***Stephenee – #NerdGirlSteph’s  Review***
This is the second book by author Melanie Snitker that I have read and while I didn’t think that it could be better than her first one (which I loved) it was!  This book is a fun, family filled, bumpy road that was endearing to the reader. The author did an amazing job with the characters, the setting, the plot and the way in which the reader was consistently on the edge of their seat, frantically turning the pages of the book to see what happens next!

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!
