I have never read any of Heather's books before but I am very impressed by this book. I have had it on my Kindle for quite a while but it got lost somehow. I hope to read more of her work. This story is well written, heartwarming, and inspirational. In my own book Operation Rescue, I deal with women who have been caught up in human trafficking. Dealing with the after effects of force prostitution is a difficult thing. I appreciate how Heather dealt with it in this book.

Told of a building that was built to be a hotel but isn't finished; she goes to the man and offers to buy the building. The man owns the whole town and is evil in Naomi's eyes.
Charles McIntire is a southern gentlemen. He has worked his way to the top of his world. He owns several saloons, brothels, and a huge gold vein that run under the town. He owns this place and the people in it. Now he wants to make the town more respectable so that the railroad would be willing to come through town. When a beautiful young woman comes to his saloon he offers her a job as one of his saloon flowers. She is insulted and explains her plans for the hotel and restaurant. He likes the idea even though she explains about God wanting her to live her and evangelize the town. He plays a game of blackjack with her and gives her the building.
Charles has a hard time keeping these beauties safe from the filthy drunk miners. But he didn't realize he would have trouble with his flowers too; especially the one he sleep with. It is going to take more than he realize to make this place respectable. God has a plan for these two and this place. It's a good plan for a hope and a future. God has a plan for you too, a good plan and not for evil. Give Him your heart and watch Him move in your life.

Fatal Response by Jodie Bailey

My review today is on the Love Inspired Suspense. Fatal Response. I'm always thrilled to get one of Jodie's books in the mail. She's one of my favorites. This story is well written action packed and full of faith. I know you are going to love this one.
Firefighter Erin Taylor is at the fire station alone. It's been a long night and she has cleaned and buffed every thing in sight.She is having a restless night. For the last two weeks a dark car would drive into the parking lot. It would shine the headlights into the station, the engine stayed on, and no one ever got out; then it would leave. The random drive-bys poked her creepy-meter a little bit. No one else seemed bothered about it but her. Tonight she heard a noise out back. A little red Mustang comes in hot, a young woman gets out and comes towards Erin saying please don't hurt him. Erin backs up. The dark sedan comes roaring up the driveway and hits the woman. As she's feeling for a pulse, footsteps run up behind her. Oh no her ex-husband!
Army Sergeant First Class Jason Barnes tries to get to the woman before she was struck by the car. He was to late but grabs the other woman by the waist. He wasn't going to let anyone else die on his watch. She repays him by driving her head into the side of his jaw. She breaks away from him and turns on him like a tornado, a very familiar tornado.  He had rescued his ex-wife.
A struggle of these two broken souls as someone is trying to kill all of Jason's team's families. God has a plan for these two, a plan for a hope and a future. God has a plan for you too, a good plan and not for evil. Give Him your heart and watch Him work in your life.
