Eli’s Promise (by Ronald Balson) … WWII historical fiction

I really enjoyed previous books by the author that involved Taggert and Lockhart.  However, Eli’s Promise did not appeal to me as much.  I enjoy historical fiction, especially about WWII.  And the author does a good job telling the story of Eli Rosen who suffers through the horrors of the Nazi invasion.  I wasn’t as happy with this book.  I felt like the story was a little stilted and the characters were not as well developed.  I just could not get invested in the book.

While I enjoyed the mystery portion of the book and the multiple time lines, I felt like I needed more from the characters beyond Eli and Max.

I look forward to reading additional books from the Taggert and Lockhart series and hope the author will spend some time taking us back to the adventures we experience with them. Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for my advanced review copy.  All opinions and thoughts are my own.
