This is a pleasant novel for readers of light Christian romance. It is not a mystery as we know the identity of the bad fellow early on. The main characters do experience danger and suspense, however. The villain is cast as a really terrible individual and it almost seemed too much. It seemed impossible he could get away with his extreme behavior. I had trouble being captivated by Ellie and Owen, the heroine and hero of the story. They were reactionary, often not thinking through their actions. Both were in painful situations in their lives and were struggling. While the end had the typical romantic conclusion, there were many troubling issues in their lives that are left hanging. This is a good novel for readers who enjoy a light romantic suspense and don't mind if complex issues in a relationship are not resolved in the end.
