‘Was God hugging her? Why would He want to? She’d let Him down.’

I am a huge fan of this author. All her books sit on my shelves, many of them read more than once. She is great at suspense and sometimes has a great dry wit. The idioms situation in this book was so funny. This book reads like Patch put her heart into it. There was so much to love. My favorite genre is suspense and this one ticks all the boxes. Great characters, really good plot, plenty of suspects, loads of danger. I was in from the very first page. I love it when that happens. Purely love it.

Here we have two flawed people, both living under self-imposed guilt from situations in their past. Situations that were truly not their fault, but that’s how minds work. Will they put down the heavy burden of guilt they’ve carried so long and allow God to lift it from their backs? Because that’s what we all tend to do, isn’t it? Not drop something when Christ has freed us from it?

Patch’s hero here, Rhett, is her best since Wilder Flynn in an earlier book. Well, they are kinda tied for greatest hero in my book. (Pun intended) The connection between Rhett and Poppy was nearly tangible. And I don’t mean just a romantic connection. There is a soul deep connection here and it is very well done.

Seriously this book truly did it for me. I loved it so much. There is super great suspense, a wonderful plot that I did not figure out at all, and a surprise element thrown in that caused me many smiles. Patch is at her best here. Well done!

My thanks to the publisher and author for a complimentary copy of this book. I was not pressured to leave a positive review and the opinion here is my own.
