First of all, I was so excited to finally have a chance to get books from Waterbrook Multnomah to review for free. I picked out my first book which was Tandem by Tracey Bateman. It sounded like a book I would like since I love Christian suspense. I have not read anything by her so I was game to try this one. Boy was I very disappointed in this book. To be honest, I only read to chapter 8-could not go any farther. I had no idea that this had vampires in the story. Where do vampires fit into a Christian story? I kept asking myself that question and kept trying to rationalize what the author was doing in this story. I never came up with a good answer and I felt that I was not living up to the Christian standards I put on myself if this was honoring God in my continuation of reading this story. I never like to give a bad review,especially my first one, but this is one I am really glad I did not pay money for. I know there will be some that this storyline will be one of their favorites but not this reader.
