First off, this is an LDS fiction book. It has references specific to the Mormon religion- talk of God, going to church and praying.
In this book, there is no mystery for the reader. We know everything that happened and most of the book is waiting for the characters to figure it out as well. I'm not sure I loved that approach- there is just something about a mystery/suspense that holds more tension when the reader is trying to figure things out as well.
Jennie was a likable and strong girl. Her heart and determination was evident from the very beginning of the book. It was in direct contrast with the evil and and unsteadiness of the "bad guy".
It took me a good one third to one half of the book to really start enjoying this story. I wasn't a fan of how the first part of the book played out. The current situation flopped back and forth with flashbacks. It was slow going as it set up for the rest of the book. Once I reached about the halfway point, I was engaged and interested. The story moved more quickly and I was anxious to know how it would all play out. I would call this a light suspense novel.
Content: Some violence and peril. Clean.
