‘Impending Strike’ (Elite Guardians) by Lynette Eason and Sami A. Abrams

About The Book
He loves her, but he can’t have her…

Elite Guardian Charlie Lee knows that there is no future with the woman he loves—fellow Guardian Lizzie Tremaine. And he gets it. Lizzie’s a single mom focused on protecting her daughter, and Charlie’s got his own baggage anyway. It’s easier, and safer, to keep things the way they are.

Then, the unthinkable happens. While Charlie is undercover, he’s seriously injured…and his memory of the past four years is gone. But maybe it’s the fresh start he didn’t know he longed for.

And now he’s getting too close…

Lizzie cares for Charlie, but she’s lost all the men she’s ever loved and can’t risk her heart again. Still, she’s determined to protect Charlie, and help him discover who attacked him—and why.

But in the process, she begins to discover an unburdened, impossible-to-resist version of the man she knows. And—along with the details of his attack—Charlie seems to have forgotten their reasons for keeping things platonic. Suddenly, all of their self-imposed rules are gone, and Lizzie needs things to get back to normal, stat.

It’s her heart…or his life.

Problem is, the closer Charlie gets to uncovering his memories, the closer he gets to trouble. What will protecting Charlie cost Lizzie?

Another edge-of-your-seat Elite Guardian thriller!

My Rating: 5 Stars!
‘Lizzie, you need to start trusting God again. He is listening to your prayers, I promise. ‘

This book was simply amazing. For a suspense lover, it ticked all the boxes and then some. Lynette Eason and Sami Abrams have definitely excelled at giving me a most excellent read. We are taken back on a visit to Eason’s Elite Guardians and what a great group of folks it is. I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent with them so much.

Charlie Lee has been injured badly on an undercover assignment and loses the memory of his last four years. He has forgotten that he intends to keep Lizzie Tremaine at arm’s length. Both Charlie and Lizzie have issues that need to be worked out and just maybe this bit of amnesia can work in their favor. But first, they have to get past bad guys trying to kill them.

‘God, help me. Words refused to come. He had no idea what he needed, just that life seemed beyond his capabilities to death with at the moment.’

Take a wild, action-packed ride as Eason and Abrams take us spiraling into one of the most suspenseful stories ever! And even more impactful is the wonderful spiritual themes incorporated into the book. This one is for the keeper shelf, destined to be reread. Well done!

Review: ‘Her Darkest Secret’ by Jessica R. Patch

About The Book
When a cold-case serial killer returns, FBI special agent Fiona Kelly has one last chance to stop him before he claims the prize he’s always wanted—her.

The sight of a goose feather at a murder scene modeled after a children’s poem is enough to make FBI special agent Fiona Kelly’s blood turn to ice. Almost two decades ago, a feather was left with her sister’s body—and with every subsequent victim of the Nursery Rhyme Killer. Now he’s back. Only this time, his latest gruesome murder is a message to the only one who ever got away: Fiona.

Finding “Rhyme” is an obsession that’s fueled Fiona’s career—and destroyed her marriage to fellow FBI agent Asa Kodiak. Now Fiona and Asa have to put their past tensions aside and work together one last time. But Rhyme is watching and catching this killer may force Fiona to reveal her biggest, darkest secret…the one only he knows.

Her Darkest Secret by Jessica R. Patch grabbed me in the first scene of this edge-of-your-seat suspense and didn’t let go until the end!”—Patricia Bradley, author of the Memphis Cold Case novels (less)

5 Stars!

‘She’d been learning to think like a killer much longer than her career with the FBI.’

This book is so worthy of more than the allowable 5 stars. From the prologue, the book is absolutely
un-put-downable! I have been a Jessica Patch fan since I read her first book. I’ve read all of hers, some of them twice, and I’ve never tired of them one bit. With this one, however, Patch’s talent has only grown, and greatly. In fact, I was astounded at how great it was! I was captivated from page one, and it never wavered.

Patch has created characters that seem to just leap off the page and into the reader’s mind. And their emotions practically ping into your heart. One such scene was so intense, it had my heart hurting for them. Never have I seen such raw emotion from a book character. This writing is brilliant and crazy good!

