THANK YOU LESLEA FOR WRITING SUCH GOOD BOOKS!!!!! Ok, Leslea Wahl’s is my new favorite author!!!!! She writes Christian-friendly mystery’s, with no curse words or “Bleh!”. SHE  IS AMAZING!!!!!! (And she also sent me her other two books for free so I could review them!!!!!! And she signed them!!!!!!!!! “You are awesome Ms. Wahl’s!”)

Anyways, I will give you the backstory. So, I was having a hard time finding clean books for teens, (I don’t know why it’s so hard to find clean, teen fiction but it is!) and I stumbled across the book Ms. Wahl’s sent to me last year. (It is called Where You Lead, and it is soooo cool. Read it.) Immediately I was like, “Ding!” I need to get the rest of her books, cause I love a good mystery. (And her’s are amazing!!!!) So, I contacted her and she, being so amazing, sent me her other two books!!!!! (Which I have wanted to read for sooooo long. Especially The Perfect Blindside)  And may I just say… THESE ARE SOOOOO GOING ON MY FAVORITE SHELF!!!!!

This book is a romance (But it is the good kind of romance. Funny with a hint of lovey-dovey) but it is also a mystery. The book is very clean, but it does talk about drugs a lot. But they don’t take drugs, their trying to solve the “drug mystery”. (So, it’s kind-of like the ‘Love-inspired’ books I like reading but with less violence.)

Over all, I LOVE THESE BOOKS!!!! “Ms. Wahl’s, God gave you such a gift of writing and I am soooo thankful that I get to read your amazing books!” And I am totally suggesting this book to all of you, girls and boys alike! Please read this book, you will not regret it!!!! -The Young Llama Reader.

  • Lots of talk about drugs….

He’s an egotistical snowboarder with a silver medal.

She’s a judgmental honors student with a flair for photography.

Slashed tires…. False accusations…. A coded message…. When all they can see is each other’s flaws, how can Jake and Sophie work together to figure out what’s really been happening at the abandoned gold mine?

Follow Sophie and Jake into secret tunnels as they unravel the mystery and challenge each other to become who God wants them to be.
