I think that the characters that the author succeeded in wanted us to like, I did like, and the villains --- I didn't like at all. The novel kept me interested until the very end. It flowed smoothly, and was easy to read, follow along, and understand. I am not an editor, but didn't notice any errors, and in fact I think that it was very well written. Debating whether to give it 4 or 5 stars, I decided to go with my own feelings about the book and gave it 5.
Since I depend much on other reviews, I seldom get a book that I don't like, so you will find most of my reviews are rated pretty high. I was entertained throughout the reading, and looked forward to my bedtime habit of reading before turning off the light for the night. I don't think that you will be disappointment if you chose to buy this ebook.
Annie's a good wife, mom, and Christian living through a personal crisis that's about to get worse - a lot worse. She takes a personal sabbatical and is terribly misunderstood by her mother, the press (oh yeah - mom is a media diva!), and Chet with his posse of the pious. I really did NOT like him. Not willing to explain anything to anyone, Annie heads for the hills - well, actually a mountain cabin - where she is confident she will find rest and renewal in her relationship with God. Instead, Annie discovers the greater purpose her retreat holds for two men. For one, there is eternal value. Two others come face to face with their eternal consequences.
The Runaway Pastor's Wife introduced me to characters I felt like I knew (both good and oh so annoying!), had me guessing, and ended with what I call an excellent "Goldilocks close" - it was just right.
What does a pastor's wife "with a past" do when it comes calling? When a man with murder on his mind arrives as well, who will be Annie's cavalry?
I clearly didn't understand why and what Michael was running from. I know whom he was running from, but this one man isn't God. Michael's decisions lead him to what he had become...can't say that I feel sorry for him.
Here's where it got a little unrealistic to me...when Max, Annie's and David's son, went to look for this mother. (I don't want to give a spoiler, so I can't anymore on that subject).
I thought that the whole purpose of the book was for Annie to get some quiet time to herself to think and pray, but it turned into her being the "hero" for Michael. That really threw me a curveball. Annie stopped focusing on herself and started focusing on Michael and now all of a sudden, she has the answer (so unreal)!
I felt the ending was very rushed. Everything "unfolded" in the last 20 pages of the book. It was all tied up into one neat package. I guess the author had to tie it up somehow. I didn't believe it for a second! The facts about Christine and Max and how that all came together was a little too much for me. We didn't even get to hear Christine's take on anything. I felt that the book ended abruptly.
This book had the potential for being 5 stars. I really give it 2.5 stars because I get the message, but the way the book was written was a little unrealistic and unbelievable.
