James R. Hannibal: Elysium Tide

 By Kelly Bridgewater

"When the Royal London Hospital orders a top neurosurgeon and workaholic to take a week off in Maui, he stumbles upon a murder and becomes obsessed with finding the killer. His efforts confound and irritate local detective Lisa Kealoha, but once they join forces, they uncover a destructive plot that runs far deeper than either of them could have imagined"


My Thoughts:

Elysium Tide by James R. Hannibal features a mystery on the Hawaiian islands with a doctor and a detective. With the doctor from London, it was definitely a unique take to a character's background.  The story starts in an operating room, not with a dead body, which had a unique twist to starting a mystery novel. As soon as the story moves to Hawaii from London, the suspense element jumped into full force. A dead body or two. Mishaps. Car chases. Among other things that kept the mystery element moving through the story. While I do enjoy these type of things in the my suspense stories, I wanted more. Plenty of dry moments where nothing was happening. A lot of getting to know one another. I felt like the plot was boring and needed more action. Really did not capture my attention the way I like a mystery novel to do. Even with this element to the plot, a big transformation moment occurs to Peter, the doctor, and those are the moments I enjoy seeing in novels. Overall, Elysium Tide by James R. Hannibal was an okay mystery, but it really did not have enough action for me. I wanted more to the plot.

Sami A. Abrams: Impending Strike

 By Kelly Bridgewater

He loves her, but he can’t have her…

Elite Guardian Charlie Lee knows that there is no future with the woman he loves—fellow Guardian Lizzie Tremaine. And he gets it. Lizzie’s a single mom focused on protecting her daughter, and Charlie’s got his own baggage anyway. It’s easier, and safer, to keep things the way they are.

Then, the unthinkable happens. While Charlie is undercover, he’s seriously injured…and his memory of the past four years is gone. But maybe it’s the fresh start he didn’t know he longed for.

And now he’s getting too close…

Lizzie cares for Charlie, but she’s lost all the men she’s ever loved and can’t risk her heart again. Still, she’s determined to protect Charlie, and help him discover who attacked him—and why.

But in the process, she begins to discover an unburdened, impossible-to-resist version of the man she knows. And—along with the details of his attack—Charlie seems to have forgotten their reasons for keeping things platonic. Suddenly, all of their self-imposed rules are gone, and Lizzie needs things to get back to normal, stat.

It’s her heart…or his life.

Problem is, the closer Charlie gets to uncovering his memories, the closer he gets to trouble. What will protecting Charlie cost Lizzie?

Another edge-of-your-seat Elite Guardian thriller!

My Thoughts:

Impending Strike by Lynette Eason and Sami A. Abrams continues the Eason’s Elite Guardian series. In true Eason fashion, Abrams has crafted a novel that has plenty of twists and turns and surprise moments for the heroine and hero, which I LOVE in my suspense novels. I need plenty of action and moments where I believe the characters are going to have something bad happen to them. Being a romantic suspense novel, there is going to be some romance between the main character of Lizzie and Charlie. The romance does take a roller coaster ride through their budding emotions. Being one of the first novels that Abrams has written, this was a fabulous story to fit into the romantic suspense genre. One of my favorite aspects of a suspense novel is the background or what the characters bring to the table when the story starts. Abram does a wonderful job at crafting believable backgrounds for the characters and uses those hurts and flaws to deepen her characters. Abrams definitely had a fabulous mentor through Lynette Eason and Sunrise Publishing. Overall, Impending Strike by Sami A. Abrams is a suspenseful novel worthy of the challenge of the genre with characters with depth and an overarching love story willing to keep any romantic suspense fan happy.

Karen Witemeyer: In Honor's Defense

 By Kelly Bridgewater

About the Book

Book: In Honor’s Defense

Author: Karen Witemeyer

Genre: Historical Romance

Release date: June 7, 2022

He's Faced Countless Perils on the Battlefield, but Nothing so Dangerous as Falling in Love.

Luke Davenport has been fighting all his life--for respect, for country, and for those unable to fight for themselves. But now that his Horsemen brothers are domesticated, he's left alone to battle the wildness within. When an opportunity arises to take a job on his own, tracking down a group of rustlers, he jumps at the chance.

