What a great book! The author has a wonderful 'feel' about her. This book is less about scriptures guiding you to make decisions, and much more about finding out who you are, and how that affects your decision making. There is such a thing as decision fatigue, and many of us suffer from it. Whether it be a major life decision like changing careers, or a simple thing like what color to paint the bedroom, this book will help you sort through it! Lots of personal anecdotes from the author sharing about her own life and decisions, which are a wonderful addition. I highly recommend this book to high school grads, college grads, those thinking of getting married...pretty much every person can benefit from this book. Highly recommended!

I really enjoyed the beginning of this book. I love the fact that the author addresses mental illness in several ways. I liked the main characters and thought they were true-to-life.
Where the story went downhill for me was mostly the interaction between the main character and her family. I know rich and political families all have issues and expectations. I just felt like the storyline between them wasn't realistic. I know there has to be conflict to drive a storyline, but I felt like a lot of the conflict was driven by unrealistic choices and logic by the characters. Things that could've been settled easily were drug out for conflict's sake.
Also the plot with the villain and events relating to that just didn't seem to fit for me. I did really enjoy the author's storytelling, and really loved the first half of the book. But after that my interest waned. I figured out who the bad guy was long before the end, and kind of rushed through the rest of the book.
I would check out more books in this series because I did enjoy the writing style. For a debut novel this author has done really well. I am sure her writing will only improve from here. I do recommend this Christian mystery!
