Desert Justice

 My thoughts: this author is one of my favorite with Love inspired suspense. She writes with

 lots of action and her stories are very well written. This is the third book in the desert series

 but it can stand alone. This is not only a great great romantic suspense, it also is a book about 

people who have to face their past and rise above it. The characters are very well developed 

and almost seem real and almost seem real. If you like romantic suspense, you will love t

his book and   any other by this I was giving a copy free and all opinions are my own

More from Dana

I remember standing on the edge of the lookout and gazing into the wonder that is Artist’s Palette in Death Valley. Artist’s Drive, which takes you to this breathtaking view, rises above Badwater Basin (the lowest spot in North America) and then meanders along twisting canyons and hills until it brings you to this popular tourist stop. The premier view is a place called Artist’s palette. It’s a sprawling pocket of color, hues of rose, ochre, green and gold tucked in the rippling landscape and teased to life by the desert sun. Isn’t that just like God? To lead us to surprises and wonders that await us in a sometimes hostile world? Every day we spent in Death Valley held a surprise, from the rocks that move mysteriously across the sands to the towering twists and turns of 20 Mule Team Canyon. There are only two things to do with a wonderous place like that…enjoy the divine bounty, and write a novel set there so others can come along!

I hope you will enjoy this third installment in the Desert Justice series. The first is Beckett’s story and then we had quiet cowboy Levi’s adventure. Now it’s brash pilot Austin’s turn. Will he get his happy ending after being dumped at the altar and wrecking his shoulder in an accident? Turn those pages and come with me to Death Valley to find out!

God's Voice by B J BASSETT

 


  August 27

God’s Voice

Then the Lord spoke to you out of the fire. You heard the sound of words but saw no form; there was only a voice. Deuteronomy 4:12 NIV

Our vacation was over. We were about to leave the motel room when my husband, Ed, realized his wallet was missing. We both froze. Then we began to search everywhere. We unpacked and repacked our luggage. And we prayed. I looked under pillows, shook bedding—searching, searching. My husband went to the restaurant where we’d had dinner the night before. His billfold wasn’t there.

It was time to leave without his wallet. That’s when a still, small voice said, “Look under the bed.” I looked at Ed. He was on his knees, his upper body lying across the bed. “I found it. It was under the bed,” he said with a sigh of relief, his voice full of gratitude. We headed home, rejoicing.

Are we in the habit of listening for God’s voice? He wants to communicate with us, not only during times of crisis but always.

Father, open my ears and heart to hear Your voice every day. May I do less talking and more listening. Amen.

Silent Night: A Lantern Beach Christmas Novella

 


Silent Night: A Lantern Beach Christmas Novella 


November 30, 2021

by Christy Barritt  (Author)



Catch up with your favorite Lantern Beach characters as they come together to help the town's beloved police chief.

On the night before Christmas Eve, as she begins her maternity leave, Lantern Beach Police Chief Cassidy Chambers disappears. Suspecting foul play, law enforcement officers combine forces with the Blackout Security team and island residents to find her.

Despite a snowstorm in his path, Cassidy’s husband, Ty, desperately tries to return home in time to save her. With his wife’s and baby’s lives on the line, he needs a Christmas miracle.

Will the tightknit community of Lantern Beach be able to rescue their beloved police chief in time? Or will Cassidy’s cries for help be met only with silence?


My thoughts: silent night is a Christmas novella written in multiple point of views as Cassidy police chief is fixing to give birth to her first child. Someone kidnaps her and threatening steal her baby and the blackout team and  Cassidy's friends or desperately searching for her before it's too late. Written in Christy barracks fast-paced style this will grab your interest and hold it until the end as you root for people to find Cassidy before it's too late. It is a Christmas story but you can read it at any time of the year I was given a copy for a and all opinions on my own.
