Book Review: Unknown Threat by Lynn H. Blackburn (Defend and Protect #1)

Unknown Threat

About this Book-

US Secret Service Special Agent Luke Powell is lucky to be alive. Three of his fellow agents have died in unusual circumstances in the past ten weeks. Luke is devastated by the loss of his friends and colleagues, and his inability to locate the killer feels like a personal failure. He’s an expert at shielding others, but now the protectors are in need of protection.

FBI Special Agent Faith Malone is driven to succeed and confident in her ability to solve every case she’s assigned. She’s been put in charge of the investigation into the unprecedented attacks, and with Luke’s life in danger, the stakes have never been higher. But it’s hard to know how to fight back when you don’t know who the enemy is.

As more agents are targeted, Luke and Faith will have to work together to bring a killer to justice and prevent any more names from joining their fallen brothers and sisters on the Secret Service Wall of Honor.

My Review-

This was such a fun book! Over the past year or so, I’ve been really into reading suspense Christian fiction and exploring new authors that I haven’t read before. This was the first book I had read by Lynn Blackburn, and I was really excited for it. It was super fast paced and exciting, and I enjoyed it so much!

If I had to use one word to describe this book, it would be fast. This book moved SO quickly! The entirety of the book takes place over the course of about a week, and it starts off with a bang, literally! It begins with an active gunman shooting at one of the protagonists (and his friends), and it does not slow down from there. (Not a spoiler since it’s in the blurb).

There were a ton of characters in the book, and while they were a little bit tricky to keep track of, it only took me a little bit to get the hang of who was who. The main characters were Luke and Faith (though future books promise the stories of other characters!), who were both such good characters! Most of the story was told from Luke’s perspective, though Faith also had intersecting chapters.

Faith was such a neat character, if albeit a little unrealistic. She was smart, witty, and hardworking, and the story covers her first major case. She felt a little unrealistic at times, but I think that was due to the writing of the character: her descriptions simply did not flow as well as Luke’s did, for some reason. Both she and Luke had deep and traumatizing backstories, and as the case unfolded, so did they.

The rest of the cast were super fun too: they bantered a lot with each other, and they did all the things friends did: banter with each other, have inside jokes, and have deep conversations. Several of the running jokes throughout the book were really amusing, and not overdone or cheesy, which I’ve not found in many books.

So much happened in this book, but the pacing was just right: it never felt too fast or too slow, and there were just enough things happening to keep the story moving, without being overwhelming. It was a lot more character based (though definitely not character-driven) than some other suspense novels that I’ve read, but overall, the story moved smoothly.

I definitely wasn’t expecting the ending, though through no fault of my own, I don’t think. The actual plot, motive, and cause were really strange to me: I didn’t quite expect or understand what the motive behind the killings were. I don’t really mind, because in suspense books a certain level of suspension of disbelief is needed, but for those who think this is ~the real deal~, I . . . would be a little wary.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book! The pacing and character banter made it really enjoyable, and I look forward to reading more books from the author.

Book Review: Make Their Day by Karen Ehman

About the Book-

You dream of making your presence really count in the lives of others, but you don’t know where–or how–to start. You want to be remembered as a woman who scattered kindness to everyone she knew, but you feel like your busy schedule constantly gets in the way.

In this practical and deeply touching guide–inspired by her book Reach Out, Gather In–popular author Karen Ehman gives you 101 actionable ideas you can implement today to truly make a difference in the lives of other people. Make Their Day is filled with creative ideas to connect with your family and friends on a deeper level throughout the year. This book will help you develop habits of kindness, reconnect with friends and family, and make encouraging people a priority. You’ll be able to put these ideas into action in real time with everyone in your life–even if hospitality doesn’t come naturally to you or you don’t think you have time.

Let’s outshine the negativity and hatred in our world, and reach out to others with love, just as God intended.

My Review-

This was a fun little book! It was a book of suggestions on how to serve others, and included a bunch of printables/recipes to supplement the ideas. Many of the ideas are pretty cheesy, very churchish (a jello mold with celery and carrots /is/ suggested), and involves buying things from the dollar store for people, but overall it was a nice thought and some people might enjoy it.

