and dealt with realistic struggles. The two main themes were gangs and domestic abuse. The suspense was created by physical danger to several of the characters and stress from work problems and family illness. Some setting, gang, and job details were woven into the story which helped to bring it alive in my imagination. There were some Spanish words used, but typically they were brief phrases that were then interpreted in the character's thoughts.

Many of the characters were Christians. One main character struggled with trying to be in control of her life and realizing she wasn't, and the other struggled with his anger at God for letting his dad (a pastor) get Alzheimer's Disease. There was some praying, and God brought a fair amount of (quoted) Scripture to the characters' minds to answer their questions when things seemed their worst.

There was no sex. There was one explicit bad word and a minor amount of "he cussed" style bad language. Overall, I'd highly recommend this well-written, suspenseful novel to those who like romantic suspense.


I received an electronic review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.
