This was a very well written book with solid suspense. it kept me reading till the end because I feared for the characters in danger. Kate was a very believable character, fighting for acceptance from her family while doing what she believes is the right thing. Wyatt was a little less believable a character but I still really liked him. The fact that his daughter was soon made a target is a pretty common theme in this type of suspense novel, but all in all made for a good read.

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 I read reviews I get so tired of reading what the entire book is about. Why buy the book. I won't do that. I will say this was a very satisfying read. My mother reads a lot of her books because she writes alot of shirt easy read books. I like detail and books that are deep with characters and subject matter. This book was probably the best I have read from her. Every character was easy to relate with and felt lije real people. I was truly engrossed with the whole book. Read it. You won't be disappointed.

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.

Wyatt Sheridan has been working on a team to expose a child prostitution ring. When Wyatt and Kate meet they discover that they have the same goal: to help the girls. Rose is one of the girls that lives in Beacon of Hope. On a night she gets a phone call from Lilly - a girl who is still working as a prostitute. She needs help and Rose is taking Kate’s van to go to try to free Lilly. But things don’t go like she hoped and soon Rose is captured. Wyatt comes to work on the case to find Rose. Kate and Wyatt often meet to talk things through. Wyatt didn’t expect to start feeling something for Kate. His wife was murdered 9 years ago and he never thought about searching for a new love in his life. His mother lives with him to take care of his 14 year old daughter Maddie. Maddie is trying to find her own way in life and gets into trouble. Wyatt’s mother is widowed and seeing a new boyfriend. Can the man be trusted? Join Wyatt and Kate in their search for Rose. Will they find her again? And can they expose the prostitution ring? Margaret Daley writes a story that is worth reading! She keeps the suspense high and the plot is well done. *Thanks to Abingdon Press and NetGalley for providing me a free eBook for review.*

When a teenager goes missing from the Beacon of Hope School, Texas Ranger Wyatt Sheridan and school director Kate Winslow are forced into a dangerous struggle against a human trafficking organization. But the battle brings dire consequences as Wyatt's daughter is terrorized and Kate is kidnapped. Now it's personal, and Wyatt finds both his faith and investigative skills challenged as he fights to discover the mastermind behind the ring before evil destroys everyone he loves. ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** Margaret Daley has written another thought-provoking book! She has given such depth to the characters that they become the reader's friends, too. I not only 'prayed-on' the teenage girls and their recovery, but also Kate's relationship with her parents. She has written a book that introduces the reader to the forced adolescent/teen girl prostitution rings, and also the difficulty for them to break free from this dire situation. Her sensitivity to the problem of human trafficking here in America makes this a great way to open dialogue with your own teenage daughter. Read it first, and if you feel it is appropriate for your daughter, let her read it... then TALK about it and what if means to you and her! I look forward to reading Margaret Daley's Men of the Texas Rangers series! I received a complimentary copy of Saving Hope from Abingdon Press from NetGalley for my honest review.

I loved reading this book. There were some very important topics covered. I will make sure my preteen daughter reads it. I also like the discussion questions at the end. Even if you only think about the questions yourself, this was an elightening book. The characters were well developed and the story was believable. Prayer is used in the story along with faith and forgiveness. Repentance and the Holy Ghost are not mentioned specifically but are eluded to especially regarding inspiration received by characters and even feelings of warning and hearing the still small voice. I would consider this an uplifting book even though it was suspenseful and about some of the most awful things some humans choose to do with their free agency.

This book is heart wrenching! It pulls you into the story with the page. It is extrememly well written with great characters and a well developed plot. I didn't get bored or feel like parts of the story were interfering with other parts. It was an excellent mix of suspense, romance, and hope. The Christian message is not shoved in your face like some books do, but it is strong enough to get the point. With God, nothing is impossible. In God, there is hope. I cannot wait to read the next book!

I heard about human trafficking in church not to long ago, and now reading about it again, even in fiction, I hope it helps others to look a little more closely at what is going on around them and pay attention. I was definitely on the edge of my seat through the whole book. Great read of a tough subject. I applaud Margaret Daley for putting it out there.

I enjoyed this book. It has action, good clean romance, and kept me entertained. It explored a darker side of society and a lawman trying to change things. A woman trying to help the innocent lives tangled in greed and sin. Very good read!

Good book.... main man wasnt very masculine and conversations were a little wordly and unrealistic.

Average. I did not like the ending. A little too preachy for my taste.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
I liked the book, but it wasn't much of a page turner for me until I got to the last forty pages. The religious aspect was handled with a light touch--just enough to let the reader know the heroine was a woman of deep faith. The mystery part of the book was good; the romance was nice but not very believable. They've known each other a week and had a half dozen kisses, and they are in love? It's like an older version of Nancy Drew.

Coming from a guy, I found this book to be too mushy and not really all that exciting. Nothing special here folks; move along.
DonnaWDW More than 1 year ago
This was a simple read, though it has some suspense, it does not keep you on the edge. It is a good family setting with the Texas Ranger spin and highlights how easily young teens can get themselves in trouble. If you are a parent of a teen girl it an eye opener on just how quickly things can happen.

Ok story, slow and predictable. All the references to god were just too much.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
This is just an average book. The theme was interesting and topical and the characters had potential. I found the ending easy to guess but I do read alot and look for the twists in the plots. The sentence structure and the writing style made me feel like this was a fairly inexperienced writer and not an "award winning" author. Will not be following this series

This is more suited for what women typically like (more emphasis on feelings than complicated plot/action. I read it because it was free. Don't think I'll get any more from this series of books. There are a number of Christian religious comments. So if you don't like that, you probably won't like the book.

This was a weird mixture of romance novel and sex crime. There wasn't any graphic details which I appreciated. It was an easy read. Straightforward. Could almost guess the ending.

I just finished reading this in one sitting and loved this book. It had characters that felt authentic and the topic was such that I felt was very important to opening the eyes of the general public. Overall, as my first book by this author, I was very pleased and will keep an eye out for others as I loved it. ***On another note, please keep your reviews to your opinions and not the plot spoilers many are doing! Thanks so much! ***
