Holiday Heist Witness

Dr. Leah Wilson just needed to make a quick stop at the bank one week before Christmas, but when robbers enter the building with guns, Leah’s quick errand turns into a holiday horror. She has to keep her cool and make it out alive—until she realizes she knows exactly who one of the robbers is… 

FBI agent Hoyt Vincent ended his relationship with Leah to protect her from the dangers of his job. He arrives at the bank with just enough time to save her life—and give the criminals a chance to escape. Only now Leah is in serious danger. And with the armed bank robbers on the loose at Christmastime, it’s just a matter of time before they decide to silence her…


Amicalola Falls State Park

Last week, Mountain Man asked me if I’d like to take off for a couple of days and go to the Smoky Mountains. He knows how much I love the mountains, and I was touched by his sudden desire for spontaneity. However, I’m on book deadline. (If you’ve read my first three books, you may be happy to know Ryan’s story is due to my editor in a few short weeks. 💕)

As tempted as I was to load up the SUV and go, sometimes adulting means knowing when you really can’t be off galavanting because you need to stay home and work. However, I was torn, because Mountain Man was trying to be sweet and do something thoughtful.So, we compromised. Instead of driving four hours to Gatlinburg, we drove two-and-a-half hours to Dahlonega, Georgia.

Dahlonega is a small college town that looks like it’s straight out of a Hallmark movie. It’s such a fun place to visit. Added bonus, our niece is a freshman at UNG so we were able to visit her for a couple of hours and treat her to dinner. The next day we went to Amicalola Falls State Park and hiked 2.1 miles (round trip) and walked up 604 stair steps to the top of the falls. It was so beautiful!

After we finished our hike, we went to an apple orchard and spent time in the town of Ellijay. Then, on the way home, we stopped to visit family who live in the area. All-in-all it was a nice, quick getaway.

Sabotaged Mission by Tina Radcliffe

My writing friend and mentor Tina Radcliffe has a Love Inspired Suspense releasing July 26, 2022, and you, my dear readers, have an opportunity to win an advanced copy!

Tina is a multi-published author with Love Inspired, but this is her very first Love Inspired Suspense novel. And I am sure it will not be her last time writing suspense. This book is so good!! It’s definitely a hard read to put down, so make sure you have plenty of time when you sit down to read it. And if you happen to take it to the beach with you, make sure to apply plenty of sunscreen! You will get so wrapped up in this story that you’ll forget to go inside or reapply the sunscreen. 😉

Framed and on the run…

With nowhere left to hide

When a failed mission leaves CIA operative MacKenzie “Mac” Sharp injured and her partner presumed dead, going off-grid is the only way to survive. But her old flame, CIA officer Gabe Denton, has tracked her down and led a well-connected enemy right to her door. Now with someone trying to frame and kill her, working with Gabe is the only way to clear her name…and stay alive.

Don’t you love that cover!?! I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely drawn to books by their cover. And this cover does an excellent job of portraying the suspense inside the pages.

Tina is going to giveaway one copy of Sabotaged Mission to one of my readers. To enter to win: Leave a comment, then click here to be redirected to the Rafflecopter. Contest closes Friday at 12:00 a.m.
