Dancing on Glass by Pamela Binnings Ewen

In the steamy city of New Orleans in 1974, Amalise Catoir sees Phillip Sharp as a charming, magnetic artist, unlike any man she has known. A young lawyer herself, raised in a small-town Christian home and on the brink of a career with a large firm, she is strong and successful, yet sometimes too trusting and whimsical. Ama’s rash decision to marry Phillip proves to be a mistake as he becomes overly possessive, drawing his wife away from family, friends, and her faith. His insidious, dangerous behavior becomes her dark, inescapable secret.In this lawyer’s unraveling world, can grace survive Ama’s fatal choice? What would you do when prayers seem to go unanswered, faith has slipped away, evil stalks, and you feel yourself forever dancing on shattered glass?
I didn’t love this book, but I didn’t hate it either. By this I am saying that it just wasn’t for me.
The characters were good and the writing was very notable. The plot was fine but it didn’t exactly make me want to read more.
I give my congratulations to the author for writing a good book that people who like women’s romance (esque) fiction will enjoy.

I have received a advanced reader copy from the publisher for review. All thoughts and opinions are mine.

    Thank you Evan. I appreciate your thoughtful review, even though romantic suspense is not for you. Hope you’ll take a look at Secret of the Shroud sometime. It might be more in your line.
