I've read and really enjoyed a couple of books by this author in the past, and so I was really excited to read her Revell debut. I liked this book, but I was a tad disappointed that I didn't love it as much as I had hoped to. Willow and Austin were very good main characters, they were both very strong and admirable people.
Their individual back stories were very well written, and it was wonderful to see them each move forward learning to trust in God and leave behind the pain of the past. I liked Willow and Austin, but they didn't become favorite characters for me. Charlie, however, did become a favorite, I admired her determination and could totally relate to her deep love for horses!
There were a lot of very suspenseful scenes in this book (which I loved!)
During the first third of the book the pages seemed to fly and I couldn't stop reading, but after that the story seemed to get bogged down. It did pick up again about 150 pages from the end which was fabulous, but there was a big chunk in the middle that I struggled to get through, and found myself setting the book down without much desire to pick it up again, for this reason it took me a lot longer to read this book than I expected it would. I am a huge nature lover, and I think my favorite thing about this book was the ruggedly stunning backdrop of Wyoming, the surroundings were wonderfully described and made me feel as if I was there! I also love the cover of this book, and how it brings to life the foreboding feeling of a suspense book and depicts the gorgeous mountains and forests.
Overall, while I didn't absolutely love this book, I did still enjoy it and will most likely read the next book in the series.
Even though this wasn't a favorite for me, I do recommend it to fans of Christian romantic suspense.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. Which did not influence my review in any way, all thoughts and opinions are one hundred percent my own.
