There is a lot going on in this book, interweaving the past with the present, bringing the tension of current suspense as well how the secrets of the past impact what is going on in the present in Rae and Liam's relationship. I liked how Liam and Rae are a great team, and though they can be opposites they compliment each other better than you'd think at first glance. The action was tight, but there was also time for great character development and relationship growth.
Overall a fantastically thrilling read from beginning to end, this book works well as a stand alone, as well as a companion part of the series. I like how the heavier backstory was well woven throughout the story, so it didn't ever feel like information dumping, and I was always eager to find out more. There are strong theme of faith, family and forgiveness throughout. This book sealed the deal for me, I'm a huge fan of this author and can't wait to see what she has coming out next!
