Shaken by Kariss Lynch

When her world is shaken, will her foundation survive?

Idealistic and sheltered with a passion to change the world, Kaylan Richards leaves her comfortable life in Alabama to serve in poverty-stricken Haiti. Despite her inexperience and the opposition of a voodoo priest, Kaylan develops a love for the country and the Haitian people. But something deadly is about to strike.

It is the worst earthquake the country has ever seen, and in its aftermath bodies, buildings, and broken lives litter the streets. People she cares about are dead, and Kaylan is caught in the middle of the destruction, questioning a God who said He was good.

Navy SEAL Nick Carmichael never planned to find a girl he loved more than his country. Now she is a world away, trapped in a deadly situation nothing could have prepared her for. Can Nick’s love help Kaylan heal and show her the God who never abandoned her, or will tragedy shake even the most rooted faith?

Kariss Lynch’s first Heart of a Warrior novel, Shaken, offers a powerful and emotional story of adventure and romance. Kaylan Richards heads to Haiti after graduating college - and just before the earthquake that shook up the country. Learning to trust God and follow His plan, Kaylan strives to make an impact on the Haitian people in the face of the challenges and disaster and simultaneously navigate her complex relationship with Nick Carmichael. Overall, I enjoyed this well-written, interesting and hopeful novel that left me wishing for the second novel in the series, Shadowed. I would certainly recommend it to fans of contemporary inspirational fiction.

Thanks to Booketeria, I received a copy of Shaken and the opportunity to review it honestly. I was not required to provide a positive review, and all the opinions expressed are my own.
