I really enjoy reading Chantal's Call. Traci paints the picture as you read with true to life characters and a story line that keeps you interested. I loved the intrigue that brought the cult story line to life with believable characters and wonderful descriptions of places and events that ring true in the south. I can't wait to see where they go from here.

Chantal's Call was a true page turner. The characters were easy to identify with and the storyline kept my interest from beginning to end. I would highly recommend this book to anyone! I can't wait for the second book in the series.

This book held my interest from start to finish. The characters are believable, the pace is good, and the plot twists are frequent. Being a Christian in a real world setting is one of the topics covered very well throughout the book, along with faith gone awry, and family crisis. I feel these topics are discussed and dealt with in a realistic and theologically sound way. Food becomes almost a character in the book, as various types of delicious food and beverage are described in detail. You may find that your next book purchase is a cookbook after reading about some of the meals the characters enjoy throughout the book! The book concluded at a good stopping place, while leaving the reader anticipating the next in the series. I'm delighted to highly recommend Chantal's Call to other readers of Christian fiction. I hope the wait for the next Women of Atherton book will be short.

Well-developed characters inhabit a world that is both familiar and uniquely foreign. Set in a Mississippi town, Chantal's Call introduced me to several new things. Who knew there were Cajun-Asian fusion restaurants? I didn't, but I'm not from the deep south, either. I found this to be a fun read for its Chick Lit moments, but the category for this well written work is hard to put down. There is Mystery, Suspense, and a touch of Romance to go along with the Contemporary. Whichever category you choose as a favorite, this book is sure to please all.

Format: Paperback
All the while I read Chantal's Call, I commiserated with Chantal about her tentative relationship with not only her sister, but with Deputy Marc Thibodaux. My younger sister and I, though close, have had a rocky relationship because we are such different people. Also, in love, bad relationships created in me a fear and hesitancy to do much more than wish for love rather than chase after that particular future. These shared challenges kept me reading, wondering if Chantal and Brigitte and Marc would find their way to the rosy future we all hope for.

Descriptions of the Atherton family seat, as it were, and the strong sense of community (sometimes a negative in regards to privacy!) came across strong and clear. Weave in with that the tales my husband shared of his own youth in Long Beach, Mississippi, and I wonder if I will recognize anything when he finally takes me there one of these years. Traci writes the setting with a definite fondness, and she made me wish for pictures to fully relish the locale.

The only hiccup while reading was a bit too much focus on character actions, such as body language, opening soda cans and such, which bogged the story's flow. Another challenge were the long scenes that didn't seem related to the plot or the conflict at hand. But the characters and their interactions were delightful and kept me turning pages... although I was a bit miffed that a certain person didn't get a fist to the jaw.

I look forward to book 2, Brigitte's Battle.

Overall rating: 3.5 out of 5. Cut out some of the excess detail and this would easily rate a 4. Might I suggest Self-Editing for Fiction Writers by Renni Browne and Dave King.

Would I read it again: More than likely

Would I recommend it to others: Yes.
