No Less Days by Amanda G Stevens

Amanda G. Stevens is a new to me author. Browsing at one of the closest brick and mortar bookstore we've got (40 minutes from my house) I stumbled across No Less Days.  The cover drew my attention and the description was intriguing so I added it to my pile!
Here is the description from the back of the book:
How many lifetimes can God expect one man to live? Over a century old, David Galloway isolates himself childfrom the mortal humans who die or desert him by making a quiet life as a used bookstore owner in Northern Michigan But then he spots a news article about a man who, like him, should be dead. 
Daredevil celebrity Zachary Wilson walked away unscathed from what should have been a deadly fall. David tracks the man down, needing answers. Soon David discovers a close-knit group of individuals as old as he is who offers the sort of kinship and community he hasn't experienced for decades--but at what cost?
David finds himself keeping secrets other than his own...protecting more than himself alone. He'll have to decide what's worth the most to him--security or community. When crimes come to light that are older than any mortal, he fears the pressure is more than he can stand. What does God require of him, and is David strong enough to see it through?
 Driven by a unique plotline with interesting characters and an unexpected plot twist, I finished this one quickly. Once done, I took the time to think about how I would deal with not being able to die, so much to learn and see but also losing everyone that I love over and over again. I found some of the character development happened a little fast, but overall I would give this book 3.5-4 stars. I will pass it on with good recommendations.
