She resolves to locate the unknown girl but winds up entrenched in a mystery that grows more convoluted as it unfolds.

The is the first book in the Kennedy Stern Christian Suspense series. I was looking forward to reading it since I love suspense/mystery books and being a Christian book I know it won’t have a lot of profanity. It to me awhile to get into the book. It was a little slow in the beginning but then it picked up and I enjoyed it. I’m thinking since it’s a new series, the author had to go more in depth with the character.

In the story, during the time Kennedy and Jodie were being held hostage, I really enjoyed the way the author made the characters react to each other. The character building at this time was great. Since Kennedy had her first day volunteering at a pregnancy site, she believes abortions were wrong but as she was kidnapped she started questioning her beliefs and if God was truly who is he. The ending was good and left you wondering what’s next for Kennedy. I look forward to reading the rest of the series. ( )

Unplanned by Alana Terry
Book starts out with Kennedy Stern and she's at Harvard in Boston now since returning from missionary work in Korea with her parents.
She's in pre-med with many courses and lives in the dorms and helps her parents friend, pastor Carl and his wife Sandy by volunteering at the pregnancy help crisis center by answering phones.
I enjoyed the book but didn't think so many details of the miscarriage had to included. Other details were enough to give you the idea of what was happening.
Liked the passages from the Bible as they are quoted often as at times praying was the only way to get through the turmoil surrounding them.
Received this on Amazon for free and this is my honest review. ( )

I am so glad that I went back and read this book. I had read the second book first and now know much of what I had missed before. This was a good read. There was a perfect amount of suspense in this story. Kennedy is a brave girl. She comes from China to study in the United States and she is fairly alone. That would be hard. I received this ebook from bookfun.org for a fair and honest opinion. ( )

This book handles a controversial subject with grace and insight. I appreciated how the author gave both viewpoints and allowed readers to really grasp the issue with details and openness. I love the authors writing style and I am now a huge fan of hers. The story is fast paced, gripping with tension and keeps readers rushing to turn the pages.

The main character in the book Kennedy , is a young woman who has just returned from China. I can't imagine going to a foreign land and trying to understand the language. Can you imagine being oversees for ten years and then suddenly come home to the states? Kennedy has a full load as she attends Harvard. The author did a great job of describing the day to day schedule for a college student. Kennedy is trying to balance everything in her life but I think at times she may have been overwhelmed. When she decides to volunteer at the pregnancy hotline center she finds herself in a situation that will test her faith. The caller tells Kennedy some very unsettling things but won't let Kennedy know who she is. The tension on the phone was a pure adrenaline rush. The author gives a chilling account of what happens when a young girl finds herself in trouble. Will Kennedy be able to find the girl in time?

The book is powerful and at times very intense. I thought the story was well written without giving the choices more biased on one side then the other. The reader can feel the strain the young girl is going through as her voice shakes with fear as she talks. I found myself thinking how people are so quick to judge others. No matter what you believe , this story is a heartpounding action packed read till the end. Will the young girl who called come forward? What happens at the pregnancy center that causes people to be on edge? I enjoyed the book and appreciated the attention given to people who volunteer to work hotlines at different places. It can make a difference to someone in trouble when the person on the other end of the phone is compassionate and non judgmental. Thank you for writing an inspiring and intriguing story. I look forward to more books from this gifted author.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bookfun.org. The review is my honest opinion . ( )

I just finished this book. It was excellent. It started out a tiny bit slow, but not for long. I assumed I knew where it was going. Boy, was I wrong. this book will keep you interested from beginning to end. The characters are well developed and the story flows well. It has both suspense and thought provoking ideas. The editing was well done, very few errors and nothing that jumped out at me. I truly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from Alana Terry. This book was given to me, in exchange for my honest review, through bookfun.org. ( )
