Skye Fall by Paige Edwards immerses readers into the UK. Not a single moment was wasted when placing the reader in the danger surrounding the main character, Isla.
Talk about not knowing the guy you’re dating. Edwards writes a cruel villain and a charming hero, which Isla sorely needs. Ben was amazing. His response to the agents who came to question their marriage and his first line while calling Isla’s father had me cracking up. I love monologues in stories when done correctly, and boy, did Ben sweet-talk Isla off her feet toward the end.
The character development moved swiftly as well, and I felt for Isla when she prayed for the Coobs family while hoping God would hear her for their sake, as she often wondered if He listened to her other prayers. I’m glad the author touched on such a depressing mindset to have.
I recommend this story for fans of romantic suspense, hospital drama, and Christian readers for great themes of faith. Those sensitive to domestic violence might take caution before reading, but the author is sensitive and knowledgeable in this regard. May God bless Edwards for her note on trauma at the end of the story.
Thank you to the author, Net Galley, and publisher for allowing me to read an early copy. All opinions are my own.
Isla Montjoy has it all, a new career in nursing and a police officer boyfriend she adores—until she stumbles across proof of her boyfriend’s corruption. Determined to protect his secrets, he attacks her and leaves her for dead. But against all odds, she lives. On the run for two years, Isla’s life is far from assured as her would-be murderer doggedly tracks her across the UK, intent on silencing her forever.
On a climbing trip in the Scottish Highlands, Ben Pressley-Coombes encounters Isla, a beautiful woman who promptly pepper sprays him without warning or reason. After that rough start, Ben hopes never to lay eyes on her again—but fate has other ideas. Forced into an uneasy association that transforms into a deep-seated romance, the pair soon faces a deadly threat: Isla’s relentless pursuer has discovered her hiding place. If she is to survive, she and Ben must outmaneuver the dirty cop and his treacherous plot to snare her.
