Life Everlasting Book Review
Life Everlasting: An Alexia Lindale Novel, book 2 by Robert Whitlow is a Christian fiction novel about a family who has their share of troubles. Baxter Richardson clings to life after a fall during a hike with his wife. His wife has secrets that she is trying to hide. His brother wants to control the family “empire” and his father fights to keep him alive. Alexia, a lawyer, agrees to help Rena, his wife, but she has no idea the twists and turns that this woman will cause.
It took me a long time to get through this book. I had a really hard time identifying with the characters and a hard time getting to know them. I feel like maybe if had read the 1st book in the series, Life Support, that it would have helped. Other than that the book is well written and has the potential to keep ones interest. Although this book can be read and fully understood without reading the 1st one I would suggest reading them in order. I enjoyed the budding romance between Alexia and Ted but for some reason it just didn’t feel right to me. It seemed almost an afterthought and didn’t mesh well with the story. Again, it may be because I haven’t read the other book. I may go back and read the 1st in the series and might feel differently about Life Everlasting.
I will try more books by Robert Whitlow because I feel like the reason I wasn’t crazy about this book was my fault. He seems to really be a good author and I did want to finish the book to see what happened. The ending obviously leaves you with the understanding that there will be a 3rd book because many of the book’s secrets weren’t revealed.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for an honest review by booksneeze.com.
