More from Rebecca
This book was so much fun to write. There are so many places in this world that have been barely touched by man. I took an interest in Northern Canadian culture after watching a documentary about how the Vikings first settled there.
After reading through the different artifacts that have been found there, Bitter Betrayal was born. I knew this would make a tremendous mystery-suspense story. Whenever I start a Mystery Suspense book, I usually like to add a dash of romance with a historical twist.
Luke Wilkins is someone that most single dads can relate to. He has a difficult time trusting other people. Especially when it comes to his son, Adam. He must trust those around him if he’s going to stay alive.
Bitter Betrayal teeters on the concept of how far someone would go for what they want. If you love Clive Cussler as much as I do, then this Novella is for you.
The book is a fast read and has a story filled with adventure. I loved the setting and the treasure that the team was looking for. Ancient artifacts that someone is willing to kill for is at the center of this action thriller.
The author takes on a trip into Viking history as Luke and his team try to unravel the mystery of a ring and hidden messages on caves hidden deep within mountains. I was intrigued by where the story would take us. It did fall a little short in the description of characters and I couldn’t quite figure out some of the plot. The author leaves us hanging so I will have to wait for the next book to see what happens.
I received a copy of the book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
