It's been a while since I've read any Christian fiction, but this was a good place to start. I already had it on my nook so I just picked it so I wouldn't have to spend anything. I've read Blackstock before and I liked her.
This book reminded me of why. She weaves in just enough of everything without over doing it. She doesn't beat you over the head with all the things you are doing wrong and have her characters make you feel guilty for not living just so. She gives her characters problems that you could relate to. She has excellent character development without being unbelievable. They learn and grow just enough, but not too much.
Her plots have just enough suspense and a this one had a tiny hint of possible romance to satisfy both of those things if you're looking for them.
I liked this book, it was a quick read. It didn't bring me down to a level that she couldn't recover with a happy ending but she also didn't give you a trite ending with a bow on top.