‘The killer had declared war. Asa would give him the fight of his life and hope it was enough.’

Patch has created an insanely bad villain. The story is gritty, chilling and so frightening. I found myself gasping numerous times during the reading. Patch ratchets up the suspense all along and races toward an ending no one will envision. No one! I was completely taken by surprise by it. She manages to weave everything together perfectly to write the very best suspense novel I’ve ever read. Bar none.

I especially enjoyed how Patch has the FBI team operating so seamlessly. The secondary characters are also very real to this reader. This is WAY better than any crime show. Hands down.

‘God had proven once again that Fiona wasn’t worth listening to.’

Let me also mention that the spiritual thread, while subtle, was very powerful indeed. I loved how the author ties this in with the horrific things that happen in this book. One reviewer called it a taut psychological thriller and I completely agree. Taut and intense are two adjectives that describe it perfectly. I am so looking forward to more books in this series. Bravo! Well done!

‘I feel like I’m in a nightmare I can’t wake up from.’

Jessica R. Patch is a huge favorite of mine and I never miss her books. They are all on my shelves and some I’ve read more than once. She is a master at inspirational romantic suspense. She has a mind that thinks up great plots and characters and great bad guys. If you can call a bad guy great, that is.

Here she has created characters that just absolutely leap off the page. Agent Duke Jericho was one and he was super cool! I loved him from the minute he walked onto the page and into my heart. This story was so good, too. A cold case crime where the killer decides he needs to up his game and begins again and the clues are few and far between. But there is a new wrinkle in the case, one that is threatening the woman trying to solve the crime, police officer and artist Brigitte Linsey. Can they solve the crime before the killer takes his ultimate victim? Will Duke and Brigitte let God paint their story? (Pun intended) I loved this story so much. I always eagerly anticipate Patch’s next book. I highly recommend her work. Well done!

An I Read With Audra Book Tour and Giveaway: ‘The Songs That Could Have Been’ (Sedgewick County Chronicles) by Amanda Wen

About The Book
Two couples in love. Two sets of impossible circumstances. One powerful God of grace.
After a tailspin in her late teens, Lauren Anderson’s life is finally back on track. Her battle with bulimia is under control, her career is taking off, and she’s surrounded by a loving family. Then a chance meeting with Carter Douglas, her first love and the man who broke her heart, leads to old feelings returning with new strength. And suddenly her well-balanced world is thrown off kilter.
Now a TV meteorologist, Carter is determined to make amends with Lauren. After all, she still owns his heart. But the reasons they broke up aren’t lost–and those old demons are forcing him toward the same decision he faced in the past. He isn’t sure he’s courageous enough to make a different choice this time around.
When Lauren’s elderly grandmother, Rosie, begins having nightmares about a man named Ephraim–a name her family has never heard before–a fascinating and forbidden past love comes to light. As Lauren and Carter work to uncover the untold stories of Rosie’s past in 1950s Wichita, they embark on a journey of forgiveness and second chances that will change their lives–and Rosie’s–forever. Along the way they’ll learn that God wastes nothing, his timing is perfect, and nothing is beyond his grace and redemption.
The Songs That Could Have Been is full of the same deftly handled, resonant writing that readers and critics alike enjoyed in Amanda Wen’s first book in the series. Fans of Lisa Wingate and Rachel Hauck will add Amanda Wen to their must-read shelves.

About Amanda Wen
Amanda Wen is an award-winning writer of inspirational romance and split-time women’s fiction. She has placed first in multiple contests, including the 2017 Indiana Golden Opportunity Contest, the 2017 Phoenix Rattler Contest, and the 2016 ACFW First Impressions Contest, among others.

In addition to her writing, Amanda is an accomplished professional cellist and pianist, frequently performing with symphony orchestras, string quartets, and her church’s worship team, and accompanying high school and middle school choirs. A lifelong denizen of the flatlands, Amanda currently lives in Kansas with her patient, loving, and hilarious husband, their three adorable Wenlets, and a snuggly Siamese cat.

