I was given a free copy of Disillusioned by Christy Barritt, in exchange for my HONEST opinion about the book.
First, let me share that I am a mystery book lover. It is my favorite fiction genre. The caveat is that I personally do not handle gore, sex, and bad language. Same with movies. Call me what you want, but that’s how I roll. Images get stuck in my head and I don’t relish that. I feel too deeply. Give me a fun and clean mystery and I’m all over it. I know some would say there is nothing nice and tidy (or clean) about murder and I see where that’s true; I guess that shows how quirky I can be.
All that being said, I loved Disillusioned. I could barely put it down, and actually found myself asleep on my Kindle at 2:00 am more than once. Christy did not disappoint me.
Disillusioned by Christy Barritt: The Story Line

Rumors spread about his escape and his role in the terrorist organization. Nikki wants to believe in his innocence, but can she?
When Nikki and Bobby are attacked while leaving the hospital, and they have to run for their lives, Bobby calls the only other person he can trust, Kade; Nikki’s former fiance.
While hiding out from an unknown enemy, Kade, Bobby, and Nikki must try to undo the web if deceit that surrounds them. Whom can they trust?
Disillusioned by Christy Barritt: My Conclusion
This book read more like a thriller than a mystery, all the way to the end. There’s a little romance sprinkled in to make it a perfect and fun read.
Reader beware: this is a Christian novel. While it is not preachy, God and faith are mentioned as Nikki struggles with her beliefs. If this offends you, then you may want to skip this book. If not, then enjoy!
