About the book:
The day Danielle Harding takes her eleven-year-old son and flees from her abusive husband is the same day Kurt Harding dies. A relieved Dani believes she and her son are finally safe-but in reality, things are just heating up. When Kurt was alive, he took something important from a mysterious individual-who wants the item back and believes Dani now has it. As she and her son run from their lives, they have nowhere to turn, until she hires Adam Buchanan of Operation Refuge and goes into hiding. Unfortunately, she won't be able to hide for long...

My take:
I felt like this book was a decent read. I didn't fall in love with it like I thought I would. It did wonder how the outcome was going to be, but to the point to where I just wanted to get to the end. I guess you could say, I didn't really want to go on the journey with the characters to find the ending. With that said, I am still glad that I read the book. I guess I had higher expectations of it.

The story shows how determined a person can be to get from under a cruel and hard life to make it better for themselves and those that they care about. Plenty of women are caught in the situation that Dani (the lead character) found herself in, but with the strength and determination she is able to at least make the journey.

The author's writing style is very descriptive. This is what I liked most about the story. I feel like if you can picture everything in the story, down to lets say the way someone is dressed, then you know you are reading a book by someone who "knows" how to write. I was able to visualize what I perceived as what was going on and what all the character's looked like. Like I stated before, it is not a bad book. I think a lot of people would enjoy reading it. It just didn't hold my attention the way that I thought it would.

This complimentary book was given to me by Revell in exchange for my honest review.
