Deadly Ties by Vicki Hinze

If you like Ted Dekker, you should like this one!  Intrigue, suspense, murder, escape are all here!  I like how Ms. Hinze weaves biblical verse and spiritual struggles throughout the book.  And while there is romance, it does not take over the main storyline.  Lots of action!

I did not think this book was particularly well written.  In the beginning, we are slammed with the names of tons of characters (all take part in the story, I'm just not sure we needed a list of them in the beginning) so that was overwhelming.  The characterization of some people seemed to contradict itself throughout the novel.  And some of what happens is unbelievable.  I know some bizarre situations happen in real life but these got a little far-fetched.

However, it still made for interesting reading so give it a shot and see what you think!  It was worth sticking with it.

Note:  I received this book free from the publisher through the book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 25.