Damaris Baxter has mastered the art of invisibility. Plain and quiet, she hides in books and needlework, content to be overlooked. Until her brother dies suddenly, leaving her custody of her nephew. She moves to Texas to care for Nathaniel, determined to create the family for herself that she never thought she'd have and to give him the family he desperately needs.

When Nate finds himself knee-deep in trouble, Luke's attempt to protect him leaves Damaris feeling indebted to the Horseman. But suspicions grow regarding the mysterious death of Damaris's brother. And the more questions they ask, the more danger appears, threatening the family Luke may be unable to live without.


My Thoughts:

In Honor’s Defense by Karen Witemeyer carried the tradition of the Hanger's Horsemen. Personally, I have thoroughly enjoyed these stories of strong heroes who changed their wild ways into protective and loving husbands. In this story, readers are told the story of Luke, the protector, who uses his strong protective skills to help Damaris and her nephew, Nate as they struggle to live with each other and depend on each other. The plot has some suspense, which was nicely done. I really enjoyed trying to see who was creating troubles on the Grimes land. I love seeing the transformation of Luke throughout the story. I loved learning about his backstory, and how it defined the man that readers are introduced to at the beginning of the story. As for the romance, it was deeply engrained in the plot of the story. Both heroine and hero fell pretty quickly but brought out the best in each other. Just like a good romance should do. The romance was not too gushy but respectable in nature. The writing was serious, yet suspenseful at the same time. Overall, In Honor’s Defense by Karen Witemeyer is a delightful story. Even though I do not gravitate toward western stories, Witemeyer is a master of crafting stories that dig at the heart of the issue in her character’s transformation journey. Highly recommend this series.

More from Karen

Meet Luke and Damaris

As the Hanger’s Horsemen series comes to a close, I’m thrilled to introduce you to Luke Davenport and Damaris Baxter. If you haven’t read the other books in this series, don’t worry. This one stands on its own just fine.


Luke Davenport is a former cavalry officer who is part of an elite squad of men known as Hanger’s Horsemen. Haunted by the horrors of war, this group of Texas legends has spent the last few years fighting for justice on behalf of those who cannot fight for themselves. Luke is Matthew Hanger’s right-hand man, but when Matt retires the Horsemen in favor of a more settled life with his new wife, Luke is left feeling adrift. So when a solo job comes his way to track down rustled cattle, he jumps at the opportunity.

Known for his strength, his size, and his skill with his fists, I modeled Luke after a pair of football players, Howie Long and JJ Watt. He’s a man of action with a bit of wildness inside, yet his ability to memorize Scripture earned him the nickname Preach. He’s a godly man with scars, seeking to find his place as his Horsemen brothers move on to new phases of life.


Damaris Baxter has been invisible her entire life. Plain of face and quiet of manner, she it’s the epitome of unremarkable. While she dares heroic feats and grand adventures between the covers of her favorite books, life outside the pages consists of little more than needlework and dull conversation with her great aunt. Until her brother dies under suspicious circumstances and she travels to Texas to care for her nephew. Determined that the “Texas Damaris” will be bolder and braver than her former self, she sets out to win the heart of a grieving boy and ends up mixed up in a dangerous murder plot with a handsome cowboy who actually sees her.

When creating Damaris’s character, I gave her two of my favorite hobbies—reading and cross-stitching. She shares other similarities with me as well. She’s a quiet person who dislikes making waves, but when family needs her, there’s nothing she won’t do to help. Her questionable baking skills might also have found some inspiration in my personal experience. Just ask my husband about my famous transparent chocolate chip cookies. 

Opposites Attract?

I love to explore what brings people together, and while it’s a common idea that opposites attract, I’ve always believed that there must be some core commonalities beneath the differences to bind a couple together for a lifetime. So, while Luke and Damaris seem to be stark opposites—he an adventure-seeking soldier used to solving problems with guns and fists; she a quiet, proper lady used to escaping problems with books and needlework—they actually have several core commonalities. They both crave belonging and family, they both value God’s Word, and they both have a strong, protective instinct toward those they care about. This core common ground is what serves as the foundation for their relationship.

Now that you’ve been introduced to Luke and Damaris, I hope you’ll join them on the adventure that leads them to love.

Writing is Tough

 By Kelly Bridgewater

I have a hard time thinking of plot ideas and composing stories in the summer.

I am sure, if I was on contract, I would figure out how to get the words on the page.

