    Wow, what an excellent, suspenseful book! Every time I had to put this book down, I couldn't wait to be able to pick it back up, especially at the end. This is my first book I've read by this author and it will certainly not be my last. I can't wait to read Tuesday's Child! What I Liked: This book was quite enjoyable. This mystery set in relatively modern times dealing with what happened in WW2 kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't the fastest paced mystery ever, but that was okay with me.

This mystery set in relatively modern times dealing with what happened in WW2 kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't the fastest paced mystery ever, but that was okay with me. The author definitely threw in a couple curve balls into the story and I enjoyed reading the side stories of the main characters as they struggled spiritually. On that specific note, the Christian message was woven seamlessly into this story while being strong. I really appreciated the fact that Linda Lee Chaikin included many Scriptures as Krista was reminded that her identity was found in Christ, not in her beauty. It was also neat to see the second main character, Jorden Keller, begin the journey to recognizing Jesus as the Messiah. The story itself was very intriguing and it definitely held my attention from beginning to end. What I Didn't Like: I will admit that you had to pay close attention to what was going on in the story, or else you would miss an important detail. There were a couple times I had to go back and re-read a paragraph just to make sure I was aware of what was going on in the story. Also, the time period that this book took place in was a little fuzzy to me. I finally figured it out due to the publishing date of the book and some various clues in the story that this book probably took place in the late 80's, early 90's. But even now I'm not 100% sure. I would have liked a little historical note at the end of the book. I truly wasn't sure how much, other than the basic facts of WW2, was true. (I obviously know that the story itself is historical fiction, but the book deals with the subject of a Swiss banking scandal of at least one bank in the book and I truly am not sure how much is fact and fiction.) I definitely want to do some research of my own. I give this book 5 stars for an excellent story with a strong Christian message.

    Wow, I had no clue what to expect going into this book. I thought it was WW2 historical fiction, but eventually figured out that it took place way after WW2 and was about bringing the bad guys from the war to justice. So yeah, there was some confusion there, but after I got everything straightened out it really drew me in. I was startled to realize that I don't really know about any of the events the book talked about.

I have no clue if they're real or if they are fiction and that's definitely something I'll be researching because I'm curious now. For that I'm thankful - I always like finding out more about historical events. For the most part I liked the book. It was interesting, captivating in parts, and I felt like there was a good flow to the story. I especially liked the middle part after I found out what was going on and before the annoyance of a poorly constructed romance cropped up. Ugg. The "romance" was almost enough to make me groan. Not because it was inappropriate or detailed (because thankfully it wasn't, thank you, author!), but because really? It's not a smart idea to fall in love with someone so very fast especially when a few days prior you were suspicious of their every move. And, even if you do fall in love with them, please, please take a step back and actually think. Other than the fact that they helped keep each other safe, there didn't seem to be a huge amount of discussion regarding who they really were. They knew nothing about what life was like when they weren't running for their lives and yeah... That spells trouble in my book. I'm giving "Monday's Child" 3 out of 5 stars, 5 out of 10 and am considering reading more in the series.

    This was okay, and I can see why I would have liked it when I was in college. It had adventure and intrigue with a little bit of history, plus a cute love story. Reading it as an adult though, the writing was just a little too clunky. The couple really doesn't know each other very well, and their love story is more a compilation of dangerous experiences and both of them being young and attractive. The various agencies they were involved in and how they ended up crossing paths was much more This was okay, and I can see why I would have liked it when I was in college.

I've got the rest of the series and I'm planning to read it, so I'll see how I like the other 4.

    This story was really good! The reason for four stars instead of five is that there was too much filler writing for my taste. The book is quite long and a lot of fluff words could have been left out. In my opinion, the lack of those extra words would have allowed the beauty of the story to show through better. Or maybe I'm getting lazy and ADD as I get older. ;)

    Monday's Child I was so intrigued by the storyline of this book that I hardly put it down. There is so much going on in every chapter that I wanted to see what the next chapter held. The characters were so plausible and real, you could just imagine them in the role they played. I love the Christian theme that is all through the book, as well as the lessons that came with it. Well thought out and excellently written. I'm ready to read the next book in this series.

    This book was really gripping from page one. The intier story plot was really interesting, and the faith element was really well done. The only problem I had with it was really just a silly little one. It was when SPOLIAR ALERT!! Jorden tried to kiss Krista the first time, she said no, that he wasn't a christian. Then, only hours later after he has said he'll think about christianity, they kiss. END SPOILAR ALRET I thought this was out of character for Krista espechially.

    Though a fairly long book, it didn't take me long to finish, because I was caught up in it and didn't want to stop. Espionage, Swiss banking scandals, tragic Jewish history, Bible verses, flying bullets--they all combine for an exciting and unusual read. There were a few things I disapproved of--the normal kissing and that Krista was working outside the home--but I couldn't help liking it, as mysteries are fun.

    This is the book that first introduced me to Linda Chaikin. I loved this book just as much the second time around as the first. Though it is a bit confusing as to which people are good guys versus the bad guys the plot moved along convincingly and the romance between Jordan and Krista moves quickly but at the same time slow enough to be believable. I definitely enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who enjoys Christian historical fiction.

    Since I own this entire series and I've read many of the books twice I think I can safely say that I really enjoyed these books. Some mystery, some romance, some history; can't go wrong with a combination like that.

    This took awhile to get in to, but it was a pretty good story. I thought for awhile that it took place right after WWII, but it actually modern day. Once the time period was clear certain things made more sense.

    I actually enjoyed this book. Even though it started out really slow, the last few pages I almost cried, which it takes quite a bit for me to cry while reading a book.
