She came to America searching for her brother. Instead all she's found is a web of danger. Cara Hamilton had thought her brother to be dead. Now, clutching his letter, she leaves Ireland for America, desperate to find him. Her search leads her to a houseful of curious strangers, and one man who claims to be a friend- Rourke Walsh. Despite her brother's warning, Cara trusts Rourke, revealing her true purpose in coming to New York.
She's then thrust into a world with subterfuge, veiled threats and attempted murder, including political revolutionaries from the homeland out for revenge. Her questions guider her even nearer to locating her brother-but they also bring her closer to destruction- as those who want to kill him track her footsteps. With her faith in tatters, all hope flees. Will her brother finally surface? Can he save Cara from the truth about Rourke...a man she's grown to love?
There were several things that drew me to this novel that should not make one lick of difference! The first was that the author is a fellow Texan. I will always, ALWAYS support my fellow Texans. The second is that Cara and her brother are twins. This doesn't play into the story at all, but since I am mom to a pair of twins, stories that include them always interest me. And the third reason I was drawn to this book...which incidentally does matter...is that this would be my first Christian suspense novel. I am a huge suspense fan, but honestly I did not know the genre existed within the Inspirational market.
All of that said, I was thoroughly pleased with this novel. It was an easy read, that took me just a few days time to get through. This was definitely a page turner. I was unsure of Rourke the whole novel, was he going to disappoint Cara in the end? Or would things turn out the way she hoped since she had fallen hard for him? It was a fun ride to see what happened all along the way as we meet other characters and find out not everyone is who they seem. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys being on the edge of their seat and enjoys a few twists and turns along the way. There is also a love story, so I would recommend this as well to those enjoy that sort or thing.
