Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.

As evil lurks around the corner, Katie, Will, and Philip (Will's brother) search for the answers . . . and things are never as they seem . . . Great historical tale, clean and full of mystery . . .
I like the Christian aspect the best, the good morals, then I love the mystery, the who-done-it. Listened in just a couple of days, filled with action from chapter 1!
Colleen Coble did not disappoint! I kept wondering, who did it? Who all is a part of this?!! As new information surfaced, she kept reeling me in! When everything fell into place, I was surprised I hadn't realized everything sooner! She is a good mystery writer! I thoroughly enjoyed the book, though I enjoyed the third book in this series the most!
Love the excellent way Colleen Coble keeps you guessing until the end. Great mystery, adventure and romance, told in an effective way that keeps your attention.
I loved how Colleen Coble intertwined the Gospel into this book!
Colleet Coble kept all the previous characters involved in unique ways throughout the book.
