Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for Catching Hope by Kathy Cassel, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Catching Hope
Author: Kathy Cassel
Publisher: Haven Point Publishing
Release Date: March 22, 2022
Genre: Teens/YA, Christian
Catching Hope: A pursuit fraught with danger.
Newly adopted Lexi Michaels is taking her first real vacation as she, twin brother Levi, adoptive brother Chad, and new cousin Jen head to Haiti where their dad, a pediatrician, will be volunteering in an island clinic. But who is the man who displays such hatred for the Michaels when they arrive at their resort? Is an attempted burglary as random as it appears? Will Jen ever accept the newcomers to the family? When the four teens set out to explore Haiti’s sights and history on their own, an unexpected encounter and natural disaster plunge them into adventure and danger. With their very survival at stake, can the four teens work together, or will Lexi’s dream of a “forever family” end in tragedy?
My thoughts: I enjoyed the fast pace of this story, as well as the setting. Lexi and her brother have had a difficult start to life, though things are looking up when they get adopted. When their new family goes on a mission to Haiti, the trip does not go as planned.
I thought that Kathy Cassel did a wonderful job with keeping the pace of this story fast and suspenseful. I also enjoyed getting to know the characters as the story progressed. This is labeled as a young adult novel, but is enjoyable for adults as well. I look forward to reading more by the author!
I received a copy of this book from Just Read tours. This is my honest review.
