Above the Fold | Book Review

I have been eagerly waiting to read my friend Rachel Scott McDaniel’s debut novel Above the Fold. It far exceeded my expectations, you all!

Where to begin?

This story is a page turner from the very start. Her witty & clever voice carries through this novel from beginning to end.

I absolutely loved the faith and redemption aspects of this book—woven perfectly throughout the story.

I adored Elissa and Cole’s characters. Well done Rachel! Elissa, the sassy reporter, Cole the charming man who had left her behind when he should have stayed. But going away was probably the best thing for both of them. Cole was able to face his fears, conquer his inner turmoils (that nearly killed him)… and find true redemption through his Maker. Rachel, I loved how you didn’t shy away from bringing up very real struggles while leaving your reader with hope.

And the mystery! I am a sucker for mystery and adventure. Rachel, you brought your A game with this one. I thought for sure I had the ending figured out.

I was wrong. And I can’t be more pleased to admit it.

Rachel Scott McDaniel has an amazing ability to paint a picture with her words—and transport her readers to the press world of Pittsburgh in the 1920’s.

From the Back Cover

After losing the love of her life to a big city journalism job, Elissa Tillman pours herself into the suffragette movement and her secretarial work helping keep her father’s Pittsburgh newspaper afloat.

Cole Parker returns to the steel city with the phantom failures of his past nipping his heels. All he asks of the future is a second chance with the woman he once spurned.

The murder of a millionaire offers the perfect chance for Elissa to prove to her father and the world that she’s a serious journalist. But there’s a catch—she has to compete for the story. Against none other than Cole Parker, the very man who shattered her heart.

This fresh story gets a five star from me! I can’t wait for Rachel Scott McDaniel’s next release.
