Christmas Baby Rescue by Jordyn Redwood


MY REVIEW:

It has been awhile since I read a book by Jordyn Redwood. I wasn’t very many pages into Christmas Baby Rescue before I remembered how much I like her books. Her character and plot development are excellent, especially within the requirements of the shorter mass market Love Inspired books.

The author pulled me right into the action almost immediately and I was taken on a breath-taking adventure along with Liam and Ashlyn as they worked desperately to stay alive while protecting her infant niece. I followed them through various plot twists and a surprise or two along the way to the satisfying conclusion.

I loved the fact that hero Liam was handicapped by PTSD and felt inadequate to protect Ashlyn and her niece but he persisted even when circumstances threatened to send him into an episode on more than one occasion. Ashlyn’s determination and compassion were admirable. It was also fun observing the development of a romantic relationship between the two.

I will definitely will not be waiting so long to read another book by this author and I recommend her to other readers.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

An infant on his doorstep…

And enemies closing in.

Liam Knight’s solitary plans for Christmas Eve fall apart when he discovers a baby left outside his cabin—and bloody footprints leading to his injured pen pal. Suffering from PTSD, the former navy SEAL thinks he’s the wrong choice to protect Ashlyn Sutton and her infant niece. But with contract killers on their trail, he must overcome his fear…and stop the criminal behind the threats.

 


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Range by Ronie Kendig

Welcome to the Blog + Review Blitz for Range by Ronie Kendig, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!



MY REVIEW:

I feel inadequate to review this novel. Range is one of those stories that is incredibly difficult to read because it truthfully exposes just how evil some people in power can be. Several characters have experienced things most of us cannot even imagine yet they have somehow never lost hope and continue to attempt to help others in similar circumstances.

Kasra is one of those characters. She has endured mistreatment and degradation to her own body as well as earning the disreputable reputation of the madame who sells young women and children for the sex trade. But Kasra has worked quietly behind the scenes to help as many of them escape as possible. She has not always been successful but her heart yearns to see them all free. Range is one of the men sent to Afghanistan to capture Kasra in order to expose the leaders of the trafficking business. His only focus is to see her punished. Forced to flee together when things go horribly wrong, Range and Kasra learn more about each other than expected and each of them is surprised at what they find.

Range is an exciting tale filled with action and danger. Readers will learn more than they probably want to about the horrors of human trafficking but the author handles the subject carefully and without unneeded information. I found Kazra to be an extraordinary woman and was encouraged by how Range was eventually able to see the real person inside her.

Although Range can be difficult to read at times, I found it to be a story full of hope. I encourage other readers to give it a chance.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Title: Range

Series: The Metcalfes #3

Author: Ronie Kendig

Publisher: Task Force Press

Release Date: September 30, 2022

Genre: Clean with faith elements, Romantic Suspense

He’s back and he’s out for blood

Fed up with living in the shadow of his brothers, Range Metcalfe struck out to carve a name for himself—one written in the blood of many a terrorist. Now, he’s targeting the notorious Madam of Kandahar, who has trafficked children and women. Finally given the green light, he captures her and quickly finds himself entrenched up in a deadly encounter that forces him into the Afghan wilderness—with the madam.

Ten years trapped in human trafficking and five of those spent overseeing a compound, Kasra Jazani has little left of her soul. No longer able to live with herself, she takes matters into her own hands and coordinates an escape, a massive coup against the man who has kept her and so many others captive. They flee into the night—right into the fierce and capable hands of American operators, who ruin everything and put lives at risk. Livid, she knows death is coming for them, because she also holds a very dangerous, very powerful secret: the name of the man at the top of the trafficking ring. Now that monster wants her—and her American protector—dead.

Abduction Cold Case by Connie Queen

Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for Abduction Cold Case by Connie Queen, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

MY REVIEW:

Abduction Cold Case quickly caught my attention just a few pages into the book. Not only did the action and danger kick off quickly but I was intrigued by the personal connection of cold case psychologist Kennedy Wells to the case. Could it be a coincidence. Then there was Texas Ranger Silas Boone, on leave from his job and who just happened to be a witness to the original abduction.

As the story progressed, the danger and suspense escalated and unanswered questions increased. Why was the case folder left on Kennedy’s desk? Who wanted Kennedy out of the way and why? Could her parents have lied to her all her life? Answers to these questions and more are found within the pages of this book as well as plenty of unexpected twists and a sweet romance.

I thoroughly enjoyed Abduction Cold Case and look forward to reading more books by this author in the future.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book provided by JustReads Publicity. A favorable review was not required. All views expressed are my own.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

With someone willing to kill to end the investigation, can they uncover the truth…and live to see Christmas?

Defending Honor by Lynette Eason with Kelly Underwood

Welcome to the Instagram + Review Tour for Defending Honor  by Kelly Underwood presented by Lynette Eason,, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

MY REVIEW:

Defending Honor is another installment of Eason’s Elite Guardians Collection published by Sunrise Publishing. As expected the action begins almost immediately and doesn’t let up until the end. Plenty of unexpected twists and surprises leave readers wondering who wants to do away with Preston Whittaker as well as anyone close to him. Former Mossad agent Laila Rabbinowitz would like the answer to that also as she is assigned to protect him while trying to stay alive herself.

A page-turner indeed, Defending Honor was everything I expected. Excellent character development and escalating danger made the book an enjoyable read. An unwanted attraction between Laila and Preston added to the mix and it was fun to observe its development. Preston’s personal growth was especially encouraging.

As always I recommend anything by Lynette Eason and I love how she and other established authors are providing new authors an opportunity through Sunrise Publishing.

I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book provided by JustReads Publicity. A favorable review was not required. All views expressed are my own.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

She’ll have to pretend to be his wife to save his life…but what will it cost her heart?

Laila Rabbinowitz is all business. Tough and stoic, she was the perfect Mossad agent…until a terrible betrayal led to her worst nightmare. Being a bodyguard with the Elite Guardians allows her to keep her heart safe—she’ll never let anyone close enough to betray her again. And she’s certainly not going to trust anyone who doesn’t earn it.

Billionaire and former playboy Preston Whittaker walked away from his famous family after a terrible event, but then his father and brother are killed in a suspicious boating accident. Since he’s next in line to helm the family business, now someone wants him dead. Preston needs someone by his side 24/7, and the only solution is a fake marriage.

In order to keep him safe, Laila will have to convince everyone that she and Preston are in love. She’s used to putting her life on the line for a client. But what will this case cost her heart?

Book three of the riveting, high-octane world of the Elite Guardians reboot!
