evolution that I found surprisingAs for the killerview spoilerI had a niggling thought that Charlie was the killer at the beginning of the book and the I read the I knew he had to be I just didn t know how hide spoiler This romance was well written and had me wanting to keep reading The thing that impressed me the most was the romance was not based mostly on physical attraction I m not sure that God would allow Christians to be forced into the kind of relationship they had but given the circumstance the author handled it very well At first they loved from choice than frommotion and worked to make their relationship better They admired and then loved ach other because of strength of character not because of the color of their yes or sexual attraction I really The Social Machine: Designs for Living Online enjoyed this book I ve read others by colleen coble and some I venjoyed reading than others she always combines a little romance with a lot of suspense and in this book she does that again keeps you guessing as to who is behind Collision Course: Endless Growth on a Finite Planet everything The only thing I thought was cheesy was just how conveniently she had the characters all connected it just so happened that the main character Allie was related to the guy who owned the ranch thatmployed the guy who her dead husband told her to contact in case something happened AND that ranch also was for kids with motional problems which was perfect for her daughter who hadn t spoken in a year after witnessing the death of her grandparents If that weren t nough the ranch is also connected t Design Research: Methods and Perspectives enough the ranch is also connected If that weren tnough the ranch is also connected the person who is harrassing Allie as well A little too conveniently pulled together but that aside it was a good read Now suspense is not my number one go to genre but I love the way Colleen Coble presents itI
