Three – Ted Dekker

I’ve had mixed feelings about Dekker’s work. Showdown was a little weird to me, but this book was AMAZING. I became so engorssed with the characters and trying to figure out what would happen. I never dreamed it would really end the way it did. You end up feeling Kevin’s pain and confusion.

It also reminded me how important it is to love my kids.

Fair Warning – Hannah Alexander

I love vacation!! Because I usually go to San Diego which means SeaWorld and Legoland which means a chance to read! Even though it was only 2 1/2 days I had the chance to finish up 1 book and read another. One of the books was Hannah Alexander’s “Fair Warning.” It appears to be the 3rd book in a series you didn’t feel like you were jumping into the middle of a story and didn’t know what was going on. Hannah Alexander writes good characters that have a lot of personality. The story moved at a good pace and had a great twist. The only problem I had with the story was possible editor’s miss. At one point in the story our heroine’s car is wrecked, yet shortly lately reference is made to seeing it in the parking lot. Not sure there was enough time to get it repaired… but I can overlook it for the sake of a good storyline.

Steal Away by Linda Hall

Excellent story. Most stories your “hero” is single so that you have the “love” interest but in this story Teri is newly married, with a series of twist that comes with marriage. The story line is interesting with some nice twists. I did figure out “the secret” before the end but it was still nice wrap up to the story.

I’m looking forward to the next story.
