The main characters were very earnest, and they dealt with realistic issues The suspense was well written and was mainly created by the threat of physical harm to Rylee from a stalker, false accusations threatening to ruin her business, and wondering who was behind the robberies The vivid details of the setting brought the area alive in my imagination.
The Christian element mainly was a few reminders to the main characters that they needed to read the Bible, at 3 1 2 starsI received this book from LIbraryThing s Early Reviewers program.

Logan Woods is the reporter on the story for the paper He finds himself intrigued by not only the story, but also Rylee I found myself liking most of the book, but Rylee s character was a bit of a disappointment She did a number of very stupid things and it irritated me quite a bit I just didn t find myself really liking her very much Logan on the other hand, was a much better developed character He was likable The romance between the 2 was enjoyable and d What do you get when you combine Old South charm, romance, and suspense Beguiled by Deeanne Gist and Mark Bertrand.

I really enjoyed this novel however, it was rather slower The way that I would describe this book was to be a decent show that you would get into if it was on, but you wouldn t seek it out to just watch it for the pleasure of it The characters were very developed and the story line well thought out I enjoyed the complexity of the overall plot, I just wish that the climatic ending would have beenthroughout the story except for just at the very end.
Ugh I m just going to say it right up front I did not enjoy this book.
Imagine this scenario Take Christian aspiring romantic fiction novelist Combine her with an acclaimed, yet has only written one book Christian suspense writer Now have them write a book combining both of their interests suspense and describing attractive people Yeah It didn t work.
Not only was the descriptions of both Rylee and Logan cringingly awkward, but their entire romance was just ehh They were cute together and I appreciated his concern for her safety, but they went from zero to ninety in a week or two Annoyingly, unbelievably fast Obviously they were attracted to each other I had to spend half the book listening to them moon on about each other s stunning muscles, long legs, attractive figures, tempting lips, etc, etc, etc It was like a trashy romance novel turned Christian.
