      Carla Neggers is a best-selling romantic suspense writer with dozens of books to her credit. Tempting Faith is a rerelease of a book written in 1994. The book was updated and revised and released by Mira Publishing Company.

      Tempting Fate is the story of Dani Pembroke, a young businesswoman whose movie star mother disappeared many years ago. Dani is the child of a movie star and the grandchild of a multimillionaire.

      She has made a name


      for herself in the mineral water business and also manages a hotel. One night, while out in the hills, she finds the golden key — the same golden key that her mother was wearing when she disappeared.

      When news of this find reaches Zeke Cutler and his grandmother, the old woman sends Zeke on a mission to find Dani and discover what happened. We start off not knowing the connection between Zeke and Dani and the golden key.

      ...


      • Nor do we know what happened to Dani’s mother on that long-ago day she disappeared. The problem with this book, was that the characters were very likable.

        Dani was always angry at someone or something, and was prickly and hard to get close to. Zeke had no personality at all.

        I understand the author was trying to make Dani into this overly independent character who had to learn to trust others, but it just made her

        very annoying character. The only suspense in the book, because you know the two lead characters are going to end up together, is the history of what happened to the mother.

        This is a very captivating mystery, but the book took so long to get to the answer. I found myself getting very impatient with how slowly the story was going.

        Not only that, there are some major loopholes in the plot. Overall, I really was disappointed in this book.
