This is a great book, full of suspense and intrigue. I chose it because I'm a dog lover and was pleasantly surprised by the depth of the writing. The only issue I had was that there were a lot of characters introduced very early in the book and at times I found it difficult to keep them straight. Otherwise a wonderful and entertaining read.
Without a Trace is the introduction to the character Bree Nichols and her dog Samson. The reader is drawn deeper into suspense as Bree searches for her stolen son. A shocking conclusion reveals what the reader never suspected.
I enjoyed this first book by Colleen Coble. This is the story of Bree who continues to search for her missing husband and child when all others have given up, she is aided only by Sampson, her search and rescue dog.
I love the way the author brings her characters to life without a lot of worthless chatter and I like the way she tells the history of them throughout the entire book, not just in the first 3 chapters, because in doing that it adds to the "getting to know them" process. I think it's more realistic that way. Her story telling is terrific. She's great at blending mystery and suspense with a touch of romance. I can't wait to get into the second book.
I thoroughly enjoy reading books written by Colleen Coble.
I like her style of writing. You want to keep on reading to find out how the story will end, and to see if you have figured out the story. Her writing reveals God's love and His plan for His people throughout the story. Thank you for your stories.
