Taylor Palmetta has spent the past year in Europe building her art career and hiding from Navy SEAL Quinn Lambert, the man who broke her heart. But Taylor can’t seem to hide from trouble. When Taylor seeks safety with her family in Virginia Beach, a series of threats puts her on high alert— and puts Quinn into protective mode.
Despite the private loss that continues to haunt him, Quinn can’t deny his renewed attraction to Taylor. But just as the romance heats up, a plot against the very foundation of the American way of life surfaces, and Taylor’s paintings may hold the key. The Saint Squad is back in action as the team frantically tries to protect their nation’s security—and Taylor and Quinn search for courage to unlock the troubled past. This is the latest installment in the Saint Squad series and Traci Hunter Abramson, has another winner in Smokescreen. This is Quinn's story. He is the last single member of the Squad. Quinn has a secret that has kept him from forming a lasting relationship. I was glad that his secret wasn't revealed too early in the book. As always Traci has included a lot of twists in the story, so the true bad guys aren't obvious until the very end. I had a hard time putting it down until I was finished. You can learn more about Traci and her books by visiting her website HERE or her blog HERE. Smokescreen can be purchased at www.deseretbook.com, www.seagullbook.com, http://www.amazon.com/ both in paper and Kindle, or as always you can try inter library loan.
After a fluke lottery win, Karen Donaldson - the ward charity case - is determined to use her millions to pay back all the kindness she's received. But the future holds a few more surprises for Karen, her neighbors, and someone she thought was gone forever. Sweet, funny, and full of heart, this off-beat comedy is perfect for anyone who's ever dreamed of making it big.
I have often fantasized about what I would do if I won the lottery. I have to admit, I don't think I would be as generous and creative with my winnings as Karen Donaldson was.
I had a good time reading this book and thinking about the possibilities with each new kindness Karen did.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading Susan Law Corpany's latest book. My only grumble was the Kindle formatting was way off, and a lot of word, like proper names, that should have been capitalized weren't. While that was a distraction, it didn't detract from my enjoyment of the story.
I would recommend this to everyone, especially if you have ever fantasized about winning the lottery.
Welcome to Mary's Book Corner. I read a lot and like to share my opinions about the books I read. The opinions on this blog are my own, not everyone will share my taste in books or agree with my opinion. You are welcome to post opposing opinions, but keep it friendly and civil. Writing a review always reminds me of the much hated Book Reports I had to do in grade school, so my reviews are usually short . I hope someday I will get past that, until then it is what it is.
Welcome to my blog. The thoughts and opinions here are strictly my own. My parents signed me up for my 1st book club before I was born. I have always loved books and reading. The 1st LDS Fiction I read was Added Upon by Nephi Anderson when I was 10. At the time it was the very best LDS Fiction had to offer. It has greatly improved over the past few years. I read as much as I can in my spare time. I grew up in Massachusetts, went to High School at Algonquin Regional High School, and college at Utah State University. I have lived in Michigan, Massachusetts & Utah. I currently live in Phoenix, AZ where I work full time as a Patient Care Advocate, My other activities include crocheting, I especially like Amigurumi Animals.
Family History is another passion I wish I had more time to work on it.
I welcome commets, as long as they are tasteful and respectful, all others will be deleted.
In 1967 and again in 1977 President Spencer W. Kimball challenged the members of the Church to produce works of art that would do justice to the drama and beauty inherent in the history of the Church and its mission in the world. “We are proud of the artistic heritage that the Church has brought to us from its earliest beginnings,” he said, “but the full story of Mormonism has never yet been written nor painted nor sculpted nor spoken. It remains for inspired hearts and talented fingers yet to reveal themselves.” (See Ensign, July 1977, p. 5.)
No doubt, we will yet have Miltons and Shakespeares of our own. But such literary greatness will be achieved only by great souls. Our religion is capable of cultivating those great souls; and it shall.
