I absolutely loved this book Perfect amount of faith, romance, and drama all blended into one Luke and Sara s story was full of trials, troubles, and turmoil and so many unexpected twists Clare Revell is fast becoming one of my favorite authors Can t wait to read about the rest of the children. This book is darling yet daring and very elaborate The author has come up with such a concept of quite a series using the children s poem The exciting bullet ride starts right off in the beginning when the main character Sara was with her husband and he is murdered and she was a witness to it but she wasn t suppose to be but GOD saved her She had to go into WItSEC in Scotland The cover story was she was married to Luke an American detective now Sara was not very pleasant and not a rule follower and that causes a lot of problems for Luke to keep her safe from the men who wanted to finish killing her when her husband was killed or was her hmmm I shall never tell so with GODs help Luke show compassion to Sara and then you wont believe what happens SaraI can t tell you what happens that will spoil the book for you you have to go and buy the book because it is an incredible rollercoaster ride of twist and turns guesses and answers You fall in love and you cry with the characters you feel the pain and you feel the love of GOD healing the heart isn t HE so good I received this book for an honest review Murder and mayhem The life of the heroine and her unborn child in danger A guardian determined to protect her as well as do right in God s eyes Monday s Child has all the right ingredients for a action packed, heart tugging story of love and rebirth The first book in this series kicks off intriguing suspense tales based on a nursery rhyme. Really easy read I think it would a good love story for a Christian teen It s nice to read a book with good morals. First, I am blown away by the whole concept of this series Absolutely genius Kudos to the author for ingenuity Then again, I ve not questioned Revell s caliber as an author since the first time I read one of her books She s a gifted storyteller, great at developing a plot, and has a good handle on the mechanics of writing As something a little extra that I always like, Revell s sense of humor never overdone or misplaced adds a neat little zip to the reading pleasure.MONDAY S CHILD provides an interesting mixture of ethnicities a stubborn British heroine in the Witness Protection program, and an American cop hero whose job it is to keep Sara out of harm s way , posing as a married couple and living in a safe house in Scotland with neither of them any too happy about the situation Sara Barnes is still pining over the loss of her husband Luke Nemec s an FBI agent who s accustomed to being in the field, not babysitting a hardheaded female who won t stick to the rules, making it a challenge to keep her alive But since that s his assignment, he s determined to keep her safe in spite of her antics.Needless to say, it s a wild ride Sara had me wishing Luke would turn her over his knee and give her the punishment she so richly deserved a couple of times, but since our hero was blessed with a great deal patience than I am Sara managed to avoid a sound walloping Luke s constant gentleness in the face of her snippy attitude and persistent bending of the rules is a testimony to the sincerity of his faith and personal integrity A beautifully written sweet romance with a nice little thread of suspense and a wee bit o humor that makes it a fun read Can t wait to dive into the next day of the week Clare Revell does it again Monday s Child begins with a bang, literally After Sara Barnes witnesses the death of her husband on their honeymoon, she s swallowed into the witness protection program Newly widowed and recovering from her wounds, Sara Barnes doesn t like being caged and lashes out at her protectors Lt Luke Nemec, Sara s protector, doesn t take her barbs personally Instead, he provides ways for her not to feel so cooped up and showers Sara with kindness and attentiveness, so the romance progresses naturally Ms Revell introduced some friends with a Scottish brogue, which I was initially nervous about, but after a bit, I hardly noticed.From the beautiful cover, you can tell that the story is set on a coast Ms Revell crafted scenes in such a way that I could almost feel the salty ocean breeze against my face Packed with action and laced with faith, this romance builds excitement for the next book in the series of seven romantic suspense novels based on a rewrite of the popular nursery rhyme, Monday s Child.I ve also enjoyed several other books by Ms Revell, such as Saving Christmas, Cassie s Wedding Dress, Kisses from Heaven, and After the Fire Congratulations, Clare Revell.
