    This review was written for Jewel of the Nile, softcover.
    Tessa Afshar is an author that has not written a book yet that I haven't enjoyed. This book has not disappointed me.

    This wasn't exactly what I was expecting, but it was good. It had Biblical persons mentioned in the book but they were not major characters. This book was set in Biblical times but the characters, though well developed, were fictional except possibly one.

    This story is part mystery and part romance. The characters were well developed. Some items, while making the story interesting were not quite believable. This story did a good job of showing true Christian faith and beliefs without being preachy.

    I would recommend this book and give it a 4 out of 5-star rating.

    This review was written for Jewel of the Nile, softcover.
    Each time I read a book by Tessa Afshar, I find myself doubly blessed. Yes, she writes marvelous stories to satisfy my love for fiction, but she also shares words that both challenge and deepen my faith. I find myself amazed with the depth of her fictional characters, and I often go to my Bible to check many of the details in the story. Jewel of the Nile is certainly no exception. I fell in love with Chariline and Theo, and I found myself eagerly turning pages to see what this young impulsive woman was going to do next, and what Theo would have to do in order to protect her from those impetuous actions. I enjoyed that many other familiar people from the Book of Acts are mentioned, and that Priscilla and Aquilla once again get a chance to shine. I also gained a whole new perception of the encounter between Philip and the Eunuch that is recorded in Acts 8!

    Jewel of the Nile is filled with adventure, danger, and intrigue, as Chariline searches for the father she's never known. There's also a swoon-worthy romance that offers so much more than just physical attraction. Above all, this is a story that offers a powerful faith message. As Priscilla reminds Chariline "The problem is that when you are flesh-driven, you cannot be Spirit-led." This is a remarkable book and I recommend it to all who enjoy biblical fiction.

    I received a complimentary copy from the publisher and NetGalley. There was no obligation for a favorable review. These are my own thoughts.

    I am basis to anything Tessa writes because I will always give her books a 4+ star rating. This was an absolute masterpiece. Even though my rating says 5 star, it's currently sitting at a 4.75 star rating as I await my re-read. No seriously, this was such a great read. Tessa can do no wrong in my eyes. You can tell that she has done a great deal of research and studying of the Word of God. Her books help show the Light of Christ and you can feel her love for Him in her writing. Simply brilliant and will remain a favorite Christian & Biblical fiction author for me.

    Now, this book is one of her New Testament novels. The story as a whole is well paced and pulls you in to the time and location. Getting to see Cush and Rome was absolutely phenomenal! Tessa didn't hold back with plot nor did she hold back on the various characters within the story. I adored how real and relatable the characters felt from start to finish.

    Chariline & Theo are definitely one of my pudding pies for sure now. They were such phenomenal characters and just absolutely cute together. I swooned for them the entire story.

    Chariline was a bit more sassy and impulsive for me, she somewhat reminded me of Ariadne from Thief of Corinth. I loved her sass and headstrong attitude. She kept me on my toes from start to finish.

    Theo was still amazing. I loved him in Thief of Corinth so to see him in his own story with a new romance -- SWOONED!!! He was always an honorable and respectable man, so that never changed about him. His backstory still crushed me, but to see him win in this book warmed my heart!

    I loved the family history and how much Chariline was determined to know the truth. The plot twists and turns kept me wanting more. This novel gripped my heart. It made me laugh and cry. It shook me to my core at times.

    I 100-percent recommend this novel and can't wait for my re-read of this beauty now that my physical copy has arrived.
