This book was especially interesting to me because my daughter has suffered from chronic Lyme disease for twelve years. I am so glad to have this debilitating disease (that so many people do not understand) addressed in fiction in a very informative manner.
This was not your typical book. You actually learned a lot about Lyme disease and it symptons and all the bad things it can do to you. I never knew until now exactly what Lyme is all about. You won't put the book down until the last page.
When I heard Brandilyn Collins was writing a book about Lyme disease I was thinking, "How is that going to work? It can't be good.What is she thinking!?!?!" Well, guess what? I was so wrong. Yet again, Brandilyn Collins gives us one wild ride. From the beginning she captures your attention and doesn't let go until the very end.
Janessa McNeil is probably a typical doctor's wife, she takes care of the home, puts much of her energy into raising their daughter and dealing with the demons from her past. Jannie is not only haunted by her past but she is damaged by it. And Brock McNeil is probably a typical doctor, arrogant and never wrong. He's overly confident and quite honestly I had strong feelings of DISLIKE toward this man most of the book.
If you're a Brandilyn Collins' fan this is another winner! If you have never read Brandilyn Collins this is a great one to start with as it is a stand alone book. You will find her writing easy to follow and engaging.
I would like to thank B&H Books for the opportunity to review this book.
If you like learning while reading a gripping suspense story, this book is for you! The characters are well-formed, the plot is a real page-turner, the mystery holds the reader in suspense throughout the novel until the stunning finish, and important lessons are taught.
Through the reading, I learned about a disease I had only before heard about: Lyme. Brandilyn Collins has lived with Lyme disease and knows it first hand. She proves herself an excellent teacher as well as top-notch author. She includes her extensive research, by incorporating it into this engrossing tale. Fittingly, May is Lyme Disease Month.
Folks, be sure to read this one!
Thank you to Bonnie at Christian Fiction Blog Alliance and B&H Books for my copy.
I loved this book! It was suspenseful and opened my eyes to Lyme Disease. I felt sad for Janessa and all she was going through, imagining if I was in her situation how I would feel. The ending had a great twist, which made me not want to put the book down. I hope there will be a sequel in the future. I would definitely recommend this book if you like to read books that put you on the edge of your seat. . . wondering what's going to happen next!
