First off . . . that cover! It's so gorgeous and fits the books so perfectly! I will definitely be buying a hard copy if only to have that lovely cover on my bookshelf.

The only word I can think of to best describe this book is mindblowing. There are so many twists and turns! I am greatly looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

Kaely Quinn is a very complex and interesting character. Her quirks and her job make her so unique. I'm not sure I've read a book with a character that was even similar to Kaely. Noah Hunter was also interesting, but I feel like the author only scratched the surface of his character in this book, and I hope she'll delve deeper in the upcoming books.

The story and plot were also very unique and grabbed my interest from the beginning. The premise of Kaely's job and her methods were fascinating as well. While a little light on action (until the end, that is.) there was definitely loads of suspense, and, as I mentioned, a ton of completely unexpected twists and turns. I thought I had the villain pegged, but was completely shocked when the identity was revealed. The faith elements were woven in very effectively and were neither too backseat nor too in-your-face. While overall the story was wrapped up by the end of the book and left you feeling satisfied, there are still a lot of threads to be continued in later books.

My one issue is with a few medical inaccuracies - such as a guy with a minor gunshot wound to the chest and a couple of broken ribs maneuvering himself around in a wheelchair . . . Um, really? Broken ribs alone are incredibly painful, and using your upper-body strength to push yourself in a wheelchair would be far more painful and taxing than just walking.

Overall, this is a masterfully-written novel of suspense, and I am greatly looking forward to reading more in the series! Kudos to the author! I highly recommend Mind Games.

Sarah Grace is a voracious reader, and if it weren’t for this crazy thing called “Life”, she’d be tempted to spend all her days in front of a woodstove, book in one hand, coffee mug in the other. A lover of learning, she finds enjoyment in many things and has more hobbies than she knows what to do with. When not reading, spending time with her ever-growing family, or buried in a textbook, she can be found painting, playing the piano, producing music and audio dramas, web designing, fangirling with her sisters and friends, or discussing technology with her brothers. Sarah Grace inhabits the State of Great Lakes and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.
