My Review of Nick Of Time by Tim Downs.

Hey everyone,
Today I have another book review for you coming from Tim Downs for his new book, Nick of Time. Below is some info on the book itself and my review is at the bottom.

Tying the knot may be the toughest thing Nick Polchak has ever tried to do.

Nick Polchak is comfortable with bugs. Their world is orderly. He knows where he stands and exactly how to interpret the signs they give him. But a fiancée and an upcoming wedding? Not so much.

That's why—a mere four days before the nuptials—Nick finds himself driving to Philadelphia for the monthly meeting of the Vidocq society. Being among a group of forensic professionals consulting on cold cases will surely allow him to feel useful and normal.

But while there he discovers that a close friend has been murdered . . . and in classic Nick style, begins to follow the trail of evidence rather than returning to his fiancée. Fearing that his one-track mind won't lead him home by Saturday, Alena and three of her dogs go to track him down.

When she finally finds him, nothing is as Alena expected . . . because the twists in this case will surprise even the most dedicated Bug Man fans.

MY REVIEW- Tim Downs has written some pretty different books. This whole Bug Man series was kind of out of my league when it comes to Christian fiction. I have only read a couple of the other Bug Man series but I have heard the rest of them were pretty good. So when this one came out I knew I had to review it! I have to say first off that there are several things I do not care for in this book. There are several terms that are borderline and then there are heroes in the story drinking beer. That to me was not needed. But, these things are something I can pass over and handle.

So, my thoughts on the book? It was a wonderful mystery and great plot!! I am afraid to say too much as I don't want to give anything away, but I was shocked at the ending! Nick has the same sarcastic dialogue as normal and the witty conversations are hysterical. Donavan(coming in from a previous book) has to bail out Nick several times and Alena got on my good list. I wasn't too sure about Nick being married as he is so much of a loner through the other books but Alena is just as different as he is:)

If you have never read any of the Bug Man books, you really need to start from the beg. and read all of them. This is the 6th book in the series and these could get confusing if you don't read them in order. These are well written and even the squirmy scenes I was able to read okay. I am not a big person to read about maggots and flies mixed in with dead bodies, but I did okay through this book.

Another fun, humorous read from Tim Downs and I can't wait to see what he has up his sleeve next. I mean, where would we be without the Bug Man? Totally bored:D

I received a copy of this book from Booksneeze for review purposes. I did not receive any monetary compensation. All thoughts are 100% mine.
