A cycle of false friendships, threats, drugs, and violence kept her trapped.

The Visionary by Pamela S. Thibodeaux - Review


A visionary is someone who sees into the future. Taylor Forrestier sees into the past but only as it pertains to her work. Hailed by her peers as “a visionary with an instinct for beauty and an eye for the unique” Taylor is undoubtedly a brilliant architect and gifted designer. But she and twin brother Trevor, share more than a successful business. The two share a childhood wrought with lies and deceit and the kind of abuse that’s disgustingly prevalent in today’s society. 

Can the love of God and the awesome healing power of His grace and mercy free the twins from their past and open their hearts to the good plan and the future He has for their lives?

Find out in…The Visionary ~ Where the awesome power of God's love heals the most wounded of souls.

Firewall by DiAnn Mills - A Review

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

After a whirlwind romance, Taryn Young is preparing to board a plane at Houston International Airport, bound for a dream honeymoon, when a bomb decimates the terminal. Injured but still alive, she awakens to discover her husband is missing and they’re both considered prime suspects in the attack. Further, the FBI is convinced her husband isn’t who he appears to be.
Agent Grayson Hall’s number-one priority is to catch those responsible for the day’s act of terror. All evidence is pointing to Taryn and her new husband. But his instinct tells him her pleas of innocence are genuine. Is her naiveté just for show, or could she truly be another victim of a master scheme, possibly linked to the software she recently developed for her company?

Sara and Andy by Ronald Glanz



I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion. No other compensation given.



The myth of love at first sight is real. If you don’t believe it, just ask Sara Baintree and Andy Anderson. They both fell hard when they first met and they truly believe the myth. As they begin to learn about each other, one had to reveal a deep, dark secret while the other has a deep, dark secret to find. The same individual was at the center of those secrets, but after two decades, proof is almost impossible to obtain. What can Sara and Andy do? They have a plan, but will it work?

Riley Mae and the Sole Fire Safari By Jill Osborne



FTC Disclosure: I received this book for the purpose of review.

Pre-teen shoe model Riley Mae laces up her flaming orange Sole Fire running shoes for another ad campaign in the third book of the Faithgirlz! Good News Shoes series. Kenya, Africa is the perfect place for runners to train, with its high elevation and encouragement from members of the famous Kalenjin tribe. It’s also a great hiding place for Riley and her Swiftriver friends from enemies back in the United States, but for how long? Adjusting to African culture is difficult, but by doing work she’s not accustomed to and by spending time with the kids and the Christian women in the village, Riley finds herself growing stronger physically, and praying expectantly for ways that God can use her to spread the Good News. Her prayers are answered in exciting and startling ways when Riley meets an orphaned girl seeking answers at a children’s home in Nairobi, but also when an error in judgment causes her to stumble into a surprise meeting with the enemy.
