Mirror Image by Laura Scott

My review today is on the Love Inspired Suspense, Mirror Image. This is one of the SWAT:Top Cop Series. I have really enjoyed this series about SWAT teams. Laura has a great way of dealing with this group. She is a great writer. This book is well written, action packed and full of adventure. I also love how she deals with the faith issue through out this book.

SWAT Officer Jenna Reed returns home after a long day and is attacked in front of her house. She would have been kidnapped if it hadn't been for her lieutenant going by and rescuing her. They find a look-alike hidden in the bushes could this be the real victim? It seems Jenna has a sister she never knew about. The sister had come to her for help as a human trafficking gang is after her.

Lieutenant Griff Vaughn rescues his team member but when the human trafficking thugs come after them he has no choice but to take the girls and go on the run. Griff has always been attracted to his beautiful co-worker. Can he save her and her sister without destroying his already broken heart?

This is a journey of two broken people, three actually. Life had not been good to them, can they learn to trust again? They are forced into a situation where they must trust not only each other but the God who holds all the answers. God has a plan for these two. God has a plan for you to you just need to believe and let Him work in your life.

Code of Silence by Heather Woodhaven

My review today is on the Love Inspired Suspense, Code of Silence. I don't know about you but I'm very happy that Heather joined the LIS family. I really enjoy her books. This one is well written, action packed, and full of faith. I liked her characters; although flawed they struggle to overcome their background.

Gabriella Radcliffe is trying to deal with the death of her beloved mother when she is attacked and told she has twenty-four hours to hand over the evidence her mother had collected from the Mafia or her aunt would die. Gabriella wasn't aware that her own mother was the daughter of the notorious Mirabella Mafia Family. She was to show her home to an old friend in hopes he would buy it and renovate it but is forced to go with these thugs. Luke comes to help her but arrives as the men leave. She tried to make him leave too but when they enter the house it has been ransacked. He wants to call the police but that's not an option.

Luke McGuire was ready to go to Gabby's home for a tour but she doesn't come into his office but is seen arguing with two men and then taken away with them. He gets in his vehicle and goes to her ranch. When he arrives a black SUV is leaving She is obviously shaken as they go inside only to be attacked by another man. He takes their phones and keys and demands a tour of the property. How can Luke protect her from this new mafia guy? How do they survive a internal mafia war?

A great journey to find the hidden evidence and survive these mafia killers. They are drawn together as they search the panic room they lock themselves in and her mothers other favorite spots. God has a plan for these two and he will bring them through. God has a plan for you too. You must learn to trust Him and give Him control of you life and He will show you great and wondrous things to come.

More Than Gold by Terri Grace

My review today is on the first book of the Mail Order Brides Of Rainbow Mountain Series, More Than Gold. I liked this book very much and look forward to the other books in this series. I have always liked stories of the mail order brides or marriages of convenience. What a desperate situation to find your self into. This story is well written and heart warming.

Seth and Constance MacLeod are married. It's the happiest day in their lives but it soon comes to an end when Seth loses his job. Fearing for the future, Seth heads to Montana territory to find gold. He promises to only be gone a couple of weeks.

Things become much harder for her as all of their savings is spent and there is no sign of her husband. Ladies from the church step up and help her as things become more than she can handle.

They both must learn to trust God through all the trials and tribulations. God has a plan. We to must learn to trust God through our trials. God has a great plan for us you just have to make Him your Lord and give Him the right to intervene in your situation. You will be amazed.
