Twists and turns that start on the very first page! From page one, I was pulled into the action and suspense when Aubrey Grayson witnesses a close family friend shot right in front of her and then she's kidnapped. As the plot unfolds, it becomes clear not everything is as it seems and I liked the way Ms. Harris kept increasing the stakes. The romantic tension between Aubrey and Jack continue to grow from an established friendship, which made it feel natural. A thrilling plot and developed...

Solid 3.5--This is a fun story that had me wanting to restore a vintage trailer ASAP! This story is my first Melody Carlson and I enjoyed it. From the very first page I was quickly captured by Dillon Michaels (it took me a hot minute to get used to her name) plight as she makes a quick decision so start over and move home. I loved Dillon's grandpa as he reminded me very much of my own. I had a hard time with the other secondary characters, like Vivian who at first I thought was much older given...

A thrilling hunt that'll have you on the edge of your seats with every turn of the page! Author James Hannibal delivers an exciting sequel that will delight suspense/thriller fans. CIA officer Talia Inger returns with the dynamic team as they hunt an evil enigma going by the name of White Lion. The action begins on page one and doesn't let up bringing one of the coolest casts of characters into the throes of good versus evil. I enjoyed how Mr. Hannibal weaved moral implications throughout and...

Aloha!! I'm Natalie and I write romantic suspense when I'm not dodging dinosaurs with my family. Married to GIJOE, we are currently stationed on the beautiful island of O'ahu and approaching the empty-nest stage of life and I'm not freaked out about that. At. All.

If your an organized, Type A, planner and life doesn't seem to be going your way...this book is for you! I'm a control person and this book not only validated my longing but directed me to the source of plenty, offering my heart peace. The author offers readers the opportunity to search the areas of their hearts, mind, soul, and lives to see where control is lurking and how to release it. I liked that the author also included some song suggestions to further the experience as well as journaling...

This book offers readers a practical and applicable perspective on worry and anxiety. Through the science of understanding where anxiety and worry stem, author Jean Holthaus guides readers through chapters explaining root causes, issues that grow from those roots, and how to prune the unpredictability of life that can cause anxiety and worry to arrive at the beautiful blossoming of life God intended for us. I really appreciate the author's use of Scripture and Biblical stories throughout. I'd...

Thrilling page turner, the first I've read of Mr. Threadgill's and this author knows how to keep you turning pages well into the night--not to mention leave you carrying this story around with you even when you HAVE to put the book down. The gripping plot yanked me into a twisting story that had me on the edge of my seat. I really enjoyed the female lead character and found her development authentic. Secondary characters enhanced the storyline with their unique personalities. The story was...

Amazing!! Lynette Eason does it again and I'm so glad she did! The quick-paced plot sweeps readers from the dangerous and unpredictable setting of Afghanistan to what should be the peaceful, civilian world where a former military psychiatrist and Army Special Ops soldier can rest... The action begins in the first chapter and doesn't quit until the final page making this book a quick read but a very satisfying one. The intricate plot weaves high-octane suspense around the delicate issues of PTSD...

Not a quick read but an intentional read that is worthy of the time. Still is divided into three sections: The Search for Rest, which reveals a bit about the author's background and her own search for rest. Seven Ways to Rest, which offers suggestions for how to achieve REST in spite of the chaos life might be dishing out around us. Rest is a Position, which encourages readers to remain in REST. I enjoyed the authentic tone of the author and her transparency. There was a good deal of...
