    Riveting Read!

    What a great read! The Surrogate kept me up way too late reading. Mackel has a way with cranking up the suspense. I hope she has another book coming out soon.

    This is a real page turner

    The Surrogate is a very engrossing novel with intriguing characters and a strong plot. Unlike most suspense novels, this one actually kept me guessing and I loved the twists and turns along the way. This story was not predictable and sometimes it even raised the hair on the back of my neck. So if you are looking for a story that will give you the willies and keep you on the edge of your seat praying for the safety of the characters, then you must read this book. Also, she has some really great thugs for characters and their points of view are creepy, but believable.

    Surrogate: A Novel

    What a page turner! Great character development and faith elements as well. I loved the mountain settings, the music, and the progression of events. So exciting but also sensitive. I recommend this highly.

    Surrogate: A Novel

    But that was a good thing. I could not put this book down. Once I got into it, I HAD to see how it turned out. The plot has so many twists, I loved the surprises, even when they scared me. But the writer does such a good job with the science, the legal stuff, and the spiritual stuff, that this is more than just a thriller. It's got some depth to it. I hated when it was over but it's a good thing it was or I wouldn't have gotten any work done. Cool stuff.

    Great Read

    'The Surrogate' is a wonderful book! The characters are interesting and believable, the plot is fast-moving and suspenseful. In addition to the usual elements of a thriller, in this book, Kathryn Mackel provides a thought-provoking look at how the faith of the main characters comes into play as they cope with personal pain and frightening circumstances. Really enjoyable!
