I did not enjoy this book. The characters were weak. At lot of time was spent with the 2 main characters lusting after one another. Not that this is inappropriate I just found it juvenile.

Danger at the Door was really good. I’m giving it 4 stars not because the story was in any way lacking, but because I wish it could have been a little longer, and the crisis a little more drawn-out. I don’t normally read suspense, but this was not too scary, even for me. It isn’t horror at all. This was very different from her other book “Its Not About Me”, as that one is written more toward teens, and this one more toward adults. Though, any age group older teen and up can relate to Sutton’s books, I believe. The romance in this book was more warm/sweet than her other book, though, in typical Sutton-style, she has one very romantic kiss. It seemed to me like the actual conflict with the stalker was a little rushed, but that might be because I was imagining all kinds of long, horrible battles in my mind. I loved Bojan! He is hilarious, and I loved how she used their communication barrier to create funny, awkward, and other kinds of situations throughout the book. Laney’s fears were dealt with in a very unique way, and she is also an amazing character. One thing I love about Sutton’s books is that she always includes God. He becomes another character in the story, not just a deity casually mentioned whenever she thought she had not done so in a while. In our real lives, it should be they same way. He should be a main character, comfortable and familiar. Sutton did a great job of showing everyone’s need for God, while not shoving “religion” down people’s throats.

Danger at the Door is fun, fast-paced, and pure enjoyment. Of course, I never wanted to stop reading, until I got to the last word.
In this e-book by Michelle Sutton, Laney Cooper loses her fiancé to in an auto accident, and becomes agoraphobic. Alone on the anniversary of his death, she memorializes him with a special pizza dinner with all the right trimmings—but no onions. Never with onions. When the pizza is delivered with—you guessed it—onions, Laney takes it out on the delivery man. Bojan Trajkovski, the owner of the restaurant where Laney ordered the pizza had taken over deliveries that night to help his manager. He is appalled that the order was botched, and wants to make it up to her. Because of his thick foreign accent, and miscommunication, Laney finds the man rude, and reports him to who she thinks is the owner. As Bojan continues to shower her with kindness, the two hit it off. Laney eventually becomes his language coach, and a romance is sparked between the two. But danger is lurking in the grounds surrounding Laney’s home. Can she and Bojan figure out who is after her before it’s too late? Can she trust that God will take care of her no matter where she goes?
Not only was the plot lively and fresh, but the characters were extremely so. An agoraphobic heroine, and a hero whose way of speaking made his mess-ups so funny to read were a delight. A highlight of the book. I highly recommend this book for those who love romance, and those who love suspense.

Michelle Sutton's Danger at the Door is an awesome read. Don't be turned off by the ebook format. I was at first because after sitting at computer all day, I wanted to read a book that I could hold in my hands. I'm so glad that I downloded Danger at the Door. Michelle has developed some very memorable characters and a love interest that's to die for. If you like suspense, you'll love it. I haven't read anything in the suspense line this good in about a year since I finished the Brandilyn Collins Kanner Lake series. The suspense is light, just enough to make you keep reading to make sure the heroine is safe. Michelle is an excellent writer who kept me up way too late into the night and made me get up way too early on a Saturday morning with bagel in hand to finish the novel. Even though she brought it to a funny and delightful close, I still begged for more. If you're like me and you love it, we'll have more to love, as I've heard that the sequel is coming out in April. Michelle Sutton you've outdone yourself and I can't wait to read what's coming next in the lives of these two wonderful characters.

Danger at the Door is a great little romance / mystery. I found the storyline completely engaging and I read it front to back in a couple hours! Michelle Sutton did a wonderful job creating intriguing characters who deal with real life passions and fears. I always appreciate the honesty in Michelle's writing because it makes it easy to relate to the characters and their struggles. Danger at the Door is a perfect summer read and I definitely recommend it!

I read the first book in this series last year and really enjoyed the story. I was happy to read this book which features Jovana the sister of Bojan the hero of Danger at the door. We take up the story when Jovana has come to America to live escaping her ex who abused her in many different ways. Jovana is working at Bojan’s Diner. Randy is the manager and is helping keep an eye on Jovana who has limited English. I found it fun reading how easy it was for her to be confused with the American sayings trying to understand what is being said literally when its a saying. Add to the mix Kurt who has designs on Jovana that are anything but nice you have another good light suspense. What I do like about this story is as we learn about the abuse Jovana experienced we also see how shes been conditioned to act in a certain way.
Much like abused children will often test foster parents in a lets see how far I can push till you do what I know you will to me type situation and when the parent doesn’t react the way the child is use to they will then start to trust the family, Jovana also pushes the limits to see how far she can push. I like how Michelle explained the behaviour as if you haven’t been in this sort of situation many of us wouldn’t understood. While being a good book it also gives an insight to how people who have been abused may behave and is a good tool to help us understand these people more. I also love how Jovana is a new Christian and wants to be a better Christian but also struggles with her old life. This too is reality.
A very good read.
