    This book wouldn't be a favourite. Didn't finish it. The writing style didn't appeal to me.

    Not my type of book. I had to push myself to keep reading and as the book went on I found most incidents quite unbelievable. I also didn't see the main character showing signs of being a Christian although near the end she did send up some emergency prayers.

    Bonnie Calhoun writes a delightful novel filled with real people and real life. Sloane Templeton has inherited a book store with a zany manager. Calhoun's characters are a hoot! An example: the group of wacky senior citizens that meets in her bookstore but they don't read the books. When Sloane receives life-threatening messages on her computer the police become involved and Sloane tries to keep the incident a secret, which is impossible. With each page you wonder what will happen next to complicate Sloane's life. Calhoun writes thick tension but breaks it up with her lovable characters and their zany ways. The reader knows the criminal threat is dangerous, but enough laugh out loud moments keep the story from dragging. There is no sagging middle to this story. Highly recommended.

    Fun book to read as it infuses humor while weaving a tale of mystery and self-discovery. The author uses interesting character self-talk to provide insight to the main character's, Sloane, mindset at tense moments in the book. While some might view these self-talk segments as somewhat snarky, I found them to be an amusing take on what and how most people surely think to themselves on a daily basis. The references to red velvet cake also had me laughing as I completely identified with indulging in the wonderful treat and always finding ways or occasions to do so!

    Just when you think you've figured out who is behind all the threats in Sloane's life, the author throws in another twist or comment from a supporting character that has you guessing again until the end.

    Overall a good book written with self-discovery, faith, suspense and the importance of love and support of family and friends.

    An enjoyable light read, not great literature but pleasant escapism.
