    This was really a good book

    I got this after seeing about the main character working in a nursing home, and I do too, so I bought it on that alone. I was so into this book, it really is a fascinating and interesting read. I loved the shocking ending.

    Enjoyed the story very much

    I truly enjoyed the story and romance in this book. After reading all of the customers comments/reviews I decided to purchase it. I was surprised at the "scathing denigrating" review by one customer. So I went with the other comments and took a chance-and I was glad that I did. The story was clean and pure and had a good message of morality involved. It was fast moving and never boring, and I thought the MC was a strong classy woman with brains and spirit. It wasn't overdone or underdone in style or format-it was just right. I really liked it. When I buy books and see one or two "bad reviews" which are in the minority I always feel "sad" when reviewers "bash the authors" - that doesn't help the readers. A simple "yes I liked it- or no I it wasn't my cup of tea will suffice" anything longer-please put it in your own book!

    Highly entertaining bood

    I really enjoyed the entire book from start to finish. It held my interest, it was intensely surprising page after page. I thought it would be strictly a chick book-and was totally surprised to see that I found it to be non gender based. Anyone could enjoy this if you like suspense and twists with surprise endings. Nice job swanson.

    Phenomenal Book - Should be on the best sellers list!

    This is so frustrating to me as a reader, when I find such a phenomenal book with an amazing plot, twists turns and surprises. I loved all of the characters, especially the MC's - Dominique and Sam! If you love adventure, mystery, good characters versus evil characters, and shocking surprises throughout, this is the book for you. It is not gender directed, either man or woman will love it. It has a manly character guys can relate to, and a beautiful strong heroine women would love to be! Since I purchased this, I bought her other books too, she really is a fantastic author. Oh, and the best part, "no filth" just plain great action. Beautiful and smart and sassy relationship with Sam and Dominique... FIVE Stars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Shocked by other reviews

    I picked up this book based on the 5 star glowing reviews by other readers. I like a good adventure. I like a good romance. I like a godly book. But most of all, I like a well written book. This was none of the above. The grammar was atrocious. It took me forever to get into it b/c it would skip from first person to third person and made absolutely no sense. I am not talking differing perspectives; i'm talking blatant disregard for basic writing principles. The dialog was horrible. The style elementary. The story dreadful. It may rank as as the worst book I've ever read. There are far better moral Christian writers out there. Awful!

    One of the better books I have read in a long time

    This was a cool book in all areas, romance, adventure, stuff that you didn't see coming, and a huge surprise that made me go "wow!" I really loved it, one of my best books I have read in a long time. Going to check out if this author has more books.

    Such a great book

    This book was immediately interesting, I couldn't begin to even tell you the plot, how many things happened and so many twists and surprises. It was really good. An unusual plot line too. I read others saying it should be a movie - it should.

    WOW-I didn't want this book to end-I beyond loved it.

    All I know is I took a chance on an unknown after reading the fabulous reviews and seeing that the Author published with Thomas Nelson, and solely based on that,I purchased this novel. WOW-This book went beyond my expectations! It was magical, romantic, adventurous- I literally learned the meaning of "page turner" with this book. Phenomenal, I hear they are considering making this a movie of the week, and IF those rumors are true,I will record it,and watch it over and over again. As for now-I have an afterglow of "wow" from reading it. It will not disappoint. Highly recommend it. I recommend Angelina Jolie for the Main Character!

    OMG - I LOVED LOVED LOVED LOVED LOVED LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This was so good! It was very unusual and not your typical romantic mystery novels! It was so good -held surprises and twists and turns. So good, I cannot even begin to do it justice. This author wrote a fantastic book, and I just got her newest book, "The Inner Office of Samantha Evans" - I read it in ONE DAY - and it will become a series. I hope so! I love this author, brava - keep them coming and may you become as famous as Daniell Steel and Nora Roberts!

    good book with action and morals and scruples

    Very good book about a good woman filled with love for God and how she helps so many around her. Then the evil versus goodness comes along and all kinds of things happen, twists and surprises. Iloved it. Romance, love, hate, action, twists and so many good things in this book. Iloved it, and I love that the main person Dominique is a Christian who is filled with love for God. Good story. Powerful and well written!

    this was such a cool book with a lot of surprises to boot

    I really liked this novel, it was an instant classic to me. It had an old time feel with a lot of action, mystery and a gorgeous chick with brains who has scruples of women from years past, and all the stuff that happens, with surprises and things that I never saw coming, it was really a great book. I will recommend this to everyone I know. I think she has another one coming out soon, "the inner office of samantha evans" i have to buy that one too, she is a really good writer.

    This was such a good book-didn't want it to end!

    I loved this book and I am going to buy all of this Author's books in the future. Her style of writing made me feel like I was in "the book" and with the characters! So easy to read, so thrilling, and the romance between the heroine and the wise guy, charming and intense. Very surprised, my friend told me to get it she has all of this author's other books, and she loved her from the start, so she got me hooked. I cannot wait to buy her next book, "The Inner Office of Samantha Evans" sounds like a great name for a great book! Great book for a birthday present or for whatever. I was so surprised at the end, never saw certain things coming, I don't want to spoil it for others, but there are a lot of twists, and I never guessed one! Good Job CD! Oops, I made a mistake I wanted it to be FIVE STAR RATING but it turned into a FOUR?? This is a five star book!! Please see my detailed review. LOVED IT~

    My Girlfriend made me read it - Surprise I LOVED IT!

    My girlfriend made me read this book because she loved it so much, especially how sassy and classy the heroine was. I was so friggin surprised that I loved it! I thought it was strictly a "chick book" but it has entertainment value and action and suspense that any guy would love. I recommend it, if your girl gives it to you to read, READ IT! Wow, I will never judge a book by its cover again! LOL.

    This was a very good book with a lot of sentimental and cerebral

    This was a very good book with a lot of sentimental and cerebral internal dialogue. Clean, interesting, and romantic. A story about faith, morals and scruples, something this world is severly lacking today. This is for all of those who wish to read a book without filth, sex and debauchery overall. I highly recommend it to all of my friends, and bought it for my mom who loved it also! Nicely done. Going to buy her new book, FIVE HEARTS next.

    A surprisingly good read. This story held my attention and didn't let it wander. At no point in time, did this story drag.
    The characters, especially the heroine, was strong and I loved she was Christian. This book was clean, entertaining, and filled my heart and soul with a good feeling! Thanks!

    Read it in one day - phenomenal book

    This is an excellent book and one of which shocked me throughout. Adventurous, mystery element to it, and great style of writing (don't want to give it away, but the author does something unique in her writing I haven't seen before!) Characters were interesting and never dull, and I couldn't put it down, as cliche as this sounds, "It was a true page turner" and I never knew what was coming next. Not too sappy, but romance sprinkled in with just the right touch, realistic like events, and really heart warming moments throughout- I laughed with the two main characters,and their witty dialogue battling. LOVED IT - going to lend it to all of my friends! Never saw the end coming! Totally blew me away in complete and utter surprise! LOVED IT!
