My rating: 3.5 Stars
My opinion: OK, I must admit that I am a huge fan of Ms. Coble's Mercy Falls series. There is almost a magic to it that sucks me in immediately with each book that leads me to finish them almost in one sitting and I can't wait for the new ones to come out. To satisfy my craving until new releases, I decided to take a look at some of her "more modern" books.
Although, in my opinion, this book has the Colleen Coble seal of quality writing, it doesn't have that warm to the tips of the toes, magical feeling that her historical based novels have. This seemed to be much more "romance" based.
One of the things that I love most about Colleen Coble's books, is that although she is considered a Christian novelist, her novels are NEVER preachy. I feel like I am reading a "clean" piece of literature.
