In Harm's Way
Christian Suspense Romance. Shawneda Marks. Revell Books, In Harms Way, Irene Hannon Sunday, April 25, 2010
Vertical Reach = 4
I enjoyed the reference to a relationship from the agent but I would have loved a chance to peak into the prayers and worship of Agent Nick. I loved his testimony if I would have been able to see more interaction directly between he and God it would have been a five.
Ministry Message = 5
You are never alone when you have God in your life. This message was clear and demonstrated well throughout the story. The sub messages all supported this main message and resonated well throughout the story.
Craft = 5
Great execution of character and presenting the romance and suspense in a fresh and exciting way. This book had twists coming even I didn't expect and it is not easy to stump me.
Aesthetics = 5
The only graphic design team I love more than Revell's is my own. I absolutely LOVE their attention to detail...the Raggedy Anne doll is an awesome touch.
Dollar$ & $ense = 4.75
This is the closest I've come to giving a five in a long time. Not only will book clubs love this book I believe that churches and Christian foster care organizations in particular would do well to share it with their older children about to age out of the system. As a former foster child I loved it!
