Exciting mystery within a family of Dark Promises Mar 26, 2008
This mystery is one of the best that I have ever read. The novel weaves a tantalizing tale around a prominent family that was involved with the whole family running a Church. There is more than meets the eye, there are many dark promises and surprises that entice you and captivate you as you read it. There are secrets wound in the family so tightly that you will be surprised as they unravel. This novel should find a place in your lap and you will be pleasantly sucked into a novel that has no end of surprises to keep you reading. I enjoyed it so much that it was hard to tear me away from any one place to stop reading. Dark Promises is true to it's title, just when you think you have figured out the secret the novel will make a turn which will capture you with anticipation to find out just where it is going. This novel is one to be read and enjoyed as you try to figure out all of the many mysteries wound in and around one another. You will be surprised at the ending because you will never in a million years guess who the novel ends up with being the bad guy. Purchase this novel and I promise you several nights of reading that you will truly enjoy and feel as if you are the Detective.
An easy read mystery with some deeper messages Mar 9, 2008
This is an entertaining, easy read that could be enjoyed simply for that reason. But if you're open to further possibilities, you may find it refreshes and perhaps even challenges your level of commitment to some of life's biggies: loyalty, honesty, compassion and forgiveness...it certainly left me pondering their impact in communities and their power to change lives.
