Ashburn by Julia Erickson ~ a review

23173009

Cara Stephenson, a talented graphic designer at Silver Strand Technologies, never thought she’d see her childhood best friend again… but when he suddenly reenters her life ten years later, he’s a completely different man. What is he hiding, and why should she trust him?

Bryce Reynolds is a man on a mission- a top-secret one at that! He never dreamed the girl down the street would one day become his link to the destruction of Ravenmeister, Inc.- a front for black-market arms and ammunition. Will he crumble underneath the burden of all his secrets?

When the hunt for a missing technology developer in possession of a priceless prototype drags Cara and Bryce on a high-adrenaline ride through the streets of Paris, Venice, and Munich, they must work together to find what they’re looking for… and survive the trip!

 

~ My Review ~

I’m not normally one who likes contemporary settings or action-packed story lines, but for whatever reason this book piqued my interest, so I downloaded it to my Kindle. From page one I was hooked. I love how the action is sprinkled throughout–and you never quite know when some normally quiet event is suddenly going to turn into a high-adrenaline  chase sequence.

The best part of this book, with it’s action, humor, and heartwarming moments, was that it was decidedly Christian.  You watch movies like Knight&Day or Vantage Point, and you think “What a unique plot line! What great one-liners! Too bad there’s so much foul language and  trashy, unnecessary  content. This would be a really great movie!” ASHBURN has all the good qualities of a typical action movie, but it is written by a Christian that knows how to masterfully tell a story, blending in just the right amount of everything to make it an excellent book. I definitely give it a high recommendation. And btw, canNOT wait to read the sequel!

 

~ About the Author ~

Julia Erickson has always adored reading. As a little girl, she even read while rollerblading, floating in the pool, and climbing trees. Her love of words and expressive personality naturally flowed into writing her own stories. Off the pages, Julia is also a budding graphic designer, photographer, and blogger. She loves to sing and dance and has her own handcrafted-jewelry business. Sparkle and style and colors are some of her favorite things. Growing up homeschooled all the way (Thanks, Mom!) allowed her to nurture her many hobbies. She loves her Lord and Savior, and believes the Bible is the best and truest story ever told.

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, Who loved me, and gave Himself for me. ~Galatians 2:20~
