This was my first B.J. Daniels read and I was completely blown away! This book is amazing. The story is expertly crafted and honed beautifully and I was immediately hooked from the first page.
What I really enjoyed about this book was the dual story lines. It was like having two books in one! Atonement is a perfect example of exceptional storytelling. The author really ran the gamut of emotions in the story which made it easy to relate to the characters.
What I also found interesting was the lack of love scenes and the seldom use of curse words. In Atonement, the author demonstrates that you can write an exceptional and intriguing story without vulgar language and graphic sex scenes. Nothing wrong with those things but I though the book was tastefully done and I really appreciated the author’s choice to refrain from it.
I struggled a little in writing this review because I just couldn’t seem to correctly articulate my thoughts on the book. I feel changed in some way after having read this wonderful story. I highly recommend this book to any reader who enjoys engaging, mystery-filled suspense stories sprinkled with romance and a touch of humor.
A solid 5 Star read!
