Chester Blue shows up on Miss Millie's doorstep one day with no return address. She was having a terrible day after finding out her store will have to close. She finds hope with a little note that is tucked into Chester Blue's suit case...a note that says "God Loves You. -Chester Blue." She decides that she will send Chester to someone else that could really use him and includes a little spool of blue thread, just in case. It's such a beautiful tale of just how much a few simple words and faith can give you just what you need in that moment. Chester helps people of all different walks of life and eventually finds himself back to Millie. I myself was having a difficult week and my mind would always wander back to this book... back to Chester's words, "God Loves You. -Chester Blue." Sometimes all someone needs is that reaffirmation. I admit this is not a typical book that I would read but it sends a wonderful message. My only issue was the narrator of the audiobook. He was a real snoozer :-/
I didn't like the performance at all. It almost put me to sleep.
I have not read the print verstion.
OH YEAH!!! Great voice and portrays the emotions to a T.
I went a little out of my comfort zone when I asked to review this audio book. Mystery thrillers aren't usually the type of genre that I would read. I find myself saying that a lot....not my genre. I find that when I do branch out, I usually love them. I hate to be one of those readers that stays in that zone. I'm glad I took a chance on this novel. My expectations were totally blow out of the water.
Countermeasure is extremely well written and held my interest from the start. The storyline has a perfect balance of mystery and romance that would excite any adrenaline fan and romance junkies. I was all too please to find that the romance in the story was SMOKIN' HOT!! Seriously though... where can I find myself a geek like Trevor. I think I found my new book boyfriend! How can you go wrong with a hot, NSA techie that's Irish!? You can't! Cassandra is exactly what I love in a female lead. She's a bit snarky and strong and from her description, is an auburn haired beauty. I have a thing for red heads :) This book made me feel like I was going on an adventure....a really sexy one. I'd find myself rubbing my hands together, grinning like the Cheshire cat and thinking "this is about to get juicy!" And not to mention the drool. Looking forward to the rest of the series.
