Like with most authors, their more current works do feel different to their first published works, however, I still enjoyed this story. The mystery and suspense was thrilling and exciting. And though I did guess some revelations, the author has a way of throwing in twist and turns when you don’t expect them and keeping the pace fast with all the action and danger for the characters. Gracie’s longing to make a difference was one any Christian could relate to and I loved how her character turned to God every time she need strength and comfort. I loved how some characters was not saved and asked difficult questions, but also loved how the author described the salvation scene - because yes, when God makes you a new creation, you definitely will feel the difference. “No one lives a life without mistakes and sin. And God knows that. But He has chosen to love us, to demonstrate just how deep and wide His love is. You can’t out-sin God’s grace.” I enjoyed this story, learned a lot about Russia, and looking forward to the rest of the series. *I’ve read this on Kindle Unlimited.*

    After thinking on it overnight, I had to go down a star. A little over dramatic and intense for me, plus there was a lack of background. I felt like I entered the book in the middle of a series, even though it’s book 1. I also wasn’t a fan of the romantic entanglement. It did keep me reading, I did have to finish it and find out what happened! All in all, though I’ve enjoyed several of her books, I think I’m going to give this author a rest for a bit.

    I picked this book up at an ACFW conference and finally got around to reading it. I'm sorry I let it go so long. It was an excellent read. Warren does a wonderful job of keeping the suspense right on the edge. I loved the Russian backdrop to the story and the unbelievable personal connection that she has to the story's plotline. Don't miss her personal note at the end! I picked this book up at an ACFW conference and finally got around to reading it. I'm sorry I let it go so long. It was an excellent read.

These aren't new feelings, but with the headlines and events straight out if Biblical Prophecy, well, timely indeed, and a much needed Confirmation about a few things. 😍 Review: After the last couple of somewhat lighter reads, this one is heavy. Still, with the location and subject matter, I expected no less. What I wasn't sure about is how much 'culture shock' would affect my enjoyment of the story. Thankfully, and surprisingly not at all! The author lived in Russia for several years, so there is a vast array of Russian culture and way of life, but it's presented in a way that Americans and otherwise can also enjoy it and still be able to understand the story with ease. I quickly liked both Vicktor and Grace, and even enjoyed Vicktor's friends at the FSB (KGB) office. My one regret? It seems Mae is left out of the group as far as who gets a book in the series, at least I didn't see any featuring her, which I'm bummed about, but still plan to finish this series! (Also, if you plan to read this series, read the updated version! I didn't realize they were updated last year, and this is the version my library happened to carry that I stumbled on.) I guessed, or well strongly suspected, the suspect at the first Wolf chapter, but was still caught off guard by the reveal, and was impressed with how things went down! Beyond that, I loved all the twists and surprises the gang met along the way, both in terms of the case/crime and action, and in their growing romantic revelations as they start to realize maybe their is room for something more in their lives. Something both MCs thought impossible after convincing themselves for different reasons that they are better off alone and had not interest in pursuing more. Overall, I loved this one, and can't wait to read more. While I did prefer Vicktor and Grace's budding friendship/relationship and seeing Roman, Yanna, and Mae (and hearing from David/Preach on Vicktor's IM chat) over the actual hunt for the killer in this one, it was still done in a way that I was able to enjoy it without struggle, only slightly rolling my eyes when The Wolf has a brief POV between chapters. (view spoiler)[ I also loved Gracie's time with Vicktor's dad, but only wish they had gone back after as he clearly enjoyed her company and was so proud of his son, I'd have loved to see that scene when they went back after realizing the truth of the forgiveness and love that flowed between the three. Such a healing moment, and it was painful not to see it come full circle. (hide spoiler)]

    Somehow read 2 and 3, but never got around to the first book in the series. Lots of twists and turns and plenty of suspense with a touch of romance. Gracie was in Siberia for a 2 year mission term. It is almost time to go home, but she felt she has not led one Russian to Christ. Little does she know that she will lead the most unlikely person to salvation and life in Jesus.

On the eve of her departure, she discovers the brutally murdered bodies of her colleagues. Suddenly thrust into an unfurling web of deception and lies, Gracie finds herself in a fight for her life, with precious few people to trust. Enigmatic FSB agent Viktor Shubnikov emerges as her unlikely ally - but can Gracie look past his FSB background and her own deep-rooted fears and entrust her life to a most unlikely protector? Viktor finds himself instantly attracted to Gracie's fighting spirit and vows to protect her from the killer who shattered his family years before. However, when thing stands in the way of getting as close to Gracie as he'd like - her tenacious faith. He's seen - and done - too much to deserve grace and forgiveness. When events spiral out of his control, Viktor is forced to relinquish control and entrust his future, and Gracie's, to an invisible God's guiding hand. In Sheep's Clothing is one of my all-time favorite novels, and as such it's long overdue for an "official" review. Gracie and Viktor are classic Warren creations - they leap living and breathing from the page, fully rounded characters brimming with pain, hope, and potential. The inspiration for their story came from events surrounding a KGB plant in the church discovered during Warren's time as a missionary there. The basic issue of trust in a supposedly good God - how He could allow bad things to happen to essentially good people - is at the crux of Viktor and Gracie's respective faith journeys. Despite their divergent backgrounds, Viktor and Gracie both learn that God's forgiveness isn't something that can be earned - it's a gift, freely given. And only when that gift is received, and control is relinquished, can they rest in the knowledge that in time of need, God - Jehovah Jireh - will provide. In Sheep's Clothing delivers non-stop action and riveting romance, along with life-changing, compelling spiritual truths. Warren never "preaches" and never fails to engage the reader on a thrilling, absorbing journey. I highly recommend this book as a starting point if you've never read one of Warren's books before - you couldn't ask for a better introduction.

    Full of Action and Suspense! Susan May Warren is a FANTASTIC writer! This story is full of action, suspense, murder, and a bit of romance. I loved how the author wove the struggles of being a missionary into this story. Daily missionaries have to trust God for their safety, their provisions, and their purpose. Gracie was struggling with all of this. It's hard to imagine what else could go wrong in the last few days Gracie had in Russia, but it just seems to keep going and going. Who can she trust?

    I'm not sure why this book got such high ratings! This was a random book I picked from the library and thought the story sounded interesting. The character's were weak, the plot was weak and the end of the book was just hookey. I'm not sure why this book got such high ratings!

    Thrilling and action packed with a nice side.of romance Okay so I figured it out pretty early who the villain was but had to keep reading to see what happened. He I was right but the journey was the best part. While not a deep thinking book, this book.has heart and that is just as important. A good book and a good read.
