Elijah Moon, his sons, his beautiful daughter Gracie and their families are trying to dwell simply in this modern world. Living off the land in rural Kentucky, they adhere closely to the words of the Bible. But there is more going on at their compound than either Elijah or Gracie realises. In fact, a man has been killed for knowing too much. When the victim's twin, Jake Baretta, arrives at the compound to search for his twin's killer, he struggles to keep his heart and attraction to Gracie to himself, and his mind on the job. Everyone knows the first rule of undercover work: Never fall in love with enemy.
I picked this up on a whim. I knew nothing about it other than it's by Dinah and I love her writing.  I started reading and I was hooked.  The very beginning I was screaming inside for them to use the solution we now know works and often use, I was so hooked the second I realized the nurse was going to do it and I just fell into this book.  Time flew and I wasn't even aware of it.  I was totally addicted and I didn't want this to end.

This was clearly written at a different time due to lack of cellphones however that doesn't detract from the overall story.  This is a story of revenge and justice and such a good love story. I couldn't stop reading, I cried a few times in this book with the characters and I must say I love Angie so much she is so wise and wonderful to her family and those in her life.  Just amazing.  I can't imagine what it is like to lose the other half of your soul but to still have to keep going.

Told in alternating perspectives, from the villain to the people surrounding them and of course the main characters we get an amazing story about one man's need to know the truth and a woman's desire to find her place even while surrounded by family.

Moving quickly; the unfolding of the motivation of the killer and all the action moves so well.  I loved how both men knew without a doubt that Gracie was a woman caught up in something she didn't even understand.  I was so saddened for the conclusion because to be family and put in that position all because one person was too greedy and too unhinged.

It's good, I loved that the romance was good and went within characters behaviour, I loved how neither of them were suddenly blind or stupid, they moved well together and separately.  This story unfolded with all the mystery there with parts being revealed to us then to the characters, and as each piece was found out it just built the tension.  Really well written, addictive and a fast read.
I highly recommend, 
Happy Reading my loves,
