Her Christmas Healing (Hope Crossing, #4) by Mindy Obenhaus

Her Christmas Healing: An Uplifting Inspirational Romance (K-9 Companions, 17)

Christmas is around the corner…

And love might be right next door.

Hope Crossing, Texas, is just what Jillian McKenna needs. Here, she can recover after a terrible attack…and create a home for her baby-to-be. But she also has a complication next door. She once saw a future with veterinarian Gabriel Vaughn—a future that feels impossible now. But with love, faith, a support dog and some Christmas spirit, maybe it’s not too late after all.


I challenge anyone who reads this story to remain dry-eyed and emotionally unaffected! Author Mindy Obenhaus tackles the sensitive subject of a pregnancy resulting from a physical attack and the victim's determination to keep her baby. I admired Jillian's absolute conviction that moving to Hope Crossing would be the best solution for her and her unborn child, and I could totally understand Gabriel's initial confusion and hurt when he realized that Jillian was pregnant. Had his hopes for their future been totally one-sided?

Obenhaus handles this controversial topic with delicacy and sensitivity and the end results are both heartwarming and realistic. She's able to convey the trust and faith that would be necessary in a similar situation and her depiction of Jillian and Gabriel's viewpoints are spot-on! Readers also get to witness the support of the two amazing grandmothers who live in the Texas town that we've come to love. 

I couldn't ask for a more perfect story to read and savor during this special time that celebrates the most unconventional birth of all! I highly recommend Her Christmas Healing to all who enjoy Christian romantic fiction that's infused with faith, hope, healing, and forgiveness!

Deadly Sabotage (Honor Protection Specialists, #3) by Elizabeth Goddard

Deadly Sabotage (Honor Protection Specialists Book 3)

A fatal explosion…hides a lethal conspiracy.

After barely escaping a lab explosion that kills her boss, microbiologist Kinsley Langell discovers that the blast was no accident—someone intentionally set off a bomb. With a target on her back and the police compromised, Kinsley must rely on her ex, protection specialist Brett Honor, to help investigate the crime. But someone won’t stop until she’s silenced—this time permanently. Can Kinsley and Brett uncover the culprit before hired killers finish the job?


One look at the cover of Deadly Sabotage and you know that there's an exciting story waiting inside! An explosion in a lab sends Kinsley Langell on the run and the only person she can turn to is the man who once broke her heart. Is she foolish to place her trust in Brett Honor one more time?

Author Elizabeth Goddard spins another intriguing story in this third book of her Honor Protection Specialists series that's set in the Pacific Northwest. There are twists, turns, and baffling clues, but there's also the chance for Brett to repair his relationship with Kinsley. So, find your favorite reading spot and just imagine that beautiful Mt. Rainier is outside your window. I recommend Deadly Sabotage to all who enjoy adventure, suspense, and second-chance romance!
