Grace Callahan is a psychologist who gets wrapped up in the murder of one of her clients. Nate Quinn is a friend of Grace’s who works for the police department. He has been on leave because of a bombing that killed several police officers, including his old partner, three months before the events in this book. The two main characters were friends in college and lost touch with each other until now. Nathan doesn’t want Grace involved. Grace, however, is connected to the case because of her dead client, who was mixed up with the wrong people. Both have to help solve the murder.

Overall, it’s a good read. Readers will enjoy getting roped into the mystery and the twists and turns that come with it. If you like Christian crime with a romantic subplot, this book is for you.


Rating (1 to 5):

4.5 stars

Suggested Audience:

New Adult/ Adult

Christian Impact:

There isn’t much of a Christian impact. There are themes of Christianity laced throughout the book, but it’s not being shoved down your throat. We see Nathan reach out to God in a time of weakness.

Other Notes:

It took a little bit to really get into reading it, but the pacing is very well done. You hit the ground running from page one. There are parts where it’s a little cheesy, whether with the Christian theme, the romance, or otherwise.  I’m not a big fan of overly cheesy romance, but it was tasteful. It’s a very good book and is worth the read.
