    " I did not read the first two books in the series but I do not feel like that was a problem as I understood all that was happening. However, I feel like the first 350 pages gave a story and then in five pages it was completed - lots left hanging. Just so so. "

    " I have to say this is the first Christian/romance/thriller that I've ever read, and I was very surprised that I liked it. It was free on Kindle, and I was in a hotel room on a business trip and not sure what to read next. Chapters alternate between Donnetta a married senior citizen and Kai, a young single gal who works on a cruise ship. They end up trapped together during a hurricane and find their way to Donneta's hometown. They both have to find their faith and love again. It sounds totally cheesey as I describe it, but I like Ms. Wingate's writing style and her characters. There are some good moral lessons in the book that are subtle, as opposed to some Christian novels that get really preachy. "
