Glad to have you visit my little corner of the blog world! I'm a minister's wife and stay-at-home mommy.
Here you will find LOTS of book reviews, because I LOVE to read. You'll also get a little peak into our family life as we seek to raise the three gifts from the Lord with which we have been richly blessed and a little of the things I'm learning as I daily surrender to the Lord in complete trust. This life isn't always easy, but it is an adventure like no other. At the end of each day, I rest in the faithfulness of Almighty God.
Praying you are blessed by your visit with me!

They both wanted quieter, safer lives. But crime never sleeps...and killers keep killing. After years as a Chicago homicide detective, Lisa Grant is ready for the kinder, gentler life of a small-town police chief. But the discovery of a human skeleton by a construction crew at the edge of town taxes department resources. Enter ex-Navy SEAL Mac McGregor, the detective sent by the county to assist on the case. As they work to solve the mystery behind the unmarked grave, danger begins to shadow them. Someone doesn't want this dead person telling any tales - and will stop at nothing to make certain a life-shattering secret stays buried. My Thoughts:
The Library Journal has named Hannon as the "queen of inspirational romantic suspense" and I would have to whole heartedly agree! Hannon has hit the ground running with her first installment in her new series: Men of Valor. Buried Secrets grabbed on to me from the first page of the prologue and didn't let go until I had turned the last page. Hannon is a master at weaving raw emotion and genuine characters into a fast-paced story that shines a light on the transformative power of faith. In Burried Secrets, the reader gets a gut wrenching view of the depth of damage greed does to the human heart. I really liked getting to know Mac McGregor and his brothers. While this book featured Mac, I get the feeling that future books will introduce us a bit more to his siblings. I really appreciate a strong, faith-filled male character in Hannon's books. I think this picture of manhood is needed in today's culture. Hannon's books are keeper shelf material!
