A Modern Day Fairy Tale

Faith. Family. Fiction. Fun.

Always Look Twice {A Book Review}

**I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for consideration. All thoughts are 100% my own. 

At the advice of her therapist, homicide survivor Harper Reynolds has traded her job as a crime scene photographer for a more peaceful life taking photographs of the natural world. But her hopes for a life surrounded by the serenity of the outdoors are dashed when she inadvertently captures a murder being committed in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. She flees the scene in fear--and loses the camera.

Former Green Beret Heath McKade is a reserve deputy in an understaffed county who has been called in to protect Harper, a childhood friend he is surprised to see back in the area. When Harper learns that the sheriff's department can't find any evidence of the murder she witnessed, she is determined to do what she can to see that justice is done. What neither Harper nor Heath could know is how many explosive secrets from the past will be exposed--or how deeply they will fall for each other.

In this suspenseful page-turner, bestselling author Elizabeth Goddard keeps you on the edge of your seat as you discover that uncommon justice lies just on the other side of fear.

Elizabeth Goddard is the bestselling author of more than 30 books, including Never Let Go and the Carol Award-winning The Camera Never Lies. Her Mountain Cove series books have been finalists in the Daphne du Maurier Awards and the Carol Awards. Goddard is a seventh-generation Texan and can be found online at www.elizabethgoddard.com.

Always Look Twice is the second book in Elizabeth Goddard's Uncommon Justice series. While I had read and would certainly recommend reading that first book-Never Let Go- as well, I would say that this is great as a stand-alone too. I didn't see any moments throughout that in any way made it feel like you were starting in the middle and missing any backstory.

From the very start, this book captured my attention. We meet photographer Harper Reynolds. Having left her job as a crime scene photographer, she is finding much needed peace in photographing wildlife... until she witnesses a murder through the lens of her camera that is! And that's just within the first chapter. The action and adventure only continued from there! Twists and turns at every turn of the page kept me captivated and wanting to find out how it all came together in the end. One thing that made this story really great is that there was suspicion cast in various directions so though I would start to figure it out, there was always that little bit of doubt. It is mentioned in the story that the villain liked to plant fake clues to throw off the authorities, and in a way that is just what Elizabeth Goddard did within the story as well. I absolutely loved it.

This is a Christian romantic suspense, but I would say that this this particular book the suspense was front and center. At times, I perhaps would have liked to see even more of the romance--- certainly there but playing a background role to the suspense. Likewise, there was some talk of God/faith here and there throughout the story, but not overwhelmingly so. I think this is one that even those who don't typically read Christian fiction could be drawn to for that reason.

Overall, it was a really great read! I look forward to more from this author, and I hope from this series too! If you love a good, clean romantic suspense, this is certainly a must read.

Always Look Twice is available to purchase on October 1. You can preorder your copy now.
