Really good storyline with a mixture of intrique along with endearing and interesting characters.  Well done. And, most especially clean content with emotional dialogue and discoveries.  It's worth the small amount of money to get on nook.

A good drama with twists and turns. Sometimes I thought it was slightly predictable, but most books are. This had that extra something, personally and powerfully executed in content and delivery! Well done.

This had me guessing throughout the whole book. I really enjoyed this suspenseful writing and interaction between the 3-D Characters.

Wow, this book really pulled me in from the first to the last paragraph. I'm a worker in a health care facility so this plot really tapped into my emotions on every level. Intensely elevating in faith and inspiration. Great plot along wtih three dimensional characters. If anyone in hollywood is reading this, make this into a movie please! Any one of her books/fiction novels would do well to a transfer into a movie on a faith or Hallmark channel. Jemma Rodgriguez

This was my kind of book! It was smart, classically entertaining! Mystery, emotional, funny, sad, intensely rewarding read. I realy enjoyed it. Swanson's books are always a delight. It's a shame she doesn't have a higher following. She is combo of Steele and Macomber! I recommend this.

I thought this book was decidedly entertaining in all aspects and that includes the characters and plot. It as a "FREE READ" and worth my time to read it. Every book no matter the author will have some "slight editing errors" and this may have had a "couple" there and there...but nothing that was glaringly apparent or distracting to the overall plot, theme, and message of this faith driven book. I loved it. Good job.

Was a little mundane at times, but an ok read.

The storyline was good, but the writing, grammar and incorrect use if words (is Dom's wife's name Marie or Sarah? The book used both.) made this a frustrating read. I couldn't stand to keep reading how unusually beautiful the main characters were. Character dialogue was mundane and repetitive.

I was very distracted by improperly positioned and missing commas, poor grammar, and improperly used words: P. 4 "residents" used when should be "residents's" (or resident's depending on your style); p. 11 "determine, if I'm fact," should be "determined if, in fact,"; p. 12 should be the verb "nauseated", not adjective "nauseous"; p. 15 should be "run", not "ran". I was so frustrated by this point I stopped reading and prayed our youth can speak and write better than this.
