Love's Dream Song by Sandra Leesmith

I loved this story by Sandra Leesmith. A suspenseful mystery, a romance, mixed heritage, a drug smuggling ring, and the discovery of artifacts, make for a great page turning story.

Autumn is working on an excavation site. She wants to get to know the Navajo that are her family. Jess is part Apache, but running from his heritage. Someone is smuggling drugs and Jess suspects Autumn is part of the ring. He owns the ranch the excavation is located on and has set up barriers to keep him and Autumn from getting involved again.

The professor makes a discovery and someone sets off dynamite. Jess must protect Autumn while protecting his heart and proving whether or not she is part of the drug smuggling ring.

Autumn is trying to find out what happened to her mother and protect the artifacts. Will she find out why Jess decided they couldn't be together anymore? Will she find out the truth about her family roots?

If you're looking for a story that will keep you turning the pages to see what will happen next, this is the book for you!

This story has sensual scenes and some curse words. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

N: The Beginning by Joyce Swann

This is a great start to a new series! N: The Beginning is a short story and the first in a futuristic young adult series. Christianity has been outlawed. Christians are hunted down and arrested. Kids are rounded up and put in a re-education program. Petra Bordeaux leads a band of children, keeping them safe and spreading the news of what the National Council is doing.

How strong are you in your faith? If you were targeted for being a Christian, would you stand firm? Brother and sister, Petra and Artiss Bordeaux, are in such a position. A group of teens in North Texas are fighting for their freedom while escaping capture and imprisonment in a federal re-education center. Seamus shows up and tells Petra it has begun. He leads the way when there seems no way. Do you have faith that God can take care of you? Do you try to take things into your own hands, to help God out? Though friends, family, don't follow God, will you follow the truth on your own? It's your own decision. Not something you do just because your parents did. You have to make the choice. What will your choice be?

I look forward to more books in this series. With the way things are in the world today, this a very timely subject. Even after reading the story, I'm still thinking about how it impacted me. How serious am I about my faith? Would it withstand persecution? Will you be a part of N?