It was 101 ideas, which makes it a rather short book (I read it in an afternoon), and it’s divided up into several sections (along the lines of family, friends, neighbors, church friends, your community, etc), which makes it easy to navigate. Both of these together make it a pretty easy book to read, but not one that I wouldn’t personally buy. The tips that are included are not particularly creative, so while it is nice to have a compilation of ideas, the tips can easily be looked up on Pinterest or something of the sort. The cover is very cute though, so it would make a very cute coffee table book if that is what you are going for.

Overall, personally I think the market for these types of books is both saturated, and made obsolete due to the existence of the internet, so I cannot honestly recommend it. This ironically would be a good gift idea for an older lady at church, or your grandma, or something, so if that’s what you need, then it would be a good fit for you.

Book Review: Dreams of Savannah by Roseanna M. White

About the Book-

Cordelia Owens can weave a hopeful dream around anything and is well used to winning the hearts of everyone in Savannah with her whimsy. Even when she receives word that her sweetheart has been lost during a raid on a Yankee vessel, she clings to hope and comes up with many a romantic tale of his eventual homecoming to reassure his mother and sister.

But Phineas Dunn finds nothing redemptive in the first horrors of war. Struggling for months to make it home alive, he returns to Savannah injured and cynical, and all too sure that he is not the hero Cordelia seems determined to make him. Matters of black and white don’t seem so simple anymore to Phin, and despite her best efforts, Delia’s smiles can’t erase all the complications in his life. And when Fort Pulaski falls and the future wavers, they both must decide where the dreams of a new America will take them, and if they will go together.

tw // rape and sexual violence

This was an interesting book! I have read many of Roseanna’s books before (and have even met her in person once!) and loved them, so I was excited to read her new release. It was very different from her previous books, and while this one was also good, it wasn’t my favorite.

First of all, this book was set in the Civil War era, in the Confederate states. The main characters, Cordelia and Phineas, are members of two families who own slaves/plantations, who have liked each other since before the book started, and get into an “understanding” fairly early on into the book. Since Phineas, or Phin as he likes to be known, is a Confederate soldier, most of this book details the time that they are apart, and the individual struggles and growth that they go through.

With that premise, it makes sense that this book is very white focused: both Cordelia and Phineas have slaves (although they call them servants), and despite being more open to the fact that black people aren’t merely animals, they still treat their servants as below them for the vast majority of the book, which is my main concern with this book. Despite the main characters being more sympathetic to the black people working for them, they still treat them in a “less than” fashion. With that, I did like the parts of the book narrated by the black people in the story, as well as their portrayals in general: as the story develops, the humanity of the black people comes to light. Although I understood why this story was told the way it was, I’m kind of wondering what a black reader would feel like reading this book.

Moreover, this book felt quite “preachy” for a lot of it. There were a lot of “spontaneous” sermon-conversations, a la characters randomly breaking into song during a musical. There were some really /interesting/ conversations meant as “the message” that was intended to be conveyed, such as one at the beginning where Phineas asked a tall black man, essentially, “if you weren’t made to work in the fields, why do you look like that?” Again, as the story progresses, both the main characters (as well as some of the white side characters) begin to learn the value and importance of black people, which somehow wasn’t really made clear in the beginning? As someone who is not black, I can’t say whether or not that is a fair portrayal, and I understand why the story was told how it was, but at the very least, it bears mentioning.

Not only that, there was a LOT of just . . . violence. Nothing actually portrayed, but there was a lot of suggestions towards sexual violence, especially towards slaves. There was one particularly sleazy character, who was very interested in (marrying) Cordelia. While Cordelia understood that he did not have good intentions, she didn’t really try to do anything about it, other than pawning her sister off on him (since she already had a love interest)??? SO that was something that bothered me, although it was only mentioned once. Someone important to the story had also taken advantage of a black slave woman, and the resulting child was also not treated well by the man. There was also several scenes where aforementioned sleazy character pulled a girl into a secluded room and attempted to kiss her (and it is suggested that he would go farther than kissing, although it never happened). There was just a LOT of implied sexual violence that was not only unnecessary, but also A Lot to read.

