Haven's Hope by Dena Netherton

The second novel in this series moves the plot along nicely. It concentrates more on character development rather than suspense although there is a bit of suspense near the end. We see Haven experiencing some healing of her trauma and even considering the possibility of entering into a romantic relationship.

I am finding Haven to be a woman with whom I can't connect. She continues to do dumb things. For example, when her car breaks down and her phone is dead (a dead cell phone is a way overused suspense instigator), Haven decides to walk six miles home rather than the few hundred feet to a hospital and sure aid. She remains too naive for my taste.

The strength of the novel revolves around how characters deal with anger toward God because of past tragedy. We see good examples of growth in healing and trusting God for the future.

I look forward to reading the final book in the series as the villain is still in the picture.

You can read my review of the first book in the series, Haven's Flight.

My rating: 4/5 stars.
