Johnnie Alexander's mischief thief
A lost lamb
The Mischief Thief by Johnnie Alexander is an exciting contemporary Christian tension that will make your heart beat faster as you read. It is the first book in the Rose And Thorne series and part of the Mosaic Collection.
History shows that even if life makes you bend balls and get out of control, there is someone who is bigger, someone who is always in control. Nothing surprises him, even if it surprises us.
God gives us grace. Again, we have to show mercy to others.
There is the issue of trust. People are not always what they seem. God can always be trusted. If we don't know what to do, we can turn to him. It will give us peace that, despite our circumstances, is incomprehensible. We can experience the fragrance of God in our lives if we only turn to and trust Him.
Johnnie Alexander has created a complicated and cleverly constructed plot. I have to admit, sometimes my head turned as it turned back and forth. I was stuck and I guessed consistently. Her characters were well drawn and personable. The connection between the two leaders was palpable, their friendship radiated from the sides.
Our past is just that, past. We cannot change it, but we can learn from it. Nobody is too far from God because of his love and grace. We just have to call him. "Her heart wept for God's help." If we cannot find the words, God hears the cry of our hearts.
I really enjoyed The Mischief Thief. It was my first book by Johnnie Alexander, but I'll hunt more.
I got this book for free. A positive rating was not required and all views expressed are my own.
