About the book:

     Two years after the plane crash that killed her fiancé, Amy Silver has fallen for his best friend, artist Michael Stratton. When a local reporter claims the small aircraft may have been sabotaged, it reopens Amy’s grief.

     Anonymous warnings and threats are Amy’s only proof that the tragedy was deliberate, and she has nowhere to turn. The authorities don’t believe her, God is not an option, and Michael’s protection is starting to feel like a cage.

     How will Amy find the truth?

     Michael’s feisty great-aunt and the dead man’s university-student sister are the other key players in this Christian romantic suspense set in Nova Scotia, Canada.

My review:

     This is a wonderful romantic suspense novel.

     I sympathized with Amy Silver from the moment I met her. She is such a well developed character carrying so much hurt and confusion. She has chronic pain to deal with on a daily basis. Along with that is heartache both from the accident she lost her fiancé in and from her childhood. She wants desperately to truly belong and know that she is loved for who she is. Part of what prevents this is her family background.

     The first half of the book focuses mainly on this search while giving glimpses into the mystery that slowly builds. Then in the second half the suspense builds as does the danger that Amy and the two people she lives with are in. There are a number of twists about who can be trusted and who can’t.

     The story really kept my interest throughout. I have never read anything by this author before. After reading this book I will be looking for her other stories.

     I’m giving this book a rating of 5 stars and recommending it.

     I do want to state clearly for those that don’t like to read books that “preach” to them. There is a lot of discussion about the grace of God and His love. The gospel message is spelled out very clearly. It is very appropriate within the type of story this is and very tastefully done in my opinion.
