i blog 4 books4 Stars Out Of 5August 28, 2010i blog 4 booksHand of Fate by Lis Wiehl is the second book in the Triple Threat series. Three women - a TV crime reporter, a federal prosecutor, and a FBI agent - work together to solve crimes and the problems that pop up in their lives. When Jim Fate, a controversial radio personality, is murdered, the three friends come together again to solve the murder. In addition, each struggles with their own personal situation - pregnancy, addiction, and facing the past.I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. I love a good suspense novel and this one reads a lot like James Patterson's Women's Murder Club series - not too graphic or scary, but with enough to keep you hanging on. I also liked how the author worked spiritual themes in through one of the characters ... more realistic than many Christian books. And while this is the second book in a series, it seems that each pretty much stands alone. I can't wait to read the other two books in the series.I would definitely recommend this book if you enjoy suspense / mysteries. I received a FREE copy of this book from Thomas Nelson's Booksneeze program in exchange for my fair and honest review.
Janet5 Stars Out Of 5June 21, 2010Janet"Hand of Fate", the second Triple Threat novel by Lis Wiehl (with April Henry), was a race-to-the-finish read for me. I was intrigued the whole way through. Not only does it have an intense murder mystery, but each of the three female friend characters brought her own story line to the pages as well. While telling these amazing stories, Wiehl explores social problems and issues including big government, free speech, terrorism, drug addiction, illegal immigration, abortion, assault, racism, domestic violence, and more. A reading group guide at the end of the book includes questions to help readers further explore their thoughts on these. Characters in the book form and offer their personal opinions, too.I wouldnt classify the book as Christian fiction, but one of the characters is a Christian. She and one of her friends wrestle with the question, If God is loving and good, why does He allow suffering and pain? Also, both of these characters found themselves in a crucial moment, simply praying, "Please." I thought that was beautiful. As you might have guessed by now, Wiehl has packed a lot of ideas into this one great book.Of course, the biggest theme of the series is the friendship the three women share. They knew each other in high school, reconnected later in life, and hold jobs that coordinate and cooperate. They work together often, but also meet regularly to catch up on each others lives, support one another through lifes trials, and enjoy each others company. Their intertwined lives help solve the big and little mysteries of life.
