About the Book

Flicker of Trust

Title: Flicker of Trust
Burning Bright #2
Eleanor Bertin
Publisher: Leaf & Blade Publishing
Release Date:
February 21, 2024
Genre: Christian Romantic Suspense

When a woman disappears, Ryan’s past is fair game. 

Party animal Ryan Hainstock has made an about-face. He’s now an elder-caring, money-saving, church-going man with bright plans to set himself up farming. Somehow, whether he rates with her or not, those plans always include sweet and smart Lynnie Min and her young daughter. Problem is, Ryan’s past keeps coming back to condemn him. 

Lynnie Min, too young for the title of widow, travels the lonely road of single motherhood in a rural community. Her dreams were crushed by tragedy when terrorists claimed the lives of her husband and one of her daughters. While gratitude should fill her heart for the presence of three-year-old Anya, a longing for something more stirs within her. She can’t help noticing the changes in Ryan, a man she once knew as a high school jock. 

While their affection deepens, greater forces conspire to destroy their growing love. A murder charge, a kidnapping, a child abandoned…Can Ryan and Lynnie overcome danger and distrust to find each other again?

My Thoughts

This is my first book by this author and I really enjoyed it. This happened to be Book 2 in the series and although I didn't feel lost while reading I can also see how Book 1 would have been helpful in getting to know Lynnie Min's background a bit better. This book is about Lynnie and Ryan. I really enjoyed their story. Ryan has a past that he's trying to leave behind. I loved how throughout the book he is seeking to be a better man in God's eyes. His dad is really tough on him and honestly he was my least favorite character. I'm curious to see if he has a redemption arc in the next book. 

Lynnie sees something in Ryan that no one else seems to. She knows he is trying and although doubts creep in at times she still knows that he is trying to put his life in the right path. The growth of these characters throughout the book was very realistic. 

Overall I really enjoyed this story and thought the author did a great job with the characters and the faith thread. I can't wait to read more from her in the future!
