Wrong Number book Review

Wrong Number by Rachelle J. Christensen is a thrilling suspense novel. I was lucky enough to get a copy from her to read a few weeks back. Even though it's geared for adults, my thirteen-year-old son took it and keeps talking about it. I wouldn't have guessed he would get into it, but he really has.

And he doesn't get into a lot of books. That alone should tell you how great of a read this is.

The story starts right up with a murder mystery and keeps you turning the pages. With a little romance tucked in there, the balance of suspense and love works very well. I'm one of those people where if the entire book is scarier than spit, I have a hard time reading it. This one had the tension without turning me off.

And, I don't mind if my thirteen-year-old does get into it. It's not too graphic or mushy.

It's smart too. I love that in the end, there's a logical reason for things; one that is a level beyond the obvious.

I tried not to give you any spoilers. Now you can hop on over to a bookstore and check it out.

I've heard all about this book and people have been pretty good about avoiding spoilers (Thank you, Laura!) so now I'm all intrigued and fascinated. Now I'll have to get it!
