All, TBR Pile

My TBR Pile – 4/11/16

Happy Monday, Reader Friends! I pray the weekend was relaxing and refreshing for you. I was able to read some books in my TBR pile. Of course, I’ve picked a new set to read this week. What’s in your pile?

Joy Ohagwu’s The New Rulebook


Ms. Ohagwu has been on the Friday’s Sales blog a number of times. Now, I’m finally able to read one of her books.

The Blurb: “Ruby Masters just saw a woman die. And discovered The New Rulebook—something she knows nothing about. But it knows everything about her—enough to frame her for murder. Ruby calls on the one person she trusts, her best friend, Robert Towers. Robert will find a way out. He always has. But she didn’t count on him falling in love with her—and turning Christian.
His unrelenting grip on a newfound faith irritates Ruby—until she finds herself captured behind enemy lines, helpless, alone, and with no way out.
When all human effort fails, what she gets at the end, is the one thing she didn’t see coming, completely changing her life and Robert’s.

The New Rulebook, is taut with suspense and action, then dipped in romance.”

Purchase: Amazon (Psst: this might be free on Kindle!)

Creston Mapes’ Fear Has a Name


This will be my first read by Mr. Mapes and I’m looking forward to it.

The Blurb: How Far Would He Go To Keep Them Safe?

It was more than a break-in. More than a stalking. It was personal. When a stalker targets his family, journalist Jack Crittendon must uncover who the person is and what his motives are—if he is to protect the ones he loves. It will lead Crittendon into a world of behind-closed-door secrets and faith gone awry, as does his investigation of a missing pastor, whose apparent suicide is more than it appears. Each move Crittendon makes weaves him tighter and tighter into a web of lies, greed, hypocrisy, sin, and danger. He believed he’d never give in to fear. But that was before. And holding on to his faith won’t be easy. Nor will keeping his family safe, and ending the terror. Because that might require him to step over lines he never dared to cross.“

Brenda S. Anderson’s Chain of Mercy


This will be my first read of Ms. Anderson’s. As always, I look forward to adding new authors to my list.

The Blurb: They forgave him for the accident that killed their son, but he will never forgive himself.
Manhattan businessman Richard Brooks was at the top of the world, drunk with
Success … Wealth … Women …
And he proudly lived that prodigal lifestyle.
Until one disastrous evening, when that world came crashing down.
Richard flees to Minneapolis where he repairs ancient boilers instead of solving corporate problems, and he s determined to live the solitary life he now deserves …
Chained to his guilt. Blending in with the gray. No luxuries in sight. But Executive Sheila Peterson has other plans for the handsome custodian. She s had it with serious relationships, and Richard appears to be the perfect match for the no-strings-attached romance she desires. Instead, she finds a man who is complex, brilliant, and shrouding a tormented past.
In her quest to uncover the secrets holding Richard captive, will her own secrets remain buried?

Rick Barry’s The Methuselah Project


Rick Barry is another new-to-me author. I’ve heard great things about his novel so I look forward to reading it.

The Blurb: Nazi scientists started many experiments. One never ended.

Roger Greene is a war hero. Raised in an orphanage, the only birthright he knows is the feeling that he was born to fly. Flying against the Axis Powers in World War II is everything he always dreamed–until the day he’s shot down and lands in the hands of the enemy.

When Allied bombs destroy both his prison and the mad genius experimenting on POWs, Roger survives. Within hours, his wounds miraculously heal, thanks to those experiments. The Methuselah Project is a success–but this ace is still not free. Seventy years later, Roger hasn’t aged a day, but he has nearly gone insane. This isn’t Captain America–just a lousy existence only made passable by a newfound faith. The Bible provides the only reliable anchor for Roger’s sanity and his soul. When he finally escapes, there’s no angelic promise or personal prophecy of deliverance, just confusion. It’s 2015–and the world has become an unrecognizable place.

Katherine Mueller–crack shot, genius, and real Southern Belle–offers to help him find his way home. Can he convince her of the truth of his crazy story? Can he continue to trust her when he finds out she works for the very organization he’s trying to flee?

Thrown right into pulse-pounding action from the first page, readers will find themselves transported back in time to a believable, full-colored past, and then catapulted into the present once more. The historical back-and-forth adds a constantly moving element of suspense to keep readers on the edge of their seats.“
