My thoughts:

Stealing Jenny is a Christian novel and I'm surprised that I didn't have any problem reading it. I have read some Christian novels in the past and I didn't like most of them because they're too focused on the moral values, you know those books teaching you what's right and wrong, I'm not really comfortable reading Christian novels that are too "clean". Stealing Jenny in my opinion is not overly religious book, I actually enjoyed reading it. 

I liked the characters especially Jenny and Tom Callahan. They're both religious but they are not perfect.  I enjoyed reading the flashbacks of Jenny and Tom's relationship, back when they were still dating. They have had some mistakes in the past and I liked the way they handled it.

I liked the suspense in the story, I know what it feels like to have a sensitive pregnancy and I was wondering the whole time I was reading the book what I would do if I was in Jenny's situation. What I would do if somebody stole my baby? The story is well-written, if you are into suspense story, you might want to pick up this book.

About the book:

After three heartbreaking miscarriages, Tom and Jenny Callahan are happily anticipating the birth of their sixth child. Their neighbor, however, is secretly hatching a sinister plot which will find Jenny and her unborn baby fighting for their lives.
