***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Police Officer Tuck Chandler is good at his job. He’s also good at holding women at arm’s length. Jilted by his fiancée for his dedication to his job, he’s not about to open himself up to hurt like that again.
Laurie Blake is a struggling photographer. After growing up in a wealthy family, she’s determined to make it on her own, even if it means doing it the hard way.
When Tuck is assigned to a puzzling burglary involving Laurie’s fledgling photography business, he goes into it with his usual perseverance. He wants to help her – if she’ll let him. As the case unfolds and the mystery deepens, another question arises.
Will the past get in the way of their future?
I love the way in which the author was able to make Gideon one of my favorite characters, even though he didn’t speak. He was a non-verbal autistic child that stole the hearts of the readers. The author was so respectful, factual and down to earth with his character that the reader couldn’t help but choose him to be their favorite. Of course I also enjoyed Laurie and Tuck and both of their families. The author was really able to show the love and bond that the family had. The connection made me long for that type of connection in my everyday life.
The author also threw in several twists, turns, bumps and curves for the reader to try to figure out as they zoomed through the story. There was plenty of action along with prayer and love to round out this story and make it complete. I really enjoyed not being able to predict what was going to happen next as well as to make the connections as they came along. The author did a phenomenal job with not being predictable, even when it should have been.
I am already looking forward to the next book by author Melanie Snitker as she may be the newest author to make my top 20 favorites list! If you are looking for a book with a bit of mystery, a family bond, love and some faith then look no further – This book is the book that you have been searching for! It has everything that makes a good story an amazing one! Add this to your TBR list and you won’t be sorry! It is a fun, quick read that will fill a boring afternoon and make your day just a bit better!