My Rating: 5 Stars!
‘Could it be God wasn’t finished writing their story?’

When I read Amanda Wen’s debut novel last year, it just moved me so much and I began to watch for her next offering. Now I’ve read it and I can tell you that it did not disappoint. She is a great storyteller! Wen tackles a very difficult subject here, well, three actually, and does them in the most wonderful and caring way that it melts the reader’s heart.

Full of such great characters, this book is going on my top reads list for the year. We see more than one story here in Wen’s dual time novel. Each is very moving in its own right and totally captures the reader’s mind completely. It did mine, at least. I could barely put it down.

Wen’s theme of God’s grace and redemption resonate throughout. His love for His creation is so evident here, and Wen’s telling of it moved me to tears more than once. She excels at this story and I’m so happy to be a fan. The blurb on the back cover says, in part, ‘God wastes nothing and his timing is perfect.’ How very true this is! These characters simply leapt off the pages and right into my heart, along with their hurts, joys, and love. I will not stop thinking about this one for a while. Perfection! Very well done!

‘Morning By Morning’ (Murphy Brothers, Book 8) by Jennifer Rodewald

About The Book
“You were built for hard things.”

Two years after losing the love of his life to cancer, Connor Murphy is slowly emerging from the darkness of grief, but he wrestles with fears about how he and his twelve-year-old son Reid will manage to navigate Reid’s teenage years on their own. Connor’s single-minded prayer has become, please, no more changes, but when single mom Jade Beck arrives to take on the job Sadie Murphy had done before her death, it becomes clear God has stamped his prayer request denied.

Jade Beck’s prayers were answered when she received the offer of a job as Lakeshore Lodge’s marketing and customer relations manager. Or so she thought. After a messy divorce, she and her two children need a safe place to land and find the peace their lives have lacked, but once she meets her abrupt, brooding supervisor, Mr. Connor Murphy, her fresh start suddenly looks a bit…stale. She’s already endured fifteen years living with a condescending man, and she won’t be a doormat anymore.

As the challenges of single parenting continually push them together, Jade and Connor’s relationship gradually transforms from cold and awkward to respectful and mutually supportive…and eventually to something deeper and more tender. But navigating these changes forces them to deal with the hurts and disappointments of their pasts and confront the fears that hold them captive.

Surrendering their hopes and fears to God has never felt so daunting. Can they learn to see the goodness of God, even in their broken paths, and trust that morning by morning, God’s tender mercies are ever new?

Morning by Morning, book 8 in the Murphy Brothers Stories, is a complex, emotional story of hope after heartache, of deeply moving, tender romance after devastating loss, and God’s faithful love, even in life’s hardest place.

About Jennifer Rodewald

Jennifer Rodewald/J. Rodes lives on the wide plains somewhere near the middle of Nowhere. A coffee addict, chaser of teenage activities, and storyteller, she also wears the hats of mom, teacher, and friend. Mostly, she loves Jesus and wants to see others fall in love with Him too.

My Rating: 5 Stars!
‘How much more, exactly, did God think he could take?’

This is a stunning series. I have loved each book as it released, and eagerly awaited the next in the series. I was not disappointed ever in any of them. These Murphy brothers are an amazing bunch, raised by godly parents and taught honesty, integrity, and a powerful godliness. Jennifer Rodewald excels here, in each one.

Connor Murphy gets a second story here. We first met him in a previous book when he felt led by God to marry a woman with cancer and a little boy. What started out as a marriage of convenience quickly turned into a deep and abiding love. When his beloved wife dies, Connor is devastated and can’t seem to escape the pain, even two years later. But it seems God has another plan in mind for him. Jade Beck arrives to work at the same lodge Connor does with her two children in tow. Jade carries enough hurt in her heart for more than one person.

‘God, is it ever going to get better?’

