Flee the Night

I have decided to begin reading for pleasure again to replace all the TV I was watching. I searched for a few weeks for the book I wanted to start with and landed on "Flee the Night," a romantic suspense by Christian writer Susan May Warren.

I absolutley loved the book. It takes place present day with ex-CIA agent Lacey Montgomery becoming injured in an accident in which her young daughter goes missing. She has to enilist the help of Jim Micah, an estranged friend and ex-Green Beret, who believes that she has murdered her own husband. The book deals with how believing lies can destroy your relationships with others and with God and how that God is always with you even in your darkest moments.

The book is the first in a series of three. The next one is called "Escape to Morning" followed by "Expect the Sunrise." All are found on Susan's website where you can also read the prequel to the series, "Waiting for Dawn."

I enjoyed the flow of the book, especially how the author was abe to go back in time on several occassions to reveal even more about the characters. She did an excellent job of switching to the different minds of each as well. It was definitley a quick read and fairly easy to understand. I don't enjoy getting lost in excessive detail, and this book was not excessive. I do plan to read the second one soon and hope to write more reviews as well. Please feel free to give me your book suggestions, too.

Ack, that sounds like a great book! Another one to add to my ever-growing list of books and authors I'd like to read. Like Lauren, I hadn't heard of these books before, but I will definitely look for them.

Be sure to let us know what you think of any others you read. I love getting good book reviews and recommendations :)
