My Thoughts:

Creed by Susan May Warren concludes The Minnesota Marshalls series. I recommend reading the novels in order as the Marshall siblings are plentiful. It takes time to know the siblings and their significant others, all of which are present in Creed.

Like the other installments in The Minnesota Marshalls, Creed had plenty of danger and suspense. The story held my attention throughout, and I enjoyed revisiting this loud, heroic, larger-than-life family. Creed gained my admiration with his resilience and desire to overcome. He had physical impairment, relational obstacles, and a heartbreaking past, but he grasped his future and protected his loved ones. However, underlying this fortitude, a spiritual thread in the story addressed human frailty and the need for one’s hope and spiritual strength to come from God. Overall, the suspense, romance, and spiritual themes were well-balanced.

Although I liked many aspects of Creed, the ending displeased me. After reading five books, I was ready for closure and the author left several situations open-ended. I understand she is likely setting up for another series, but it was a huge disappointment to me. I would have given this book four stars, but due to the open ending and lack of satisfaction, it only gets three.
