After reading Farraday Road I could hardly wait to getmy hands on Swope's Ridge. Ace Collins sure knows how to hook an audience and write a great mystery. Ihope that these two are the start of many books to come. My friends at church enjoyed them also.
Outstanding book and follow-up to Farraday Road. I could not put this book. Excellent writing and plot development. Even though I figured who the "leak" could be, I sometimes doubted with all the twists and turns that this book takes. Every wall in my apartment would be filled with this story board. I am anxiously looking forward to a third book and I want to find out more about Curtis, Jamie, Heather, and Lije. Don't keep us waiting Mr. Collins.
Swope's Ridge continues the story of Lije Evans, a small-town, Arkansas lawyer, trying to find the answer to who killed his wife. He thinks that her death is somehow related to her purchase of the property at Swope's Ridge. After he and his friends make an unusual discovery there, the team goes on a world-wide search for answers.The book is fast-paced with lots of twists and turns. I found it difficult to put down and hope to read more adventures of Lije Evans. Like Farraday Road, Swope's Ridge wasn't overtly Christian, but it did have a few more references to faith and several of the characters did attend church. I am not mentioning this as a negative factor, but for information. If you are expecting a book with Christian content, you will be disappointed. On the other hand, if you typically steer clear of "Christian fiction" and like mysteries, you should definitely consider reading this series.I received a copy of Swope's Ridge for free from Zondervan in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated for this review.
