Review: Counter Point by Marji Laine

cpcoverfCounter Point was an exciting story and the start of a new series. This novel has so much going for it: action, danger, romance, as well as questions of faith. There were many great characters in this book and I really enjoyed the hometown the the author created for Ray and Cat.

Counter Point had bunches of action and got off to a very exciting beginning right from the start. Not knowing who to trust, what the extent of the danger was, and uncertainty about Ray’s feelings for her made things pretty complicated for the main character, Cat.

It was interesting to see the difficulties both Ray and Cat had with understanding what God had in store for them. They both struggled with seeing how He was using them and the way He wanted them to move forward.

I enjoyed Counter Point and look forward to reading future books in the series.

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

cpcoverfSomeone is determined to finish a murdered hit man’s final assignment.

Her father’s gone. Her diner’s closing. Her car’s in the lake. Cat McPherson has nothing left to lose. Except her life. And a madman’s bent on taking that away.

Her former boyfriend, Ray Alexander, returns as a hero from his foreign mission, bringing back souvenirs in the form of death-threats. When several attempts are made on Cat’s life, she must find a way to trust Ray, the man who broke her heart.

Keeping Cat safe from a fallen cartel leader might prove impossible for Ray, but after seeing his mission destroyed and several godly people killed, he knows better than to ignore the man’s threats. Cat’s resistance to his protection and the stirring of his long-denied feelings for her complicate his intentions, placing them both in a fight for their lives.

Can she survive when ultimate power wants her dead?
