Can she survive a blizzard…

and being framed?

Single mom Everly Raven didn’t just discover the murder of her friend—she’s being framed for it. Now she’s on the run from hired killers at her family’s ski resort, all while a deadly blizzard rages. Her only hope is her ex-husband, FBI agent Isaac Rhodes—the secret father of her child. But can they live long enough for him to meet their daughter—and clear Everly’s name?

My Thoughts

This was my first time reading Johnson. I liked her writing style, plot, and pacing. I enjoyed Everly’s and Issac’s second-chance story. I rooted for their marriage and safety.

I also want to add that I liked her antagonists. They were true to life. They knew what they wanted and went after it without apology or excuses.

Snowstorm Sabotage is a fast-paced cat-and-mouse ride that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the end. In fact, I may have jumped ahead several times. 😊

Happy reading!

The Sins of the Father?

A car wreck, recurring nightmares, questions without answers…
Could all of this point to a forgotten past?

Crime reporter, Jake Bradley, has stumbled onto a suspicious accident. The clues lead him to Lisa Oliver, the daughter of the victims. Something about her draws Jake Bradley, and he vows to help her at all costs. When the FBI warns him off the case, Jake is more determined than ever to find the truth and keep Lisa safe.

After the sudden death of her parents, Lisa Oliver yearns for a place to call home. When she meets Jake, she wants to trust him, but her father’s mantras of self-sufficiency and independence create a stumbling block. As the wall between them crumbles, the past encroaches, and Lisa fears she will never be free.

Is she forever doomed to her parents’ nomadic lifestyle, fleeing unseen enemies?

My Thoughts

Betty Thomason Owens is an established historical romance author with Write Integrity. This year, she offers her readers a suspense novel with a thread of sweet clean romance. The first in her portfolio. Still Water is Book 1 in a three-book series.

I could empathize with Lisa Oliver’s heartache of losing her parents and everything she thought was real in her life. Something no one wants to face.

And then there’s Jake Bradley. He’s a go-getter and a hero, wanting to protect those in trouble.

Both Lisa and Jake are relatable characters.

With a laid-back writing style, Owens invites her reader along to gather clues to solve the Oliver case and discover Lisa’s true identity. I enjoyed the plot, characters, writing style, and setting.

The setting? The 70s. A decade of long hair, bellbottoms, flouncy tops, wild colors, and political turmoil.

Mature readers will enjoy the trip back while young readers will enjoy visiting another place in time. Everyone will enjoy the story.

Fire by Linda Rodante

Fire by Linda Rodante is the third and last book in the Warfare Series.

In Fire, a friend from the past joins Reese and Katie in their fight for freedom and justice. Together, they face their hardest battle as they go head to head with gang leaders and unseen forces.

Patriot is a man hiding from the past. When a friend is threatened by a leader looking to reorganize his old gang, Patriot must come home to protect those he loves, including Chloe Swearingen.

As an ER nurse, Chloe doesn’t have the time or energy for a relationship. After saving a gang member from drowning, she is caught in the middle of a war and a relationship with a marked man.

This is the third and final chapter of this series, and it was well worth the wait. While being introduced to new characters, the reader becomes better acquainted with old friends from the previous stories. The emotional side of this story was relatable. Through the lives of her characters, the author showed love, compassion, and prayer can truly make a difference. I think it’s Rodante’s best!

Rating: 5 out of 5.

I recommend Fire to anyone who loves Christian Fiction, Suspense, and Romance!
