 Color of Danger
 By Alexa Verde

Luke couldn’t save his fiancée from the Smiling Killer, but he’ll do anything to prevent more murders, even ask for help from the serial killer’s sister. Finding a kindred tortured soul in Mari, Luke is determined to keep her alive, but it’s not easy to protect the stubborn ex-rebel.
To solve the mystery, renew her faith, and find love and redemption, Mari has to face her most dangerous enemy — herself.
“One of the best Christian romantic suspense novels I’ve ever read.” – JoAnn Durgin, JoAnn Durgin, USA Today bestselling author

My Thoughts:

  For those who love a book full of suspense and mystery, look no further! This is the perfect read for you!!  From the opening page to the end, I was  caught up and lived in Rio Azules, alongside the characters, totally embroiled in the trials, fears and life threatening situations. It is hard to believe that this author is relatively new to writing. Her talent in grabbing your attention and keeping it is outstanding.

The characters were extremely well developed in such a way that I became part of each of them. Every fear, worry and confused thought became mine. The main character, Mari was a unique woman who had gone through more in her life than any of us can even dream of. More important was the author's talent of showing the growth of Mari's self esteem , not only able to accept herself  as she is but to also accept God's grace , helping her to become a better person, one who cares deeply not only for others, but for herself. 

The plot development was excellent ! It moved quickly and steadily, keeping me on the edge of my seat, with my heart throbbing.  Around every corner were unexpected twists and turns. Just when I thought that I had the mystery figured out,  another obstacle appeared in the  path. All I can say is "WOW!"  A mysterious killer was on the loose!!  Who was this person?  How did he/she stay so hidden?? Who would be next in the killer's path??

The rather delicate subject of child abuse was handled in a sensitive, understanding fashion.  Trust issues caused by this background is evident throughout the story. The strong Christian emphasis was present throughout the terrorizing events. God is always with us. Even at our lowest and most hopeless times, He is with us.

This is definitely a five star book!! I am eagerly awaiting this author's next creation in this Rio Azules Trilogy.  Please, Alexa, don' t make me wait to long! This was an AWESOME book!!
