Inescapable

About

Lizzie Engel is used to running away. At eighteen, she left her Mennonite hometown, Kingdom, Kansas, with plans never to return.

But five years later, the new life she built is falling apart. Lizzie knows she’s being followed, and she’s certain the same mysterious stranger is behind the threatening letters she’s received. Realizing she’ll have to run again, the only escape Lizzie can manage is a return to the last place she wants to go.

Once she arrives in Kingdom, Lizzie is confident she’ll be safe until she comes up with a new plan. In reacquainting herself with the town and its people–especially her old friend, Noah Housler–she wonders if she judged her hometown and her Mennonite faith too harshly. However, just as she begins to come to terms with her roots, Lizzie is horrified to discover the danger she ran from is closer than ever.

No longer sure who to trust and fearful for her life and the lives of those around her, Lizzie finds she has only one place left to run–to the Father whose love is inescapable.

My Review

I really enjoyed everything about this book.  It is another one that grab me right from the start and I couldn’t put the book down until I finished it.  I feel in love with the main character and I loved seeing things through her eyes.  When I read books I imagine I am there with them and I had no problems feeling like I was right there with her.  I loved figuring out what was going on with her.  The author does a great job of giving plenty of details but not giving away who does it.   I really can’t wait to read more from her and read the other books in the series when they are released.

I Am

This week for the Writers Workshop I am using this generator and writing an I Am poem.  I am not good at writing poetry but since this one is easier to do because all I had to do was fill in the blanks I figured I would give it shot.

I am creative & focused
I wonder what babies dream about
I hear a fly flying around
I see leaves blowing in the wind
I want to be happy
I am creative & focused

I pretend that people don’t get me down
I feel my heart beat
I touch soft cat fur
I worry about my job
I cry when I get let down
I am creative & focused

I understand my life so far
I say the truth
I dream about my friends
I try to be happy and positive
I hope for happiness
I am creative & focused

Submerged

About

A sabotaged plane. Two dead deep-water divers.
Yancey, Alaska was a quiet town . . . until the truth of what was hidden in the depths off the coast began to appear.
Bailey Craig vowed never to set foot in Yancey again. She has a past, and a reputation–and Yancey’s a small town. She’s returned to bury a loved one killed in the plane crash and is determined not to stay even an hour more than necessary. But then dark evidence emerges and Bailey’s own expertise becomes invaluable for the case. Cole McKenna can handle the deep-sea dives and helping the police recover evidence. He can even handle the fact that a murderer
has settled in his town and doesn’t appear to be moving on. But dealing with the reality of Bailey’s reappearance is a tougher challenge.  She broke his heart, but she is not the same girl who left Yancey. He let her down, but he’s not the same guy she left behind. Can they move beyond the hurts of their pasts and find a future together?

My Review

I loved everything about this book.  The minute I started the book I couldn’t put it down and read it all in one  day.  The characters instantly came alive to me.  The author did a great job of grabbing my attention right away and held it through out the entire book.  They made all the places and characters come alive.  It had great suspense and kept me on the edge of my seat until it was over.
