Tundra Threat by Sarah Varland

My book review today is on the Love Inspired Suspense, Tundra Threat. This book is well written, action packed, and full of adventure. I love the characters, Sarah did a twist to the relationships of her two leading characters. Her male lead steps back and let the female lead do her job. I always like that even though I know that would be hard for a man. Faith is woven in amongst the story like a tapestry.

McKenna Clark is a Wildlife Trooper in Alaska. She is sent from Anchorage to a small town out in the wilderness. This is suppose to be a promotion but McKenna is out of her league. Her first flight out she comes across two dead bodies, her expertize is on wildlife not murder. She sets out to solve the crime but when her life is threatened she calls her brother, a police officer in Anchorage. Her brother send his best friend to help her and protect her. This is the last man she wants to see after a disastrous teenage crush on the guy.

Will Harrison has known McKenna forever. If not for his relationship with her brother Will would have pursued the beauty. Now here he is thrown together with her, fighting to protect her, and keep her safe. Will knew she was well trained and could handle her job but she had no backup and was out here in the middle of no where alone with a killer own her trail. How can he keep her safe and not fall deeper in love with her?

This is a great journey of a second chance at love and devotion. You will want to purchase a copy right away. You can purchase it at the address below.

His Most Suitable Bride by Renee Ryan

My book review today is own the Love Inspired Historical, His Most Suitable Bride. This book is the eighth book in the Charity House Series. This book is well written and heart warming. I liked the characters very much. This book is all about false pride, overcoming past mistakes, and letting go of the shame. Jesus took our shame in the Garden of Gethsemane so we don't have to bear it any more. I know this book will bless you.

Reese Bennett Jr. decides for business sake, its time to take a wife. He was married once and it was heart breaking to lose her. Now Reese is convinced that a loveless marriage is what he wants. His client  Mrs. Singletary takes on the task, asking him for a list of what he wants in a woman. Her companion takes over the task but as she proceeds his list keeps changing.

Callie Mitchell had a episode in her past that frightened her to the point that she has made herself as dowdy and unattractive as possible. Her employer asks her to take on the task of finding the proper wife for Reese. Her employer also forbids her to dress as she has been. Now that she is dressed properly her employer thrust her out in society instead of allowing her to hide on the sidelines.

A really cute story, quiet humorous, and it will touch your heart. You really must get a copy. You can find a copy at the address below.

Out of the Shadows

Today, instead of writing a book review I'm going to talk to you about my own book, Out of the Shadows. This is the first book I wrote and is very dear to my heart. This book contains a great deal of my own personal testimony. When I look back to the events that took place over forty years ago it seems more like a movie I once saw. God has done such a total healing of my heart.

I was talking to my grand daughter the other day and I told her that when I first got a divorce all I could remember was the bad times; every hurt, the pain, the isolation, and total destruction of my soul. Years later when I was saved and Spirit filled, I was able to forgive my husband. God then began to give back the good memories. No matter how devastating the relationship is there was once good, happy times. My grand daughter is going through a divorce and I hope my experiences help her to heal.

Glori Rhoades married the wrong man and was in the process of getting a divorce but her husband was refusing to acknowledge it. Dragging Glori to a party, he leaves her alone, and then throws a fit when his best friend talks to her. Jake takes her back to the apartment and beats her in an attempt to kill her. His fellow police officers stops the attack and sends for help. Jake escapes the police and sets out to finish the job he had started. If he can't have Glori then no one else would.

Michael had once been in love with Glori until his best friend moved in and took over after a misunderstanding. Michael has tried to stay a way from Glori and forget how he felt about her. He wanted to remain a friend of Jake's but now he fears for Glori's life. He will do everything in his power to keep her safe.

God gave me this story and as it parallels with my story it is a healing bomb to the horrors I lived with. I want everyone to know that there is life after an abusive relationship. When you are going through the abuse you feel you are the only one that has to live like that, (especially forty years ago when no one talked about the problem) that there is no hope, no way out but there is hope now. Jesus is there to save you physically as well as spiritually all you have to do is ask. Not only will He heal your broken body but He has a plan for you, a wondrous plan, that you couldn't even imagine. Know that God has thousands of men and women of God who are out there working to save the victims of abuse. God loves you and will heal your broken hearts.

You can purchase a copy of this book on Amazon, Lulu, and other places where books are sold. It's just been revised, I have to apologize, the first time a friend of mine published it and I didn't  explain that I wanted it in single spaced and so it was double spaced and there were a lot of spaces between chapters. I think it's much better now. I hope you will check it out and let me know how you enjoy the book. God bless you all and have a good week.

She lost one of her best friends. (the nephew of the man her mother destroyed) Stephen was a cop killed in the line of duty. Now she receives a call from Jordan a teen she is trying to help, he knows who killed Stephen. When answering the call she is shot at.

Detective Clay Starke (once dubbed a bad boy by the town) has returned home to work temporarily for the Sheriff, hoping to find Stephen's (his brother) killer. He is called out to back up the social worker but gets there just as someone starts taking shots at her. Clay makes it his job to keep Sabrina and Jordan's two young siblings safe and find Jordan and learn what he knows about who killed his brother. They go from one deadly situation to another.

Married by Christmas by Karen Kirst

My book review today is on the Love Inspired Suspense book, Married by Christmas. This book is the next book in the Smokey Mountain Matches Series. I have loved this series and this book was one of my favorites. I liked that for Christmas she brought many of the characters from past books back to visit. It's always cool to find about those characters and how they are doing. I love the way Karen writes.

Rebecca Thurston is a broken, bitter woman. Years ago she had been part of a threesome, they had been best friends, but then Rebecca became engaged to Adam, one of those men. Adam and Caleb had been inseparable and in a freak accident Adam and Caleb are injured. Adam is unable to walk again and breaks off the engagement and left town. Rebecca blamed Caleb for ruining her life. Now her parents were gone and Rebecca and her little sister were struggling to survive. During a bad snow storm Rebecca's dog alerts her and takes her to a wounded man. The badly wounded man turned out to be Caleb. She took him home and nursed him. She spent several days alone with him trying to save his life but the town gossips declare she must marry the man.

Badly scared Caleb has spent years in solitary existence because of the guilt he feels for what happened that night. He has always watched over Becca from the side lines, bringing meat and supplies in the night when no one will know and asking his brother to check on them. Now he has witnessed a murder of a good friend. Wounded, his horse brings him to the place he remembers well. When Caleb wakes he finds Rebecca nursing him, Fear floods his heart for her and her sister, this outlaw band would surely find him and hurt the girls. When he is on the mend and he hears the town is demanding their marriage he promises Rebecca he will leave as soon as he's able and will live up in the mountains like he had been. She wouldn't have to see him. They then marry a marriage on paper only.

As Christmas comes closer the gang finds Rebecca but doesn't realize she is his wife. Scared beyond words she agrees to move into Caleb's cabin. Now she has his family to deal with on top of a gang of killers. A great journey of forgiveness, restoration, and love. God has a plan even when we sometimes move out of His will. He will restore us to the original plan. You'll love this book, you can get a copy at the address below.
