Kate O’Brien and her twin sister, Kelly, were attacked four years ago by a serial killer dubbed the Blue-Eyed Killer.  Kelly didn’t survive the attack. 

After the trial Kate is relocated to the quiet town of Shelter Cove, Arkansas.  Suddenly her quiet world is turned upside down when new evidence maybe show the convicted Blue-Eyed Killer isn’t the murderer.  Kate is subpoenaed to testify once again, but only agrees to go back to St. Louis if Tony DeLuca, escorts her.  He was the original U.S. Marshal who protected her during the first trial and she trusts him.  Of course things never go as planned and Tony finds himself once again trying to keep her alive, while keeping his feelings for her at bay.


This book is guaranteed to catch your attention from the first page and as the suspense builds with each twist and turn it will keep you on the edge of your seat.  I thoroughly enjoyed this romantic suspense novel and highly recommend it be added to the top of your summer reading list.

“The Weekly Prayer Project” challenges you to reconnect to God through journaling, prayer and reflection.  This journal has 52 scriptures, one for each week of the year.  It has space for journaling and reflection, plus prompts to help you in your thought process.  It is beautifully bound hard-cover and lays flat making it easy to journal.  It is divided into seven sections, each representing a prayer found in the Bible.

I have been journaling for sometime now in my daily devotions and love the concept of “The Weekly Prayer Project”.  It will encourage me to not only journal my thoughts, but also my prayers. In this book I love the fact that the pages are not dated so you can skip around and study what is most appealing to your situation in any given week.  Also if you are a newbie to journaling or just stuck on what direction your thoughts should go…it gives you encouraging prompts.  For the most part I was very impressed with this journal, but at some time would love to see one published in the King James Version for those of us who are fans of that translation.  At this point I am just paralleling the two scriptures together.  If you are a died-hard KJV person, this would not be the journal for you.