Since that is not happening, I have a hard time in the summer.

Maybe it is too hot.

Maybe it is the endless overtaking of the weeds, crawling all over my pretty flowers and bushes that I worked numerous hours on all spring.

Maybe it is the grass that needs cut every week.

Maybe it is the overwhelming work at my job since we work on New Student Orientation for the freshman students during the summer. That takes tons of time.

I have more of the desire to write in the fall and winter when the weather cools off. Leaves sparkle in their fall colors. Weeds start to die off. The yard starts to go dormant, so I do not have to mow every week.

Life may be crazier with kids going to school, but I find more time and inspiration to write. More me time.

Summers are crazier in my book.

How about you? Is summer crazy or fall? What season do you find yourself writing more?

Lynn Austin: Long Way Home

 By Kelly Bridgewater

In this gripping portrait of war and its aftermath from bestselling author Lynn Austin, a young woman searches for the truth her childhood friend won’t discuss after returning from World War II, revealing a story of courage, friendship, and faith.

Peggy Serrano couldn’t wait for her best friend to come home from the war. But the Jimmy Barnett who returns is much different from the Jimmy who left, changed so drastically by his experience as a medic in Europe that he can barely function. When he attempts the unthinkable, his parents check him into the VA hospital. Peggy determines to help the Barnetts unravel what might have happened to send their son over the edge. She starts by contacting Jimmy’s war buddies, trying to identify the mysterious woman in the photo they find in Jimmy’s belongings.

Seven years earlier, sensing the rising tide against her people, Gisela Wolff and her family flee Germany aboard the passenger ship St. Louis, bound for Havana, Cuba. Gisela meets Sam Shapiro on board and the two fall quickly in love. But the ship is denied safe harbor and sent back to Europe. Thus begins Gisela’s perilous journey of exile and survival, made possible only by the kindness and courage of a series of strangers she meets along the way, including one man who will change the course of her life.


My Thoughts:

Long Way Home by Lynn Austin is a historical look into PTSD after World War II. From the first pages, I was captured at the storyline. The story follows two characters chronological through World War II as they struggled to survive and one character as she tries to bring her friend out of PTSD. The characters are crafted with deep hurting and deep pain for the struggles through World War II. It was unique and different to see how the war affected the Jews as they tried to escape. I have never heard of the ship that actually came to Havana and was told to return to Europe with all its Jewish passengers. Why American and South America would not take these passengers makes me scratch my head in wonder. There is romance, but nothing really overarching the hurt on the pages. The story does have a young love from couple, but they try to stay together through all the hurt and damage to their daily lives. I'm still amazed by how much research goes into a World War II novel and what makes it shine on the pages as if I am struggling alongside the characters as they try to survive the horrors done to them by the Nazi's. Austin does a fabulous job at digging deep into their fear as the Nazi's try to take over. Overall, Long Way Home is a unique look at PTSD before it was actually called that. I enjoyed this novel and want to add it to my forever shelf.

I received a complimentary copy of Long Way Home by Lynn Austin from Tyndale Publishing, but the opinions stated are all my own.

Nancy Mehl: Free Fall

 By Kelly Bridgewater

Someone has been abducting women with long dark hair across Virginia. When the FBI is called in to help, Alex Donovan, a behavioral analyst, is tasked with putting together a profile. She's aided by her friend and colleague Logan Hart, but he has been acting strangely and won't say why. When the kidnapper demands that Alex meet him at an abandoned amusement park in exchange for the location of all his captives, she takes the bait. But the meeting proves to be a trap, and the building she's in explodes.


Finding herself imprisoned with several other women, Alex works to think one step ahead of her captor. But the more Logan and the BAU learn about the kidnapper, the more they fear Alex may not make it out alive this time.


My Thoughts:

Free Fall by Nancy Mehl is a captivating story of the carnival craziness that fears into a huge chunk of the majorities’ psyche. The plot was well-written. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading about the Behavioral Analysis unit in this series. I hope that Mehl crafts more stories along these two series that have spoken to my suspense loving mind. The plot features more of the romance between Alex and Logan. While the romance has been building since the first novel, Night Fall, it finally comes to reality in this book, but not without its struggles. Once again, Alex is captured by the bad guy and pushed to the edge. She must rely on her training and skills to help save a number of the women who have been captured before her. One of my favorite aspects of a serial killer is the ability to empathize with the killer. I NEED to be able to completely agree and understand their reasoning for doing what they do. Mehl does a wonderful job in the opening chapter with showing why the killer captures these women and does what he does. Overall, Free Fall by Nancy Mehl is a suspenseful novel that dives into the psyche of a killer who wants revenge. Nicely managed and delivered. If anyone is a fan of suspense novels and the television series Criminal Minds, then I recommend picking up this series. Less visual than the television series. Cleaner but with the same result.

