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!

Fourteen miles east of Peachtree, Alabama, a secret is hidden. The secret's name is Annabel Lee. She doesn't know why her enigmatic uncle has stowed her deep underground in a military style bunker. He's left her with a few German words, a barely controlled guard dog, and a single command: "Don't open that door for anybody, you got it? Not even me." Miles away in Atlanta, private investigator Trudi Coffey is visited by a mysterious older man calling himself Dr.Smith. He's been trailing a man for a decade - a man she met through her ex-partner Samuel Hill - and the trail has led him to her office. The last thing Trudi wants to do is to contact Samuel. But it will take both of them to unravel this mystery - before it's too late. My Thoughts:
This is my very first book to read by Mike Nappa. I must say that I am now a fan. If he writes it, I will read it! Annabel Lee is the first of Nappa's Coffey & Hill Mystery novels. The second installment, The Raven, releases Fall of 2016.
I loved that Nappa tells the story from the different perspectives of Annabel, Trudi and The Mute. Nappa fills readers in on the backstories of the characters with fluidity that does not interrupt or confuse the story line. I could not put this book down! This is one amazingly written novel that is both narrative and character driven. I can't wait to read more from Nappa.
