Wow! What a great book! I love how Terri Blackstock combines romance and suspense to make marvelous books! Most books I read that have a romance/suspense combination put too much emphasis on one or the other, and the book isn't that great. But Terri always manages to have the perfect balance of both. I think TRIAL BY FIRE was one of the best books in the series. I must admit, I was pretty shocked she put Issie and Nick together, but in the end I was convinced they were the perfect couple! I'd definitely buy this book because you'll want to read it over and over. I know I have!
Please do not have this book be the conclusion of this series....I loved it. My only complaint is I do no have a book 5 to continue reading about the trials and tribulations of the folk in Newpointe. I especially enjoy the chararcter of Nick. I would love to see him have to face and deal with ghosts from Issie's past...as we all must confront them from time to time.Please do another!!!
I received this book in the mail. This is one of the best books I have read. It is a page turner. I was glad I picked it up to read on my day off. I could not lay it down. I am glad it deals with real people and not a utopian society. Blackstock illustrates how God's grace is extended to all. I'm glad I read this book and will encourgage my congregation to do the same.
