210907_1_ftcFull Disclosure by Dee Henderson
Dee Henderson
is back! Sadly, I missed promoting Full Disclosure on “Dee-Day.” (October 2, clever marketing huh? Kudos to Bethany House.) However after finally reading it myself, I’m glad to report that Henderson’s fans will not be disappointed! Full Disclosure is a great read, although it feels a bit long at times, but that’s perfectly fine with those of us that have missed her in the past six years! For more info. on Dee and Full Disclosure, check out her US Today interview.

Ann Silver is a cop’s cop. As the Midwest Homicide Investigator, she is called in to help on the worst of the cases, looking for answers to murder. Hers is one of the most trusted investigative positions in the Midwest.
Paul Falcon is the FBI’s top murder cop. If the victim carried a federal badge or had a security clearance, odds are good he sees the case file or his guys work the murder.
Their lives intersect when Ann arrives to pass a case off her desk and onto his. A car wreck and a suspicious death offer a lead on a hired shooter he is tracking. Paul isn’t expecting to meet someone, the kind that goes on the personal side of the ledger, but Ann Silver has his attention.
The better he gets to know her, the more he realizes her job barely scratches the surface of who she is. She knows spies and soldiers and U.S. Marshals, and has written books about them. She is friends with the former Vice President. People with good reason to be cautious about who they let into their lives deeply trust her. Paul wonders just what secrets Ann is keeping, until she shows him the John Doe Killer case file, and he starts to realize just who this lady he is falling in love with really is . .

Saving-Hope-newer-197x300Saving Hope by Margaret Daley
I’ve never read anything by Margaret Daley, but Saving Hope caught my eye because it’s about themes of human trafficking and teen prostitution. (Which I’ve been concerned about ever since I reviewed Rachel Lloyd’s fabulous book, Girls Like Us.) Apparently human trafficking is also an important subject for Margaret. See her blog post, Why I wrote Saving Hope. Oh, and the book is also great romantic suspense! I can’t wait to read the sequels! 

When a teenager goes missing from the Beacon of Hope School, Texas Ranger Wyatt Sheridan and school director Kate Winslow are forced into a dangerous struggle against a human trafficking organization. But the battle brings dire consequences as Wyatt’s daughter is terrorized and Kate is kidnapped.
Now it’s personal, and Wyatt finds both his faith and investigative skills challenged as he fights to discover the mastermind behind the ring before evil destroys everyone he loves. 

Messenger_mockup.inddThe Messenger by Siri Mitchell
So the Revolutionary War + British-occupied Philedelphia + George Washington’s spies + a Quaker girl questioning her beliefs on non-violence = Amazing! As I’ve come to expect, Siri Mitchell once again takes Historical Romantic Suspense to new levels with The Messenger. Don’t miss this one. 

Hannah Sunderland felt content in her embrace of the Quaker faith until her twin brother ran off and joined the army and ended up captured and in jail. Suddenly Hannah’s world turns on end. She longs to bring her brother some measure of comfort in the squalid, frigid prison where he remains. But the Quakers believe they are not to take sides, not to take up arms. Can she sit by and do nothing while he suffers?
Jeremiah Jones has an enormous task before him. Responsibility for a spy ring is now his, and he desperately needs access to the men in prison, whom they are seeking to free. A possible solution is to garner a pass for Hannah. But while she is fine to the eye, she holds only disdain for him–and agreeing would mean disobeying those she loves and abandoning a bedrock of her faith.
With skill and sensitivity, Mitchell tells a story of two unlikely heroes seeking God’s voice, finding the courage to act, and discovering the powerful embrace of love. 

WithEveryLetter_smWith Every Letter by Sarah Sundin
I really love Sundin’s books. They’re all set during World War II and the best description I can come up with to describe them is “the greatest generation.” They’re great stories, but it also feels like I’m reading a tribute to the amazing men and women and the brave sacrifices they made to give us the gift of freedom that we enjoy today.  

As part of a morale-building program, flight nurse Lt. Mellie Blake begins an anonymous correspondence with Lt. Tom MacGilliver in North Africa. As their letters crisscross the Atlantic, they develop a deep friendship. But when they’re both transferred to Algeria, will their future be held hostage by the past—or will they reveal their identities?
