|Great book, not as good as her series books but really good. Feb 2, 2010|
|Personally, I like her books that are written in series but this book really touched my heart. I really enjoyed reading it and it was really suspenseful. Good, easy read.|
|Well written, realistic, great characters Jan 8, 2010|
|I think the author did an awesome job sharing through excellently written fiction the very real heartache of addiction and its effects. She writes from both the parent's and the teenager's point of view with equal poignancy. I found the Christian faith- and doubts- of the characters well integrated into the story and totally believable. |
I'm not easy to please when it comes to fiction- but this book had me engaged. I would recommend it.
|Another wonderful book by Terri Blackstock Dec 29, 2009|
|Just when you think that Terri Blackstock couldn't possibly write anything better than her previous work, she out does herself. This is another wonderfully written book. I love how she always uses real life problems in her books. It makes you seem just like you're there living and breathing what you're reading. I picked it up one day and couldn't put it down til I had finished it that night! |
|Great book Dec 28, 2009|
|This was the firsst book i read by Terri Blackstock and I loved it. Good from page one to the end. Story is emotional and mystery keeps you reading. This book willgrab your attention right away and keep you eager to finish. I read it all in one sitting. I can't wait to read more by this author.|
|Disappointed with "Intervention" Dec 26, 2009|
|First of all, I enjoy Christian fiction when well-written and engaging. I am over halfway through this book and I keep hoping it will get better. The main characters, Barbara Covington and her son Lance are on a mission to find their daughter and sister Emily, who disappears while enroute to a detox/rehab center. The interventionist is murdered and Emily is the prime suspect.|
The writing seems repetitive and overly simplistic and the characters do not engage me at all. It is a book I pick up and hope that I will begin to enjoy; however life is too short to read bad books and I feel I will abandon this one.
Terri Blackstock is a favorite of mine with her series "Restoration" and I thought this would also be great. Not so. I recommend the "Restoration" series by Blackstock highly. The characters were very engaging and real. I felt a real sense of caring and wanting to know what happened next and eagerly picked up the book to find out. Not the same here.
I do not see where there is much mention in the book of faith or God or Christianity as some readers have said, and I am over halfway through. Maybe that comes later on.
This one by Blackstock is a "miss" for me. I also have "Double Minds" by this author and I hope it is better. Not recommended.
