Review: Shepherd's Fall by Wanda Dyson

Shepherd's Fall
I know there are many bounty hunter stories out there, but I personally haven't read any of them, which is probably just as well because it was the most interesting aspect of this book to me. Nick Shephard is a bounty hunter whose business is failing. His wife left him and to top matters off, one of the criminals he helped put away has escaped...and is threatening his daughter's life.

Now Nick is on the hunt for this man. Meanwhile, Annie is dying and trying to find her sister for a much needed donor match. Nick is also hunting Annie's sister. Can they work together to find her?

I was pretty interested in Shepherd's Fall for about a fourth of it, and then I lost interest. I can't exactly say why, perhaps the novelty of a bounty hunter story had worn off by that point. Or maybe it was that too many storylines were being tackled which led to insufficient development of any of them. In any case, it was an average read, but not one I'm likely to remember in a few months time. When you read as much as I really need compelling!

Having said that, if you enjoy Christian suspense, you might enjoy this one, as it in a similar vein of much that is out there.

Rating: 2.5/5

I had the same thing happen to me with the Reincarnationist. I think anytime you tackle a large cast of characters/plots you have t be extra compelling of the reader(especially me) can become overwhelmed, disengaged and bored.
