And the first line is…

Are you Doctor Geoffrey Whelan?”

ABOUT THE BOOK

Doctor Geoffrey Whelan was in Japan when the tsunami hit, killing his cousin and grandmother. He has worked in medical missions for years to assuage his survivor’s guilt, and now that he’s back in Sonoma to help his family, he can’t figure out why he still feels so wounded and God feels so far away.

Then a mysterious young woman warns him that he and nurse Maylin Kinley are in mortal danger.

Maylin notices that Geoffrey is not the same arrogant doctor she met years ago in Los Angeles. Now that they are working together again in a clinic in Sonoma, she fights her attraction towards him because his confident, forceful personality reminds her too much of her abusive ex-boyfriend, who called himself a Christian.

She has been steering clear of her handsome coworker—until Asian hitmen attack the clinic and they are forced to run for their lives. Now they must race to figure out how the threat is connected to a young teenager whose life they saved—before everyone they love is caught in the crossfire.

MY THOUGHTS

After reading Found, I found myself asking “how does she do it?” 

The characters were so real, in an instant they drew me into the story. I wanted to know what they did, how they did it…

The story line is one you don’t read about everyday but one which is real and affecting lives. And the finesse with which the author handled it is unrivalled.

I received a copy of this book and this is my honest opinion.

Book Review: Fate.

Hello Friends.

Lovely Wednesday! Today I will be sharing my thoughts with you about a book I recently read and loved.

Fate (The Perfect Time For Love) by Natasha Frazier.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Melanie Bennett and Detective Brian Morris met over a year ago when he solved her best friend’s murder case, and now Nashville’s annual Christmas festivities have them crossing paths again, could it be fate?

Melanie Bennett has spent the last six months in therapy to erase the self-assigned blame and eradicate the night terrors that plagued her at every attempt to close her eyes after witnessing her best friend’s murder. The Christmas season always had a way of lifting her spirits, and this year is no different. The spark within her to live again couldn’t have come at a better time when she and Detective Brian Morris are reacquainted, but first, she must believe that she deserves happiness.

Will the circumstances of how they met prevent Melanie from taking a chance on love?

Brian was drawn to Melanie when he first laid eyes on her over a year ago; he wanted to ask her out, but the timing was all wrong. Expressing interest in her when she’d just lost her best friend was tacky, but fate dealt him another opportunity when he walked into her hair salon delivering flyers for the annual stuff the cruiser toy drive a year later. Though Brian desires love, will his unresolved issues with his mother get in the way?

Every moment spent with one another can only be described as fate – a power beyond human control. Will this Christmas season bring about the healing and love both Melanie and Brian crave?

Fate is book 2 in the Perfect Time for Love Series (Sweet Christian Romance).

MY THOUGHTS

Melanie’s and Brian’s story is very sweet, relaxing read.

I loved the flow of the story. The characters were wonderful. I love how the author wove the little twists and turns into the story with such beauty and love. Their individual faith journeys was very inspiring.

Very relaxing and sweet read filled with hope.

I received a copy of this book and this is my honest opinion.

Daniel stared at the chaos that was his kitchen.

About The Book.

There’s only one person standing in the way of love: her husband. As Efe files for divorce, will the breakup give her joy or lead to her losing more than she expected?
It’s been almost two years since the night that changed everything for Efe. For as long as she could remember, her childhood crush on Daniel had always made her do silly things. But there was only one thing she regretted; having a baby for him when he clearly didn’t love her.
With constant push and pressures from both their families, they end up in a marriage only one of them wants. She goes away for the mandatory one year National service and meets Amaze who is everything Daniel isn’t to her, and he sweeps her off her feet showing her sweet romance. Armed with the pain of Daniel’s adulterous ways, she makes the firm decision to move on and files for a divorce.
While Efe is away, Daniel has a change of heart from the most unlikely means and decides to get his act together and be the husband he hasn’t been. He gets his acts straight and wants to get his wife back but he may be late as she’s already met with Amanze’s family.
Will Efe be willing to take Daniel back, or will her new love with Amanze be strong enough to make her walk away from him? Can she hope for a new start with her daughter and Amanze or is everything just wishful thinking?

About The Book.

FROM FAKE RELATIONSHIP TO TRUE LOVE

A broken engagement drives Susanna Kelly back to her hometown of Sweetheart, Texas and the arms of its quirky, lovable citizens. But her peaceful return to her roots is shattered when heart-shaped notes with sinister messages start appearing. The support of Daniel Sheppard, Asian American bestselling author and her childhood friend, gives her a much needed ally amidst the turmoil.

Daniel offers to play the role of her boyfriend to discourage the stalker, but Susanna resists. Pretending to be a couple? And with Daniel of all people? Who would buy it?

The note writer’s mind games force her to reconsider. Susanna accepts Daniel’s crazy plan, but her heart acts up whenever she’s near her decoy valentine. Comfortable, uncomplicated Daniel has turned into a full-grown man who makes her senses spin. As she tries to sort out her feelings, the make-believe romance has the opposite effect intended. Harmless notes turn into life-threatening accidents, and Daniel and Susanna must find out who’s behind the chaos before they can decide if their temporary relationship is a heaven-sent gift meant to last forever.
