Deadly Disclosures (Dinah Harris Mystery) By: Julie Cave

I had not read any books by this author before, but I am glad I read this one! This is an author I will keep a watch on and get future books. I loved this story. The parts about the open debates of creation against science were very interesting. Having debates between both sides of the issue, made it enjoyable instead of dry. This is the whole crux to the story. How far will someone go to silence a strong Christian voice? You won’t want to miss this book! Dinah Harris is suffering from depression and a struggling alcoholic trying to do her job, but not being successful. Every one knows she is one step away from being fired as an FBI agent. Then, high profile Secretary of the Smithsonian turns up missing. Dinah must break through her problems to solve this case! This is a great suspense novel! I can’t wait to read more by this author. Her other books are now on my “to be read” list! If you love suspense, detective novels, and murder investigations, you will love this book!

Proof By: Jordyn Redwood

This is an awesome book! Proof will grab hold of you from page one and not turn lose. The main question running through the whole book is, “Is there any proof that will bring a monster to justice?” Dr Lilly Reeves knows who the serial rapist is, but she can’t prove it. She is struggling with her own demons and isn’t credited with knowing what is going on. With everyone against her, she strikes out on her own to find proof that will condemn the serial rapist, and come to grips with what is going on in her own life. Jordyn Redwood does a great job of developing characters that you will care about. This medical/crime thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat from page one through the end. As the back cover states, this is “a rollercoaster of a story.” You will keep reading just to see where Lilly ends up and if she can prove that a monster is living and working amongst them. Who can Lilly trust? No one; no one believes her or will help her find the answers she needs. Read this book to see what happens. Jordyn Redwood takes you on a journey you won’t believe. I cannot wait to read more by this author. This is one of the best medical/crime thrillers I have ever read!

The Twelfth Juror By: Alexandra and Joyce Swann

This is a great book by Alexandra and Joyce Swann! Megan Cleary has everything going for her—she is a partner in a law firm, has the perfect boyfriend, and is enjoying life to the fullest.

Her way of thinking changes, her lifestyle changes, her financial situation changes, and even who her friends are changes. Who can you turn to when everything around you is crumbling down? God is still in control. That’s the lesson Megan has to learn. Megan buys a gun to protect herself after the shooting, and when she is attacked again by the same man, she shoots and kills him, and then runs. See how she copes with the tragedy that has befallen her and how she deals with the punishment she has bestowed upon her attacker. Once you start this book, you will not be able to put it down. If you love mystery, suspense, and legal thrillers you will love this book. Learning to let go of fear and guilt play a big part in this story; learning to let God be in control of your life is sometimes the hardest thing to do—read to see how Megan turns loose and lets God have control of her life so she can live again. This book is a definite must read and I can’t wait to read other books by Alexandra and Joyce Swann.
