Book Review: Sins of The Past

In Dee Henderson‘s Missing, a Wyoming sheriff is called to Chicago when his elderly mother goes missing. Paired with a savvy Chicago cop, the two realize her disappearance is no accident, and a race against the clock begins.

Dani Pettrey returns to Alaska with Shadowed, introducing readers to the parents of her beloved McKenna clan. Adventure, romance, and danger collide when a young fisherman nets the body of an open-water swimming competitor who may actually be a possible Russian defector.

Lynette Eason‘s Blackout delivers the story of a woman once implicated in a robbery gone wrong. The loot has never been found — but her memory of that night has always been unreliable. Can she remember enough to find her way to safety when the true culprit comes after her?

 

Dee Henderson is the author of 14 best-selling novels, including the acclaimed O’Malley series and the Uncommon Heroes series.

She feels blessed to write inspirational romantic suspense because it incorporates so many things she loves — the thrill of adventure, nail-biting suspense, the deepening of her characters’ faith, and plenty of romance. She and her husband reside in Maryland, where they enjoy time with their two daughters, a son-in-law, and a super adorable grandson.

My Impressions:

February is the month for love and romance, and when a story is paired with action-packed suspense, well, you really cannot go wrong. The 3-novella collection, Sins of The Past has all that and more — the wonderful writing of not 1, not 2, but 3!! of the best romantic suspense authors in Christian fiction. When you dive into this book you are in for a sweet treat! You get tough and determined heroines, hunky heroes with a soft side, and twists and turns that make the pages fly. The only down side? You’ll be done with this book in no time and be yearning for more!

I loved that each novella was classic Henderson, Pettrey and Eason. In Missing, the reader returns to Chicago to solve the case of a missing mom. In Shadowed, the reader gets the low-down on the McKenna’s parents romantic beginning, as well as adrenaline-fueled suspense. And in Blackout, the reader will be on the edge of her seat trying to figure out just what the main characters are missing. Characters are easy to like, and the plots will keep you guessing. The common thread of a sin from the past that plagues the main characters is a clever way of linking the stories.

So if you are looking for the perfect Valentine’s read, I highly recommend you pick up Sins of The Past. I loved it and I am betting you will too!

Highly Recommended.

Audience: adults.
