My Thoughts

I was so excited to finally get my hands on Luke “Preach” Davenport’s story!  It was great to read about familiar characters from the earlier stories, but it was wonderful to dive into Luke’s story, which I think stands well on its own.  I loved how the author incorporated faith into every aspect of the novel, truly making it a central part of how the characters thought and developed and grew.  The plot flowed well and was easily engaging, keeping my attention from beginning to end.  I liked the element of mystery in the story and the twists and turns kept me guessing.  The romance develops well and made me smile several times.  I loved this novel and highly recommend it!

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