About the Book

Book: Dangerous Amish Showdown

Author: Mary Alford

Genre: Amish Suspense

Release date: August 24, 2021

Under siege in Amish country…

She must fight for their lives.

Gunshots shatter Willa Lambright’s placid Montana evening—and that’s before she discovers on-the-run lawman Mason Shetler on her doorstep. Willa hadn’t glimpsed her childhood friend since he’d turned his back on Amish country years before. Now the US marshal’s returned with an injured partner, a young witness he must protect at all costs…and vicious Mafia agents dead set on making sure none of them survive.

Two US Marshals attempt to keep a six-year-old witness safe until she can testify against the men who killed her parents. When safe houses prove unsafe, and danger finds them again, Morgan Shelter seeks refuge in his own Amish community. Having experienced tragedy in the past, he left his community and made his way into the world, and became a marshal. Now he finds himself seeking refuge with Willa Lambright and her mother.

From the very first words in this book until the conclusion, this book will keep you in suspense. The author does an excellent job of merging fear and faith in this book. I found myself unable to put this book down until I finished reading it. So if you enjoy reading books about the Amish and ones filled with suspense and danger, check out this book for yourself.

I received a complimentary copy of this book, but this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.

More from Mary

When I first heard of the title for my latest Love Inspired Suspense, I smiled. Dangerous Amish Showdown reminds me of the old westerns where the good guys face off with the bad guys and always win. As a child I loved watching them, mostly because my dad loved them so much, and yes, a big draw for me besides sharing the time with him, was seeing the good guys win. It’s what I try to put into every single book I write, and it’s exactly what happens in Dangerous Amish Showdown.

Lately, I find myself reminiscing a lot about childhood things such as watching old westerns with my dad, and smiling at those simpler times.

In Dangerous Amish Showdown, it takes coming back to his simple childhood Amish community for Mason Shetler to realize how special that life once was for him. Through the courage found in a little girl who has lost everything, and the strength of a woman whose future is uncertain, Mason discovered what he had been searching for all along.

I truly hope you enjoy Mason and Willa’s fight to protect young Samantha and the love they find along the way. And I hope their happy ending leaves you with a smile on your face, and maybe takes you back to a simpler time in your life.

Blessings always,

Mary Alford

Creative Fusion ~ A Review and Giveaway

About the Book

Book: Creative Fusion

Author: Charity Bowman Webb

Genre: RELIGION / Christian Living/Personal Growth

Release date: September 21, 2020

From the beginning of time, God endowed people with His creative intending for them to rule and steward over all the earth.

But Satan—once heaven’s most beautiful and creative angel—convinced Adam and Eve that the fruit from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil would give them a power that they already had. The moment that they ate the fruit, they handed their authority over to Satan. Oppression ruled the world; instead of the luminosity of heaven’s pattern advancing through the planet, creeping darkness took hold.

The enemy knows the highly effective powers of creativity all too well. Despite being cut off from its divine origin, he uses it with vigor to effectively communicate his counterfeit and repetitive message across the world.

Creative Fusion follows the interlinking tabernacle pattern of God laid out from Genesis through Revelation to provide Christians with the answers to reclaim the Lord’s creative energy and His DNA that He placed within us.

Author Charity Bowman-Webb wants readers to discover the magnificent wisdom in Scripture that will help them influence every area of society and harvest souls for God’s kingdom.

Creative Fusion by Charity Bowman-Webb illustrates how God is the ultimate creator. With rich imagery, powerful Scriptural references, and personal reflections by the author, this book encourages the reader to think. She illustrates the power of the Holy Spirit. From the seven days of creation to Moses, David, Solomon, Jesus, humanity, and the Restoration of All Things, this book takes the reader on a powerful journey.

The author does an excellent job of bringing God, His creation, and His Creativity to life throughout the pages of this book. As I read this book, the mental images I experienced made me appreciate the author’s attention to detail. I would love to read more books by this author. So check out this book for yourself.

I received a complimentary copy of this book, but this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.
