Unspoken: A Review

Dee Henderson has long been one of my favorite christian suspense authors.  She didn't write anything for several years.  This book is her second since returning to the world of fiction.  Her first book since the break was called Full Disclosure.  I did not like this book.  I just didn't enjoy the characters & plot twists she took.  I was a little hesitant to try another Dee Henderson book, but I'm glad I did.  This book is classic Dee Henderson at its best.  If you have read either of her 2 series you will enjoy her return to great plots & deep characters.

Charlotte Graham was at the center of one of Chicago's most notorious child kidnapping cases.  Over the years she has been trying to rebuild her life.  She struggles with a question alot of people ask which is "why does God let bad things happen to good people?".

Bryce Bishop is a coin dealer who is happy with his life but a little bored.  A mysterious coin supplier enters the picture & his life will never be the same.

Ms. Henderson introduces us to the world of coin collecting,  staggering inheritances & kidnapping in a story that is very well developed.  If you want a great read for a cold winter day pick up this book!  You can find a copy of it here at

I was given this book by the publisher in exchange for a honest review.  All thoughts are my own.

Great Fall Reads

I have read two books recently that were really well written. 

The first book is Stranded by Dani Pettrey.  This author is a new favorite.  Her writing style reminds me alot of Dee Henderson.  This book is a romantic suspense.  This story is set on a cruise ship in Alaska.  This book starts with a frantic chase & person overboard.  The character of Darcy St. James was introduced in a previous book but we finally get to her story.  This talented reporter goes undercover to help a friend and gets in deeper than she can handle.

Gage McKenna is leading guided kayak tours for the cruise line.  He has a past that makes trust hard to earn & easy to lose.  When he reunites with Darcy on the boat sparks fly & faith is tested in many ways.  I have loved being a part of the McKenna family in all three books of this series.

Ms. Pettrey' s latest book is by far her best work yet.  I can't wait to see where she takes us next...

 The second book is A bride for Keeps by Melissa Jagears.  Ever have a book where just reading the summary reels you in?  This book was that way for me.  Everett Cline is a hardworking bachelor trying to make a struggling farm prosper in Kansas.  He has been jilted so many times that the other bachelors in town all line up to see the latest mail-order bride step off the train for Everrett.  Rejection will make anyone gun-shy but three times?  That is just plain sad. 

Julia Lockwood has grown up in Massachusetts and never been to the country.  Her looks have caused more trouble & heartache than she can stand.  She accepts Mr. Cline's proposal to be a mail-order bride.  The hitch is Everett hasn't been writing the letters;  his friend Rachel is trying to help this lonely bachelor find the helper that God has planned for him.  Two people have never been more completely different...

Melissa Jagears has an amazing talent.  Be looking for this author's books & you won't be disappointed!
