Four books down and 48 more to go!! Here are the next four in my reading challenge:
|Lonestar Sanctuary, Lonestar Series #1
By Colleen Coble / Thomas Nelson
Fleeing a vengeful stalker and desperate to help her daughter, Betsy, speak again, Allie Siders finds a safe place for them at the Bluebird Ranch, a home for troubled children—and abused horses. Owner Elijah DeAngelo welcomes them, but foreman Rick Bailey is guarded. Can Allie and Rick put aside the past to save all they hold dear? 320 pages, softcover from Nelson.
|Face of Betrayal, Triple Threat Series #1
By Lis Wiehl & April Henry / Thomas Nelson
While home on Christmas break, a seventeen-year-old Senate page takes her dog out for a walk and never returns. Reporter Cassidy Shaw is the first to break the story. The resulting media firestorm quickly ensnares Federal Prosecutor Allison Pierce and FBI Special Agent Nicole Hedges. The three unique women are life-long friends who call themselves The Triple Threat – a nickname derived from their favorite dessert and their uncanny ability to crack cases via their three positions of power. Though authorities think Katie might have been kidnapped or run away, those theories shatter when Nicole uncovers Katie’s blog. They reveal a girl troubled by a mysterious relationship with an older man. Possibly a U.S. Senator. As the three women race against time to find Katie alive, their increasing emotional involvement brings out their own inner demons and external enemies. There are many faces of betrayal, but they must find one face in a crowd of growing suspects before they become the next victims. In Face of Betrayal, Lis Wiehl’s expertise in law, politics, and criminal investigation merges with April Henry’s narrative genius to create a gripping mystery filled with rich characters, real danger, and a shocking yet satisfying final twist.
Should be a good month of reading!
