I enjoyed reading this novel. The plot held my attention with its twists and turns, and the characters were very believable. The heavy physical attraction between the main characters towards the end of the book was unusual for Christian fiction, but not over the line. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good suspense novel!