As for the characters, I was honestly not a fan of the main (white) characters. The protagonist, Cordelia, was simply unlikeable, not in any particular way, but I never really connected with her. She had a very vivid imagination, and wrote a ton of stories, but that was pretty much her only character trait. Her parents were also selfish and generally terrible people (both to her, as well as to their slaves), and she really did not question it until the very end of the book. Phineas was a slightly more likeable character: his growth development was incredible, and more noticeable starting midway through the book. He did start out the book being very much a “woo confederacy” type, being excited to go into the Confederate army and kill the “Yankees that are ruining everything.” His view on slavery was very much ‘it’s bad but there’s nothing I can do about it’ and he used the excuse that Georgia didn’t allow people to free their slaves as the reason why he kept them so that was . . . Not Great. He was more likable than Cordelia, and I connected more with him in general, but he’s nowhere near my favorite fictional male characters.

The black side characters–Selina, Luther, River, and all the servants–really made the story much more enjoyable. Their characters were somehow more fleshed out than Cordelia and Phineas, and their motivations, personalities, and beliefs, were significantly more enumerated, and thus, relatable. I found myself more invested in them than the main characters, and their story was just . . . better (than overcoming racism, which was what Cordelia and Phineas were going through).

The spiritual content was very well done: there was a lot of mentions of God, and references to prayer, and just an overall spiritual focus throughout the book. Scripture was quoted several times, and in that regards, I do like it.

Overall? This was a very deep and heavy story. It meant to cover both sides of the Civil War, and to tell the story of humanity on both sides. I think it did achieve that purpose, however, I think the way it did so was lacking. There was a lot of violence and unsavory characters and situations, and while it is mostly resolved in the end, it does not mitigate the generations of suffering of black people at the hands of white people, and this portrayal is more harm than good in my opinion. Quite honestly, as I was starting this book, I expected that I would not like it as much as the author’s other works (which are among my favorite books), and I was right.

Bestselling and award-winning author Lynette Eason will have you looking over your shoulder as you dive into this fast-paced, suspense-filled story about losing control and finding something even better.

My Review-

tw: suicide, ptsd, emotional abuse, child abuse

This was such a fun suspense book! Christian suspense fiction has definitely become a genre I’ve come to enjoy more and more, and while it isn’t necessarily the “best” fiction or the most realistic, I still enjoy them & think they’re really fun!

I started this book around 11pm, thinking I would read a few chapters before bed. Bad idea: it was 4 am before I finished the book and went to sleep. While I didn’t really enjoy the other book from this series that I’ve read (Acceptable Risk, book 2 in the series), I found this book really fun and super exciting!

The main suspense plot of this book was that of Heather, a medical doctor who suffers PTSD from her time in Afghanistan, and a stalker, who quickly becomes violent and begins to pose a threat to her safety. The love interest is Travis, who has liked Heather for a while but has never made a move, as she was never interested.

Overall, there were several plot points that didn’t seem very feasible in real life, and several that were just a tad unrealistic, like one of the large plot points about Heather’s PTSD (a viral video of her in Afghanistan is involved & just ???? that doesn’t make you famous/a target for people trying to kill you?). Many of them were good, but there were just some that were just too perfect, in my opinion.

My favorite character from this story is Ryker, who is an abused teen that Heather and Travis find and take in. He is so sweet and thoughtful, and his character development is just so cool to read! I also really liked the dynamic of the friend group: although Heather doesn’t want to harm any of her friends, they still all rally around her and give their help, which was just so sweet! I also really looooved the time that they spent on Travis’ farm: the big family in the countryside with animals trope always makes me SO happy.

Unlike in book 2, I didn’t guess who the antagonist was in the book until rather late. Overall, I think this book was better developed than the previous one (albeit still lacking in some plot points), and I did enjoy it more than the other one. I still don’t really agree with the use of the war in Afghanistan as a narrative device, but this one was certainly a lot better than in book 2. I would recommend it to fans of suspense!

My Review-

This was such a sweet middle grade story! Dawn and the Letters is the second book in Eliza Noel’s Dawn Chandler series, and it was so fun to read more about Dawn’s life! While it was helpful to have had read book 1, Dawn Chandler, it was definitely not necessary, and the story was fun either way.

