Full Disclosure

Sheeeeee's back!!!!!!!!!!!!!.  After five long years of missing Dee Henderson's writings and hoping she will write again, she has.  I was one of the lucky ones to get a ARC of Full Disclosure to read and review.
It was well worth the wait for her to write another book-thoroughly enjoyed it.  It was her typical suspense and romance book with both characters in the police field.  Ann Silver who is a Midwest homicide investigator that brings a lead on a serial murder case to Special Agent Paul Falcon and the evidence is just what he needed to restart the cold case. But can the two of them work together without getting romantically involved?  Ann has lots of secrets and a lifetime of hiding them and will Paul be willing to find them out. Must read to find out the answer to that question.
What struck me the most throughout the book was the references to the characters in her previous books. That way you could read this book without having read the O'Malley series.  But this book will make you want to read the previous books.
Full Disclosure goes on sale October 2nd-make sure you get your copy to read, you will not be disappointed.
Thanks to Bethany House for this ARC copy for free just for my review.

Abducted is the second of the Pacific Coast Justice Series by Jancie Cantore and she has another winner in this book. I loved her first book and was blessed to get this one to read also.
If you did not read the first book-still pick this up.  She retells snippets of the characters in the first book so you will be up to speed throughout this book. 
Loved the continuation of Carly's and Nick's story and God's mercy and grace in that situation-need to read the story to see what I mean. Carly is a patrol officer in Las Playas with her partner Joe fighting crime.  Joe's wife is taken to the hospital with a mysterious illness along with his four month old baby.  The baby is taken from the hospital and Carly hunts for the abductor. She follows leads, gets close, then people are killed. The storyline takes you from one culprit to another and you think they will never find the baby or who stole him.  There is also wonderful gospel messages throughout the book and how Carly tries to witness to her roommate.  Love that part in any Christian book.
Since Janice Cantore is a former cop-her stories are alive with superb character development and the story lines are ones she dealt with one the street. Can't wait for number three to read more about Nick and Carly.
Thank you Tyndale for this free copy just for my honest opinion.

House of Mercy

House of Mercy is Erin Healy's latest book and it is very unique!.  I have read all of her books and each one is so different.  She is truly a gifted storyteller and this book fits into that category.
The story centers around Beth who has a gift of healing and she wants to be a vet.  She lives on a cattle ranch with her family and they have a haven for men needing a second chance.  All is going well until:
she decides to steal a saddle, ride a thoroughbred (not hers) and the horse is injured. Life starts to spiral downward when the owner of the horse wants to sue her, her father dies, college hopes are shattered,possible farm loss and a grandfather she does not know.  She finds out that he is wealthy and sets out on horseback to find him.  She is guided by a wolf-is he real or not?
This is just a snippet of the storyline. How will Beth find mercy and will she ever find peace?
This one line in the story just stuck out and I pondered for quite a while on it.
"You did what you had the opportunity to do. And the One who orders the world worked through you.  We do what we can with the resources God gives us, Bethesda.  We should try to do no more than that"
If you have not read any of Erin Healy's book-please do-she has a way of telling stories that stay with you long after the last page has been turned.
Thank you Thomas Nelson for this free book just for my honest opinion.
