Novel Was Okay The Female And Malewas okay The female and male were both believers and they didn t seem to be suffering crises of faith The conflict seemed to be about whether Mallory could prove her innocence to the the rest of the world including to Logan who found himself doubting her every once in a while Perfect Alibi is a basic inspirational romantic suspense novel with believing protagonists and I didn t think that either of the central characters experienced huge development *or growth in their faith after their adventures concluded As with * growth in their faith after their adventures concluded As with Inspired s practice the Bible verse inscribed on one of the first few pages of this novel reads Be gracious to me O Godfor my soul takes refuge in You and in the shadow of Your wings I will take refuge ntil destruction passes by Psalm 571 NASB The verse describes what Mallory must do in order to get through the circumstances that she finds herself inI found the book to be entertaining and enjoyed the ride that I had with Mallory and Logan in Perfect Alibi I would probably read of Ms Carlson s romantic suspense novels in the futureThis review is also posted on my blog at This iswas her first romantic intrigue story which I thoroughly enjoyed Kept me wanting to read on and see how it ended Hope she writes another one in this genre 25 starsThe author didn t give any reason about y the culprit did wha.

T he did *AND HOW HE PLANNED IT I * how he planned it I read Melody Carlson before and liked her writing so I was curious to try her first foray into romantic suspense Unfortunately this one just didn t work for me In terms of mechanics it s obvious that we re not dealing with a novice writer However the suspense plotting in this book just felt off In Perfect Alibi we pretty much know from the beginning who the villain is And that s a plot choice that can work if the characters are strong enough to pull it off However in this case they just weren t We have journalist Mallory fleeing to her parents home after the murder of a close friend She s positive her eeevil ex boyfriend is behind the crime but pretty much everyone suspects her The fact that the crime occurred in Mallory s home doesn t helpI found it hard to believe that the police who suspect Mallory would let her go jetting off to her hometown but there you go And of course the local fire chief Logan McDani I was very interested when I first heard that Melody Carlson was writing a Love Inspired Suspense since as I ve read many of her books I hadn t seen a suspense ish
book by her Unfortunately I read to page 60 and couldn t continue Between the murder details thatby her Unfortunately I read to page 60 and couldn t continue Between the murder details that over the top and frankly felt like it was trying to hard and Mallory s personality which why was somewhat nderstandable with everything she s been through she just seemed well fake and slightly annoying to me I wasn t enjoying it at allAccording to other reviews who finished this book the killer is who it s saidhinted to be so there s no suspense in. Believe Mallory As the murderer toys with her setting fires and terrorizing her Logan and Mallory become closer He vows to protect her and find a way to break the killer's airtight alibi if it's the last thing he doe.
