My Thoughts of The Last Operative by Jerry Jenkins, Plus GIVEAWAY!


Well, I told you all earlier that I would have a book review with a 12 winner signed book giveaway. I am sure you all have been waiting anxiously:) Well, Jerry Jenkins has graciously offered to give 12 of my blog readers a signed copy of his new book, The Last Operative. Did you all get that!! 12 of you will win a copy of his book!! He has been very kind in offering this. So, read to the end and find out how to enter:)

This novel I found very interesting as it had originally been published years ago and Jerry Jenkins recently re-wrote it. I thought this was very neat. The basic idea of this book is a lone operative who wants to get out of the business. But then he gets handed some information that only he can do something with. People around him are being murdered and he is the reason.

This was a little bit of a different book for what I am used to reading by Jerry Jenkins. I am not sure if it is the re-writing or the difference of not reading a book that he has co-written. I have read the Left Behind series and the Soon and Silenced books. I guess one of the big things I didn't care for was the whole deal with his wife and his ex. I don't want to give too much away but it seems he had a girlfriend before he got married. Well, he never told his wife about this woman. Even though he had been married for over 20 years. You will have to find out what I mean and maybe it is just me but I wanted to bring it up.

Now, for the giveaway, you have to leave a comment telling me if you have read anything by Jerry Jenkins before. That is it and there is only one entry. No extras!!

I did receive a free copy of this book inexchange for my review. I did not receive any monetary compensation. All thoughts are 100% mine.
This giveaway will end 7/12. Winners will be chosen through Random.org.

I have read the Left Behind series...well, until I had to start waiting more than a year for the next book to come out. Still, the series was gripping. It was very generous of Jerry Jenkins to give 12 signed copies away!
