When an author has more then 85 books, well you know that you are sitting down to read a great book.
This one however was very slow starting out and it was very hard to hold my attention. A little over half way through is started to pick up and I was able to read it all. From the middle to the end was good and you will enjoy it so just give it time.
Marty was hard to connect with for me for some reason. This could be why I had such a hard time. It very well could have just been me.
I gave this book 3.5 stars.  It was not Peterson's best work but it is worth the read.
This review is just my opinion and my not be the same as yours.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.


  1. I like to read a book that grabs my attention right from the beginning. However, this book does sound like it might be just an O.K. book to read. The story line sounds like other books that I have read. I trust in Mary's reviews, so this book would probably get put on my maybe list.

  2. I haven't read anything by this author yet. Thank you for your honest review Mary! We depend on your reviews!

  5. I'd still very much like to read this book. I love Tracie's books so even if this one isn't as good as some, I'm sure that I'll enjoy it.
