Suspenseful & satisfying. Will definitely re-read.

It is definitely suspenseful, the characters stay in character with the disability and there is romance and faith lessons. It was a book I will definitely re-read, like Karen Ball's Family Honor series, numerous times.

Kind of boring

The story wasn’t bad, but the characters were a bit unbelievable, and at times the plot was rather dull. I’ve read another book by the same author, which was better.

incoherent rambles

Incoherent rambles heavily induced with religious helplesness.
Very boring. I barely made it to the end.

It’s practically monotone....

The story was predictable but ok. The main problem was the narration. It was practically monotone and the man sounded like he was a dead person talking. I usually like Lynette Easton’s books but this one was a dud. Don’t waste your time.

Eason Excels as Usual

Lynette Eason's a wonderful author..always 5stars all the way! She remains consistent once again while many Christian Fic. authors have begun to compromise. Eason is 1 author I've never hesitated to buy her work. Many times I was asking myself "Now why didn't he.." But Eason once again produces a great story while tying up all & any loose strings.
The narrator wasn't the worst I've heard. But she lacks that punch listeners know they can count on in Eason's writing. With another narrator this book may remain in my collection of "Eason audios"..every audio to date. As is..well, I'll let you decide.

Corny!!

I love when I get the opportunity to read or listen to a book that is not full of language that would make a Sailor blush or should be rated X from the explicit content. Unfortunately this book was the total extreme of the opposite. The the heroine was unrealistically independent (like a man) and the hero was as thoughtful as a women. I was totally grateful that they didn't hop into bed when all this danger surrounded them but it would have been more realistic for him to attempt to cross that invisible line and for her make that line clear by saying no. Good Christian guys are not totally safe from desires of the flesh and should be forgiven and strengthen through Christ when they fall short.
The bad guys in this story were first bumblers and then idiots which makes it hard to believe that they would be capable of grand scale fraud for any length of time. I'm sorry to say that this book was disappointing and I only finished it because I want to support Christian writers. I'm praying that Lynette Eason will start to write from a more realistic Christian perspective instead of the idealistic Christian perspective.

This was Okay

I did not realize that this was part of harlequin. The narrator was a little clipped and choppy. Wasn’t crazy about her inflections. Story was okay.

A Silent Terror

I always like Lynette Eason's books. She keeps you guessing until the end and makes it hard to put the book down.
