really liked it

Another great book by Jackson Paul Baer. Book two in a series, and another magnificent thriller about a family who loses their mother and wife to a serial killer.

This book picks up where the other left off, with Isaac, the father and husband trying to build up a life with his new wife, and his children trying to carry on with their own. It’s about life, love, and the struggle of having lived through a horrible event.

Baer writes how he always has; with passion, clarity, and captivation. Is style is clear and beautiful, not over the top, and the book isn’t too long. Just the way I like it. His book are all very family centric, with a focus on home, love, and the relationships within a family, as well as the horrible things that happen to them.

But this book isn’t what I hoped for, not because it isn’t good, but because I feel like we’ve changed genre. Book 1 in the series is an exciting thriller, but since we’ve dealt with that already, this feels more like family drama, and at times a romance. It’s an interesting development in a series, one I don’t think I’ve seen before, but at the same time I felt a bit cheated.

There’s of course some excitement, and thrilling stuff does happen, don’t get me wrong. Like I said, the book is good, and the continuing of the story is gripping. It just doesn’t taste quite the same, do you know what I mean?

If you’re looking for a well-written series about a family that suffer through horrible things, trying to (and maybe managing) to come out stronger by the end, give this a try.
