Amazon Reviews - 5 out of 5 Stars

As gripping as its prequel, this book is full of unexpected twists and excitement. Sequels often don't live up the expectations built up by their predecessors, but this one is the glowing exception! Definitely a book I would recommend to any of my friends without hesitation. I'll actually be passing both books on to some friends very soon!

I really enjoyed the second installment in the Wings of the Dawn series. Abby Grant goes on a vacation with her brothers and friends hoping to have a relaxing time after her crazy summer internship, but yet again finds herself in the midst of El Gato's scheming ways. The reader gets to know the old characters better and will really like the new ones introduced (a certain helpful secretary comes to mind). The author weaves together both story and characters in a way that isn't over the top, but rather keeps them grounded which makes the book more relatable to the reader.

If you're looking for a series on par with the Nancy Drew mysteries of years ago, look no further. Ms. Hogrefe weaves a tale of suspense and mystery that involves codes, Cold-War spies, terrorist organizations, and incriminating documents. This book will have you reading into the night as you follow Abby, our young heroine, through danger and plots.

Ms. Hogrefe creates believable, empathetic, Christian characters who inhabit a world so accurately portrayed that you'll feel like you are walking on Lake Winona's beaches. But watch your step, because danger lies around every corner!

A Great Mystery
March 16, 2013

What a great book for readers of all ages! If you like mysteries that keep you on the edge of your seat then this book is for you. It is loaded with action and intrigue. Told from a Christian perspective, the characters are both interesting and real. They struggle with real life issues of forgiveness and faith. And..... the door is left open for more books to come!

This book is a great read! Wings of the Dawn contains a great mystery story for young adults. The author utilizes biblical and Christian principles throughout her book by portraying them in her characters. I liked that the characters were realistic and they didn't become something that the plot required, but rather reacted as they would in whichever the situations the found themselves. I have ordered the sequel, Wings of the Dawn, Book 2: Secrets Beyond Lake Winona's Shore, and am eagerly waiting for its arrival!
