"Maybe Mr Petersen's God had a sense of humor and had reached through the universe to tickle her funny bone."
A chance circumstance puts Chloe at the beach at the same time Rob Stevens is frantically searching for his missing son. Devastation hits when they are too late to save the young boy. But Chloe can't seem to leave Rob alone - wanting to be there for him now that he has no one left. Both are dealing with grief and pain -looking for direction. Mr Petersen offers comfort and friendship - teaching Chloe about religion and reminding Rob of what he grew up with. But when it seems that someone is out to kill Rob, things speed up. Will Chloe and Rob be able to figure out who is trying to kill him, and what is really worth living for?
My Opinion: I'd like to say that this was a decent book, but I had a hard time finding things in this book that were enjoyable. The characters, though well written, were not good people with little to no redeeming qualities. I found that the main characters seemed to take no responsibility for their own past actions, nor did they react realistically to the events that unfolded. Their romance was almost non-existent, though apparently they did fall in love. The religious aspect was overwhelming and very preachy. It almost felt like two stories, one about the mystery and adventure and the other half about a woman learning the basics of a new faith. Not that it's a bad thing, but it was really out of place in a fiction novel. Overall it was a book that left me depressed - not something I look for in a romance.
I received a free copy of this book to review. No other compensation was given. The summary and opinion are 100% my own.
