Review of Final Touch

Final Touch by Brandilyn Collins and Amberly Collins is the third and final book in YA mystery/suspense series The Rayne Tour. Shaley O'Connor is the daughter of a famous singer, and her biggest dream is about to come true. Her mother and her father are finally getting married! However, before the wedding, Shaley is kidnapped! Her life now depends on her skills and smarts. Will Shaley escape? Will the police find her? Will Shaley's parents ever get married?

Find out in Final Touch.

The action in this book was so exciting. Readers journey with Shaley, the authorities, and Shaley's parents with different viewpoints to keep things interesting. I love the narrow misses, the investigation, the action of it all. Shaley does a lot of smart things to try to escape from her captor, and I found myself satisfied with the combination of faith and suspense fiction. I especially loved the climax- it was like a highly organized collision of events. Unlike most modern teen fiction, Final Touch is enjoyable and clean. I found no objectionable content in this book.

I know I would recommend that readers read the first two books before enjoying Final Touch. It's possible to start with Final Touch, but I know that I as a reader wouldn't be as interesting in the story if I didn't know who everyone was and why things were happening. In fact, to be honest, the first and second books outshine Final Touch, especially the first book, Always Watching. The plot of Final Touch simply wasn't as exciting as the plot of the first two books.

All in all, I rate this book four out of five stars.

Note: I received this book freely from Zondervan. I am not obligated to write a positive review- only a honest one.

God Bless,
