The Franciscan Book Cover

The most internationally anticipated religious suspense-thriller since Dan Brown’s Angels & Demons and The Da Vinci Code, WR.PARK’s The Franciscan is now available for sale on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and CreateSpace. Written 14 years ago, The Franciscan eerily forebodes current events in the Vatican predicting the coming of the current Pope Francis and proves to be a timely novel more than a decade after it was penned. This is the first book in The Franciscan Trilogy.

Personal Shelves Review

Hi Everyone,,

Tonight I wanted to share my review of Christmas Wish by Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey. This incredible writing duo has released a new novella in their Countermeasure Series. I absolutely love this spectacular series that has suspense, sub-plots, romance and characters that feel as real as your best friends.

 

Enjoy!

Christmas Wish

Countermeasure Bytes of Life #7

Stephan and Jessica are about to celebrate their first Christmas together as husband and wife. However, their happiness is put to the test as they face their inner fears, in preparation for their bundle of joy. Will they be able to open up to each other, or will their first holiday season also be their last?

Readers are first introduced to the romantic possibilities between Stephan and Jessica in To Russia with Love. In Christmas Wish, readers will fall in love with this couple, as they connect with the newlyweds on a deeper level. Chris Almeida and Cecilia Aubrey have managed to turn 70-ish pages into an emotional, realistic journey that will satisfy the reader’s need to know more about this secondary couple. Christmas Wish is like a present wrapped with a bow for fans of the Countermeasure Series.

 

Notes:
I received an ARC of this book. To learn more about the authors and their work, visit their website.

Sasee Review

Waterline

By: Elizabeth Robertson Huntsinger

Virginia Ross’ life has been turned upside down. Now living on her beloved Chaucer, she is determined to document all of her husband’s assets in order to have a fair divorce settlement. (It is the least she deserves after discovering his affair.) However, when she returns home to her boat she is greeted by the shocking news of her soon-to-be-ex’s death. Now under suspicion as a person of interest, Virginia must learn to balance out her new life with the help of her old friends. Along the way, she stumbles across some horrifying details that may connect her husband’s case to some unsolved mysteries. As she tries to make sense of everything, Virginia’s own life becomes hazardous and she must put her own safety, first.

Waterline gives readers of every genre something to appreciate. There’s the suspense with the murder plot, there’s the details of boat life, some romance, and even a feisty, adorable cat. Huntsinger weaves multiple incidents and storylines into one fascinating page turner. Readers who enjoy suspense stories, with a hint of romance will enjoy this book. The story seamlessly envelops the beautiful South Carolina coast and the rich history of its culture, in a contemporary mystery.  Right from the start with the unique quotes that foreshadow Virginia’s twisted life, this book flows quickly. Readers will be swept up in the author’s passion about boats, South Carolina and historical reenactments.

 

Enjoy!
