Eyes of Elisha by Brandilyn Collins is the first book in the Chelsea Adams Series. Chelsea Adams became a Christian a year ago and began having visions (mostly of future incidents). Chelsea believes the visions are from God. Then she has a vision of a murder that had already occurred. Chelsea sets out to find the victim and the killer. Her husband, Paul, is skeptical about her visions and avoids talking to her about God. How will this investigation affect their marriage? Will Paul ever accept her visions?
I did not enjoy reading Eyes of Elisha. I thought it would be good with the visions and the mystery. However, the Christian elements (a lot of prayer and Bible verses) overshadowed everything else. The mystery was extremely simple (I knew who the killer was as soon as the character as introduced). I like Christian stories, but where the Christian element is barely noticeable (subtle and not in your face). I was not drawn into the story (by the characters or the storyline). I give Eyes of Elisha 3 out of 5 stars (it was okay but its potential was not realized). I just do not think that I am the right audience for this novel (or in my speak "It is not my cup of tea!").
I received a complimentary copy of Eyes of Elisha from the author through The Book Club Network, Inc. in exchange for an honest review.
Thank you so much for stopping by and reading my latest review. I am currently reading Just Plain Sadie by Amy Lillard. I will let you know how I like it. Take care and Happy Reading!
