Theresa4 Stars Out Of 5May 22, 2010TheresaWhen I received "The Right Call", I knew that it was the last book in the series. I wasn't sure how it would do for a stand-alone book, but it fared very well. The story and the characters didn't rely on the previous books and were easy to get to know. There was references to past happenings, but nothing that would make you feel like you needed to read the others in the series or you were really missing something.I really enjoyed "The Right Call". It was a fast paced mystery packed with murder and excitement. It was full of twists and turns and along with the mystery, was a side story of romance. I found myself on the edge of my seat more than once. I found Kathy's writing style captivating and her characters likable and quite realistic, especially Ethan. I found that after I finished the book, I wanted to know more about these people and their lives! I now have put the first two books " The Real Enemy" and "The Last Word" down on my TBR list.
St. Paul, MNAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5May 15, 2010St. Paul, MNAge: 55-65Gender: femaleKathy Hermans book, The Right Call, the third book of the Sophie Trace Trilogy, which also includes The Real Enemy and The Last Word, picks right up with another thrilling, dangerous episode that includes Police Chief Brill Jessup, which ultimately endangers her family and her daughters boyfriend, Ethan. If you have read the previous two books, you are well-acquainted with the well-rounded, in-depth issues and characters of the Jessup family.The Right Call drives you right into the center of murder by hire, random shootings, greed, addiction, deeply held secrets, and poor choices made by some of her characters, affecting whole town of Sophie Trace.Ethan learns of details behind the deaths of five people that could break open the case. However, his decision to disclose this information will affect the lives of others and maybe even himself. Even if he doesnt disclose the information, other lives are still at stake. His walk with the Lord gives him insights and wisdom of what to do in this deadly situation.Kathys novel will show you that we are all addicted to something, and what or Who we choose to follow will make all the difference in the world. Choices we make do not just affect just ourselvestheres a ripple effect of consequences that incorporates others around us. The importance of a relationship with God, so that you can call on Him for wisdom and direction in making decisions in difficult situations, is one of the main insights gleaned from this book. I highly recommend the whole series.This book was provided free by Audra of The B & B Media Group, Inc., for my honest review of the book.
Amydeanne4 Stars Out Of 5April 30, 2010AmydeanneThe Right Call takes you down a suspenseful road of whodunit and reasons behind why it's happening even though they don't see it. Addictions - gambling, drinking, smokes and other sins like pride are displayed and shown how destructive they can be over time.This is the third book in the Sophie Trace Trilogy. I haven't read the first two. It was good as a stand alone, but there were a few parts that I know I would have gotten better at the beginning of the story if I had already read the first two books. That being said, it was still easy to pick up and read.I liked how Herman made the characters all collide together without them knowing it. It melded the story smoothly together and allowed me to get the big picture. I love the "old folk" group in there, especially when the one guy gets asked how are you? and he always replies "I can't complain, but I always do." LOL. That just torched me each time.Seriously though Kathy Herman takes a good look at life through this suspense-filled book and how small sins can overtake our lives and destroy what we've built. It made me pensive about them and how/what sins I let control me.The only two things that I didn't care for in the book was that it repeated itself a few times over - reestablishing the characters -- reminded me of school.. which I kinda get, just not my favorite thing; felt like it was drilling it into me.. of course I forget things easily so it did make the characters stick well in my head.. so it wasn't a huge issue and probably not a bad thing.. just something I noticed. And the other thing that bothered me was that I started at book three! Now I'll have to get copies of books one and two so I can read them in order!!!***review copy provided.***