Melanie Dickerson: Veil of Winter

 By Kelly Bridgewater 

She’s hounded from every side by treacherous elements and foes, but her greatest enemy lies within.

In the mountains near France, the medieval Princess Elyse is being forced to marry, thus forming an alliance that will enrich her father but enslave her kingdom. Instead, she chooses to feign her death and flee to Prague to beg King Wenceslaus to help save her people.

In England, the young knight Sir Gerard has a vision from God instructing him to help Elyse on her quest. When he arrives to find she has been near death for days, he manages to revive her. However, thinking the stranger was trying to kiss her, the princess immediately distrusts him. But her desperate situation forces her to accept his aid.

Pursued by her enemy’s guards over mountainous terrain, they must also battle the deadly winter elements. Her greatest challenge may be to overcome the voices of disapproval and accusation from her childhood. Will her emotions lead her into her true identity, or will they undermine her ability to work with Gerard and to save her people, who desperately need her help?

In this dazzling and romantic story, New York Times bestselling author Melanie Dickerson takes the classic Sleeping Beauty fairy tale to satisfying new heights.


My Thoughts:

 Veil of Winter by Melanie Dickerson is a delightful twist on Sleepy Beauty with a hint of Snow White. Elyse, the heroine, is a princess who cares about her people and wants to marry for love not out of obligation. Because of this, she goes on a guest to seek help from neighboring kingdoms to help stop an evil King from uniting their kingdom with hers and enslaving her people. If readers are familiar with the other Dickerson’s novels in this series, then they will be familiar with the plight of Gerard, the knight. He is a strong and courageous man who defends Elyse on her travels through the countryside. With the description of all the snow, my heart sang a sweet tune. I love snow, and I loved how Dickerson crafted into this story. Nice and piling up to stop their tracks and to create some conflict in the story. As for the plot, it is a sweet story filled with adventure and risk. It is a true Dickerson style novel. If readers are familiar with her past fairy tale re-tellings, then this story should not be a surprise with how Dickerson framed and told the story. Overall, Veil of Winter by Melanie Dickerson was a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours. I have enjoyed all of Dickerson’s stories, and this one is no exception.

Leonard Goldberg: The Blue Diamond

 By Kelly Bridgewater

The fate of the allied forces lies in the hands of Joanna and the Watsons in the next Daughter of Sherlock Holmes mystery from USA Today bestselling author Leonard Goldberg.

During a critical stage in World War One, the Governor-General of South Africa journeys to London for a meeting of The Imperial War Conference. Days prior to the conference, the Governor-General is scheduled to have an audience at Buckingham Palace at which time a most precious blue diamond will be presented to King Edward as a symbolic gesture of the colonies’ resolute and never-ending allegiance to England.

The flawless blue diamond, with its magnificent luster, weighs nearly 3000 carats which renders it one of the world’s largest and most valuable gems. On the Governor-General’s arrival, he is ensconced at the fashionable Windsor Hotel under the tightest security, with his entire entourage and formidable security team occupying the entire penthouse floor. All entrances and exits are locked down and closely guarded, and no one is allowed entrance after 6 PM.

Despite the extreme precautions, the famous diamond is stolen from the Governor-General’s suite in the middle of the night, with no clues left behind. With Scotland Yard baffled, Joanna and the Watsons are called in to investigate the theft and it becomes clear that the crime is not simply the work of a master thief, but one that could greatly aid the Germans and turn the tide of war in their favor. Time is of the essence and the blue diamond must be recovered before it begins its travels which could cause irreparable damage to the allied war plans.

