Book Review: "Prison" by Toni V. Lee
Sonja Grey and Max Trent are narcotics detectives and Max always gets on Sonja's nerves, so when their Sergeant pairs them up for an undercover drug operations, things could get a little tense. It isn't a normal stake out, either. It's going down at Sonja's church. Will they get their man without any of the church congregation getting involved, and find a way to express their true feelings for each other?
This was the first book I've read by Toni Lee. I felt that she did a good job of portraying the African-American culture. I felt like I was there with Sonja and her "Aunties" at the Prayer Tabernacle. They made me laugh at their antics. I felt slightly lost with some of the secondary characters' backstories, but I discovered that they were introduced in a previous book called "Expectations".
I received a free digital copy of this books from booklookbloggers when I requested to review another book. I wasn't sure if I would like the book, but why turn down a free book? Well, it turns out I enjoyed the book quite a bit. There is some action and suspense thrown in along with the romance. There is no sex in the book, but a couple of the characters had previously had intimate relations before they were Christians. The gospel message is clearly given.
"Prison" is available in paperback:
