Always Watching by Lynette Eason

Always Watching by Lynette EasonThe bodyguards of Elite Guardians Agency have more than just skill and prowess in common–they’re also all women. When it becomes clear that popular psychiatrist and radio personality Wade Savage has a stalker, his father secretly hires Elite Guardians in order to protect his son.

But when Wade’s bodyguard is attacked and nearly killed, agency owner Olivia Edwards must step in and fill the gap. Olivia’s skills are about to be tested to the limit as Wade’s stalker moves from leaving innocent gifts at his door to threatening those closest to him. Olivia has the feeling that she’s next on the list. And to complicate things even further, she realizes that her heart may be in as much danger as her client.

Bestselling author and fan favorite Lynette Eason drops readers right into the action in this fast-paced new series with a unique twist. Readers will love these strong female characters who put it all on the line to save lives.


Lynette Eason always gives her best. And once again, it was GREAT! She is truly a talented writer with an imagination and the creativity to drag us all deep into her stories, and keep us there!

Olivia is tasked with the job of keeping Wade, psychiatrist and radio personality, and his daughter safe from an unkwown stalker. This stalker has taken it to new heights by taking out Wade’s first body guard. She is now laying in a hospital fighting for her life. Can Olivia and her team keep them safe? Or will they die trying?

Wade is faced with being stalked, nearly killed a few times and trying to help his daughter not go into anxiety attacks. Bombs, gifts, candy, this stalker will stop at nothing to get what she wants. Who is she? What does she want? You will be shocked when you find out the truth, I know I was.

I know I’m being kind of vague but I’m trying not to give you too much. Always Watching is a true page turner. On every page there are twists and turns. And believe me, you will think you know who this person is a hundred times but you will be wrong! Unless of course you are one of those weird people that skip to the last chapter before reading the book! (Sorry if you are one of those people, I just cant make myself do that!)

Anyway, you will love this book, the author and the rest of this series. If you haven’t read anything by Lynette Eason yet, here is your chance! You wont regret it!

Brush of Wings by Karen Kingsbury

Brush of WIngs by Karen KingsburyDespite needing a heart transplant and against the advice of her doctor, Mary Catherine moves to Uganda to work at a new orphanage. Whatever time she has left, Mary Catherine wants to spend it helping children—especially since there will be no children of her own. The only problem is Major League Baseball player Marcus Dillinger, the man she never meant to fall in love with. Neither Marcus nor Mary Catherine’s other friends—Tyler Ames and Sami Dawson—know just how serious her heart condition is.

Still, Marcus is sure in the depths of his soul that something isn’t right. Ultimately his correspondence with Mary Catherine leads him on a desperate life-or-death mission to rescue her and get her to a US hospital before time runs out. Meanwhile, Sami and Tyler struggle with issues of their own. In a season when Tyler plans to ask Sami to marry him, the very core of their relationship is in jeopardy.

The team of angels walking is busier than ever in this epic battle between life and death. Brush of Wings is a poignant tale of love, sacrifice, and the power of faith.


I’m so sad to see this series end. I have come to love Mary Catherine, Marcus, Sami and Tyler. Even Lexi has my heart. But they are not the main characters here, God is! You can feel him in every book written by Karen Kingsbury but Brush of Wings took it a lot deeper.

Mary Catherine is about to have her dreams come true, living in Africa for six months. She only has one problem, her heart. It is getting worse and she needs a transplant ASAP. She is in love with Marcus, but refuses to admit it. He loves her too, and has no problem saying so. Marcus is doing everything he can to change her mind, but she is dead set on not being ‘marriage material.’

Sami is continuing on with the youth center. They have added a counseling night for the teen girls in the neighborhood. A lot of people are showing up, and opening up. Everyone except Lext. Tyler is busy at training camp and can’t get home to see Sami very often. But their relationship is going strong and about to take a huge step.

Now, back to Lexi. She is back in the gang. Dating the leader, and paying the price for it. He is angry all the time, and really ruff with her. When she tells him some huge news he flips, and she knows she has to get out.

Lexi and Sami become close while Mary Catherine is away. When she finally comes back home there are a lot of surprises to go around. Brush of Wings makes so many dreams come true for these characters while pulling them through life changing seasons. You will cry, laugh, then cry some more. But trust me, its totally worth it!

You should all know how I feel about Karen Kingsbury by now, if not you will after this. She is my ALL-TIME FAVORITE author! I have read everything by her (except the few suspense novels released before she started writing Christian) and have loved everything! If you haven’t read any of her books yet, start with this series if you want only a few books. If you like longer series go for The Baxter’s. There are like 22 of those, and with out a doubt worth all the time spent reading 🙂

Come back Tuesday (also the release date) for my review of Brush of Wings.

Thin Ice by Irene Hannon

Thin Ice by Irene HannonAfter losing her parents in a car accident and her sister to a house fire, Christy Reed has been mired in grief. Life is finally starting to feel normal again when an envelope arrives in the mail–addressed in her sister’s handwriting. And the note inside claims she is still alive.

FBI Special Agent Lance McGregor, a former Delta Force operator, is assigned to reopen the case, but he’s coming up with more questions than answers. If Ginny Reed is still alive–who is the woman buried in her grave? Where is Ginny? And is Christy a pawn in a twisted cat-and-mouse game–or the target of a sinister plot? As he digs deeper, one thing becomes clear: whoever is behind the bizarre ruse has a deadly agenda.

Bestselling author and two-time Christy Award finalist Irene Hannon warms readers’ hearts as they root for a romance between Lance and Christy, but she pulls out all the stops as this high-stakes thriller chills to the bone in a race to the finish.


Irene Hannon never disappoints. I fell completely in love with these characters. Through out this whole book you are draining all your emotions out. You don’t know if you want to  be sad and cry like a baby or smile so much your face starts to hurt.

Christy is a former figure skater, now coaching at a local ice rink. She has in the last six months lost her parents in a car wreck and her only sister in a house fire. Or so she thought. She is forced to hope, and reach for an outcome that is highly unlikely. All the while trying to figure out who she could have possibly hurt enough for them to want revenge and her to be miserable.

Lance is just starting a new career in the FBI, unused to following protocol and unsure how to really go about doing things. His first case ends up being a phone call about someone possible being kidnapped. After she had died in the fire that destroyed her home. And that’s how Lance and Christy meet.

During this investigation, or really waiting around, they form a friendship that is unlike any either have ever had before. They grow close and share things that they have never shared with anyone else. Together they grow in their personal lives, taking away anger and grief while trying to keep the relationship simply business.

I wont lie, when I first started reading Thin Ice I was not really into it. I mean c’mon, if you read it you will totally understand. I didn’t want to read about a poor woman that was all alone and most likely depressed more than anyone knew. But I’m glad I read it because that first impression was COMPLETLEY wrong. I fell in love with Christy and Lance, and a few of the other characters as well. I had gotten so into it that I cried when it was over, but no worries… there’s still one brother left 🙂

So, Irene Hannon has a GREAT imagination, and a way with words. Everything else that I have read by her has been really good, so I’m looking forward to continuing this series. I already know its going to be good, but we shall see how late I stay up 😉