Similar Reviews: Dawn Chandler (Dawn Chandler #1)

Like the previous book, this book was directed at kids between 8-12 years old, and the writing style and story line reflected such. The story was really sweet and I feel like I would have really enjoyed it when I was younger.

The message of this book was also really good: the primary theme was forgiveness, and it appeared frequently throughout the book. I also really enjoyed the mystery aspect of this book, which gave it a fun twist. It reminded me of books like the Three Cousins Detective Club or the Cul-de-Sac Kids that I read when I was younger.

The characters were really fun to read: the sibling banter was very amusing and I enjoyed it a lot! I also love books set in a small town, so that was perfect in that regard too.

Overall, it was a very cute and fun read that I would definitely recommend to young readers!

Similar Reviews-

This was a really fun book! I’ve read a ton of Jen Turano’s work previously and I have enjoyed them all a lot. Turano’s characters are always so witty and fun, and it is just always a good time all around. I was really excited to see that there was another series from her coming and to meet the cast of new characters. As usual, it was humorous and bantery and all the characters were a lot of fun: I particularly enjoyed Gabriella’s friendship with the other girls who lived at the boardinghouse: they were all so unique! Like usual, it took me a little bit to get into the story, but once I started figuring out who was who, it all made sense.

This book was very similar to Roseanna M. White’s Shadows Over England series, in that the characters were from a street thief background. As per typical Jen Turano style, the book was set in New York society in the late 1800s, with The Four Hundred featured, but with a twist of wacky events that just seem to happen that require a tiny bit of suspension of disbelief, such as things that could have happened, but just seemed to work out *just so*, or little character traits that probably couldn’t happen in real life but just did in the book (like a dog that only listens if one speaks in pirate).

I wasn’t a huge fan of either of the main characters, and there didn’t seem to be a ton of chemistry between them, but I enjoyed them plenty. The fact that they were childhood friends called back to the “Shadows Over England” series (is it a call back if it’s a reference to another series by another author?), and I do like that trope. I did enjoy one of the side characters, Daphne, though! (and little birdies tell me that the next book is about her which I’m super excited about!). The Bleecker Street Inquiry Agency was SO MUCH FUN (think: women in the late 1800s forming a tiny little detective group) and I’m super excited to read more in the series because of it.

It felt like the storyline moved a little bit slowly in the beginning, but it definitely picked up as the book moved along. The wrapping up of the storyline was really interesting: I think it really added to the “suspension of disbelief” aspect of it, since it didn’t really feel like things should/could have happened the way they are.

Overall, I enjoyed the book a lot and I’m really excited to see where the rest of this series goes!

Book Review: The Escape by Lisa Harris (US Marshals #1)

About the Book-

US Marshals Madison James and Jonas Quinn are thrust into a high-profile case when they are called on to transport two prisoners across the country on a private plane. But when the plane experiences engine trouble en route from the Pacific Northwest to Colorado, the pilots crash-land the aircraft deep in the heart of the sprawling Salmon-Challis National Forest.

When Madison and Jonas regain consciousness, they find both pilots and one prisoner dead–and one fugitive on the run. They’ll have to negotiate the rugged and remote backcountry through Idaho, Wyoming, and Colorado while tracking a murderer who is desperate to disappear–and will do anything to stop them.

This high-octane game of cat-and-mouse from bestselling and award-winning author Lisa Harris will have your heart pumping as you try to catch a fugitive with nothing to lose.

My Review-

Similar Review: The Traitor’s Pawn by Lisa Harris

This was a super exciting book! I’m not 100% convinced on the reality of the story, but it was a fun read nonetheless.

The two main characters, Madison and Jonas, are transporting two dangerous prisoners across the country when their plane crashes. The two pilots and one of the prisoners dies upon impact (which isn’t described in super high detail, but a little jarring to read first thing in the book). The other prisoner escapes, and the rest of the book follows Madison and  Jonas’ journey to recapture him.

The book was super packed with action: several chase scenes, burglaries, and interviews. The interactions that Madison and Jonas had with “civilians” were really nice and seemed believable, which was nice, since in a lot of suspense books, civilians seem to be just a plot point. There was a character who had autism, and I feel like it was handled appropriately, though I do not have personal experience with autism so I can’t say for sure (he kind of freezes/becomes overwhelmed, and Madison takes him outside and calms him down).

