High Treason by Diann Mills

This is the best Diann Mills book I’ve read and I’ve read them all. Diann Mills gets better as an author like ages cheese and fine wine. The character development and research she did for this book was magnificent.

Monica Aiden is a CIA operative and Kord Davidson is an FBI special agent and they are assigned to work together to protect a Saudi prince who is in Houston with some family members to get cancer treatment for his mother and conduct some business. Someone is trying to kill him and all the evidence points to it being one of his trusted team. Monica and Kord are both reluctant to trust a partner they had never previously met but they soon come to rely on each other to crack this difficult case.

This is such a well crafted story that I had to keep to keep reading to find out how it all came out. I loved this book and it will be part of my permanent collection. Tyndale gave me this book in exchange for an honest review and I am so glad they did. All Tyndale fiction books are winners!

The Empowered by Craig Parshall

This story is about disbarred attorney Trevor Black and his newly discovered daughter Heather as they are embroiled in a case involving Voodoo and human trafficking. The story is fast paced and intriguing and kept me in suspense until the very end about who the high powered government employee who was calling the shots of the criminal activity was. I was very impressed with the depth of the characters involved and the intricacies of the plot. I will definitely be looking for more of Mr Parshall’s work in the future.

I loved how the main character’s faith in God and complete reliance on Him throughout was part of the story but not in any contrived or artificial way. It was all just a matter of fact.

I received this book from Tyndale in exchange for my review. I love the quality of Tyndale fiction.

Holding the Fort by Regina Jennings

Lola has lost her job st the Cat Eye Saloon to a younger more accommodating singer. Her younger brother had gotten into some trouble with his superior officer at Ft. Reno in Indian Territory, so Lola decides to go and see if she can fix the situation. She finds a position teaching the commander’s daughters by accident and misinformation.

I enjoyed this book. I loved the characters and the glimpse into our US history. According to the front of the book this is the first of the Fort Reno series. I’m excited to see what new tales will emerge. Regina Jennings is becoming one of my new favorite authors. I reviewed her previous book “For the Record” last year.

I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for my review. I love just about everything from Bethany House and I’m especially happy that this was the book I chose to review this time.
