I was absolutely drawn into the store from the very beginning of this book. It certainly helped that Sarah is a teacher–I am one, too. And she is a woman who has been physically, emotionally, and mentally abused. I can identify to a small degree. I never experienced what she did, but the potential was there. And when I read stories like this, I am reminded of what I escaped.
This story was extremely well-written, and she added elements of romance, mystery, and more into this book. I tend to think Mark is too good to be true, but then again, I guess guys like that do exist. I wish I could find one! I never felt this was sappy, but I would have appreciated more humor to break up the tension. The book is very heavy, and I was reminded that all of us have worth–even if people do not want to give you honor and respect. Don’t accept anything less from your relationships with others.
I was spurred on to read this book because I had to know what happened next and whether they caught the criminal. The chapters were short and always left you wanting to go to the next chapter. This a great read for adult women who want to read high action books with a touch of tender romance.
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