I enjoyed reading the backstory/character development of both the protagonists: they both have pretty rough backstories, and seeing them process their grief is really good and thought provoking. I also really liked the secondary suspense line??? I assume that will be the storyline that carries through the rest of the series (along with the romance, of course) but I definitely didn’t expect it and will be looking forwards to seeing where that leads.

Like the other Lisa Harris book I’ve read, the suspense was definitely not as believable as it could be. There were some technology items that don’t seem like they would actually be used, and there were several aspects that gave me pause. With a little bit of suspension of disbelief, it was an enjoyable read.

Book Review: Point of Danger by Irene Hannon (Triple Threat #1)

About the Book-

Radio talk show host Eve Reilly is used to backlash from her pot-stirring on-air commentary and interviews, but now it seems a disgruntled listener is resorting to more than angry words to express their displeasure. When a suspicious package arrives on her doorstep, Eve turns to law enforcement for help.

Police detective Brent Lange can’t find any evidence to link the string of unsettling incidents that follows, but he’s convinced they’re connected. As the harassment grows more menacing, it becomes clear someone wants Eve’s voice silenced–permanently.

But unless he can track down her foe, fast, the gutsy woman who is willing to take risks for what she believes–and who is swiftly winning his heart–may not survive.

Bestselling author and three-time RITA Award winner Irene Hannon is back with a heart-stopping new series that will have you turning pages well into the night.

My Review-

tw: marital abuse/domestic violence

This was . . . interesting. I’ve been trying out a lot of suspense authors lately, and Irene Hannon is a new one that I hadn’t read yet up until this point. I enjoyed the book: the writing style was clear and it kept me reading all the way until the end, and the suspense was well built and the perpetrator wasn’t obvious until the end, which was good.

The book is narrated from several points of view, some of which aren’t quite understood until the very end, which made it a little confusing to read when I was first starting off. There were also a lot of characters described: maybe 15 or so characters and 6 or 7 points of view, which made it a little tricky to keep track of. Eventually, I figured out what was going on, but not until a fair way into the book.

In addition, when I first started the book, I was a little wary of what was to come, because of the hefty descriptions of the two main characters. Eve, the protagonist, is described by the love interest as a “slender thirtysomething . . . every toned muscle of her five-foot-sixish frame . . . a pair of notable legs, and a moss-green tank top outlined generous curves . . . the typical girl next door, with a hint of exotic glamor,” and the love interest was described by Eve as dressed in “a snug T-shirt that showed off his broad chest and impressive biceps, plus a pair of of broken in jeans that hugged his lean hips and muscular legs,” so needless to say, there is a lot of physical attraction going on. Other than that, there were a lot of mentions of their chemistry, and the two of them started to pursue a romantic relationship fairly early on in the story.

Eve is a political show host known for her conservative views, some of which are shared in the book. Politically, I don’t agree with some of her views, so while that’s a matter of preference, there is that. In addition, there is an alternative perspective that is shown that I agree with more, but then the holders of that worldview were very clearly portrayed negatively, which I wasn’t a huge fan of. I’m particularly concerned about the extent where the moderately left leaning views having a negative impact on the conservative readership of these book. I understand most of the people who read these books/my reviews of them are conservative, so this wouldn’t be an issue for them, but that was my experience, and my concerns make it such that I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I could have.

With all that being said, there were several parts of the book that I did enjoy. I really liked the actual suspense part of the book. The story was engaging and kept me reading, and the ending was very well done. There were also several discussions about marriage, being faithful to one’s spouse, and marital abuse/domestic violence, in the secondary storylines, which I don’t see often in Christian fiction, as generally, the discussion lies more heavily on the getting married part, but much less about what happens once the wedding occurs. Although they didn’t really add to the overall story arc (and were possibly even a little distracting), I really appreciated the discussion of them, especially the one about marital abuse.

Overall, I enjoyed this book! I don’t think I would read it again, or honestly recommend it to many people, but I did like some of the discussions that it contained and the overall suspense plot!
