"Sweet Sanctuary," by Kim Vogel Sawyer

"Sweet Sanctuary," by Kim Vogel Sawyer

Lydia Eldredge longs to provide sanctuary for her young son, Nicky. But a constant threat comes from Nicky's drug-addicted father, who wants the boy and seems willing to do whatever it takes to get him.
Dr. Micah Hatcher faithfully serves the immigrant population of Queens, New York. But under cover of darkness, he has a secret mission that challenges everything he thought he wanted out of life.

When Lydia and Micah's paths cross, they are suddenly wrapped up in each other's callings. Together, they seek a refuge of safety--for Nicky, for themselves, and for the needy people God puts into their lives. Amid turmoil and discord, can hope and love prevail?

I am a fan of Kim Vogel Sawyer's books, but this one had something missing for me.  It was interesting and both Micah and Lydia were great lead characters; but both seemed a little too good to be true to me.  Micah's secret missions were well written and believable, however please read the author's note at the end about them.  The web link she provides is very informative and I learned a few things I didn't know about.  Sorry I can't be more specific without giving the story away.

Stars out of 5 : 3 the book is an easy read; you do get hooked right away, but it did have that certain something missing for me.  Would I recommend it; yes.
