Good Christian Romantic Thriller

I wasn't aware beforehand that this was a Christian story but it didn't detract from my enjoyment of it. Sometimes it's just nice to listen to romantic suspense without the language and graphic sex. The religious aspect wasn't so overpowering that I was offended or put off. I enjoyed the story's twists and turns, as well as the suspense and romance elements. Alex and Royce were very likeable characters and deserved to find happiness. Leonor A. Woodworth as narrator portrayed the characters and story well, giving a great performance. Out of the Darkness was a very pleasurable listening experience and I would recommend it.

Well written - very enjoyable

Talk about being pulled into a story immediately. Wow. Bottom line this was just a really good book. It pulled me in immediately and held my complete attention from start to finish. It's well written story that has a really good storyline with plenty of suspense, intrigue and mystery, great characters and a little clean romance. It's a very entertaining, engaging and enjoyable story that is worth your time.

There are people who don't want any kind of religion in their stories, even if it’s just saying grace before they eat. So in that regard I guess I would consider this is a Christian mystery in some ways. Both main characters are religious. It is not preachy and it did not detract or interfere with the story for me in any way.

Alex and Royce were both great characters. Both were immediately likable and you couldn't help but root for them from the start.

Leonore A Woodsworth does a fantastic job with the narration. She has a pleasant voice that is easy to listen to for long periods of time. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace. Good character voices. Both male and female. There is not a lot of difference between her male and female voices, just a slight change in tone. It's enough to distinguish the characters though. Her narration pulls you right into the story and brings the characters, their emotions and the story to life. Very enjoyable

Good Christian Mystery

I was pulled into this book from the very beginning. I did not know it was a christian mystery when I started listening to it. That said, I did not find anything objectionable. The story was well written with some unexpected twists. The author did a very good job with the imagery and suspense. I thought the narrator did a good performance with the emotions and tension in the story. I did not always hear distinguishable characters in this story though. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I would continue to listen to more books by this author and narrator in the future.

Out of the Darkness

Anne Patrick has another great romantic mystery.

Alex loved her work for the FBI, but a serial killer has stolen that from her.
As Alex tries to disappear from coworkers and the situation, she hitches a ride with a truck driver and finds a job as his office assistant. Living a normal life appeals to Alex, especially if it includes Royce and his son.
Royce has his own past and doesn't push Alex about hers, but quietly supports her as she works through her nightmares but her nightmare is coming after her, pulling her from her safe seclusion.

Anne Patrick has a way of creating a story with the right balance of suspense and romance without offensive language.

Lenor Woodworth has a smooth voice that draws you in with each character she portrays.

Out Of Darkness

Out of the Darkness
: Anne Patrick

FBI profiler Alex Michaels is on the run from a serial killer while still trying to catch him. A clean Christian suspense novel with romance in the works. Faith is challenged, trust needs to be re-gained and possibly a new life to begin. A very good book.


The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed.Leonor A Woodworth gives a fine performance.

Surprise - Religion!

I'm not a huge fan of religious dogma in my thrillers and would have been much more open to it had I been warned in the description. This isn't a 'light' Christian thriller, either - one of the main threads throughout is the faith of the protagonist. Now, I am much more interested in her attempts to avoid the serial killer, and even her budding romance, than I am about her faith. In fact, that interests me not at all.

That said, I was able to enjoy the story and thought it was fairly well written. Woodworth delivers a fantastic performance in the narration - it might be worth a listen just for that. Otherwise, I wouldn't recommend this book to my friends because of the heavy religious aspect.

Thoroughly Enjoyable

I got this story via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. This story grabbed me at the opening, took me on an extraordinary journey through the mind of a killer and the people who were determined to find him and get justice with a lot of good stuff in between. It is definitely not one to start listening to at night unless you are into thrillers. The suspense is there and just when you think you know what is coming next you get something else. Well worth the listen. Loved the idea that you can tell a good story without sex and strong language and it keeps the listener entertained. The narrator really made the story come to life.
