Blog Tour: Saving Hope (Review)

Child prostitution, human trafficking and the dark side of humanity, are just a few of the issues Margaret Daley weaves into her newest release, Saving Hope, from Abingdon Press.

Through the eyes of a wounded young woman, a school director with a heart of gold and a brave Texas Ranger, Daley has created a story that is full of numerous twists and turns.

A bit "deeper" than Daley's offerings through other publishers, grabbed me at the beginning - and kept me engaged as I tried to figure out who was really the "bad guy."

I'll admit I suspected one person, only to find out he/she (not going to spoil it) was a victim as well.

If there's one thing I would have changed, I wish Daley would have had a bit more "closure" at the end. The book rushed to the conclusion with a crashing speed. When it was over, it was over. (But everything was resolved, so I guess, the good stuff was in the "chase.")

In all though, this was a fun read. The romance isn't too heavy - in fact it's more of a suspense novel, than romance. It shows the struggle that fathers have when relating to their daughters, the things people will do for a friend, the pain evil people can cause in the pursuit of greed and the strength that can be found through faith.

In all, it's a solid three and a half out of five. Saving Hope is set for a March 2012 release (but Amazon says it will be available as of Feb. 11. I'm going to enjoy checking out the next book in the series: Shattered Silence, set for an October 2012 release.
