In Plain Sight - eBook
Are we all talking about the same book?
I'm sorry to differ, but in reading the previous reviews, I can't help but wonder if it is the same book I downloaded and began to read. I can't believe that CBD is actually selling this book. There are ways to say things that a writer wants to say without being so worldly and graphic. It appears to be an adults-only book that someone went through and here and there added some Christian comments. I would not be surprised to find this book elsewhere...but in a Christian book list? No way!

Michelle Sutton is the bomb! The woman knows how to tell a great story! She never disappoints. I thoroughly enjoyed In Plain Sight. Loved it even more than the first one, Danger At The Door. In Plain Sight is my favorite novel out of all of MichelleÃ¢ÂÂs. I loved the suspense! How she kept me hooked. Wanting to know what happens next. Her characters in this novel are great! You really feel the pain that Jovana and Randy have gone through in their pasts. You get to see the healing process that they go through. I like how she tied in the story of Hosea and Gomer. All and all another wonderful read! The only complaint I have is that she has a tendency of keeping me up until four or five in the morning when IÃ¢ÂÂm reading one of her books. Lol

Great new book by Michelle!
(The copy that I reviewed was an ARC ebook, so it is not the final edited version.)
True love gives, it does not take. It does not demand its own way. It is patient, kind, etcÃ¢ÂÂ¦ This is the lesson that Jovana is learning, slowly but surely. Through her own painful experiences she has learned to distrust men outside of her family. Even though her brother trusts Randy, her boss and her brotherÃ¢ÂÂs friend, he has yet to win JovanaÃ¢ÂÂs trust in him as well. She assumes that he is like all the other men that used her despite the deep faith that she recognizes in him.
I loved the message in this book for women who have been deceived or hurt by men they thought they loved and who loved them back. Randy teaching Jovana about her self-worth was such a sweet thing to read about and I felt her self esteem growing throughout the book. I love it when a guy refuses to be scared away by the woman he loves. That is characterÃ¢ÂÂ¦ and I love a guy with true character!
The writing seemed a little rushed, especially towards the end, but that might just be because it was an ARC. IÃ¢ÂÂm not a writer so I am not sure exactly how many things change between the ARC and the final edited version of a book, so that might be changed in the final copy.
All in all, I really liked it and I would definitely recommend it. :)

This e-book ARC was provided to me by Michelle Sutton (thank you!). In Plain Sight is the sequel to Danger at the Door. ItÃ¢ÂÂs the story of Bojan TrajkovskiÃ¢ÂÂs sister, Jovana.
After escaping a dangerous and damaging relationship in Macedonia, Jovana moves to America under the protection of her older brother, and makes a living as a waitress at his restaurant. While working there, she meets a charming man who shows great interest in her. Jovana finds him very attractive, tries to fight it, and loses the battle. Won over, she determines to see him, even though her boss, Randy Strong, advises her against it.
Randy had promised Bojan that he would look out for his sister, but the task can sometimes prove difficult. Especially when she doesnÃ¢ÂÂt heed his warnings that the guy isnÃ¢ÂÂt what he seems. While Randy is falling for Jovana himself, he must be on his best behavior. But Jovana doesnÃ¢ÂÂt make it easy, as she offers herself to him at every turn, and doesnÃ¢ÂÂt even know why.
Stuck between his feelings for Jovana and his promise to her brother, Randy is at a loss as to how he can helpÃ¢ÂÂuntil the Lord impresses upon him to do something that could turn out to be a lifetime disaster.
I loved this book, and knew I would, considering the author. Michelle SuttonÃ¢ÂÂs work has yet to disappoint me. She tackles tough subjects head-on, and never backs down. Despite the seriousness of the subject matter of In Plain Sight, the story is a fast-paced, fun read. I credit the characters, in part; theyÃ¢ÂÂre strong, feisty and colorful. The story line satisfies, too, and Michelle always provides something fresh. I highly recommend In Plain Sight.
