I’ve been reading many romance novels these past couple of days, so I decided to take a step back from them and read something fresh. So, I picked up Breach of Honor. Trust me, guys; best decision ever!
Breach of Honor by Janice Cantore is a Christian Detective novel. Leah is a Detective convicted of the cold-blooded murder of her husband, whom she killed in self-defence. However, her husband was an abuser, and Leah was a victim of domestic violence. Once when things go too far, she throws in the towel and pulls the trigger. But, the story doesn’t end here.
When her husband was alive, he was into some pretty shady stuff. Now, it’s upto Leah and her loved ones to garner enough information to acquire justice.
I was all in from the very first page of this book. The writing was hauntingly beautiful, and the aspect of Christianity was well depicted. The storyline was intricately woven, and the climax left no threads loose. The story was fast-paced and is bound to keep the reader bouncing at the edge of their seats.
One of the best parts of Janice’s novel is the realism. She doesn’t sugarcoat things nor shies away from the less-than-appealing details of domestic violence or the police system. The language she employs is vivid and fluid. I could feel my heart pounding in anticipation at certain places. Reading this was akin to watching a movie.
All the characters were really fleshed out well. I empathized with Leah since the beginning, and I adored the integrity of Clint. Leah’s father was a man of faith and a headstrong one at that. All the characters added to the excellence of the novel. Never once did the I feel it losing its vice grip on me.
The emotions kicked me in the feels and moved me so much. I would definitely be recommending this book to everyone who likes articulately penned Detective novels, with an engaging storyline and beautiful lessons for the masses.
