Driver Confessional-by David L. Winters- Book Review

About the book (provided by Litfuse)
Seat belts are recommended if you’re going to open David Winters’ new book, Driver Confessional. Join Antonio, a ride-share driver who winds through the streets of Washington, D.C. in search of his next fare to support his young family and pay law school expenses. His easy manner and Italian good looks lead passengers to disclose a bit more than they intended. On her way to a midnight meeting in a Senate office building, a mysterious woman and her confession plunge Antonio and his police detective brother into international espionage, the Russian mob and corporate excess. Clues add up to danger and car chases pile up on ethical dilemmas.

Ride share driver Antonio cruises the streets of Washington, D.C. looking for his next fare.
He has an unusual gift for relaxing his customers and stimulating their desire to reveal more than they planned. By the completion of their ride, many feel so comfortable that they confess their sins great and small. Antonio’s faith guides his discussions and points him in new directions. Suddenly, his peaceful world is turned upside down by a mysterious business woman. As she heads to a midnight rendezvous, she confesses more than Antonio can handle. Her story sends him into a world of espionage, international terrorism and danger.
And I thought
It was o.k. The plot was good.  The characters were interesting. 
It just took me a while to read.  
I really didn't get into all the descriptive parts about being an 
UBER driver.  It just kind of droned on and on. 
I thought it was interesting however... when I was collecting links to the various retail sites one site didn't have the cover photo but
it did have 3 reviews.  I clicked on them to read to make sure
I had the right book. 

One review described Driver Confessional as a man's book.  
Hmm.  Maybe that's why it just didn't 'click' with me.   My man wouldn't be interested. 

This opinion surprised me because the book is very 'in your face' 
when it comes to sharing about God.  That's not a negative but it
became a little much even for me.  

I liked the premise that Antonio took everyday situations and looked for opportunities to share his faith with people he ran across.  Which is what we all should do.  I just felt it was a little much.  

This is not a book that a non believer would enjoy.  

A seeker might possibly be interested.

A mature believer may or may not enjoy.  

For me this was an o.k. book.  I received a complimentary
copy from Litfuse.  I encourage a visit to the tour and or 
retail sites to read additional reviews. 

This review will post on Litfuse.
