Any book that begins with the scripture Jeremiah 29:11-13 is going to grab my attention straight away. This formative verse is so applicable to the
wonderful story Revell creates in Wednesday’s Child.
I’m enjoying her spin on a time-honored nursery rhyme and the ways in which she
weaves each day’s verse into a spine-tingling suspense novel. (I have to admit: I’ve gotten sneak peeks at all of Clare’s covers for this
series, and Wednesday’s Child is my favorite. What an amazing, straight on depiction of the hero! But I digress…)
Liam Page is wounded.
The burdens he carries tug your heart. I love the ordained way in which he meets our more than worthy heroine, Jacqui Dorne. Their paths, we discover,
were meant to intersect—not just on a professional but on a personal level as well.
Some of my favorite stories deal with the issue of why God
allows bad things to happen to seemingly innocent people. Add to that theme the threat of a menacing villain and you have the recipe for a great
page-turner. Revell writes with a clean style and a keen sense of romance and suspense. Balancing the two can be tricky, but in her hands and heart
the combination works and engages the reader to the last page.
Revell delivers on all counts in this offering, and I look forward to
Thursday’s Child – coming soon from Pelican Book Group!
