This will be a favorite in 2012 for me!

This wasn't the first novel I've read by Margaret, but it is the first I've read in several years. I'm so glad I read this book. I found myself riveted to the story line and the characters. The tension was perfectly executed, in my opinion, because I couldn't stand it until I got to the end. But more than that, the ride compelled me to think about motivations and schemes and who could be behind everything. The fact that evil was so close to a number of main characters had me practically biting my nails at times. The faith element was balanced and clearly present without being too heavy handed. The progression of their spiritual journeys seemed natural to the characters' lives.

I loved the romantic thread in the story and found it to be warm enough to be yummy for romance lovers without taking away from the tension of the suspense portion of the story. I loved the hero and how he finally opened his heart and had to face his fears. I even liked how the author made a few of the "bad guys" seem like regular people at times. She made them seem more human, while still being dark in their nefarious intentions. They still did wrong, but I loved that they weren't one-dimensional and flat.

The heroine's mission to save children pulled into sexual slavery by predators was admirable, as was the hero's desire to fight for the same cause. The author writing about some of the miserable situations the girls living at Beacon of Hope suffered prior to their rescue in the story made me realize how more people need to step up and help rescue these children. I commend Margaret for opening my eyes to this scourge on society and writing about it.

When netgalley gives you ppl this book for free for your honest and unbiased opinion, i really dont think they expect you to give away the entire book. When you do that you turn away other readers from buying the book. A review is simply to tell if you liked the book or not, not to tell every single thing that happens. That is a dissertation, a book report. Pkease take it to a blog site if you want to dissect the book. Stop ruining the book for other readers here. It is rude and very inconsiderate. Now you have ruined for those of us who would have liked to have read it for ourselves, but why read it? You told us everything that happens.

    It was hard to put down. The story dealt with situations that are real today, unfortunately. I will be reading more of Margaret Daley's writings.

    Enjoyable

    Would rather be off in a quiet corner finishing this story, but life demands time too. With 80 pages to go, can't wait to read the outcome.

    This book wasn't what I was expecting, I don't really like romance mysteries, and this really wasn't. It's really different and interesting, and comes out different than I expected. Good read and one you might not want to miss.

    I recommend this!

    Very insightful. Interesting and timely plot. Moved smoothly. Well written. Would interest religious readers, or general fiction lovers. Yes, I would read other books by this author. Would make a very intense discussion book.

    Nice, hopeful story about a difficult and ugly subject. Some characters are not fleshed out as well as I would like, but all in all a well written book.
