    • Great opening hook Reasonably good mystery and storyline with some unique components amid the typical, evangelical genre expectations In the beginning I was fully onboard, despite it being heavy on the dramatic angst Her hand tightened on the photo She took a deep breath, the pain of betrayal stabbing at her lungs Her chest ached with the hurt searing her heart, the effort not to fall apart overwhelming her But then the story in its entirety started to fizzle and fall apart At least in my esti [...]

    • 2 different friends and one beloved sister told me to just give up on this book, after much ranting One wise friend went on to say Life is too short to be wasting on books you can t stand Therefore, to say that I did not like this book is a severe understatement Between the B.W.W.C s that s Before the World Went Crazy, a phrase used frequently in this book , cheesy romances apparently, when you become a widow, the men just come crawling out of the woodwork , a terrible love triangle that is too [...]

    • Read my full review bit 17NImUeMy opinion OKgotta say that this is a Christian lit book I must admit that there was some heavy biblical reference in the beginning but then lightened up significantly I will say that although this is a Christian writer, I could have done without the heavy biblical reference in the beginning I think it actually detracted from the story and came across as preachy Like romance writers, I find for me that I do best with Christian writers who recognize a balance and I [...]

    • Good, but painful Painful in the amount of unnecessary words and characters There were so many characters I really had a hard time keeping up The unnecessary use of words was almost overwhelming The first 100 or so pages felt like wading threw mud The storyline was good if you could keep up a romantic mystery LOVED Mike, the hero Alison, the heroine, had her moments Although I thought I knew who the killer was wishful thinking on my part, I was mistaken I suspected the real killer, but was hopef [...]


    • A truly entertaining Christian fiction about a woman rocked by her husband s murder The story includes strong characters, fascinating settings including the estate museum that factors as the central character of the story, strong values, and a sweet love story What s not to like

    • There is an excellent cartoon going around that shows an author on trial, and a reader is standing before the judge saying That s the one That s them Their book kidnapped me and wouldn t let me go Now, ladies and gentlemen, I submit that that book may well be Carolina Reckoning.Those who know me know that I love all things Southern and Mystery Put the two together think In The Heat of The Night what an excellent Tv show that is and I walk around with a smile that is far too big to be healthy Whe [...]

    • This is a murder mystery suspense novel with a Christian theme encasing it I thought it was a good book for the genre, and sometimes enjoyed the read, but felt the spiritual subtext was too prominent It became taxing toward the middle and I struggled to get to the end because of it Lisa Carter does a good job of creating her characters, although I found them all a bit sanguine Even the bad guys were likable to a certain degree It gave the book an over all sugar coating that made the intensity of [...]

    • I love murder mysteries, but way too often I have figured out by page 50 who the villain is what fun is that Lisa Carter kept me guessing and on the edge of my seat right up to the big reveal I love the way she wove in little details about Raleigh I ve read books that could be set in any city and the story exists completely apart from its setting I hate that Every setting has its own culture, its own flavor and Lisa has captured the essence of Raleigh especially Old Raleigh The spiritual journey [...]

    • This author is new to me and I really enjoyed this book It took a couple chapters for me to really get into it but then I was hooked There are some really colourful characters that add fun to the sometimes intense storyline All of the characters have flaws and shortcomings, and Mike s character in particular does not always say or do what you d expect the love interest to That also adds humour, and makes things a little realistic Mike is a bit of a redneck from the mountains, not Mr Sensitive, [...]


    • This is a very good mystery for a debut novel It takes place in Raleigh and I liked learning about the society structure and a bit of the history of the area The mystery aspect was pretty well done There were plenty of suspects and enough twists and turns to keep me reading.My favorite aspect of the novel was the Christianity It was essential to the story, nothing something tacked on as some authors do.The characters were well crafted Some of the high society women just dripped venom.A good myst [...]


    • Carolina Reckoning is a bit light It s not an emotional rollercoaster and won t reach down and touch you somewhere deep in your heart but the salvation message is there and watching both Alison and Mike learn to lean on God and trust that he truly is there for us was really nice to watch I loved the ending not for the romance but for the conclusion to the mystery that sorta surprised me It wasn t the who dun it I thought it would be but the mystery itself and the reasons behind it were interesti [...]


    • Thanks to Good Reads, I got a copy of Lisa Cox Carter s Carolina Reckoning For anyone who is looking for a murder mystery with a Christian influence, this is a book you should consider The characters are likable They deal with how hard it can be to forgive someone The book gives us a look at how a family learns to deal with an unexpected loss of a family member and then go on living One thing I especially liked about this book, was the lack of blood and gore, profanity, and explicit sex scenes I [...]


    • I ve got mixed feelings about this book We re introduced to an array of characters which makes it a bit difficult to keep all of them straight The main characters were certainly not perfect and the detective falling in love with the newly widowed Allison wasn t a surprise and he s a bit of an oddball It was an interesting murder mystery but there is no suspense, several times I felt parts were unbelievable and downright preposterous I did like the twist at the end and the things Allison discover [...]


    • I won this book on It said that it was an unedited edition but I found it to be very readable It was a good Christian romance novel with very believable characters The book did seem to lean a little heavily on finding faith in God through prayer which may deter a few readers However to me the book did not seem to be too preachy and the plot seemed to flow well I liked the ending and the revealing of the murderer It was not the character that I had suspected All in all Charolina Reckoning was a g [...]
