My personal Rating-
Hm. Why is it always that when the love interest (or possible love interest in this book’s case) has another possible love interest beside the main character that person is always catty and rude? I thankfully don’t see it too often in Christian Fiction, but I’m always disappointed when I do. While the actual mystery of this book felt like it too a back-seat to the romance/not-romance of Anne and Alex, I did like all the parts about Ben and Ryan’s tree house. Not my favorite in this series, but it was still clean in the content.  

See y’all on Friday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
