This is a Christian Fiction book. If you like suspense, your heart rate should increase while reading this novel filled with more turns than a winding mountain highway and just as dangerous. The characters are bold and believable, the storyline unique and intriguing. Just don't forget to breathe. Will Brandilyn Collins become the Mary Higgins Clark of Christian fiction? No doubt about it. (from Times magazine)

Very good mystery -- Christian fiction.
reviewed Eyes of Elisha (Chelsea Adams, Bk 1) on
" In a horrifying vision, Chelsea Adams has relived the victim's last moments. But who will believe her? Certainly not the pilice, who must rely on hard evidence. Nor her husband, who barely tolerates Chelsea's newfound Christian faith. Besides, he's about to hire the man who Chelsea is certain is the killer to be a vice president in his company.

Torn between what she knows and the burden of proof, Chelsea must follow God's leading and trust him for protection. Meanwhile, the murderer is at liberty. And he's not about to take Chelsea's involvement lying down."

This is a spell binding,suspenseful Christian novel, fascinating reading....

It was a great book nothing like I expected considering I never read any of her books I got this one free when I got another book I was getting.

I had never heard of this author before I read this book. I enjoy a good mystery, and this one is good. When it looked like the mystery was solved, the book wasn't over and I thought, "OK, this is different, what's going on?" Totally unexpected, lots of twists and turns. So now I've got to see what else Brandilyn Collins has written!

Couldn't read this one because the print is so small it was hurting my eyes so I don't know if story is good or not had to quit after just a few pages.

I just found this author and love her writing. But make sure you have time, because you won't want to put it down.

I found that I did not like the Mass Market version. The print is too small. I swapped for the orignal and it was a lot better.

The novel has a chilling start. And a surprising finish. With an interesting mystery novel twist. Because the eye-witness didnt witness the crime. She saw it through a God-given vision.

The premise was enough to give me chills and the opening of the novel quickly maintains that edgy quality. Chelsea is an incredibly likeable and sympathetic heroine. She doesnt want these visions, but because of her faith is convicted to make sure the proper people know what she has seen.

Now, Im not usually the terribly bright reader that spots the villain before he/she is revealed and this book did leave me in the dark to who did it. But by the time the book closed, every doubt I might have had about this twist being pulled out at a desperate last minute, was completely erased.

Middle to end of the book slowed a bit for a murder mystery I thought and became more wordy. The ending didnt hold that gripping suspense that Ive become used too, but I will say one of the last scenes was especially well written. I was right therebut I dare not say more for spoilers.

I did like the courtroom scene, though a bit wordy, the back and forth dialogue fling was like I was watching the lawyer shout, objection!

Often chilling word pictures, likeable main character and deep spiritual truths. Eyes of Elisha is a well-rounded suspense novel.

This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publisher for my copy to review.
