Never Let You Go By Erin Healy

Never Let You Go by Erin Healy is the first book she wrote on her own. She had co written 2 other books. I received this book from www.booksneeze.com to read and review. This review is of my own opinion.  Seven years ago Lexi Solomon's life fell apart. Her sister was killed at a shopping mall, her drug dealer husband left her, her father had a breakdown and her mother left to travel. This left Lexi and her daughter Molly. Molly was her motivation for everything she did. After work one night, Warden Pavo, showed up to inform her that the man who killer her sister was up for parole and she was going to have to testify on his behalf or her daughter would pay for it. She soon finds out that her ex husband is back in town. This book was slow to start but once it picked up I couldn't put it down. Lexi was a newer Christian, still learning about forgiveness and love. This story had evil forces working against Lexi, which because of her hatred for her husband and the man who killed her sister, evil found a foothold. Lexi had to figure out about forgiveness and how grace works for everyone. I highly recommend this book. I can't wait to see what else Erin Healy has in store for us!! This book truly shows good and evil and how good can triumph over evil

Seasons of Grace Series

I recently finished the series by Beverly Lewis called Seasons of Grace. It is a story of an Amish woman who one morning leaves her family in search of a child she gave up for adoption many years ago. No one but her and her parents know about this child. Lettie Byler is married and has 4 other children. Her family is turned upside down by her leaving and not knowing what was happening. In the mean time an Englisher has come to Lancaster county in search of Natural treatments for Cancer.  There are 3 books in this series and where one ends the next one picks up. The series is wonderful and well written.....I couldn't put the books down......the books are well researched as far as Amish ways and religion. Beverly Lewis truly portrays the Amish life and also shows how everyone is human and fall short.

The Hand of Fate- A Triple Threat Novel

I received the book, Hand of Fate; a Triple Threat Novel, free from booksneeze.com to review. This is my opinions of this book. This is the 2nd book by Lis Wiehl with April Henry. Hand of Fate is an awesome book. I couldn't put it down. We again see our 3 friends: Allison, a DA, Nicole, FBI Agent, and Cassidy, a TV reporter.  We meet Jim Fate in this book. He has a radio show called "hand of fate". He is a friend of Cassidy's and had contacted Allison and Nicole about threats he was receiving on his life. He receives a package and opens it. When it is opened a "gas" of some kind is released. This starts a whole chain of events....chaos......unsure of what was released it begins investigations. So begins a case to figure out who wanted Jim Fate dead and the list is HUGE. Could be his co host, his Nuts of the Day, or even a Politician. Intertwined in these events we see our 3 friends going through their own personal crisis. A miscarriage, a drug addiction, and also admission of rape that happened 10 yrs ago. We see the friends relying on their faith to get through these trials.  Just as Face of Betrayal, this book kept you on the edge of your seat and in the end the suspect is NOT who you would think it was. I am so glad to have been given the opportunity to read this book and now have another favorite author! Can't wait for another Triple Threat book to come out!! Lis Weihl is a very talented writer and knows how to keep her readers wanting more.
