My Thoughts ~
If you never want to miss an intriguing and mysterious story that's equal parts suspense and romance, then check out Never Miss by Melissa Koslin!
Intriguing, mysterious, and unique are the words that come to mind after reading Never Miss. The setting, the characters' pasts, the pacing, the conflict -- all of this fell just outside of the normal tropes found in romantic suspense, and these unique differences drew me into this fast paced story! Additionally, I found the plot centering around Ebola to be relatable to the recent struggles the world has faced, and I applaud the author's unique take on a relatable struggle.
While there was instant attraction and connection (due to their similar quirks and the ways their respective minds processed the world around them), Kadence and Lyndon didn't fall prey to the trope of being instantly in-love, and trust and love for one another built over the course of their journey. However, some of the lingering emphasis on the physical attraction was a little difficult. The spiritual storyline subtly worked through their respective trust issues, satisfyingly concluding with Kadence realizing the truth that God had been by her side all along.
Three Stars ~ Never Miss by Melissa Koslin is a gripping romantic suspense! Never Miss is a standalone, but I'm interested to see what the author will write next!
