Not sure if I ll read this entire series, but did enjoy this one Couldn t guess who the culprit was Great story and enjoyed the ending
The moment I started reading the story I was hooked and thought I was going to love this book That wasn t the case While the story was good I had a strong feeling who was behind the troubles that kept happening, and I ended up being right, though I wasn t sure at the time why this person would do it I might continue reading this series, but it s not high on my list I will say that if you enjoy Christian suspense story, you should give this a read since it s currently free for the Kindle.3.5 star [...]

Mystery and romanceChristian romance not too preachy Hero and heroine work to strengthen their faith and overcome realistic trials dysfunctional families, PTSD, physical handicaps, low self esteem, etc As they work together to find out the truth behind a tragic incident involving his sister and her brother, love starts blooming between them Will the truth really set them free
Dramatic suspense throughout the bookWell written story line with interesting characters reacting off of each other It is difficult to figure out what will be happening next The plot was not difficult to follow however it was not easy to figure the next step I love the Christian testimony and the fact they were portrayed as being less than perfect.
Holds your interestWell written story We listen to a book a week and I m giving this a 5 star rating Well done.
Awesome storyline This book is amazing Loved it The twists and turns kept me riveted Adam and Karen are a very nice couple Looking forward to of these books
Good book want to read book 2
This is a gotta read.This was a most enjoyable read Good characters, great plot filled with suspense plus a happy ending What could you ask for
Solid read with good characters and a good romance and a not too heavyhanded Christian bent.
I found this sweet, funny and suspenseful.
Needs better editingGood read but several mess ups Female character has blue eyes but male character said they were green Uncle Seth but should have been uncle Adam Other then that story was good.
Great book Kept my interest from the very beginning Great example of being in a storm, trusting God and He shows the way out
This story was fast paced from beginning to end The characters were well developed and animated The author kept the story moving, never depending on minutia to lengthen it I just really enjoyed it.
This was an interesting story, but the idea of a brother, son, or friend breaking laws of the land, or laws of conscience to protect someone they care for didn t make since to me Maybe I am too logical, but it bothered me That alone made the story unsatisfying to me Otherwise the pacing and the storytelling was ok The story was too clean as far as sex is concerned I get that it is a Christian story, and that they are trying to save themselves but still, the natural emotions between love interest [...]
I really liked the story line a lot It had several twists that kept you guessing However, there were a lot of inconsistencies, too, and that bothered me a lot Karen hurt her knee pretty bad but it was only referred to when it was convenient for the story otherwise, there were times when she was supposedly running, climbing stairs, taking out garbage, going for walks, getting up from being pushed down when shot at, etc without any problem at all At one point Karen was able to easily take her boot [...]
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book This is the first Christian suspenseful novel I have read, and I have to admit that I was a little nervous up front There is some darkness to it and some difficult topics However I thought the author did a great job of keeping my interest and making sure to include God in the story Karen is trying to find out what happened to her brother that mysteriously died The police reports claim it was a hunting accident, but Karen and her dying mother feel otherwise [...]

The author hooked me with the first page and kept me interested so it was an enjoyable read with a lot of action and character development Unfortunately, there were some editorial problems like mixing up two characters names for example and some sentences that didn t make sense The characters were engaging and believable, but I felt that most of the secondary character men were a little too stereotyped as womanizers While the end was surprising, and the author did a good job of keeping us guessi [...]

This is the first book by author Lee Tobin McClain that I have read, but it won t be the last A Brother s Bond is a superb romantic suspense, with flawed and intriguing characters, danger around every curve literally , an innocent at risk, and high stakes all around The mountain setting is critical, and the mystery the heroine is trying to solve the same one the hero wants to conceal kept me turning the pages right to the end.The faith journey of the main characters is an integral part of the st [...]

This is the first book in the Sacred Bond Guardians Series and it definitely kicks off the series in a big way This picks up with some of the characters from this author s Sacred Bond Series and even this can be read as a standalone, I do recommend the initial series also This book follows the story of Kate, a woman trying to uncover the events behind her brother s death, and Adam, a disabled vet whose sister was a witness to the events but is suffering from traumatic shock The author has combin [...]

I was very pleasantly surprised by this free Christian romance e book Karen and Adam are thrown together in a mystery surrounding the death of Karen s brother and the rape of Adam s sister from years ago Their attraction grows steadily as the mystery continues to unfold I was very pleased with how the author gave the characters life and made you really root for them I will be frank, though there are a couple of scenes, one in particular, that focus on the growing physical attraction between them [...]
I can t even give an accurate review of this book The story might have been good, but the writing must have come from a new writer The thought that it s written by a seasoned author would be just wrong Love bloomed in just a few days, but it didn t flow There was constantly one person ticked at the other, hiding truths, no true chemistry, and not believable Adam s sister being a recluse for 8 years because she saw her boyfriend killed just didn t seem realistic She acted like she was raped and t [...]
