Fault Lines by Thomas Locke

I really am looking forward to the next book in this series. I need to know what is going to happen to this group of people. Where will this project go? There were many twists and turns throughout this book. Everyone had a slightly different reaction to what was happening in this experiment. I received a copy of this book from Revell for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

 

As a security expert, Charlie Hazard is all about taking control of the situation. But when the stunning Dr. Gabriella Speciale draws him into a secret psychological project, risk parameters are shattered. Every move brings him to the edge of one fault line after another, and Charlie struggles to stay clear of a maelstrom of entangled dangers.
The research team abandons the lab on the Florida coast and flees to a mountain refuge in Italy. The battles in Charlie’s mind are overtaken by real life attacks. He must grapple with the daunting realization that a conspiracy is taking hold on both internal and external levels. Can Gabriella be trusted, or is she just part of the scheme?
Leave behind your assumptions about the way the world works, and race along the unknown corridors of human consciousness in Fault Lines.

Chasing Secrets by Lynette Eason

This series just gets better and better. I love learning more each book about all the characters in the Elite Guardians. This one has Haley in it and we get to learn more of her background. There are many twists and turns through this story. I received this book through Revell for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

 
Haley Callaghan works for the all female The Elite Guardian Protection Agency and has vowed to protect her client at any cost. Her new assignment takes her to West Ireland to open a twenty-five-year-old cold case. When her life and the life of the young client is in danger, Detective Steven Rothwell steps in to keep them both safe. 

Many Sparrows by Lori Benton

I am never disappointed by a Lori Benton book. I could not put this book down. I cried during this story. I felt awful for Clare and for Abigail. What happened during these times of war were horrible for all. It was hard for Jeremiah also. It was never fair for whites that were rais d as Indians to be made to go back to a world that they no longer understood. I received a copy of this book from bloogingforbooks for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will. 
When settler Clare Inglesby’s son is captured by Indians, she enlists the help of frontiersman and adopted Shawnee Jeremiah Ring. But when they find the tribe, they discover Jeremiah’s sister has taken custody of Jacob—and things become much more complicated. Will Clare take matters into her own hands—or let God fight the battle for her? 400 pages, softcover from Waterbrook.

Out of the Ashes by A.M. Heath with a giveaway

This was a very good after the Civil War book. This showed what it was like for people after the war ended. It shows how the soldiers felt and the women that were left behind felt. I enjoyed the many characters. I enjoyed the small stories that were told throughout the book. I sometimes felt there were almost too many main characters and sometimes had trouble remembering who was who. I would recommend not reading this when you are tired. I look forward to reading the next in the series. I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

Go to the end for the link to the giveaway.


Out of the Ashes Blurb: Sometimes peace is won through battle. 
Haunted by the memories he can’t escape, Ralph Williams wants to be left alone to lick his wounds. He doesn’t understand why he’s forced into the company of the one woman he least desires. Can God bring him healing through such uncomfortable circumstances?
Frank Harper thought he had left the war and its turmoil behind, but the home to which he has returned is anything but peaceful. When racial tensions arise in Maple Grove, Frank finds himself on a battlefield once more. He’s desperate for peace, but at what cost?
When George Chandler heads off to wed his beloved bride, things don’t go as expected. Just as George starts to get comfortable with what he believes is God’s new plan for his life, history threatens to repeat itself. Will he fight for the woman he’s come to love, or will he let her go?
The War Between the States has destroyed more than just a nation. In four years, it has damaged bodies and wounded souls until the people think that nothing is left. Will they find the healing they so desperately need from the God that loves them?

About Molly’s Books:

Change of Heart

A modern new century brings a young Amish woman an unexpected new life—and a chance
to discover love’s true way home…

Ohio, 1899. Soft-spoken midwife Becca Yost lived by her Amish faith’s strict rules—until her
fiancé jilted her before their entire community. She’s never been away from home, but the

bustling Englischer town of Massillon, Ohio, is a welcome unexpected refuge. Especially when
she goes to work for Dr. Matt Carrington, who shares her passion for healing those in need. His
outgoing spirit and gentle strength show Becca a surprising new world of choices—and

irresistible love. But there is one formidable obstacle: Matt’s wealthy mother is determined her
son will marry a society woman.

With her newfound resolve challenged, Becca decides that she and Matt must not be destined for
each other after all. She accepts that she will have to forge a life alone—until a wrenching crisis
and life-changing revelations teach her that true faith lies in all things, especially impossible
second chances


Grace’s Forgiveness

A handsome newcomer with secrets shows a yearning Amish woman a chance at happiness—
but their love will need all their courage to keep . . .

Grace Blauch is skilled at midwifery—and crafting quilts that help others pass on messages of
enduring family love. But a disfiguring birthmark keeps the young Amish woman from a
husband and home of her own—until Mark King arrives from another community. His
helpfulness and independent nature earn Grace’s respect. And he finds her outspoken ways and
determination to do right irresistibly appealing. Soon Grace is planning a wedding quilt of her
very own . . . until her father discovers that Mark’s shunned brother is hiding somewhere in town
. . .

Grace can well understand why Mark took such a risk once she hears his wrenching reasons. But
she fears even prayer will not convince her father to restore his blessing on their union. She wills
herself to face the end of her dreams, but sudden danger and an impossible act of generosity will
show her that abiding hope can inspire the most precious of miracles . . .


Two Suitors for Anna

In 1903 Ohio, a young Amish woman must choose between the life she has long planned for
and a new, very different future…

Since Anna Plank moved to Berlin, Ohio, with her widowed mamm and two schweschders, she’s
found a real sense of belonging. As soon as her beloved Noah Schwartz proposes, they’ll begin a
new chapter here together. But Noah has a surprise for Anna: once they’re married, he wants
them to travel and live in other communities. Anna, who loves her home and her job at the quilt
shop, is distraught when he takes her hesitation as rejection—and leaves.

Daniel Bontrager’s arrival adds to Anna’s confusion. Since taking over his late brother’s farm,
the handsome roofer has offered friendship and gentle attentions. Yet the pull of first love is
strong and deep, especially when Noah returns. Through each revelation, Anna must search her
faith for guidance, knowing she is choosing not just a husband, but a life to nurture and to
share…

Gathering the Threads by Cindy Woodsmall

This has been one of my favorite series ever. This was the last book in the series and it wraps up everything wonderfully. Ariana has to learn to fit back in with her Amish family without forgetting her new English family. As much as she wanted to be back in her Amish family it is harder than she thought to give up some of the independence that she found in the English world. Skylar is also still trying to get over her drug dependence and decide whether she wants to go back to the English world. This book flows so wonderfully and I love the ending. I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.  I would give this higher than five of five stars if I could.

Having explored her relationship with her biological family, Arian Brenneman has returned to the Amish family that raised her. Her Amish father sees that she is questioning his authority and worries that her influence may cause an uprising with his entire family. Skyler Nash is Arian’s birth sister and now living with the Brenneman’s, her biological family. Skyler’s identity and sobriety is at risk with the return of Arian. The sisters will now learn the true meaning of family and community.
