I like romance novels, however, despite being a Christian, I am not fond of any other genre mixed with Christian teachings.

It is extremely hard to write a story that is relatable and talks about the military and Christianity. I am intrigued by the review. If not for the review, I would have passed on it. The complications are interesting. Here is a soldier who witnesses someone being kidnapped. The kidnap itself foreshadows a lot of entanglements. I wonder what makes that woman so interesting and is there going to be some blackmailing involved? That's where the dark past comes in. Well, I'll at least try the first chapter.

Thanks for the review! This novel sounds like a meaty treat, featuring an action-packed thriller, strong themes, and some romance for desert. You didn't write much about the Christian content in the book, so I'm assuming it's not a huge deal, which is good since this sort of thing doesn't interest me.

It's good to know that the romance between ex-Marine Cody and journalist Brandi is sweet and innocent. The theme of forgiveness sounds like a good one to explore. I'm glad you found message of forgiveness and faith was done well and that the characters were developed well. Having good descriptions is definitely a good one for any book, and it's great that was the case here. Good to hear this was professionally edited and that you found this to be fast-paced. Glad you enjoyed this book and thank you for sharing!

A Christian fiction focused on thriller with a bit of romance is appealing. Overcoming deep scars of the past can be difficult to accomplish and look forward to reading this book. Thanks for your awesome review!

No Pit So Deep by James Nathaniel Miller II is a #Military #Thriller blended with #Action, #Suspense, and #Romance. It follows the #Adventures and #LoveStory of Cody Musket (a former Marine turned professional baseball player who suffers from PTSD) and Brandi Barnes (a gutsy investigative journalist and single mom who has exposed a child-trafficking ring). The story is thrilling, tragic, heartwarming, funny, and inspirational.

Thanks much for the delightful review.

I can really feel the intense drama written into this book . I liked your review and I can tell it was well thought out with great descriptive quality. I come from a family with a long line of military service and women of higher education. I think Cody and Brandi could be cut right out of our family history !!! I love a good intense romance with drama and uncertainty!! Based on your review I truly found myself wanting more !!! Thanks for a great review with a wonderfully descriptive style / delivery !!!!

"No Pit So Deep" is a fast-paced thriller with a romantic touch. The plot seems interesting. The characters of Cody Musket & Brandi Barnes seem well-developed. The sweet & innocent love story along with a strong message about faith & forgiveness makes it a great read. Congrats on BOTD!
