To make matters even more frightening, the photographer claims that the image of Skylar is not his work--someone replaced the photo that he created. Reuniting with Parker to solve the crime is emotional and intense, and it will take all of their faith and special skills to overcome the deadly threat they face to their future happiness and their very lives.

Author Rosamund Lupton has created such a tale in "The Quality of Silence". Yasmin and her ten-year-old daughter, Ruby, travel from England to a frigidly remote section of Alaska to reunite with Ruby's father, Matt, who has been making a film about wildlife there during the winter. Upon their arrival, they are told that Matt was killed in a fire which destroyed the village where he had been staying. Yasmin refuses to believe that Matt is really lost to them, and she and Ruby embark on a harrowing search where the brutal ice of the land is not their only enemy. Someone is trailing them with evil intent. Ruby, who is hearing-impaired, can speak, but she prefers to communicate with sign language and social media, including her own blog. Both of her parents love her, but they don't agree on many issues regarding Ruby's welfare. Yasmin and Ruby face many obstacles in their ordeal to find Matt, and Ruby proves to be a very resourceful young lady, indeed. The forces of nature are just as deadly as the threats they face from unscrupulous humans, and time is of the essence to find Matt and bring their family back together--but will time run out for them all?

The thrilling romantic suspense series “Target: Timberline” from author Carol Ericson continues with Book 3, “Army Ranger Redemption”. Wounded in bodyThe thrilling romantic suspense series “Target: Timberline” from author Carol Ericson continues with Book 3, “Army Ranger Redemption”. Wounded in body and spirit, army ranger veteran Jim Kennedy goes home to Timberline to deal with haunting issues from his past and to figure out what his future will be. He isn’t prepared to run into beautiful Scarlett Easton and to then stumble into a murder mystery somehow connected to the Timberline Trio kidnapping case from many years ago. Scarlett is surprised by Jim’s sudden reappearance, but she is even more stunned by the fact that Jim’s war experience and outward scars have done nothing to take away from his attractiveness. They had attended high school together, and she had always been drawn to his “bad boy”, motorcycle-riding persona. Jim couldn’t fail to notice that the pretty young girl he remembered had bloomed into a beautiful and intriguing woman. Scarlett, a native Quileute and talented artist, had been gifted with her family’s extra-sensory ability of “sight” and enhanced perception and intuition. Touching Jim lets her know that he has suffered much and says little. As the danger surrounding them escalates, they discover that they both have a legacy tied to the Timberline Trio. Will it prove to be a deadly legacy for Scarlett and Jim, or is their hope for them to put the past behind them and look forward to a happy future together? I really enjoyed “Army Ranger Redemption”—my favorite book so far in the series—and its very appealing hero. I am looking forward to Book 4, “In the Arms of the Enemy” to reach the conclusion of the “Target: Timberline” mystery. Book Copy Gratis Author...more
