Army chaplain Jaime Richards once again balances faith with action-oriented purpose in this sequel to Chasing Eden, which picks up three years after the
previous title left off. By condensing the major plot timeline into just days, Linnea keeps the pressure on and the events racing. She does nail-biting extremely well.
Five children of Edenites who are living and working in our world have been kidnapped, and it's Jaime's mission to rescue the children and find out who's behind the abductions. She's joined by the mysterious and handsome Yani, who first introduced her to Eden's miraculous existence. The fuse is lit, and time is of the essence. (ST. MARTIN'S, Oct., 384 pp., $6.99)
