Dangerous Ground 

Amazon quote:

Can the trauma of her past save someone’s future?

Sierra Jane Hart is a nature guide in Southwest Florida. When she witnesses a random murder in the woods, she flees the scene and evades the perpetrators. She tries to put the incident behind her, but within a couple of days, a man attacks her, and two young girls go missing. Is there a connection? Detective Dan Bentley seems to think so.

Dan Bentley doesn’t trust women. Not after his wife deserted him, leaving him to care for their four-year-old daughter alone. But Sierra’s sincerity and solid faith in the midst of escalating circumstances challenges him to reconsider his thoughts about God and his vow to remain a single father.

In their search to uncover the truth, Dan and Sierra are forced to deal with their pasts. When they discover the secret of Sierra’s childhood, the hunt for the elusive criminals and their captives becomes personal.

Sharee Jones is not looking to get involved with anyone, let alone the man who found her crying her eyes out over her last disastrous relationship. But she’ll need John Jergenson’s help for her Christmas program.

Although John can’t deny his attraction to Sharee, with tragedy in his own life, he’s put any relationship on hold—especially with someone so committed to God.

But then a baby is kidnapped. Sharee blames herself and begins her own investigation. When she disappears, John will do to any length to find her—even go down on his knees.

“Captivating and thought-provoking.”
“The pace is fast and descriptions short and sweet, makes a perfect suspenseful romance.”

During the wedding, their personal connection intensifies when a stalker stirs up haunting memories of her gold-digging ex-fiancé. After Madison mysteriously disappears and the newlyweds receive a ransom note, Luke dives into action to find her. Will he save Madison in time or will she be forced to suffer her worst nightmare… in the depths of a glass bottom boat?

Finding books always seems to be hit-or-miss, feast-or-famine. Today is a feast day.

Counting the seven-book collection, we have eleven new books. Awesome! This is a good day, making up for all the discouraging famine days of the week. Not that I personally need this many with my ever growing TBR pile, I just like having something to offer you, my readers, everyday.

OK, so I don’t need this many but I want this many, it’s not just for you.

Now I’m trying to decide if honesty makes me feel better.

Happy Reading y’all

Lots of mystery and intrigue this time.
