MY THOUGHTS -
Very good on-the-edge-of-your-seat suspense! This was my first  "Love Inspired Suspense" and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked it.

This story was mainly about being a witness for a very important trial, waiting to testify, witness protection with a little bit of gang action thrown in there! Oh and did I forget to mention the romance! Ooo what fun! And good clean fun too I must add. I love books about witness protection and this was a good one. I liked that the romance wasn't the main theme of the book - the suspense was. The author did a real nice job of combining the two.

The character development was very good. Great characters with believable personalities. I really liked both Sydney and Max and they were great together.
The author also did a nice job of describing everything. I really felt like I could picture everything clearly, even when things started to heat up and got crazy - she never lost me. 

This was a good clean, fast paced, action packed romance. A couple of reviewers thought it was too Christian, and bordering on preachy, but I didn't feel that at all! I guess I am used to reading Christian books. But - FYI - this is a christian book! LOL So if that is not your thing...
To me it was just good clean fun, which I love!

I loved this new-to-me author's writing and would definitely read more from her!

Thank you  Rachel Dylan for sending me your book for my honest review!
