I received this book for free from the publisher and Netgalley to provide an honest and non-biased review. This is the first book that I have read of Kathleen Y'Barbo so I was not sure what to expect when I started reading this historical christian fiction but figured by the synopsis I would give it a try. Kathleen did a great job of developing the characters so you felt like you really knew the characters. In addition, at times this felt more like a not only a christian romance but also mystery. It kept me interested from the start of the story until the very end.
There were a couple parts in the story that I felt that were dragged out a little more than they needed to be and could have been shortened. However, she did a good of keeping you stumped on who the bad guys were in the story until the very end. As a reader I was very surprised by who the crook ended up being.
I think this book is a great mix of family, romance and mystery. If you like Christian fiction, romance and mystery than this is defiantly a book to read.
I am very interested in reading more from this author and more books in this series.
