Always Look Twice (Uncommon Justice #2) by Elizabeth Goddard

Always Look Twice (Uncommon Justice, #2)ABOUT THE BOOK

While photographing the Grand Tetons, Harper Reynolds unwittingly captures a murder on film. But when she loses the camera fleeing the scene, can she and rancher Heath McKade find the camera and solve the murder before the killer makes her his next victim?



MY THOUGHTS.....

Elizabeth Goddard has done it again! The intense action begins on page one and it never lets up!! What starts out as a chance to photograph a black bear in its natural habitat at Jackson Hole, Wyoming, turns into Harper Reynolds witnessing a murder being committed. Suddenly, she herself is the murderer's next target and what follows is a story filled with guns, bombs, and intense danger as Harper and her childhood friend Heath McKade desperately try to discover who the killer is. Nothing seems to go right as they try to stay ahead of this unknown person and there is also the extreme tension that comes from Harper and Heath's personal connection during their struggle to stay alive. Even though there are so many obstacles to overcome, they find themselves reviving a friendship that is twenty years old.

'It was as if an invisible force that spanned time and distance had brought them together again.' (p. 184)

Author Elizabeth Goddard demonstrates once again her ability to increase heart rates and affect emotions and it isn't just from the adventure and danger. It is apparent that Harper and Heath are physically attracted to each other but their past history and the hurts they have both endured seem to be roadblocks to a future together. Their efforts to stay alive and their attempts to forget the past allow Goddard to showcase the importance of faith and prayer in both of their lives.

"God, have you brought me through all of this only to die here and now?" (p. 346)

If you love mystery and adventure and if you enjoy romantic suspense with a faith-filled message, you will want to read Always Look Twice, the second book of the Uncommon Justice series. Elizabeth Goddard proves why she is such a well-loved author!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author and publisher but a positive review was not required. These are my own thoughts.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

100 Extraordinary Stories of Prayer for Courageous Girls: Unforgettable Tales of Women of Faith by Jean Fischer

100 Extraordinary Stories of Prayer for Courageous Girls: Unforgettable Tales of Women of FaithABOUT THE BOOK

Praying girls are world-changers! And this deeply inspiring storybook proves it!

Just for the girls in your life, ages 8 and up, this collection of 100 extraordinary stories of praying women of faith--from the Bible, history, and today--will empower girls to know and understand how praying women have made a difference in the world and how much smaller our faith (and the biblical record) would be without them. Featuring full-page, colorful illustrations alongside the true stories of praying women like Anna, Esther, Hannah, Anne Bradstreet, Shirley Dobson, Lottie Moon, Ida Scudder, Corrie ten Boom, Phillis Wheatley, and dozens more, the stories of these 100 women will encourage and inspire girls to become the praying world-changers God created them to be!

MY THOUGHTS.....

Once again author Jean Fischer has chosen 100 women that she considers extraordinary and this time she focuses on how they all have depended on prayer to help them in their life journeys. Some of the women are from the Bible, others are historical figures, and the rest are well-known names in today's culture but they all share one thing in common: their belief in God and the power of prayer.

Each person that Fischer has chosen has been given two pages: one devoted to her story with an appropriate Bible scripture at the bottom and the other with a colorful illustration. This is a perfect format for the target ages of 8-12 year old girls and the beautiful hard-cover and ribbon bookmark also add to its appeal.

100 Extraordinary Stories of Prayer for Courageous Girls would be a great gift for all of the young girls in your life and I myself plan to use it as an added resource for my Sunday School class!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.
