Identity: Classified by Liz Shoaf

My review today is on the Love Inspired Suspense, Identity: Classified. Liz is a fairly new author for LIS but her books are awesome. I look forward to reading her next book. This story is well written, action packed, and humorous. You really need to get this book.
Security Specialist Chloe Spencer is watching one of her client's monitor when the man is killed. The killer shoves his face in front of the computer and tells her he wants "the disk" or her adopted father will be next. His messenger is coming to pick it up. Having no idea what the man is talking about, she packs up her dog and runs. Her "go bag" has a new identity and everything she should need. She lands in Jackson Hole, she should be safe here. When men arrive about the same time she does she knows she's in trouble. Can she trust the sheriff or try to go it alone? 
Sheriff Ethan Hoyt is a widower and the father of a young daughter. He knows from the moment he sees Chloe that this woman is going to be trouble. After speaking to the intriguing woman his gut is tied up in knots. As she drives off on her Harley another car from New York drives by. Two cars from New York seems kind of strange to Ethan. It soon becomes evident that someone is after Chloe. How can he keep her safe when she is full of secrets she won't share?
A journey of terror as Chloe and Ethan end up searching through her past. Were her parents really missionaries or was that a front for illegal activities? God has a plan for them, a plan for a hope and a future. God has a plan for you too. Give Him a chance.

My review today is on the romantic suspense, Sanctuary Lost. This is the first book in the WITSEC Town Series. I always enjoy Lisa's book and this is an interesting concept, a town made up of only people under WITSEC protection. A town no one knows about but the US Marshals.

Winter Mourn by Mary Stone

My review today is on the thriller, Winter Mourn. This is the first book in the Winter Black Series. This book is awesome! It is well written and full of twists and turns. It's not a Christian book, which is what I usually read. I must warn my faithful followers that there is foul language, it's not excessive but it is there. The story line is a bit dark but it is intriguing and I know you will not be able to put it down.
Winter Black has become an FBI agent. Her family had been murdered when she was only thirteen. Her parents were dead and her baby brother taken; she had been struck in the head and left for dead. Upon waking up from the coma she finds that she has some supernatural powers from the head injury. These powers now help her as she searches for her family's killer, "The Preacher". (Read the Prequel)
The body of a small boy has been found near her home town. The body has been buried for years. Winter and her partner are called to the site. Before going to the site someone leaves a picture of her baby brother in his Sponge Bob pajamas the night he was kidnapped. Winter knows when she arrives that this body isn't her baby brother but she can see a red rim glowing all around the perimeter. She suggests a cadaver dog be called.
FBI Agent Noah Dalton isn't sure what is going on but he does know that Winter has some kind of sense that he doesn't have. He has seen her at work and what ever she does it works so he agrees that they must call for the dog. They soon find that this is a graveyard of some serial killer. They found several small children's bodies. What kind of monster is this?
A strange journey of twists and turns. It seems every time they turn around they are finding more dead bodies. Can they figure out what is going on and catch the killer? Since "The Preacher" has made several anonymous visits to her room; is he the one that killed these little children?

Reluctant to Wed by Anneliese Dalaba

My review today is on the Regency Romance, Reluctant to Wed. This is a Christian Regency Romance. I'm not sure why most authors of Regency or Medieval Romances think they must be full of sex. I'm always thrilled when I find Christian or clean romance authors. I hope to read more of Anneliese's work. This book is well written, heartwarming and full of faith. I know you are going to love it.
Emma Houlton was raised in America on a small farm. Her father and mother had eloped and left England because his father, Baron Houlton, refused to acknowledge a vicar's daughter as his son's wife. Recently the Baron asked to be allowed to bring his granddaughter to England to complete a marriage contract that he had made years ago; in return he gave her mother (her father had died) a great deal of money to save the farm. Emma felt a since of duty to her father to go even though her mother didn't really want her to go and warned her of the Baron's temperament. She felt that God was directing her to fulfill the contract. She believed the marriage would grow into a love match. She crossed the ocean in the company of her uncle. She was pleased when she saw her betrothed but didn't understand why he kept himself away from her. He is court her right?

He refuses to be henpecked like his brother is. He keeps himself aloof until the Baron tells him his health is deteriorating.
