“Remember the Promise… Save my children…”
All Thomas Kent wants to do is die… but a mysterious e-mail and a voice from the past stir him to fight for his life and the lives of a family he doesn’t know. The leader of a powerful and dangerous cult threatens the country’s future and Thomas holds the only evidence for its destruction. As the cult’s plan enters its final phase, Thomas must cast his fear aside and act before it’s too late.
This story gives us an unwilling hero, a damsel in distressed, an evil villain all in an action packed story that will keep you engrossed from start to finish. There will be a couple of parts that you will probably see coming, but they are so enjoyable when they happen.
Not only is this a good story that will touch many emotions, but there are deep spiritual truths regarding forgiveness, especially the importance of forgiving one’s self. Mr. Pence also tackles the very difficult subject of why bad things happen to God’s people. I appreciated the job he did this delicate topic and his words provide comfort.
I look forward to the opportunity to read more from this author. To learn more about the very talented James Pence visit his website at: http://www.jamespence.com/

I FINALLY won a copy of this book after many tries. I’m so glad I did!
In this book we meet Naomi Grant who has recently taken over managing her family’s exclusive spa. Unfortunately, Naomi finds herself face to face with a very angry Devon Knightley who is in search of his ex-wife, who just happens to be dead in Naomi’s massage room. And this isn’t the last dead body we will find!!
This was a very enjoyable story. I love mysteries, and murder mysteries are just a bonus! This was a well written story with great characters. Camy also does a great job masking who the real killer is until the very end.
This story offers more than a good mystery, but it is also a good reminder of who those who have grown up in church need to come to terms with what their faith looks like. There’s also the message of learning to trust after being hurt.
Camy does a great job of telling a page turning story, with strong characters but she gives us the addition dimension of timeless spiritual truths and what I like to refer to as a “line of redemption.”
If you enjoy Ginny Aiken mysteries you’ll enjoy this book by Camy Tang.

I won this book from one of the great blogs I follow http://wordvessel.blogspot.com/
I was very excited because I’ve worked with Joseph Bentz for many years at Azusa Pacific University.
This was a very enjoyable story. I enjoyed the way Joe told the story, first person from the point of view of the main characters. It was a great reminder of how we often interpret actions and words very differently than they way they were intended.
This story takes you through a family’s struggles to deal with loss, illness, and misplaced loyalty. Chris LaRue returns home to face his father’s illness, but he must confront the pain from the past. He also has to learn to truly forgive the past.
A Son Comes Home is a well written story, with some surprises as well as a few predictable endings. There were a few places when the story went a little more detailed about an event than I really felt necessary. Yet, Joe paints the event and you can see yourself sitting in the midst of your own family with their quirks and quarrels.
I would recommend this story for anyone who enjoys a heartwarming family story that includes subtle reminders about forgiveness and the importance of family support and love.
