H. L. Wegley’s books and I have a love/hate relationship. I love to read his stories, but I hate to see them end. And they’re page turners, so they are fast reads–at least for me.
The Janus Journals are no exception. One reformed Soviet spy, his college daughter, a handsome family friend, and an assassin. Mix them all together and you have a action/adventure romance that leaves you breathless.
When her dad is murdered, Allie Petrenko, gets a message from him saying run, don’t go home, and read the journals in the safety deposit box. The only person(s) she can trust are the Jamisons, but they’ve recently moved. She calls their son, Grady, for help. Almost immediately, they’re on a cross-country chase being tailed by the assassin, who wants the journals.
On the journey, they read the journals and discover Allie’s dad wasn’t who she believed him to be. And she’s being challenged by Grady to consider God and discover faith. From the first page, I was captivated–another five stars for Wegley!
H.L. Wegley served as an Air Force Intelligence Analyst and a Weather Officer. As a civilian, he worked as a research scientist, then worked for Boeing for twenty years where he developed many of their computing systems. Wegley and his wife, Babe, enjoy spending summers in Whistler, BC, where they “consume gallons of coffee, enjoy the beautiful scenery, and Babe reads while H.L. writes, sitting by a stream in the warm summer sun around Whistler Village.”
Although I received a free copy of The Janus Journals from the author, I was in no way obligated to write a review.
