It was a hell of a long shot.... CIA assassin Fortune Redding is about to undertake her most difficult mission ever - in Sinful, Louisiana. With a leak at the CIA and a price placed on her head by one of the world's largest arms dealers, Fortune has to go off-grid, but she never expected to be this far out of her element.

Cassandra Campbell is an awesome Narrator! She is why I bought this book. So even though I only paid $5.95 plus tax, I am returning it.
I can’t handle the bad language. It totally offends me. I didn’t even get 5 minutes into the book. Shame on authors that don’t use our vast vocabulary and rely on garbage.......

In spite of past differences, Trey Walker Stafford would never forget how his uncle, a cowboy and rancher, adopted him and made him part of the family. He'd left the Double S Ranch to pursue music against Sam's wishes and returns discouraged about life and love after tragically losing his wife. Trey feels that he's living a lie, singing of love and happily ever afters while dealing with an emptiness within. What he yearns for, what he truly wants, is peace.

I’ve heard many people say “Children are resilient” and it does seem like that. The main character in this book: Trey Stratford is now a grown Christian man with a great profession. He gives us glimpses of him when he was a little boy. I’ve come to the conclusion in listening to this series that the circumstances surrounding us as we grow up, whatever it is: relocating, a death, kind or unkind words spoken, abuse, or whatever can be long lasting.
I love the way Ruth Logan Herne ties the whole Stratford family’s stories together and the way God’s amazing grace works for the Good.
Barbara McCulloh was a good choice as the narrator.

Famously beautiful model Willow Bradford is taking a temporary break from her hectic schedule to work as the innkeeper at her family's small-town bed-and-breakfast. She was enjoying the peace of her hometown, Merryweather, Washington, right up until she came face-to-face with Corbin Stewart, the man she loves to hate. A thoughtful rule-follower by nature, Willow threw caution to the wind four years ago when she entrusted her heart to Corbin - and suffered the consequences when it all fell apart.

I love this series! Can’t wait for Sister, Britt’s story. Forgiveness and faith come alive in Willow and Corbin’s lives. God is big enough to work things out to his Glory if we let him. Becky Wade is a marvelous author. Please keep them coming. Stephanie Cozart is the perfect narrator. I love the grandmothers voice.

As the ballistics and weapons expert for the FBI's special task force nicknamed the White Knights, Rick Cannon has known the Department of Defense was developing self-steering bullets. Rick feared these smart bullets - which have 100 percent accuracy that can turn even a novice into a lethal sniper - would eventually end up in the hands of the wrong people. But since the ammunition was still in the development stage, he figured they had plenty of time before that happened. He was wrong. Dead wrong.

This is the second book in this series. It arrived in my library early this morning. I finished listening to it tonight.
You can’t judge a person by just seeing the surface. The FBI team “White Knights “ are all retired members of different branches of the Armed forces. They each have a special part in the team, sniper, computers, bombs, forensics, and etc. They are Believers in God and rely on their Faith to help them in their lives. It’s great to listen to a good Inspirational Suspense with out bad language and sex scenes.
I can hardly wait for the next one! I love the Author Susan Sleeman and Narrator Rachel Dulude.

I am so glad I found Lynn Huggins Blackburn. The twists and turns in the plot kept me wondering The Who, why, what, and where. I did not figure it out which is unusual for me.
Way to go Ms. Blackburn!
If you appreciate Inspirational suspense novels you will want to read/listen to this one.
One thing that enticed me to listen is the narrator Kate Forbes, I love her performances.
I can’t wait for more books from these two.

Exciting start of a brand-new series by a contemporary romance fan favorite. After a devastating heartbreak three years ago, genealogist and historical village owner Nora Bradford has decided that burying her nose in her work and her books is far safer than romance in the here and now. Unlike Nora, former Navy SEAL and Medal of Honor recipient John Lawson is a modern-day man, usually 100% focused on the present.

While I love all of Becky Wades books, at first I wasn’t sure of “True to You”. I thought the main person, Nora , was a real ditzy person. I’m so glad that I read on to find the depth of her character. It is normal for God to allow obstacles to happen in our lives. They make us seek him and make us stronger in doing so.
John Lawson enters the story, and the story lines draw you into the humor, romance, and family dynamics of three sisters and the individual Faith and their personalities..
You know how when a coincidence happens and you say “It’s a small world”? When God’s plan unfolds his big picture is truly a small world.

I sure hope this will be anew series!
