Day of Reckoning - Valerie Massey Goree

International Retrieval Organization Agent Lela Ortiz is assigned the kidnapping case of businessman, Chuck Davenport. When her boss allows Chuck’s brother-in-law to assist, Lela accepts the help with reservations, especially when Jay Vashon, prays to God at the most inopportune times. Jay would do anything to help bring his brother-in-law home, even work with hesitant Agent Ortiz. As Jay helps Lela decipher the clues sent to Chuck's special-needs son, Jay begins to fall for the feisty IRO agent.

Can Jay break through the barrier Lela has constructed around her heart? Will Lela be able to overcome her distrust of men and God?
And what of Chuck? Can the pair locate him before the ransom deadline?
Excerpt from Day of Reckoning:

Two hours crouched behind a reeking dumpster on a dead-end San Diego street must be the worst possible way to spend a balmy Saturday night. Private Investigator, Agent Lela Ortiz stretched, and massaged her taut neck muscles. Heavy-metal music pumped out of the op…

A winter storm, fallen trees, a corrupt mayor all conspire to make this the …

The Grace Kitchen books are starting to go live with my Andante, Andante.



To Love and To Cherish, book 2 by Marianne Evans releases in two weeks.
One Harvest Knight, book 3 by Delia Latham follows on September 14th.


Pastor Connor Butler is more used to shepherding his spiritual flock than saving injured cats. Yet when he finds one trapped behind a false wall in the New Life Centre storefront church, he takes the frightened feline to the local vet.
A woman of mystery and keeper of secrets, Vet Teagan Rhodes is new in town. She stays to herself and quietly goes about doing what she loves to do—healing the injured animals of Harvest, Tennessee.
Intrigued by the lovely pet healer, Connor invites her to help organize a dodgeball game fundraiser for Grace Kitchen. Then trouble comes calling in Harvest, and Teagan appears to be somehow embroiled in the ruckus. Connor wants to help, but things are not at all what they appear to be.
Dare this man of God risk his heart and his reputation on a w…

Fatefall Fall by Erin Unger

Blurb: Private Investigator Ava Worthington and her partners head to the mountains to solve the death of a farmer owner’s son who was discovered murdered in an outhouse on the property. Without local cowboy Cory’s protection, Ava won’t get the chance to follow leads as the killer tries to stop her investigation. But Ava’s falling for Cory against her better judgment. She should be working and not pining after a cowboy. And Cory doesn’t want a relationship. His successful career was destroyed by a woman he trusted, and he won’t make the same mistake twice.
One suspect after another is cleared from Ava’s list until she’s sure she has the real killer targeted in her sights, but he’s hunting her, too. How will Ava and Cory find the killer and admit their love before they are buried under a mountain of secrets?
Fateful Fall is my fourth book and I’m beyond excited to share it with readers. It is the perfect example of God’s timing. You see, this book was born once before. My first book to co…

The Curious Prayer Life of Muriel Smith - Carol Raj

One unlocked car door, one glance to the left, and suddenly impoverished retiree Muriel Smith is hurtling down the road at an alarming thirty miles per hour!

Will the teenage carjacker really shoot to kill? Muriel can't die yet. Not until she's accomplished something to make her daughter proud. Not until she's seen her great-grandchild, the unborn baby her granddaughter isn't sure she wants to keep.

It seems Muriel is running out of time. Especially if her survival depends on her driving skills!

Muriel and her carjacker find themselves on a wild adventure that has them both falling "victim" to Muriel's curious prayer life.

I LOVED this book. Yes that's loved all in capital letters. This is an amazing story. All Muriel asked God for was someone to mow her lawn. She didn’t quite get the answer she was expecting. At least not the way she wanted it. So nice to see a story where the heroine is much older, with real aches and pains and needs.…

I really enjoyed this book. One of those stories that keeps you reading far later than you ought because you really need to know what happens next. Then wakes you early wondering how they are doing. With plenty of twists that I didn't see coming, this book is not to be missed.


What Do Authors Do All Day? by Tiffany Amber Stockton

What Do Authors Do All Day?
It always makes me smile when I speak at an event or do any kind of author appearance, and someone approaches to ask me what it’s like being an author. Many people have this grandiose idea in their mind. Somehow, the writer gets sensationalized or elevated to this mysterious pedestal, staring into empty space while the rest of the world fades away.
The reality?
Despite all my best-laid plans, a typical day doesn’t contain much writing at all! Surprised to learn that? Most non-writers usually are. For the majority of authors (not the 1% who actually make a full-time living on their writing like Dean Koontz or Nora Roberts), it’s not like the “9-5” job where you leave your home, go to work, focus on that work, then return home. When you’re a writer, your job and your work intertwine with your real life. If you’re also a parent with children at home, your family is thrown into the mix as well.
For me, this means waking up at 5:45 or 6am every morning so I can snat…

Delia Latham - Facing Goliath

t's Christmas in July. Over the next week or so, I'll be sharing Christmas books. Here's one for today.
Amazon UKAmazon US




Facing Goliath Delia Latham
We’ve all heard the Bible story about David, a young boy who faced off against a real, flesh-and-blood giant—and won! Goliath was a giant so frightening that not one man in the Israelite army came forward to answer his taunting challenge. But David did. He stepped out in faith, God went with him (as He always will), and together they sent that monster to the ground. We face giants too, although not usually the flesh-and-blood variety. Ours are situations in our lives that just seem too hard. Too big. Too impossible. Too painful. Too much. But the same God who went with David onto that battlefield still stands close by today, waiting to help us face the beasts that put fear into our hearts and steal our joy. Giants come in different forms: fear, sorrow, hurt, unforgiveness, sickness, worry…and the list goes on. But no giant is big …

Dove Strong by Erin Lorence

Dove Strong Blurb Dove Strong loves God. She loves standing chin up, fists clenched when facing Satan’s attacks. But there’s one thing she doesn’t love—other people. So when this spiritually-gifted, antisocial teenager is chosen to join other believers in a trek across Satan’s territory, rattlesnakes and evil-intentioned Heathen aren’t her biggest challenges. But failure isn’t an option. In a month, the Christian Councils will decide the Reclaim, a vote on whether there’ll be a war between Christ’s and Satan’s followers to take back America. It is up to Dove, God’s messenger for peace, to reach her Council in time. Because if she doesn’t, things could get bloody.
Dove Strong Extract: I smashed against the boulder’s baking contour. Sun-blinded, my eyes darted back and forth uselessly as I attempted to see any hunters. At Melody’s nudge, I shifted to the boulder’s edge and dangled my feet off while she inched the heavy-sounding shard back into its place to conceal her family’s secret exi…
