From the beginning, Rachelle Christensen had me hooked. The characters and their actions are believable and real. I didn't want to put this one down, always wanting to see what was coming, how Aubree would deal with her troubles and who was causing all this trouble. I thought the interactions of the characters were life like and loved them in their honesty and imperfection. Oh and did I mention that there is a love story in the midst of all her trials? For me this book has it all. I will be putting this one on my book clubs "to read" list. Here's hoping for another fine novel from Rachelle Christensen very soon!
Back Cover of Book: When Aubree Stewart receives a mysterious phone call on her way to work, she doesn't know what to think. at first she assumes it's some kind of prank. But the call isn't a practical joke, and Aubree soon finds herself swept up in a world of danger, intrigue, and murder. With help from the FBI, Aubree races to protect herself and what's left of her family, but the one thing she forgets to protect is her own heart. Review: I must say WRONG NUMBER is one of the best "who-done-it" novels I've read in a long time. I thought the first couple of chapters seemed a bit stiff, however, but looking back, I realize Christensen was just winding up. Before I had time to grab hold of something solid, I was on the ride of a lifetime with no desire to turn back. I could NOT put this book down. In fact, I stayed up half the night to finish it. Wrong Number is a fast paced story filled with mystery, danger, romance and so many twists and turns, there's no way to figure out the bad guy until the very end. I'm usually pretty good at guessing who the real antagonist is in both books and movies, but each time I thought I had it figured out, another element was thrown in the mix and I was left guessing again. I highly recommend it.
I don't always enjoy mysteries because I'm too smart for them. Just kidding, I'm not too smart, I just think most writers don't write smart enough. In an effort to leave you clues, they lead you right to the solution, like bread crumbs along the forest path. But Ms. Christensen has a real knack for mysteries because Wrong Number kept me guessing right until the very end. I didn't feel the writing was as smooth as it could be: oftentimes it felt like the author was writing with a checklist: she saw that, smelled this, touched that, thought this. But despite that, the story propelled me onward. I had to keep reading, couldn't put the book down and lost sleep in an effort to figure out who the bad guys were. At the beginning, I thought I'd give this book three stars, but by the end I would have given it 4.5 if I could. The only thing that held me back from the five star rating is the somewhat pedantic writing. Despite that, the story is certainly worth picking up, just be sure you've got time to read! This is a fast paced who-done-it that is sure to keep you guessing--even if you are as smart as me. ;
Rachelle Christensen weaves a tale of intrigue, suspense, and romance that is sure to please readers of all genres. Aubree's story captured me from the very first page, and her struggles-both internal and external-kept me cheering for her until the very end. And did I mention that it's romantic too? Yeah. Great book.
"Wrong Number" is a romantic suspense novel with the suspense aspect taken to an art form. Although, I have to say that the romance is pretty good, too! Half the time your heart will feel warmed from the sweetness of the love story and the other half it'll thump with anxiety for the main character. Can we just say, "conspiracy"? Rachelle Christensen has done a great job on this book, and I highly recommend it! [Disclosure: Please note that I received a copy of this book for review from the author, whom I know. However, had I felt the book was not that good, I would have passed on the opportunity to post a review.]
