    Story

    This sequel to Rekindled was wonderful. The narrator did an excellent job. This was my second time to hear a book by Tamera Alexander and I am hooked on her writing. The only thing I did not like in both books was the use of the word Whore over and over. I really don't feel words like that should be used in books that are labeled Christian fiction. The reason I read and listen only to Christian Fiction is for that very reason. I know they are safe from profanity, vulgarity and crude language. Other than that it was perfect in every way.

Alive but disoriented, she's rescued by Luke Stone...so unfortunately, there are more chances to die in her immediate future. Luke is heading home to reclaim the ranch stolen from his family.

    I usually don't listen to anything that has a western theme, but this story was wonderful, with great characters and humor and everything needed to make a good story. The narrator did a fantastic job.

    On his way to interview for a position at a church in the Piney Woods of Texas, Crockett Archer can't believe it when he's forced off the train by an outlaw and presented to the man's daughter as the preacher she requested for her birthday. He's determined to escape - which would be much easier if he could stop thinking about Joanna Robbins and her unexpected request. For months, Joanna had prayed for a minister. A man to breathe life back into the abandoned church at the heart of her community. A man to assist her in fulfilling a promise to her dying mother. But just when it seems her prayers have been answered, it turns out the parson is there against his will....

    This was a delightful story that I couldn't stop listening to. The person that read the story did an excellent job, very entertaining with the way she used such wonderful expression I felt like I was right there in the story with her. This book had everything you would want in it.

    Story

    What a great story. It takes a while to figure out who everyone is and put it together but that is ok because it is so interesting with so many different people and just when you think the story is going one way it takes a sharp turn to somewhere else. The narrator did an excellent job with the right expression and voice change. Plan on listening to all Julie Klassen books.

    Story

    This book was depressing and wonderful at the same time. You can't imagine that so many bad things could happen to one person. At first it was hard to understand the narrator but after I adjusted to his voice is was very good. It kept you guessing to the very end about what really happened.

    To the FBI, it's a cold case. To Kariss Walker, it's a hot idea that could either reshape or ruin her writing career. And it's a burning mission to revisit an event she can never forget. Five years ago, an unidentified little girl was found starved to death in the woods behind a Houston apartment complex. A TV news anchor at the time, Kariss reported on the terrifying case. Today, as a New York Times best-selling author, Kariss intends to turn the unsolved mystery into a suspense novel.
