Book Review: Not This Time
The book opens with Detective Jeff Myers walking in late to a wedding only to find everyone unconscious on the floor. The plastic groom has been ripped away from the bride on the cake topper. Soon after, it becomes clear that one of the guest’s husband has been kidnapped for ransom. But whether this is a simple abduction for money or part of a much more complicated terrorist plot to obtain something else entirely will have everyone speculating for quite some time.
This speculation took up much of the book, which made it feel slow for a time. Once speculation began to yield to solid answers, however, the pace picked up. The endings for Beth and for Sara and for all the familiar women of the Crossroads Crisis Center were just as they needed to be. I was thankful for the opportunity to read all three of these stories in their unique setting.
Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers sent a complimentary copy of Not This Time for my honest review. You can read my reviews of the first two books in the series by clicking here or here.
