Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for Circumvent by S. K. Derban, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Author: S. K. Derban
Publisher: TouchPoint Press
Release Date: November 9, 2017
Genre: Clean Ready Mystery
When perfection turns to panic an isolated couple must learn:
“For we walk by faith, not by sight…”
Imagine living in a quaint, beach-front cottage on the Hawaiian island of Maui. You have an amazing job, combined with the pleasure of working from home. Lunch breaks become a daily picnic on the sand. Dessert is always included because of your marriage to a famous pastry chef. Life could not be any better. Or so it seems…
French-born, Nikki Sabine Moueix travels to Hawaii for a special work assignment, but the job of writing an article about a famous Swiss pastry chef generates more than a magazine piece. They fall in love, get married, and Nikki Moueix becomes Mrs. Ruggiero Delémont.
When another assignment calls for Nikki to spend three weeks in France, Ruggiero’s schedule prevents him from joining her. She travels alone, advancing straight into danger. After a threatening confrontation, Nikki wakes up in a French hospital with no knowledge of her past. After she fails to check in, Ruggiero panics and pushes for an immediate investigation. But as he closes in, Nikki’s new found friend moves her to another city. It becomes a game of hide and seek with Nikki as the prize.
CIRCUMVENT allows readers to form a bond with Nikki as they yearn for her to remember. They will cheer for Ruggiero and his relentless determination to locate his beloved wife. This is a story about two people who never lose their faith in God, and find amazing friends to help them along the way.
I was so impressed with this amazing ride. This suspense was unlike anything I had read in awhile. It is refreshing to have a suspense with an already married couple and to have a international journey to find the love of your life. Ruggiero is not your typical hero and Nikki is not a damsel in distress, but when circumstances outside their control separate them, they show that true love wins in the end.
I found myself agonizing over the story and if Rugi would find Nikki. To have them in the middle of a more sinister plot made it all the more tense and exciting. I have not read a book by this author before and I was drawn in and it was better than I could have expected. I was truly impressed. The suspense was perfectly paced and the romance was just right.
I received an eARC of this book and this is my honest review.
