Excellent Book From an Excellent Series!!
September 21, 2015
What an excellent book! This is the third book in the Deep Haven series and each one has been excellent so far. Even though this is a series so far I have seen that you can read them in any order if you want. Susan does a great job of bringing characters from the other books in to tie the books together but the story isn't dependent upon knowing the whole story. Looking forward to starting book number 4!!
The Perfect Match is book 3 in the Deep Haven series, by Susan May Warren.
Someone in Deep Haven, MN is starting fires just as Ellie Karlson is sent to Deep Haven to be the new Fire Chief. She enters town as the firemen are fighting a house fire. Ellie works hard to train her crew, but a lot of them do not want her there. One of them feels she is the reason for the fires. Ellie suspects from the beginning, the fires are set deliberately and investigates to get to the bottom of them.
I love this series! I like how characters from the previous 2 books are also main characters in this book. We get to see how God has changed their lives and how they handle the difficulties they face.
Can't believe the comment this was boring. Sons of Thunder was NOT biblically sounds, so I guess the boring comment would stand in light of that. Susan got back to her roots in this work and it was fun to see the depth of her style and faith shine again.
Having read SMW's "Sons of Thunder" and "Nightingale" first, this book was pretty disappointing. In fact, it's hard to believe it's written by the same author. I found the story a little bit boring and formulaic, although it did pick up somewhat near the end. I don't know what happened to Susan May Warren between 2004 and 2010, but she took big leaps as a writer! If you enjoy the Karen Kingsbury genre, you will probably enjoy this book.
Ellie Karlson, the protagonist, faces an uphill battle as interim fire chief. Chauvinism is alive and well in this small town, and she has her hands full as the boss of a firehouse full of men. Written in omniscient voice, this novel is one that I happily read beginning to end. I like getting inside the heads of the characters to better understand their thinking.The characters are well-rounded. Ellie never feels good enough and carries a chip on her shoulder. This creates a good bit of tension that equates to interesting reading. When people are hurting, Dan, the town preacher, is uncertain which words to use or Bible verses to quote. He's a loving pastor who wrestles with his inadequacies. How refreshing!Minor characters, Joe and Mona, go through difficult times and face a tough decision.There's drama in this novel. There's romance. There's mystery with a crime to solve. What more could a reader of Christian Fiction want? I give this one a thumbs UP!
