Publisher's Summary

Inheritance? Check. Solo trip before getting married? Check. Dangerous hot guy she shouldn't get involved with in a thousand years? Oh, honey, that's a check. From author Normandie Fischer comes a new romantic suspense that takes the listener from the hills of Italy to the Jordanian desert and from there to an Israel on the brink of war with Hamas.

Rina Lynne has never traveled far from Morehead City, North Carolina. So when she inherits her father's secret stash, she's ready to kick up her heels and go adventuring before she settles down to marry her long-time fiancé. First stop, Italy.

Enter Tony (aka Anton), an engineering geek conned into helping his Israeli cousins as a sort-of spy. From the moment he meets Rina, he's distracted, which is not a good idea when there's already been murder and theft. And from the moment Rina meets Tony, she's fascinated, which is also not a good idea. He's an Arab-American, and she's half-Jewish. And engaged. And then there are all those bodies dropping around them, each linked to the gathering storm in the Middle East.

    Story
    "Very, very good all around!"

    The basic story is of a woman who has decided to travel on her own when she comes into an inheritance. She meets a man that she is immediately drawn to. He's attracted to her also, but his life is a little complicated at the moment. He has been drawn into doing a little espionage for his cousin. There are people hunting him, which makes a romance a bit difficult to work in. When he disappears, she tightens her belt and heads off to dangerous countries to try to find him. Is he dead? If she does find him alive, has he lost all interest in her? Could the journey endanger her as well?
    This isn't my usual listen and to be honest, I got lost sometimes with all the different names, places and religious references that were made. I'm sure I would have gotten more out of it if I'd been able to keep it all straight, but it was still a great story and awesome narration! I didn't downgrade my rating because of things that were my fault in understanding the story.
    This book had suspense, espionage, romance, travel and self-discovery. It is very relevant to the times and what is going on in the world today. You should definitely give it a try.

    Story
    "International Intrigue with a Splash of Magnolia"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Two from Isaac's House to be better than the print version?

    I enjoy reading, but I'm often crunched for time. Both the print and the audio are fine works, but the audio version came in handy on this occasion. I listened to it while driving to and from work.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Nice tension and conflict in a well-crafted story about a southern woman who visits Italy and gets caught up in international intrigue.


    Any additional comments?

    Normandie Fischer delivers yet another well-written novel with Two from Isaac's House, successfully blending an international story with a touch of southern fiction. Brandon Potter did an excellent job narrating the story and the various accents and languages within. Well done!

    Story
    "This was really good and pulled me in..."

    This was an free audiobook I won in a Facebook contest!

    Wow, it's not at all what I expected, but I did enjoy it very much! Soo much detail about overseas and their vacation!

    I don't usually read books like this! I mostly enjoy the sweet Christian romances set in the 1880s or so!

    This was really good and it pulled me in but with so much death and fear, it wasn't something I could listen to late at night and expect to sleep right after!

    I'm glad they both thought about the faith of their ancestors and started to at least be open to praying and believing that God put them together in a divine pattern. I would have like to see their faith grow a bit deeper myself. I felt the uncle was just starting his walk with Jesus but it wasn't really expounded upon either!

    For a while I thought the Southern friend who gets engaged to an Italian was a double agent! Their friendship seemed to deep to fast to be real but I do know it happens! Especially when you need a friend like she did! Since I only heard the names, I have no idea how to spell either of the girls in this story!

    Thanks for letting me listen and try a new genre!!

    Story
    "Realistic espionage"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Two from Isaac's House to be better than the print version?

    I don't read the print versions of the books I listen to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The realistic story line.


    Which character – as performed by Brandon Potter – was your favorite?

    Acie


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the whole story and the way it was performed. The producer has a great range of accents. It took me a couple of chapters to get used to the them, but once I did I could hardly put the book down. There was just the right balance of action and reflection. And I love that the story was CLEAN. I've been told this is book one and I can't wait for book 2.

    Story
    "Amazing Vocal!"
    What did you love best about Two from Isaac's House?

    I loved the setting and how the author paints the backdrops with all the senses.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Two from Isaac's House?

    The most memorable moments in this story are the small moments when the food and the ambiance work together to make the reader (listener) feel like he's there.


    Have you listened to any of Brandon Potter’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have never heard this reader before, but his voice is dreamy and he manages so many accents! Syrian, Italian, Jordanian, Israeli, and American southern to start . . . his performance truly gives the reader a theatrical experience. Loved this vocal performance.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Love and danger with a streak of providence.


    Any additional comments?

    Italy, sounds so romantic, right? Well, yes. Except for the terror ring, espionage, coincidences, and dead bodies. But there's a hunky tall American who can't get his mind off a sweet, tall American girl who's in WAY over her head. Circumstances throw them together, and then pull them apart.
    What a story! Totally unique and truly fascinating.

    "Great story!!"

    I'm not usually a reader of suspense terrorist type books however once I started "Two from Isaacs House" I couldn't quit listening to see what would happen next.
    Imagine living your whole life being brought up thinking your dirt poor and being embarrassed by how your father made you live and dress only to find out he lied to you your whole life!
    Now you have inherited his small fortune & before you marry and settle down for life you decide to embark on a journey of your lifetime- never imagining what that journey brings.... New love exotic travel & adventures of a lifetime!
    Although different from Normandie's past books it was excellent!!

    "Jenny's review"

    I have to say this a very interesting story and it's very relevant to what's happening with terrorists in the world today. The author also has a cool name! This is the first book that I have listened to narrated by a man. Not bad. :)

    After the death of her father and needing a break from life Rena Lynn was determined to travel the world no matter what her fiancé thought. Things started going all wrong after realizing she'd heard a murder happen on the train she was traveling on to Prussia. Also traveling on the train was a scary scare faced man, a handsome tall gentleman and a tall woman who'd all play an important roll in her new world.
