I’m still shocked that I was one of the contest winners that won a copy of this book. If it weren’t for this contest, I probably would not have bothered with purchasing a copy of my own. I’m really happy I did because I was not disappointed.
It’s considered a contemporary romance novel, but I honestly find that misleading. There is romance, but that is not the main focus. It’s more of a mystery, thriller, and suspense novel. Amber Talbot is your typical good girl that doesn’t get into trouble, but she has a secret that somebody wants her dead. She becomes that target of a car bomb and a home invasion. Now imagine this happening, but also tying her ex-fiance who just so happens to be the police detective assigned to her case. What happened to her eleven years ago caused her to walk away from Patrick without any kind of explanation. He wasn’t able to protect her then, but now he makes it his goal to do just that.
Amber’s story is so intense that it’ll keep you wanting to flip through the pages until you find out what’s next. I couldn’t put it down. The fun of the book is that you don’t know who it is that is actually the bad until it is finally revealed. It’s also a story of faith and trusting God, something that Amber truly struggles with, especially since she still feels the shame and guilt from what happened in her past. Can Patrick learn to love again or will what happened with Amber damage him forever? You’ll just have to read it yourself to find out!
