Another super fast read, though this one took me a bit longer than “Dead Reckoning”. Totally loved it! I think this is the best book I’ve read by Deeanne Gist (haven’t read any by J. Mark Bertrand).
I think the title and cover of the book were a bit deceiving. The two, especially combined, made me reluctant to read the book. In fact, the only reason I went ahead and bought it was because I was familiar with Deeanne Gist from reading some of her other books. Guess it really is true that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover.
I liked the characters of Logan Woods and Rylee Monroe a lot, but I also liked Logan’s parents — especially his dad. Mr. Woods was confident in his son’s ability to make wise decisions — even when they weren’t the decisions he would have made himself — and didn’t try to push him to change his mind. He encouraged his son, but also cautioned him. I think more dad’s should be like that. Anyway, I really liked him; he was one of my favorite characters. Though he didn’t play a huge roll in the story, his part was still significant.

Oh, how true that is…
