This is Author Sarah Monzon's debut novel, and she did a really good job. Some might consider the hero, Luke Masterson, too perfect, but my own Prince Charming was a lot like him. :) Becky Sawyer, the heroine, is well portrayed. Her emotional pain and thought processes ring true.
The story premise fascinated me - a modern-day Isaac and Rebecca. Becky's friend, Lisa, acted as the go-between and took her role seriously.
As an action/suspense fan, the mystery element added to the tension. The author put together an appealing story with characters I could care about.
I'm giving this one five stars and looking forward to more from this author.
