Forewarned by Debra Ullrick is a wonderful, suspenseful book that kept me on the edge of my chair and chewing on a fingernail. Jasmine Moore lives in Steamboat Springs, Colorado but due to a near fatal accident, she can no longer stand the frigid cold of the winters in the area. Jack Warren has been Jasmine’s friend since they were young children. He has been in love with Jasmine for years and wants only to marry her and love her for the rest of their lives but she has a problem with trust even though she wants the same thing. Because the cold is so painful for Jasmine, she spends most of her time inside which leads to boredom. She decides to start chatting with friends online and connects with a man with the screen name of Simonrapport who sounds like every woman’s dream. Jack warns her about chatting with men online and even though she has slight feelings of danger, Jasmine continues to chat with Simon and soon finds herself in great danger.
The plot of the story was very well done and all the twists and turns in the action kept me guessing from page to page and I found it almost impossible to put the book down when I needed to do something other than read. All the characters were expertly developed and their dialogue was well written and easy to follow which made for an easy read. The realistic descriptions of the scenery had me feeling the cold of the snow and the joy of walking in the woods. The story was quite inspiring and without being critical or preachy, the author revealed that online chatting with strangers can lead to danger. Except for the bad guys, all the characters in the story showed by their daily living that God played a very important part in their lives. Jasmine and Jack were often praying for guidance and protection and God provided for their needs.
I very highly recommend this book to everyone who likes a story with a heart touching romance and lots of suspense to keep you guessing to the very end.
Thank you to Debra Ullrick, the author, for providing me with a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
