From the second chapter, I knew who the killer was, and the clues that followed just confirmed it. There really was no mystery. At first I didn’t like either character that much, but, as the story progressed, I did come to like them. The story, the dialogue, and the thoughts presented seemed so simplistic it made the characters seem less mature. The wedding vows were very modern, with no promise to obey on the bride’s part. There was also no mention of self-defense, which was very prevalent in western justice. I did appreciate the clean, Christian element to the story. I enjoyed the story, perhaps a little more than 4 stars but not enough for five.
Now five years later, Logan returns only to discover that Megan has been arrested for the murder of a man who attacked her. Very quickly Logan dispenses with the ridiculous idea that Megan could be a killer, but there is the concern that Megan could possibly identify the real killer and thus the scepter of danger hangs over her head until that individual is apprehended. In order to protect her, Logan takes Megan to his family's' ranch. Most of the story is devoted to the couple's adjustment to one another after a five year separation. Megan is no longer a girl, but a woman fully grown, and one who is not only independent, but also determined to stand on her own two feet. Logan has his work cut out learning to deal with this "new" Megan. LOL
There is a hint of intrigue as Logan tries to uncover the identity of the real killer, and by the time his identity is revealed I had already figured it out...there are a lot of clues provided throughout the story. FYI, as you might expect with an inspirational romance, this is a clean story; no sex. Despite the fact that there are no explicit scenes in the book, there is some focus on the intense physical attraction between the couple--especially Logan's attraction to Megan. I do like the fact that the author brought up the issue physical attraction between the couple, because so often Christian romance novels try to pretend as though there isn't physical love between a husband and wife. Furthermore, even though the issue is raised in this story, it is by no means crude! All in all this was a very nice story and one that I happily recommend. Happy reading!
Second of all, too much emphasis was put on the actual physical act instead of the spiritual bonding that needed to take place in the marriage. It just seemed like half the book concerned Logan and Megan's actually having sex...Thirdly, the language they used in discussing the issue was a bit cheesy. "Make me your wife, Logan." Instead of "Make love to me" or some other more regular wording that would have probably taken place. There is nothing dirty about the topic. It's beautiful when two people are married and not something to tip toe around. But I just a bit put off by all the "making her his wife" when they were already married and the other odd language used. Consummating a marriage,becoming intimate, or even making love would have been simpler terms.
I do not want this to be the deciding issue in buying this book. Like I said, there was nothing dirty about the topic. I just was a bit uncomfortable with the way it was handled at times. The story was excellent. A lot of the reviewers claimed they knew "who" from the beginning, but I actually didn't until it was revealed. I'm not sure why, but I had my mind set on someone else...it just never crossed my mind!
In my opinion, this book was slow moving and there was not much excitement to keep me interested. The ending was nice but an ending is just a brief few pages compared to the 280 pages it took to get there. The anticlimactic read did not meet my expectations.
For me, it was very easy to figure out the killer as I had that pegged from very early on.
Please read for yourself. It could be that it was not a good fit for me although I normally love this genre.
