I love to find new authors who write Christian fiction. It's so exciting to discover a gem you didn't know existed, one that makes you stay up well past your bedtime because you can't put their book down. Last month, I started one of Linda J. White's books and I couldn't put it down.
I had the opportunity to meet this author at a conference this year, and purchased Bloody Point at a book signing. When I turned to the first page of Linda's book I couldn't wait to delve into the work of someone I'd met. I love suspense, and this novel was in that category. From the first page, I knew I wasn't getting any sleep that night. I'm a night owl by nature, so it was no surprise to me that the fast pace of this storyline was going to keep me up.
Right away, I liked the characters and cared what happened to them. To my writing friends, we all know how important it is that our characters are likeable. I was intriqued by the back story to Cassie McKenna, the main character.
The detail Linda used to show the community at marinas and life aboard a ship was new to me. I had no before hand knowledge, yet she made it all so easy to imagine. And the insight into FBI protocol and work was also intriguing and very realistic.
This fast-paced novel won five out of five stars with me. If you haven't had an opportunity to read any of her books, it's well worth your time.
