The Scent of Fear - book review

A review copy of The Scent of Fear was provided to me, my opinions are my own.
I was freaked out by the time I reached the middle of this book (Which I am assuming was intentional.).  It gives a very nightmarish view of what could happen for Christians in the future in this country.  The government is taking away personal freedoms one freedom at a time, and slowly everyones life is being touched by it.  I enjoyed the book overall, but I will tell you, I do not love to read books that paint scary pictures of the future.  I have enough to worry about in my own life, I don't need to add worry about things that may, or may not, ever happen.  I also didn't love that it ended fairly abruptly.  The book was well thought out, and storyline was good.  I had trouble following in some parts, because settings and names change so quickly and so often in the book, but for some of you that will be less of a problem.  The book is good,  check it out.  Below is the info that the publisher provided to me to include in this post.  Check out the links, and the rest of the blog tour." rel="attachment wp-att-17801">the scent of fear by susan j. reinhardt

First came The Moses Conspiracy, now comes..... The Scent of Fear.

The Zimmermans enjoy the tenuous peace in the wake of their hair-raising year battling the New Patriots. Unexpected visitors once again throw them into turmoil.

Jim Kenneman, Director of National Security, masterminded the plan to break up a hate group ravaging the Christian community. Now, his enemies are out to eliminate him. Should he make a run for it or stick by his tried-and-true negotiating skills?

Monty Addison, a topnotch operative, carried out his assignment in Bird-in-Hand. A plot to destroy his boss sends him on a mission. Without agency sanction, it may cost him everything - his career, his family, and maybe his life.

Dr. Abby Weaver strives to save infants and toddlers in Holmes County, Ohio. When she meets two strangers, she can't get the tall, handsome one out of her mind. Will their paths intersect again or will dangerous times keep them apart?
