Holiday Ilusion by Lynette Eason Love Inspired Suspense Nov 08
Another excellent book for my Top 10 list. What I really liked about this well written story was that the author pulled me in. Of course, I knew who the bad guy was but it still held my interest. Did I really know anything, though? A surprise twist hit me broadside. It was all so clear once I knew the complete picture. The author ensured not a single loose end from even the tiniest thread was left hanging.
I also loved the way the author weaved the salvation story, prayer and scripture into the story. A part of their lives, but never obtrusive.
Years ago, Anna Freeman ran for her life from her hometown but when she's asked to go back, she realizes she wants to stop running. She doesn’t have to, but a sick little boy needs someone to accompany him and Anna feels it’s time to face her fears. She’s accompanying Dr. Lucas and wonders if their 'just friends' relationship will change back on American soil. Not that she wants it to, but a woman can always dream.
Dr. Lucas Bennett is thrilled when Anna decides to accompany them to the States. He’s had his eye on her for awhile but he’s been hiding out in the Amazonian jungle and can’t change their relationship until he mends the rift he has with his father.
It’s just that as soon as Anna lands, she’s been pursued again and keeping her alive is foremost on his mind.
