    One thought on “A Touch of Betrayal”

    1. Amazing!!! Quite possibly my favorite in the series yet (with #1 coming in at a close second. ;)). This book was intense- full of intrigue and suspense. The cultural aspects all throughout the book were interesting and gave the plot historical charm. I really enjoyed learning about the different tribes and clans of Kenya and their customs; the Maasai in particular. Grant and Alexandra were an awesome couple and their journey of faith in surrendering to Christ and finding Truth in their difficult [...]

    2. It's not really accurate to say I read this book. 7% of the way through, I abandoned it. Boy, am I glad it was a library book! To be fair, it might be well-written, maybe even interesting. I'm just not into books that mention religion in nearly every paragraph, and whose protagonist appears to think of little else. Someone who wishes fiction were not so secular, or who enjoys deeply religious protagonists might really enjoy this. To me, tho, it was preachy & the constant religiousness intrus [...]

    3. This has been an awesome series. Every time I think the author can't do better, she wows me again with the next book. The first two books centered around 2 different Thonton sisters. This one centers on the only Thornton brother, Grant. There was more suspense in this book, with a hit man after the other main character, and it was cool to have some of the characters from the other books make an appearance.I found myself envying Grant for his lifestyle out away from modern conveniences. I really [...]

    4. I have read this book so many times and each time I have found something different I did not notice the first time through. This is such a wonderful piece of work which keeps you turning the page.

    5. I think this was my favorite of the three in this series. This is told from the point of view of Grant (Tillie and Jessica's brother) who lives in tents with no modern conveniences in Africa near a tribe that he is studying. The heroine is Alexandra Prescott who is a fabric designer from New York looking for design inspiration from the wilds of Africa. They meet at the airport and she mistakes him for a derelict. He's there to pick up Mama Hannah who is the African woman who raised him and his s [...]

    6. #3 in the Treasures of the Heart Series.A hired killer, betrayal, money, & surviving in the wilds of Kenya - Alexandra's trip to Africa is turning into a nightmare. But the country captures her heart too - not to mention the Maasai tribe, Mama Hannah, & a certain nomadic anthropologist by the name of Grant Thornton.#1 #2 #4I love how Africa is brought to life in this series!

    7. Third in the Heartquest trilogy, but complete in itself. Alexandra, an American fashion designer, goes on a business trip in Kenya, expecting to have a holiday as well as produce some exotic new sketches with ideas for designs. She is wealthy and enjoys all the conveniences of Western life. Then she meets Grant, who lives in a tent and cares nothing for material possessions. They are thrown together, and then meet again after Alexandra has a terrifying ordeal. Quite a tense book, wihch makes a g [...]

    8. While I like some of her topics on faith and she challenges me to clarify my beliefs I am not connecting to this adventure series. One area I liked especially was ( not an exact quote) you have to go beyond belief and truly surrender. How to surrender. What to surrender. Things like pride, self reliance, intellect. A second example when the scientist wonders how can you make faith your foundation when you cannot even touch it

    9. Neither I am a Christian nor I've ever read the two first books of the triology.Nevertheless,it was considerably touching for me in aspect of the romance in the book,it was moving how Alexandra's point of view of love and life itself changed meeting with Grant.Two distinguishing characters finding a mutual understanding to get alongOne more thing,I learned a great deal of life in Africa,the rituals and so on

    10. I enjoyed reading this novel. It was captivating in many ways. I loved learning about Kenya and the different tribes. The characters were endearing and very real. The love that grows between Grant and Alexandra s beautiful because it crosses many boundaries and overcomes a great deal. A great read :)

    11. The third installment in the Treasures of the Heart series, A Touch of Betrayal delivers delicious romantic tension, adventure, and faith. A great series to read in any order. 4.6 Stars

    12. The third book in this series, however stands on its own. There were a couple parts I rolled my eyes at, but overall enjoyed this fast paced read.

    13. I really enjoyed reading this series. The characters were fun to get to know and the suspense was good, although somewhat predictable. I thought this was a good quick read.

    14. Not the kind of book I usually read. It was an interesting story although predictable and contrived in places. I did enjoy the descriptions of life in Africa.

    15. I remember that I really like this book, but it's been so long since I read it I really need to read it again.
