Book Review: Temptation
Book Reviewed by Linda Dominique Grosvenor
Temptation is a refreshing literary effort by first time novelist Victoria Christopher Murray. This book has crossed the line into mainstream fiction, and teaches valuable life-changing lessons. Although this book shows the Christian aspect of dealing with adultery, we can all find ourselves in the characters and are spiritually enlightened along the way.
Temptation is a wild ride of envy, betrayal, deceit, and struggle for forgiveness. This book tests the marital bond to the core! Temptation draws you in and leaves you reaching out to help the characters as if they were close friends. Victoria is a creative storyteller as she shows that "friend" is a label one can wear for years, only to be unmasked, uncovered and revealed for who they really are. Temptation does give you a glimpse of true friendship, and how sisters aren't superheros, just individuals who benefit from the bond we form with our sisterfriends.
This story teaches that even in a perfect marriage doors can be unknowingly left ajar, inviting the ultimate betrayal. Temptation gives you the tools to spot check your own marriage, and seal the cracks around your door! The crafty way this tale is woven together, leaves you not only wondering what happens after the book ends and lives seemingly return to normal, but craving the sequel!
