reader Entangled Fredrickson Winery

Entangled Fredrickson Winery #1 F her childhood is a mystery she intends to solve But digging up her past also lays bare the skeletons of others including her moth The cover is kind of dark so I'm not fond of it but it does show that there is some darkness to this suspenseful novel However a light shining through the grape leaves would have depicted the heart of the story because the light from discovering the truth casts away the darkness and provides healing While this story had its terrifying moments it left me feeling good at the end because of the resolution and healing message that was thank God not sappy or forced I loved that uite often suspense stories leave me scratching my head because the resolution was not believable or the great revelation seemed staged This story flowed naturally The tension built and built until there was nothing left but the inevitable explosion And what a bang it carried I was truly impressedGiven my background of working with sick o people for several decades I had a feeling there was some stuff in the past that would come to light I love when my instincts are spot on but that also tells me that the author knew how to frame a believable scenario Not many authors do that so convincingly that my gut says yep that's just what it would look like too The author did a great job with the whole mystery and suspense She also tied in a great romance with Handel who was not only a childhood friend but a very heroic figure in this story I wanted to cuddle up next him when I got scared along with the heroine Well doneThe coolest part of this story is that while published by the author the craft part of the storytelling was impressive This could easily have been published by a big publishing house It was that well done Just so you know it's worth way than the 299 the author is charging for her kindle edition of her novel I'd easily pay 999 for it because the uality of the writing and storytelling is so good There is nothing too sick or crass for the average reader to enjoy and nothing to make a Christian's conscience cringe There are a few minor cuss words and an occasional glass of wine but she is living at a winery so it fits the setting The heroine's memories that are pretty realistic but that just makes the story powerful I highly recommend this book
