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. http://kittysroar.blogspot.com/2016/12/for-record-by-regina-jennings.html


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.
