Review: At times an action thriller, and at others a heart-tugging romance, Charles Martin is back with the second installment in the Murphy Shepherd series.
Picking up in the previous book, Murph continues to risk his life to safe the one, but when the traffickers target his newfound family he will stop at nothing to bring them home.
Filled with moments of non-stop action mixed with heartwarming moments, this book never stops for breath. I liked how we get to learn more about the inner workings of Free Town, as well as Murph's backstory. The story is nothing short of cinematic and larger than life, compelling and action packed, it is a difficult book to put down. Christian faith is alluded to, but not discussed plainly. Though not overly explicit this book talks about human trafficking in honest terms as well as the trauma experienced by the victims.
A must read for anyone who read The Water Keeper, as it follows the same characters as they face new challenges. Heart-tugging, romantic, and heroic you won't want to miss it.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
