This past weekend I finished reading No Safe Haven by Kimberley and Kayla R. Woodhouse. I really loved this book, though I must say the first few pages I wondered if I would get into it. At page 35 I reminded myself that I needed to give it 50 pages (my self-imposed rule), especially since I had seen several great reviews for this book.
Widow Jenna and daughter Andie's small airplane is sabotaged, and it goes down on a mountain in Alaska. Their one passenger, Cole, says he is trying to save them, but they just are not sure if he is trustworthy. Jenna's leg is seriously injured and develops infection, which at their altitude is even more dangerous. Andie has a very rare, but very life-threatening condition that does not allow her body to regulate its own temperature-when you are braving the elements in Alaska, it's even more dangerous.
The suspense builds in No Safe Haven as the reader understands the dire need of the situation. The fact that no one will be finding them except the people looking for them-to kill them- and they don't even know it.
Kimberley and Kayla R. Woodhouse, a mother-daughter team, used Kayla's own nerve disorder that prevents her from regulating body temperature and sensing pain to make this book very real and the suspense very real. I really enjoyed this book. The only thing that was predictable was the bit of romance that developed.
I found the twelve year old, Andie's faith to be incredibly bold-yet realistic. This book has a clear message of God's love for the worst of us while providing a very good suspense novel!
Thank you, B&H Publishing for providing me with a copy for review purposes!