My Thoughts:

The Blue Diamond by Leonard Goldberg is a continuing story of the Daughter of Sherlock Holmes series. The story begins right away with a missing diamond and a man who is on hurt severely at the hospital for the attack to his head. The plot features many thoughts from Jon Watson Jr. as he watches his wife, Joanna, try to solve the missing diamond and how they entered and exited the hotel unseen. Throughout the entire story, more elements of the mystery keep popping up and Joanna and Watson Jr. travel to various places trying to solve the mounting problems. There were moments where Joanna would watch and explain, and I, personally, felt like it did not need to be there. It was the same thing over and over. Readers might find this a little boring and want more action. I sure did. When it came to the end of the story, I do not know who stole the diamond and did the deed. I do not know if the story being so repetitive that I was not fully vested in the plot, and I did not catch who the villain was. I even flipped back through the ending of the story and had a tough time trying to figure out who did it. Overall, The Blue Diamond by Leonard Goldberg was not as exciting as past novels in this series. I needed more action. Not head hopping for chapters about a certain discovery.

Hebrews 10: 32 - 34a

 By Kelly Bridgewater

32 Remember those earlier days after you had received the light, when you endured in a great conflict full of suffering. 33 Sometimes you were publicly exposed to insult and persecution; at other times you stood side by side with those who were so treated. 34 You suffered along with those in prison
I remember in high school where some student would make fun of me because I stood strong on my faith in God. I did not drink, do drugs, and have sex, so I was the weird kid, but I was the person they all wanted to talk and consult with when their significant others broke up with them or treated them wrong. I was the one they wanted to discuss how to work harder. School was easy for me, so I was the one they ran to when they needed help with an assignment or two.

As an adult, the shape of our modern society is throwing Christians around. I knew that being a Christian was never promised to be easy. Christians have been tortured since the beginning of time. Why should I be any different than the patriarchs of our faith?

Now it seems to be happening more in American as America tries to run from the Christian faith that it was founded on.

Sin is okay as long as you have tons of followers.

Sin is okay as long as you shove it down others’ throat.

Sin is okay as long as you do it in direct light.

Sin is okay as long as you can belittle others.

Sin is okay as long as you humiliate the Christians who share the light and have values.

But sharing that this SIN is wrong is not allowed anymore. They come out and call you racist or a bigot, which is not the reality of the situation AT ALL.


Please give me the strength to stand strong with you and alongside other Christians. If I die for your name, then so be it. Help this future generation to seek you, find you, and defend you to the mortally corrupt world that we are currently residing in.


What about you? Have you personally ever been ridiculed or not allow do something because of your faith in God?

Robin Lee Hatcher: I'll Be See You

 By Kelly Bridgewater

Generations of secrets unfold as a young college student learns the truth about her great-grandmother’s World War II heartbreak and love.

Brianna Hastings’s life seems dull and full of disappointment until a handsome young man visits her church. She’s instantly smitten by the charming Greg, who leads an exciting, independent life—the kind of life she longs for. But when a college history assignment forces Brianna to interview her great-grandmother about life during World War II, she can’t believe it when Daisy presses her with questions about Greg’s character. “What sort of man is he? Who is he at his core?”

What could her great-grandmother possibly know about love at first sight?

The questions take both women back to Boise, Idaho, in the early 1940s, when war emphasized how fragile life could be. Daisy and her older sister pine for the same handsome bomber pilot—until one night of terrible judgment reveals their true characters and drives them apart. Trying to protect the people she loves the most, Daisy condemns herself to live a lie.

In the years that follow, as Daisy grapples with the consequences, she receives unexpected grace from a man she’s known her whole life but never looked at twice. Could what she learned about love save Brianna from heartache three generations later?


My Thoughts:

I’ll Be Seeing You by Robin Lee Hatcher is a time-slip novel between World War II and the present day, which is why I was interested in reading this story. I love World War II novels. While the writing was fabulous, I had a little bit of issue with the plot. This story was 100% predictable. 100% been done before. Nothing original. I have read a number of stories where the same incident that happened to Daisy, the heroine from the past timeline, have occurred to a number of different people. Nothing new there. Whereas, the present-day story is a tale of protecting your heart just a mirror image of the World War II story. Also, a repetitive storyline that has been written a number of times. While these glaring issues stood out to me, I enjoyed Hatcher’s ability to write a captivity story that did keep my attention as I sped through the story. Overall, I’ll Be Seeing You by Robin Lee Hatcher is a feel-good story about protecting your heart and being careful with it, but the plot was not original and has been written a number of times over.
