My ReviewFlash Point, by JL Crosswhite, is the second book in the Hometown Heroes series. With a great mix of mystery, suspense, action, faith, and romance, this contemporary fiction novel is truly thrilling to read.
Descriptive and real, the Southern California setting is relevant and contributes to the authentic feel of the story. But it is the development of the characters throughout the novel that makes this book shine. The characters are relatable, they are likable, and they make the story sparkle with warmth. The engrossing plot of the novel is well-paced and thoroughly engaging wrapping the reader in the thoughts, feelings, and motivations of the characters themselves. Like the blue flames of a driftwood fire, the themes of adversity, faith, perseverance, redemption, and romance dance together to illuminate a relatable story that uplifts while it also entertains.
With its endearing characters and intriguing plot, Flash Point easily captured my attention from the first chapter to the last. JL Crosswhite is a talented author with a true gift for compelling story-telling. Flash Point is a book I can easily recommend to all readers who enjoy clean, suspenseful romantic fiction.
*I was given a copy of this book by the author. A review was not required. The review I have written contains opinions that are entirely my own.
Flash Point offers more than a mere spark of romance and suspense. It also shines with an emphasis on forgiveness, grace, and perseverance. As the characters grapple with difficult events, they also search for wholeness, purpose, and meaning within their choices and dreams. Their faith and trust grows stronger as they discover that true security is found in the promises of God and in the love and support of friends and family.
