Danger at the Door - eBook
I did not enjoy this book. The characters were weak. At lot of time was spent with the 2 main characters lusting after one another. Not that this is inappropriate I just found it juvenile.

Wish it was longer!
Danger at the Door was really good. IÃ¢ÂÂm giving it 4 stars not because the story was in any way lacking, but because I wish it could have been a little longer, and the crisis a little more drawn-out. I donÃ¢ÂÂt normally read suspense, but this was not too scary, even for me. It isnÃ¢ÂÂt horror at all. This was very different from her other book Ã¢ÂÂIts Not About MeÃ¢ÂÂ, as that one is written more toward teens, and this one more toward adults. Though, any age group older teen and up can relate to SuttonÃ¢ÂÂs books, I believe. The romance in this book was more warm/sweet than her other book, though, in typical Sutton-style, she has one very romantic kiss. It seemed to me like the actual conflict with the stalker was a little rushed, but that might be because I was imagining all kinds of long, horrible battles in my mind. I loved Bojan! He is hilarious, and I loved how she used their communication barrier to create funny, awkward, and other kinds of situations throughout the book. LaneyÃ¢ÂÂs fears were dealt with in a very unique way, and she is also an amazing character. One thing I love about SuttonÃ¢ÂÂs books is that she always includes God. He becomes another character in the story, not just a deity casually mentioned whenever she thought she had not done so in a while. In our real lives, it should be they same way. He should be a main character, comfortable and familiar. Sutton did a great job of showing everyoneÃ¢ÂÂs need for God, while not shoving Ã¢ÂÂreligionÃ¢ÂÂ down peopleÃ¢ÂÂs throats.

Danger at the Door is fun, fast-paced, and pure enjoyment. Of course, I never wanted to stop reading, until I got to the last word.
In this e-book by Michelle Sutton, Laney Cooper loses her fiancÃÂ© to in an auto accident, and becomes agoraphobic. Alone on the anniversary of his death, she memorializes him with a special pizza dinner with all the right trimmingsÃ¢ÂÂbut no onions. Never with onions. When the pizza is delivered withÃ¢ÂÂyou guessed itÃ¢ÂÂonions, Laney takes it out on the delivery man. Bojan Trajkovski, the owner of the restaurant where Laney ordered the pizza had taken over deliveries that night to help his manager. He is appalled that the order was botched, and wants to make it up to her. Because of his thick foreign accent, and miscommunication, Laney finds the man rude, and reports him to who she thinks is the owner. As Bojan continues to shower her with kindness, the two hit it off. Laney eventually becomes his language coach, and a romance is sparked between the two. But danger is lurking in the grounds surrounding LaneyÃ¢ÂÂs home. Can she and Bojan figure out who is after her before itÃ¢ÂÂs too late? Can she trust that God will take care of her no matter where she goes?
Not only was the plot lively and fresh, but the characters were extremely so. An agoraphobic heroine, and a hero whose way of speaking made his mess-ups so funny to read were a delight. A highlight of the book. I highly recommend this book for those who love romance, and those who love suspense.
