Rising Darkness (Review)
This review is for the book "Rising Darkness" by Nancy Mehl. This is the third book in the her Finding Sanctuary series. I had not read the other two books in this series and I felt that the story in this book was extremely easy to follow along with and understand, even without knowing the other parts of the series.
Sophie left her strict Mennonite hometown after doing something that was dangerous and a slap in the face to her community. Now she is on the road to becoming a journalist. When she meets up with an old acquaintance who claims that a murder suspect is hiding out in the Mennonite town of Sanctuary, she is skittish about going back into that type of community, but her want of a big story overrules her fear.
What are the chances she will see her old crush in Sanctuary? He is a pastor now, and it's not long before he finds out some of Sophie's secrets. Suddenly she has a few people on her side. But should she trust all of them?
I really enjoyed this story. I couldn't figure out who to trust in Sanctuary. I liked the characters and the suspense of the book. I'd like to go back and read the other books in the series now.
Thank you to Bethany House for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
