fearless by Mike Dellosso

Book Description:  A child mysteriously appears in the lives of Jim and Amy Spencer. Will her presence be a blessing…or a curse? 
 When a nine-year-old girl named Louisa mysteriously appears in the middle of a house fire with no memory of how she got there or where she came from, Jim and Amy Spencer agree to take her in. Wrestling with the recent loss of their own child, Amy is hurt and angry while Jim is just trying to make it through each day and hold their marriage together.
 For Jim, Louisa is the daughter he always wanted, but Amy isn’t as comfortable with her. The girl has a special gift, and soon that gift will unknowingly push them all into contact with a serial killer who has been terrorizing the small town of Virginia Mills. Only by uniting can Jim and Amy save themselves and Louisa before it’s too late.

My Thoughts:  This is the first book I've read by Mike Dellosso.  fearless is one whopper of a read!  
At first, I wasn't sure if I wanted to read fearless because, well, the book cover looks a tad "odd."  In a kind.of scary.way this book cover made me think of a half buried young girl.  
But again, never judge a book by its cover!
This thriller begins a little slowly . . . slow as in getting to know each character . . . building up to a relentless show of hands.
Jim and Amy a  married couple with no children.  Louisa the nine year old girl who shows up from the flames of a house fire.  The serial killer who preys on innocents, seeking respect.  And a story that goes deeper than an Arizona well in a dry desert.
Louisa is a sweet, kind young girl.  But where did she come from, where does she belong?  This is where the suspense part of the story begins.  Can Jim and Amy save the little girl?  Is she someone's daughter or an angel?  Who is Louisa and what does she bring?
An interesting take on Christian thriller/suspense genre.  This is not my usual type of reading but I found this story intriguing.
This suspenseful read will take the reader on a thrilling journey and maybe, just maybe, the reader will shed a tear at the end of this sweet thriller.
