Country music star Destiny returns to a place from her childhood, and her real name of Holly Stone, to avoid a stalker that has been threatening her. Arriving in a small town in New York, she thinks she will be safe, but she quickly finds out that isn’t the case in Lillian Duncan’s The Christmas Stalking.
This book has several things that I like about it. First, it is enjoyable to read. The plot moves along well and the characters are easy to picture and relate to . Lillian Duncan did a good job of making them realistic.
I like books that are hard to quit reading, and this one definitely fits that description. I read the first chapter and then wanted to read as much as I could.
Trusting God for guidance and provision is very evident in the plot. Though Holly had gotten lost in the rush and cares of a famous lifestyle, she returns to her roots of faith. When the characters talk about their faith, it sounds like it really is a part of how they live, not a show they put on.
The only thing that I would be able to say against the book is that I was sorry to see it end. I liked that it finished on a happy note, but it was such a good story that I wasn’t ready for it to be over.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.
