Mari is character I really liked for her spunk. She is strong and sassy, but yet very human. Nowa was another character I liked, and then there is Luke. Ah, the good doctor who is virtually a PI and bodyguard as well as an amazing guy. The dialog between Luke and Mari was often humorous and always interesting, even when Mari did things that made me want to scream. There is plenty of fast moving suspense as a possible copy-cat killer is causing all kinds of issues.
While I did figure out who the killer was, I still enjoyed every page of this book. Faith, forgiveness, and healing were all strong themes in this book, as well as dealing with fear, anger and finding hope and stability and coming to terms with where some of the main characters really stood with God. Oh, and wait till you find out why it's called "The Color of Danger." There is a very good reason for that. It's my first book by this author, and it's well worth the five stars.
My copy came from Celebrate Lit in exchange for my honest review and nothing more.
With a bad past, the main character has trust issues, and the author explores this deeply within the story. I'm not one for love at first sight and was pleased to find this was not one of those romances.
Unlike the fantasy reads I'm used to, this story follows the mystery surrounding a serial killer on the loose. The story is tight and put together well, with the romance being sweet and not overpowering to the mystery-themed plot.
The characters are adults, but with this being a clean, Christian novel, I believe teenagers who love mysteries would also enjoy this read.
The author also listed discussion questions at the back of the book, and I highly recommend this to Christian book clubs. The questions are already there, and the discussion would be about trust.
I've had Christians tell me they don't like to read Christian novels as much because they find them predictable or the main characters keep getting saved from bad circumstances, not putting enough danger in the story. (I've seen this myself with some of my past reads.) However, that's not the case with Color of Danger. It's true to life-bad things happen, and the characters have to learn to deal. That's where forgiveness, faith, and trust come in, no matter how hard to do at times.
Good job Alexa.
Luke came to Rio Azules to find out about his fiancee's death, Mari, wanted to find out who was stalking her.
Working together, they race to find a possible serial killer before it's too late.
Helping them is God's love, comfort and redemption.
Well I can officially say that Alexa Verde is a fantastic author.
