Ибо так возлюбил Бог мир, что отдал Сына Своего Единородного, дабы всякий верующий в Него, не погиб, но имел хизнь вечную.

Waiting-On-Wednesday: The Sky Above Us by Sarah Sundin

The queen of WWII is bringing another wonderful story in her series that focuses on Normandy {incidentally the only battle I am remotely informed on as it was the focus of my 6th grade research paper ;)} And once again, the cover designer really delivered! Coming Feb 2019

Numbed by grief and harboring shameful secrets, Lt. Adler Paxton ships to England with the US 357th Fighter Group in 1943. Determined to become an ace pilot, Adler battles the German Luftwaffe in treacherous dogfights in the skies over France as the Allies struggle for control of the air before the D-day invasion.

Violet Lindstrom wanted to be a missionary, but for now she serves in the American Red Cross, where she arranges entertainment for the men of the 357th in the Aeroclub on base and sets up programs for local children. Drawn to the mysterious Adler, she enlists his help with her work and urges him to reconnect with his family after a long estrangement.

Despite himself, Adler finds his defenses crumbling when it comes to Violet. But D-day draws near. And secrets can't stay buried forever.

Waiting-On-Wednesday: Code of Valor by Lynette Eason

Coming Jan 2019! I can't wait! This is one of my favorite series so far by Lynette Eason! She blows me away with the St. John family! #excited ;)

What Detective Brady St. John really needs is a relaxing vacation. Unfortunately, just as the sun is setting on his second day at a friend's cabin on Lake Henley, he hears a scream and races to rescue a woman from her would-be killer. When the killer escapes only to return to finish the job, Brady vows to utilize all of his many resources to keep her safe--and catch those who would see her dead.

Financial crimes investigator Emily Chastain doesn't trust many people. And even though she let the detective who saved her life in on a few pertinent facts about why she was being attacked, there are some things you just don't share with a stranger. Little does she suspect that the secret she is keeping just might get them both killed.

Plus switching the cover up a little. It's green instead of blue.... Cool!

Review: A Secret to Die For by Lisa Harris

Sorry that this review is so belated... the book went to my house and not to my PO Box at college... 
Back of the book....
"When one of her clients is murdered, Grace quickly realizes that computer security specialist Stephen Shaw wasn't suffering from paranoia. What she doesn't know is that someone believes Shaw gave her a viral piece of information before he died--- and they are ready to silence her at any cost. Her only hope may be an old friend, Detective Nate Quinn, who has just been cleared for active duty after a bombing killed his partner and left him dealing with PTSD." 

But... the book was surely worth the wait. The action was intense, and the first time I picked it up, I was on page 54 before I realized what was happening to me... (You know, the swirling vortex of a good book) This book has no slow moments. It's crazy from the first moment on. The characters just suck you in and make you feel like you know them. I loved the characters. And I was really annoyed with the bad guy, who had me fooled. I really like figuring out the bad guy beforehand, but this time I didn't. If I were Grace, I'd a been cooked goose. I also liked the fact that Danielle had juvenile diabetes, cause so does my roommate, and it was just another something that made the story real to me. (Bonus points that my roommate and Danielle are both banned from eating cookies currently ;) ) I really liked how the emotional side of life was a focus in this story, and how it was portrayed was really well done. Also, WHY DO THEY ALWAYS STAB PEOPLE WITH DRUGS IN NEEDLES!!??????!! [sorry.... not a needle person...] Can we also just take a moment and freak out over this weird grid thing... like oh my goodness? The world has better technology than innocent little me ever imagined! WOW! That was freaky. But I'm okay. I survived. And I'm ready to read another... which might just make me an adrenaline junkie. 

I received this book in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and comments are my own.
