Replacing GentryReplacing Gentry by Julie N. Ford
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I honestly did not know what to expect from this book when I started it.  I enjoy mysteries, and I have always been a fan of the story "Rebecca."  For the first third of the book, I figured that I would give it a four-star rating.  It had a pretty good story, was well-written, and the mystery was somewhat intriguing.  But it was nothing too special.  Yes, I could see where it had some similarities to "Rebecca."  Woman marries a guy she hardly knows and walks into the middle of what becomes an increasingly strange situation.  But I felt it was missing something.

All that changed about a third of the way into the book!  All of a sudden, the action and mystery became much more intense.  Everything was told from Marlie's perspective so many of the facts were missing.  The genetic issues really gave me pause--no spoilers; you need to read that for yourself.  I was not greatly intrigued with Marlie, and every page I read became more eerie and filled with suspense.  I had a few things correct concerning my suspicions, but for the most part, I was floored with the conclusions!

I can highly recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries.  Rest assured that there is no profanity nor sex scenes.  In fact, the book is extremely moralistic in nature, and I am happy to report that this story ends as it should.  I definitely will be looking for more by this author.

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
