Heidi and Isaiah are part of the rescue team sent out to help airplane crash victims.

Join the search and rescue team as they fight for their lives in white out conditions, held captive by a team of rouge men and woman. Not only are Heidi and Isaiah fighting the bad guys but they fight a strong attraction and overprotective brother on this roller coaster ride.

If you are ready for an Alaskan adventure be sure to read Untraceable. I give book 2 of Elizabeth Goddard’s Mountain Cove series 5 stars. It is filled with adventure, spiritual tidbits and romance. This fast paced book can be read as a stand alone or as part of the series. I have read both and loved them. Elizabeth Goddard has done a outstanding job of breathing life into this phenomenal book. She was able to weave her strong faith into the storyline in a believable way that added to the authenticity of the characters.

I want to give a high-five to the author Elizabeth Goddard and publisher Love Inspired Suspense for bringing compelling Christian books that are entertaining and give hope to the reader with stories of faith. I was provided with this book in exchange for my honest review and I am so grateful for the authors and publishers generosity.

Photo & Book Descritpion from http://www.barnesandnoble.com/

 

Book Description:After a youth filled with tragedy and upheaval, Sarah Miller's life is finally settled with all echoes of the past silent at last. She happily calls Sanctuary her home and spends her days teaching at the local school.
Sarah's joy at her recent reunion with her sister, Hannah, and meeting the niece she didn't know she had is too soon interrupted when Deputy Sheriff Paul Gleason informs Sarah her sister has been killed.
As she learns more about Hannah's death, the circumstances are eerily similar to their parents' murder. Sarah enlists Paul's help in digging deeper into the murders the police are dismissing as burglaries gone wrong. Paul's concern encourages Sarah's growing feelings for him, but as their investigation peels back the layers of lies almost twenty years old, they get close to uncovering the truth one person will do anything to hide--even if that means coming after the last remaining members of the Miller family.

My Review: Deadly Echoes, book 2 in Finding Sanctuary Series by Nancy Mehl

Christian, Romance, Suspense

Bethany House

ISBN 9780764211584

Sarah Miller hide’s in a closet with her sister Hannah as they hear the horror of their parents being murdered. Sarah finally finds a safe haven in Sanctuary until that fateful visit from a sheriffs deputy, informing her of her sisters demise. She is left to raise her 10 year niece Cicely. When Hannah’s murder starts to look similar to the death of their parents, she turns to Deputy Paul Gleason. With his help they investigate the twenty year murder of her parents. Romance is on the horizon as they encounter danger, twist and turns and wonder who can be trusted. .

Deadly Echoes will capture and hold your attention from the very start. Nancy Mehl captivates her audience with action, fast paced fiction filled with inspiring faith and suspense. She has done a fantastic job of bring life to Deadly Echoes. I highly recommend this 5 star book and any of her others. It is book 2 in the Finding Sanctuary series but can be read as a stand alone. If you have not read book 1 Gathering Shadows, you are missing a great book. I hope there will be a book 3 in this series. GREAT JOB Nancy Mehl.

I want to give a high-five to the author Nancy Mehl and publisher Bethany House for bringing compelling Christian books that are entertaining and give hope to the reader with stories of faith. I was provided me with this book in exchange for my honest review and I am so grateful for the authors and publishers generosity.

 Gathering Shadows

On A Ring and A Prayer by Sandra D. Bricker



On A Ring & A Prayer: A Jessie Stanton Novel - Book 1 by Sandra D. Bricker

Christian Fiction

ISBN 978-1426711602

Abingdon Press

Jessie Stanton had it all. She had the mansion, husband and any martial possessions every girl dreams of. After fourteen years of marriage she witnesses her car being towed, her credit cards are declined and her husband and his belonging are gone. He has left her homeless and taken anything with value. I laughed with her and my heart broke for her but she is one resilient chic. She handles each and every bump in the road with grace and dignity. She finds hope when things look hopeless. The ending took me by surprise, so book 2 best not be far behind.

Sandra D. Bricker has done it again, with this 5 star book. She has a way of writing entertaining stories and interweaving faith throughout. She is one of my favorite authors. I highly recommend this book and any other she has written. If I learned anything from this book it is, possessions are just that things. What really matters is friendships and faith.

I want to give a high-five to the author Sandra D. Bricker and publisher Abingdon Press for bringing compelling Christian books that are entertaining and give hope to the reader with stories of faith.

At Home in Last Chance, book 2 in the A Place to Call Home, series by Cathleen Armstrong

Revell

Christian Contemporary Fiction

ISBN 9780800722487

Book Description: Kaitlyn Reed and Steven Braden have always had a similar philosophy of life: when the going gets tough, they get going--out of town and away from the problem. Now they are both back in Last Chance, New Mexico, and trying to start over. Kaitlyn is working to reestablish a relationship with the seven-year-old daughter she left behind six months earlier. Steven is trying to prove to his family that he is not the irresponsible charmer they have always known him to be. As Kaitlyn and Steven find themselves drawn to one another, one big question keeps getting in the way: How will they learn to trust each other when they don't even trust themselves?
With emotional depth and characters who leap off the page and into the reader's psyche, Cathleen Armstrong continues to delight her readers and win new fans. Readers will be thrilled to return once more to the small town they've grown to love.

My review: Kaitlyn Reed and Steve Braden are both the black sheep of the family. When things get tough they tend to tuck tail and run the other way. Kaitlyn is trying to make amends with her daughter she abandoned and her brother who was left with all the responsibility. She working a job she hates in order to stay close and be with her daughter. And become the mother she deserves. Steve left his brother holding the bag years ago and is still trying to make amends to his family. They have been warned by all around to stay away from each other but seem to be drawn to each other. All activity centers around family as mom and grandmother Elizabeth brings the family together. She was one of my favorite minor characters, reminding me of my own grandmother, spunky, faith filled and a true delight to all those around her.

This was the sweetest little book, reminded me of the true meaning of family. If truth be told I found it to be refreshing. The characters are well developed and realistic. In fact they remind me of the small town I live in. The author Cathleen Armstrong did an outstanding job. At Home in Last Chance is book 2 in the A Place to Call Home series. It can be read as a stand alone or as part of a series. I have not read book 1, Welcome to Last Chance, but I do plan to read it in the near future and look forward to reading book 3.

I want to give a high-five to the author and publisher for bringing compelling Christian books that are entertaining and give hope to the reader with stories of faith. I was provided with this book in exchange for my honest review and I am so grateful for author Cathleen Armstrong and publisher Revell for their generosity.
