By Andrea Renee CoxI was so excited that Beth Moore was releasing her first novel, but it never occurred to me that it would feature such worldly things as tarot cards, an abortion, multiple pregnancies out of wedlock, and using the Lord s name in vain That last one at the very least is inexcusable, especially coming from one of the leaders on the evangelical circuit today.I was really hopeful about this story, but unfortunately I m closing its cover with a large case of disappointment.Note Befo [...]

    14. Beth Moore is a huge name in Christian non fiction, specifically to women s ministry, so there was immediate name recognition when I received this book for review Her first fictional work was an ambitious endeavor to say the least but as a whole missed the mark of a novel worth recommending, in my opinion She still shines in her masterful skill in biblical story retellings and delivering nuggets of Christian living wisdom i.e The pain of a hard goodbye is the heart s tribute to the privilege of [...]

    17. My review is based on an ARC sample from NetGalley With sample ARCs, ratings end up being based on the first few chapters and that is not enough to give a true rating and review.That being said, my librarian gut says that this little mystery will be a hit Beth Moore has a Gift of weaving words together and her non fiction, bestselling, books attest to that fact Moore has now taken a leap of faith and ventured into the fiction world, and I don t think readers will be disappointed.The story immedi [...]

    21. Beth Moore has another hit This book was very enjoyable I have participated in many Beth Moore bible studies and have enjoyed and learned from each one This book was fast paced with interesting characters and a great plot Not to preaching for non believers but enough information to interest any who are looking for a relationship with Jesus I hope Beth continues to write fiction
