Enjoyable! 'Clear Confusion' - by Kathy M. Howard
About the book:
What am I going to do, God? Who am I?
Charlotte Hallaway needs to come to terms with her father's death. He had been her only family, and she wasn't handling her grief well. It was just supposed to be a few weeks of peace and quiet to process it all, but then she saw them-a drug deal and a murder within seconds of each other.
And they saw her.
Now running for her life, Charlotte boards a bus to escape her pursuers and wakes up the next morning in the woods of Jennings, Georgia, without a memory of how she got there or of who she is. All she knows is an underlying fear she can't seem to shake.
When two hunters find her battered and scared, can she put aside the clear confusion she's experiencing to trust them? She wants to trust them, especially Nicholas, but fear is holding her back. Trust is incredibly hard when one is so clearly confused. Could it be he and his friend are not who they claim to be?
Who are they really . . . and who is she?
This was a suspenseful story that really grabs your attention from the beginning! I couldn't imagine how terrifying it would be to wake up in the woods not knowing who you were or how you got there. I actually didn't remember what this story was about so I didn't find out for a while what she was doing there or how she got there, which made it even more suspenseful! I admired her strength as she grapples with this and then when she does find out, how she deals with it as the trauma isn't over. Her faith was such a strong part of that and the one thing she knew about herself, that she knew the Lord and loved Him. Both her and Nicholas had a strong faith and I loved how that was a foundation for them. I was glad to see a clear gospel message given and many references to prayer and depending on the Lord. I also admired her grace and forgiveness in dealing with one of the bad guys. Nicholas was such a great guy and had a wonderful attitude about life. There was also a little bit of romance and action. After such a suspenseful start the story did get a little too slow in the middle but I liked it overall. I would recommend this story if you like romantic suspense!
I received this book from JustRead Tours. I was not compensated for this review. All opinions are my own.
