Danger at the Door was really good. I'm 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 don't normally read suspense, but this was not too scary, even for me. It isn't horror at all. This was very different from her other book "Its Not About Me", 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 Sutton's 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. Laney's fears were dealt with in a very unique way, and she is also an amazing character. One thing I love about Sutton's 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 everyone's need for God, while not shoving "religion" down people's throats.
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.
Michelle Sutton's Danger at the Door is an awesome read. Don't be turned off by the ebook format. I was at first because after sitting at computer all day, I wanted to read a book that I could hold in my hands. I'm so glad that I downloded Danger at the Door. Michelle has developed some very memorable characters and a love interest that's to die for. If you like suspense, you'll love it. I haven't read anything in the suspense line this good in about a year since I finished the Brandilyn Collins Kanner Lake series. The suspense is light, just enough to make you keep reading to make sure the heroine is safe. Michelle is an excellent writer who kept me up way too late into the night and made me get up way too early on a Saturday morning with bagel in hand to finish the novel. Even though she brought it to a funny and delightful close, I still begged for more. If you're like me and you love it, we'll have more to love, as I've heard that the sequel is coming out in April. Michelle Sutton you've outdone yourself and I can't wait to read what's coming next in the lives of these two wonderful characters.
