Reviewed by Christian Sia for Readers' Favorite The Runaway Prophet by Michele Chynoweth is an inspiring story that will entertain and enlighten readers. What happens when a man tries to run away from his calling to embrace the path of justice? Rory Justice is a divorced man who only cares about doing his job and living a normal, upright life. Upon his deathbed, his father, an ex-FBI agent, makes an unusual request, asking Rory to deliver a package to a sheriff in Las Vegas. He finds out the letter is a warning about the horrific plan of terrorists to destroy the entire city. Instead of delivering the letter as expected, Rory decides to take the easy way out and post it. What happens when he tries to run away is what will blow the reader’s mind. Michele Chynoweth is a master at creating powerful conflicts and the kind of suspense that makes the read even more gripping. The use of a definite deadline to solve the problem and stop the bad guys creates a lot of excitement and anticipation, and readers will want to know if the heroes can succeed before time runs out. The Runaway Prophet is well-written and the plot is more than perfect. You’ll never know what will happen next, no matter how hard you guess. The transformation that takes place in Rory, from being an indifferent man to working with a team of investigators and law officers, and most importantly to being capable of falling in love with Susan McAfree, is interesting. The author knows how to inspire readers by writing about her religious convictions without being pushy and boring. This is a book I’ll recommend to everyone looking for something thrilling and thought-provoking.

I really enjoyed reading Michele Chynoweth story, The Runaway Prophet. The characters were very well developed and reflective of today's times while embracing biblical stories references (Jonah) to symbolically demonstrate similar conflicts, choices, and personal struggles. It's a quick read, that is enjoyable and portrays an uplifting message of God's compassion. Looking forward to reading Michele's next book. Hope it's already being written.

The Runaway Prophet is a captivating book by Michele Chynoweth. Although it's based on the familiar story of Jonah and the big fish, this tale is one that is full of suspense and fast-paced action. Rory, a divorced businessman has an absolute hatred for Las Vegas and his dad's dying instructions were for Rory to go there with a message of doom for the city. The characters are believable and strong and yet with their faults and foibles. The author gives readers a well-written yet gritty tale that deals with very real and raw issues of human life. And throughout the dangers and tension of the story runs a solid message of a faith in God that brings change and second chances. An enjoyable read. I received a complimentary copy of the book from the author. I was not required to write a review and the opinions are my own.

Wow!! Michele Chynoweth has done it a third time now!! “The Runaway Prophet” is entirely different from the “The Faithful One” and “The Peace Maker.” I loved all three and had recommended them to a lot of my friends and family. “The Runaway Prophet” is definitely a book that you can get really involved with because it takes place in today’s time and with today’s current events. I found myself saying “Oh my God” I never knew that about Las Vegas and a lot of other things that Michele includes in the book. I also really like the way Michele integrates God’s word throughout the book where most of us can relate and understand. I am just so impressed with Michele’s knowledge and creativity in her book. “The Runaway Prophet” is a must read.
