What makes this book a modern-day parable? The book tells a story about people who believe in Jesus’s Gospel of love interacting with each other.

The residents of Triville are bound together by their Christian faith. They’re certainly not perfect. Actually, they’re a bit gossipy and quirky, but they believe in Jesus’s teaching.

They’re much like the residents in the small town at the foothills of the N.C. Mountains where I grew up. They have acquaintances, close friends, people they tolerate, and those they keep at a distance. However, when a crisis strikes prayers go up and casseroles go out no matter how close or distant the person in need.

In the words of Lloyd Rock, the local mechanic in Hair Calamities and Hot Cash, “…we take care of each other…”

The Way of The Brave by Susan May Warren

Book Review

The Way of the Brave (Global Search and Rescue Book #1)

I was excited to read The Way of the Brave by Susan May Warren but… this book was not for me.

The story was good. The characters interesting.  Lots of tension. Great romance. The writing was even better!  So, why wasn’t this book a favorite for me?

Both characters are mountain climbers and the story revolves around mountain climbing. Susan May Warren does an amazing job of creating word pictures that got me right up on that mountain with them. And that’s the problem. I’m not an outdoorsy-type person. I have absolutely no interest in mountain climbing, whether it be on a mountain or in my armchair reading.  So unfortunately, this wasn’t a book that I particularly enjoyed but… if you’re more adventurous than me, it might be just the book you’re looking for. And it won’t stop me from reading another Susan May Warren book–she’s an awesome writer.

Review by Lillian Duncan

I received a  copy o f this book by the publisher for an unbiased review.

Collateral Damage by Lynette Eason

Collateral Damage (Danger Never Sleeps Book #1)

I jumped at the chance to review COLLATERAL DAMAGE by Lynette Eason because she always does a great job. And Collateral Damage is no exception. She manages to weave romance and suspense with a great plot and wonderful characters.

In Collateral Damage, the hero and the heroine are truly heroes. Both have spent time on the battlefield in Afghanistan. Now that they’re back in the states, life should be safer. Not true in this story. As I read this story, I wondered if Ms. Eason had spent time on the battlefield herself. I don’t know the answer but if the answer’s no, then my respect for her writing has grown by leaps and bounds. With Collateral Damage, she’s brought the grit of war along with the heroes who fight every day for the principles that keep America strong. Can you tell that I loved this book?

This is a definite YES for me.

I was given this book by the publisher for an unbiased review.

Allen Steadham–Interview of the Day

Allen Steadham created comic books and webcomics before he started writing novels. He has been married to his wife, Angel, since 1995 and they have two sons and a daughter. When not writing stories, Allen and his wife are singers, songwriters and musicians. They have been in a Christian band together since 1997. They live in Central Texas. You can learn more about Allen at https://allensteadham.com or at https://goodreads.com/allensteadham.

How or why did you become a writer?

I started making my own superhero comic books at the age of ten. I continued that into adulthood, making webcomics and eventually novels.

Why do you write Christian Fiction?

After I became a Christian in January 1996, my writing focus changed. I was married by then and my wife co-wrote a Christian webcomic together (I did the art) called “Due East.” By 2007, we put that comic online and it won two awards in 2008 from The Duck Webcomics: “Best Spiritual Comic” and “Most Profound Comic.”

I had health issues for a number of years, but once I recovered, I felt compelled to enter National Novel Writing Month (Nanowrimo) in November 2013. However, before I began, I prayed and handed over all of my creativity to the Lord and asked Him to help me write a 50,000-word Christian novel. God blessed me to write a 56,000-word first draft within three weeks. That first draft eventually became my debut novel, Mindfire, which is a superhero thriller with themes of redemption, forgiveness, and second chances. It also featured many characters and story elements from my earliest comic books, though adapted for the present day and a Christian story.

I write Christian fiction because that is where my inspiration comes from: God and His Son, Jesus Christ, through the Holy Spirit. I want to reach people for Him and show them the hope and salvation only He can offer.

Tell us something interesting about yourself.

I like to take sky pictures (sunrises/sunsets/clouds/weather) and post them on Instagram.

Thanks Allen, for sharing about yourself and your writing.

 

Match Made in Heaven by Julie Arduini

GIVEAWAY!

Match Made in Heaven giveaway: One US winner can choose eBook or print version. If international winner, reader receives eBook. Leave a comment to be entered for the giveaway.

Match Made in Heaven blurb:

Beth Prescott wants to make a difference with the senior citizens she serves as a volunteer coordinator, but their matchmaking efforts leave her guarded. She’s experienced too much pain to make that leap again.

Dean Kellerman returns to the Finger Lakes area to help his grandfather and heal his own broken heart. He’s recommitted his life to Christ, and doesn’t want any distractions.

When his grandfather needs assistance with a senior program, it places Dean right in Beth’s path. Can these two surrender their pasts to Christ and have faith in each other and their future?

What makes Match Made In Heaven a modern day parable?

Match Made in Heaven is a modern-day parable because it’s not afraid to address issues readers might not otherwise read and learn about. It’s the first Christian romance I wrote and I revised it in 2019 to include a diagnosis that is something our family knows well. Beth doesn’t trust God because with her congenital hypothyroidism, she’s had to work twice as hard all her life. She’s faced bullying and verbal abuse. Through Christian romance readers can learn from Beth’s journey that God’s faithful and loves us more than we can ever imagine.

Julie Arduini  loves to encourage readers to find freedom in Christ by surrendering the good, the bad, and —maybe one day—the chocolate. She’s the author of the contemporary romance series SURRENDERING TIME, (Entrusted, Entangled, Engaged,) as well as the stand-alone novellas, MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN and RESTORING CHRISTMAS. She also shares her story in the infertility devotional, A WALK IN THE VALLEY. Her other latest release, YOU’RE AMAZING, is a book for girls ages 10-100, written with her teenaged daughter, Hannah, and is book 2 in their SURRENDERING STINKIN’ THINKIN’ series. She blogs every other Wednesday for Christians Read, as well as monthly with Inspy Romance. She resides in Ohio with her husband and two children.
