Threat of Darkness by Valerie Hansen
Harlequin romances have a reputation for being twaddle romances full of lame love stories and sometimes a little steamy intimacy. But, recently I have read a few books from the Love Inspired line from Harlequin. The Love Inspired books have a faith element. The books are clean. The steamy scenes are lacking. The characters face moral and spiritual growth as well as a new relationship. I still wouldn't consider them deep and meaningful reads, but they are an enjoyable (and clean) light read.
In Threat of Darkness, Samantha finds herself in the middle of a mystery when a teenager in her ER has supposedly handed her an unknown package. She is aided by her former boyfriend, John. As the two face the danger that Samantha has stumbled into, they look for a way to renew their former relationship.
It was a rather trite and often predictable romance. It was clean and somewhat inspiring. It's the kind of book to take to the beach and read through in one sitting out on the sand. Don't expect anything earth shattering. But, it is a light, enjoyable read.
I give it a 3.5 stars, and a G rating for a good, clean read.
I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley for review purposes.. All opinions expressed here are entirely my own.
