rating: 4 of 5 stars
I really loved this story. It is every girl's fairy tale come true with a happy ending...with a lot of angst before the happy ending. Traci Hunter Abramson does a fantastic job with this novel; with just the right mixture of romance and suspense to target every book lover out there.
This is Traci's second book that came out in 2008. This is also the second book of hers that is nominated for a Whitney Award this year. It says a lot about Traci that she has two books that were nominated in the same year. She has become one of my favorite authors the past few years.
She also has a new book that was just released on March 2nd, called Lockdown. I have not read it yet, as I am still making my way through all of the Whitney Award Nominee books. As soon as I am done reading all of these books, Lockdown, will be one of the first books I will pick up. Here is what Lockdown is about, courtesy of Goodreads:
Only twice had she set foot inside the building since the massacre. The first time had been just a month after the tragedy .. . . The second time she had returned to the scene of the crime had been two days ago when she forced herself to enter the building to check on the temporary office for the SEAL team. The counselor she had seen in the months after the shooting had encouraged her to face her fears, but now . . . Riley wasn’t sure she was ready to face them after all. Caught up in a hostage situation that is hauntingly familiar, Riley Palmetta once more finds her life hanging in the balance. What starts out as a well-organized and highly intensive training course for the prevention of random acts of terror quickly turns into a real-life nightmare of suspense and intrigue that will test the faith and finely honed skills of Tristan Crowther and his elite group of LDS Navy SEALS. For Tristan, this is not only a race to save lives; it is a deeply personal mission that moves relentlessly toward an irreversible crisis. And life—as well as love—is on the line. Seasoned LDS author Traci Hunter-Abramson once again displays her skills and expertise in this fast-paced, suspense-filled novel. It is a story loaded with action and real-life parallels— guarateed to leave you both breathless.
It looks like it will be another exciting read brought to you by Traci; one that I look forward to immensely. View all my reviews.
