My Thoughts

This series has been fantastic, and this final novel is a perfect ending!  You do not have to read the stories in order, as this novel stands well on its own, but as someone who devoured the first three books in the series, it was great to return to Natchez, Mississippi.  I really like Madison and Clayton individually and I really loved them together.  Their relationship is not forced but develops naturally and realistically.  The suspense is fantastic!  The action starts immediately, continues without lagging in the middle, and finishes strong.  I had a hard time putting the book down!  I also thought the author did a great job of incorporating spiritual truths among the pages.  I greatly enjoyed the story and highly recommend this book!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Revell Publishing.  Opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.

Thanks for stopping by!
