My Review: This book really surprised me with how much I enjoyed it. The mystery was really interesting, though maybe a little far fetched, and the plot, though it starts a little slow, has a really good pace. I liked all of the characters and thought they were well developed. It is christian fiction but its not overly preachy and though I'm not christian myself I still really enjoyed the messages that the book presented. If you like a clean mystery then this is a great one to check out.
