To See the Sun by Peggy Blann Phifer
Erin Macintyre no only looses her husband, she’s about the have a baby, which will now be a fatherless baby. Erin thought she knew her husband Justin very well, and sure didn’t think he was keeping any secrets from her, but when the notes and phone calls started coming, making it obvious that someone was following her, she wasn’t sure anymore. And to make matters worse, old flame and PI Clay Buchanan pops in on the investigation. Turns out Clay had been talking to Justin all of these years that Erin thought he was in hiding, so Clay knew more than Erin ever dreamed. Erin was thrown into having to work with Clay, and even trust him to do what was best.
With a debut author, you never know what you are in for when reading their first book, and I can say that Peggy Blann Phifer stormed the Christian fiction world with a novel that will be talked about for a long time to come. With characters that grab your heart from the beginning and hang on until the very last page, and with twists and turns that will keep you hanging on to the edge of your seat, “To See the Sun” takes you on a whirlwind journey of a lifetime.
Losing Justin was so sad for Erin, especially since they were so much in love, and expecting their first child after so many years, and then finding out he had been keeping secrets, well Erin didn’t know what to think. She still didn’t want to trust Clay though, even though the letter from Justin told her too. And of course Clay was still in love with Erin and would do anything to win her back, but he had to take it easy, she wasn’t ready to hear this. As this story unfolds, it seems that people come out the woodwork that’s had a part in Justin and Erin’s lives for years. I was beginning to wonderful if anyone could be trusted! And as for Clay, well I was cheering for he and Erin to get together, even though that was the last thing on Erin’s mind.
Well I could tell a lot more, but I won’t. You really need to run and grab a copy of Peggy’s book and read it for yourself. You will be very happy you did!

For a debut novel, this is one good book! Combining just the right amount of seriousness and tension with some tangible humor, To See the Sun gives you everything you expect in a whodunit, plus a little more. My attention was secured from the first page on. The opener is a humdinger! Shock is all I can say I felt, and then great sadness. I knew I was going to be spending some late nights with these characters. A young widow expecting a baby, an ex-boyfriend who is still in love, a psycho killer, and some very supportive secondary characters are spectacularly written and just seemed to vault right off the page. I'm always saying how visual I am and that covers are the first to pique my interest in a book. This entire book was a pleasant experience for me. I love the font that was chosen for the title and chapter headings, the print was easy enough to read without my glasses, and the story leaves me looking forward to the next in this anticipated series! I was provided a copy by the author for review purposes. A positive review was not required, just my opinion of the book. No monetary compensation was received.Was this review helpful?

From the very first page of this story the author grabs you and never lets go. Such a happy opening - a day unlike any other day. So much to celebrate. A wonderful accomplishment at work, his wife's pregnancy - their first child - Justin Macintyre has many blessings to be thankful for. Unfortunately, very soon we are reminded that our life is but a vapor, here only for a moment. If this was a movie, some telltale foreboding would have warned us that it wasn't meant to be. Instead of a celebration, we share Erin's shock at the loss of her husband. Her pain oozes from the pages as she struggles through her grief. What a masterful artist Ms. Phifer is as she weaves past present and future together.
The twists and turns this story takes, the heartfelt emotions - it's all wound together in a glorious way. What a wonderful story! You really don't want to miss this one!

Superb! is one word of many that can be used to describe the debut novel of Peggy Blann Phifer. "To See the Sun" is an intricately woven story which encompasses everything from romance to humor with enough suspense to have the reader sitting at the edge of their seats until the last page is read. One will have a hard time putting the book aside!
Readers will be drawn into Erin MacIntyre's life so completely they will feel as if they are standing alongside her and those she loves. With the turn of each page, you'll marvel at each circumstance she must endure and yet survive and then begin to realize just how she does so.
The events of Erin's life leads her to re-awaken her faith and trust in God. As these grow stronger, she learns to listen to His whispers of guidance. Erin finally comes to know what true forgiveness is and how it impacts not only her life but of those around her.
I for one will be anxiously awaiting for Volumes Two and Three to be published

Peggy Blann Phifer did a knockout job crafting To See the Sun. After the loss of her parents and her husband, Erin MacIntyre expects her life to calm down. Instead it grows more intense as she faces having a baby and raising it alone. Then two stalkers make it clear that her life is in danger. Although her faith waivers, she keeps talking to God. I stayed up several nights unable to put the book down, wondering whether Erin would accept help from an x-boyfriend or if she would be the victim of another murder. Great characters, suspense and yes, romance. I can hardly wait to read the next in the series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
