My Thoughts:

I am a recent fan of Colleen Coble. I enjoyed reading this one, as she is a wonderful storyteller. However, I did find myself cringing sometimes, because there was a LOT of “telling” and not “showing”. This type of writing always feels very amateur to me, and normally I do not push through a book when the writing is like that.

That being said, I gave the book some grace because of the thriller type scenes that really drew me in. I’m sure that if you are a Colleen Coble fan, then this book will not disappoint!
