More from Tanya

As a teenager, I spent my summers water-skiing on the King’s River in Central California. Even though we lived on the coast and the ocean, we traveled inland to the smooth river waters every other weekend for our sport. We camped on a sandy beach, skimmed over the water all day long and at night sat under a sky full of brilliant stars and listened to the sound of the water rippling past. Since we lived on the coast with a heavy marine layer, the amazing sky always fascinated me. Surrounded by massive cottonwood trees, with the smell of ripe fruit drifting toward us, my river experiences were different from home and more than memorable. On some nights we’d hear the splash and laughter as teenagers, somewhere across the river, came down to swim. I always wondered what it would be like to live in the nearby small, neat-as-a-pin town, to know the same people all of my life and to be able to drive down to the river with my friends on any given night. I envied those teenagers and always knew I’d someday write a story about central California. I didn’t know it would involve biological warfare and crazed killers…but that transition is another story all its own! I’ll stop here and hope you enjoy Killer Harvest!

My thoughts:

This book starts off with some pretty crazy stuff  that will have wondering what is going on.

I appreciated Sassa’s story and her journey in her faith. Jared struggled with his faith, as life had let him down many times and he questioned God.

Overall, for whatever reason, this story didn’t resonant with me. I felt like the writing was choppy and disconnected. Things with the baby didn’t really add up, usually babies don’t pull themselves up until nine or ten months but this baby was doing it at six months (of course there can be exceptions to the rules). Also, the baby pulled herself up on one page and a few pages later Sassa was surprised that the baby pulled herself up and made it sound like it was the first time. I had to go back and reread it because I was a bit confused by the reaction.

The chapters were also very long. I like shorter chapters that keep me moving throughout the book.

But this book has a good premise and as always if this sounds like something you would like give a read and form your own opinion.

Grab your copy at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Christianbook.com or your favorite retailer.

A copy of this book was given to me through the Celebrate Lit Team. All opinions are my own.
