Taut with emotional suspense, author Sandra Glahn catapults readers smack dab in the middle of the world of medical ethics, exploring the desperate lengths folks will go to find a cure. Expertly drawn characters, a Grisham-paced plot, and intelligent writing, Informed Consent is everything I like about medical thrillers.

A Bigger Life by Annette Smith is a touching, realistic look at authentic characters grappling with complicated choices and painful circumstances on the backdrop of a quirky Texas town. Smith’s characters exude gritty humanity, still revealing snatches of grace and beauty in the midst of life’s fickle circumstances. If you enjoy modern southern drama, with […]

Lyrically written, sensitively wrought, Susan Meissner’s In All Deep Places captivated me from page one. Meissner’s strength is displaying the inner emotional landscape of her characters, this time putting the reader in the head of a male protagonist. Woven in such a way that beckons instead of dictates, Meissner’s message of redemption and heaven will […]

Talking to the Dead is a deeply moving narrative about grief, sanity, love, betrayal, and hard-won redemption. Bonnie Grove entices, tortures, then salves her readers through gritty characters and pitch-perfect writing. I thought about this book long after I put it down, and it stays with me today. Highly recommended.

Bad Ground by W. Dale Cramer, Bethany House. I didn’t think a book about blasting holes in the earth would appeal to me, but Cramer’s eloquent and haunting prose drew me in. As I read, I remembered the feeling I got when I first read Christy by Katherine Marshall, that although both wrote about people […]

A while back, my agent asked if I had any Amish suspense. I did not. But, being the feisty girl I am, I decided to create one. Here was my “pitch” I sent her. She, then, sent it on to my editor under the guise of seriousness. (ALERT: This is parody, tongue in cheek. Please […]

I read Hope Rising on the plane and during quiet moments at Write to Publish last week. And in many ways, it changed my perspective on my own life. Crawling into Kim Meeder’s heart felt like jumping into an adventurer. The story? Kim and her husband bought some over-used over-mined land in Oregon with a […]

Wow. Maybe it’s because I think I left my heart in Africa, in the northern regions of Ghana. Maybe that’s why I loved this book. Or maybe it’s because I am deeply saddened by the state of children and women in some of the poorest nations on earth. Or because sometimes I don’t feel like […]

I adored this book. Why? It reminded me of Marilynn Robinson’s Gilead. The voicing of Mary-Margaret and each character was completely distinct and beautiful. Though not necessarily a suspenseful book, I couldn’t wait to turn the page. The language was stunning. Sometimes I would read a sentence, then put the book down, wondering how Lisa […]
