The Priority Unit

 A mysterious computer program being designed under a cloak of mystery. Multiple programmers each with one key component and no access to the rest of the program! I was drawn right into the middle of this mystery when the main programmer disappears without a trace. If you like lots of action, a mystery with interesting twists and turns, you will enjoy helping Harvey figure out this deadly mystery!


ABOUT THE BOOK: A missing man.
A mysterious computer program –
Even the people constructing it don’t know what it will do.
On the worst night of Harvey Larson’s life, his partner is killed and his wife, Carrie, walks out on him. Ten years later, the Portland, Maine police detective has learned to cope with his grief and depression. When he and the Priority Unit investigate the disappearance of software designer Nick Dunham, he meets a young woman who will change his life. Jennifer Wainthrop was the last person to admit seeing Dunham alive.
Harvey and his partner, Eddie Thibodeau, stay a step ahead of a bomber and put together the clues that tell the truth: Dunham’s kidnapping and the bombings are one case, and Jennifer is caught in the middle. News that Carrie has committed suicide may plunge Harvey back into despair. Harvey turns to God for help untangling his complicated life. He finds strength in his faith as he attempts to save Jennifer from the same grim fate that claimed Nick. But Jennifer must depend on her own wits and God alone when the killer gets too close.


Echo Canyon


I enjoyed this story of young Iris and learning about the hard life this young Mormon woman would have lived. Settling in Utah in the 1800’s was a lot of hard work for Iris when she was placed into a family she didn’t know because a husband had been chosen for her. Hard work and trying to fit in where she didn’t want to be.. I was totally rooting for her to run to the shelter offered by the Sherman’s.  Wild horses, the Army, the struggles of settling the wildness of Utah and the faith it took to survive made for a great backdrop for a little romance and a wild race to the end.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Iris Perkins is told she will be married soon to a man she despises. A chance visit by two brothers and a beautiful woman from the other side of Echo Canyon gives her hope. For Edward Sherman, venturing into Utah with his brother to buy horses is risky. He only wants to find the livestock they need and get back to Fort Bridger, until he meets a frightened young woman in need. He’ll do anything he can to save Iris, even race against the man determined to marry her.

The Saboteur


This Police investigation soon had Debra into the mix of things when she took a job as the Sergeants secretary. Mystery, sabotage from inside and a touch of romance kept me turning the pages as each mishap just added more intrigue to the story!  Fast paced and lots of twists and turns made this one I was asking,  who?  who? Right to the end!


ABOUT THE BOOK:  Debra Griffin takes a job at the local police station as secretary to the detective sergeant, Michael Van Sant. Michael is trying to learn who wants to sabotage his unit, and Debra is soon caught up in his hush-hush investigation—while she tries not to fall head over heels for her boss. But danger is nearer than she thinks. When she confronts the saboteur, Mike and his detectives race against the clock. But is one of the men he trusted trying to get Debra out of the way and bring them down?

Trails & Targets by Kelly Eileen Hake

I really liked this book, Trails & Targets by Kelly Eileen Hake. Mr. Darlyn has certainly taught his daughters well. The quick wit and unconventional talent of the four Daryln sisters make them a family force to be aware of. Beatrix Darlyn is the oldest and runs the family with the wisdom of a woman much older. Each sister has become a master at a skill unconventional for women of that time. You will enjoy reading about how one sister can shoot flying targets with a rifle with pinpoint precision, another can throw knives, another skilled in archery can hit a bulls eye in a moving target & the youngest a terrific trick rider. I found this a delightful story set in the Old West with a tall dark stranger riding in off the range to bring in a little romance. Just maybe this Greyson Wilder will be someone who will help save the family farm. Greyson Wilder is just a bone picker (one who rides the prairies looking for buffalo bones) who is riding through but he has the smarts of a one time lawman. Will Grey be the Darlyns hero? Is Grey smart enough to turn the tables on the local town bully wanting to steal the farm? With the help of the dangerous Daryln sisters, maybe so. If you like a good western with some dimpled Darlyns and a just plain good ride, saddle up with the Dangerous Darylns and have a good time. I received this book from Barbour Publishing for my honest opinion which I have given.