Connor is an admirable, Jesus-filled man who always thinks long and hard and prays about every move he makes. He is not ready for what looks like a new direction God has sent his way, but he is willing to be obedient. Both Connor and Jade have been in hard places and known deep, heart-rending pain. Neither can see that God can do anything that will take away the pain of their hearts. But we serve a God that can make all things new, can make a road way in the wilderness and streams in the desert.

Jennifer Rodewald has a unique ability to plumb the absolute depths of human emotion in her characters. So many times I have been moved to tears reading her stories. This one ministered to a situation that I was going through in my own life while I was reading the book. Isn’t that just like God? I truly could feel these characters’ pain.

Come along on this journey as we discover God always had something for His children even when they think the pain is all consuming and the light will never shine again. Bravo! Oh! There is one more in the series.

My thanks to the publisher for a copy of this book. I was not expected to leave a positive review and the opinion here is entirely my own.

‘Veil of Winter’ (A Dericott Tale) by Melanie Dickerson

About The Book
She’s hounded from every side by treacherous elements and foes, but her greatest enemy lies within.
In the mountains near France, the medieval Princess Elyce is being forced to marry, thus forming an alliance that will enrich her father but enslave her kingdom. Instead, she chooses to feign her death and flee to Prague to beg King Wenceslaus to help save her people.
In England, the young knight Sir Gerard has a vision from God instructing him to help Elyce on her quest. When he arrives to find she has been near death for days, he manages to revive her. However, thinking the stranger was trying to kiss her, the princess immediately distrusts him. But her desperate situation forces her to accept his aid.
Pursued by her enemy’s guards over mountainous terrain, they must also battle the deadly winter elements. Her greatest challenge may be to overcome the voices of disapproval and accusation from her childhood. Will her emotions lead her into her true identity, or will they undermine her ability to work with Gerard and to save her people, who desperately need her help?
In this dazzling and romantic story, New York Times bestselling author Melanie Dickerson takes the classic Sleeping Beauty fairy tale to satisfying new heights.

Review: ‘Never Romance A Rogue’ by Regina Scott

About The Book
He was supposed to marry her best friend, but he couldn’t say no to her.
No one has ever refused a request from Lady Belle Dryden. Her pretty face and winsome nature almost guarantee it, and the fact that she’s the youngest daughter of the Duke of Wey doesn’t hurt. So she’s certain when she plays matchmaker between her dearest friend, Miss Petunia Bateman, and the charming, mysterious Owen Canady, both will be only too happy to fall in love. After all, Belle feels herself falling for Owen already. A shame a duke’s daughter must marry someone more impressive.

Owen Canady is a gentleman by birth, a pauper by circumstance, and a con man by necessity. Life has taught him he can rely only on his wits and a fast horse to get by. But when he is blackmailed into ferreting out the secrets of the Duke of Wey at a house party at the duke’s lavish estate, he finds his resolve crumbling. Belle is everything that is right and good in the world. He cannot betray her.

As her father’s enemies grow more daring, Belle and Owen must work together to protect all they hold dear. When his own secrets are revealed, can Owen convince the lady who’s never heard no to say yes to him?

If you like warm, witty historical romances, with a touch of intrigue, then you’ll love this historical romance by an award-winning author.

She is also the author of more than three dozen sweet historical romances set in Regency England in such series as Grace-by-the-Sea, Fortune’s Brides, Uncommon Courtships, and the Lady Emily Capers. She has twice been awarded best book of the year for her type of story from industry favorite RT Book Reviews. A Distance Too Grand in the American Wonders Collection was named one of the top 10 romances of the year by Booklist.
Regina Scott has learned to fence, driven four-in-hand, sailed on a tall ship, and dressed as a Regency dandy, all in the name of research, of course. She makes her home in the Puget Sound area of Washington State with her beloved husband.

My Rating: 4 Stars!
I do love a good Regency story and Regina Scott does one so very good. This one is my favorite of the series. The Duke of Wey’s daughter meets her match here. She is on the search for a suitor for her friend Petunia, but falls for him herself. But this particular suitor is not at all what he seems. Great characters here, friends from previous books make great appearances. I loved it!

My thanks to the publisher for a copy of the book. The review is my own opinion.
