Wolves Among Us Review

About The Book:

This richly imagined tale takes readers to a tiny German town in the time of “the burnings,” when pious and heretic alike became victims of witch-hunting zealots. When a double murder stirs up festering fears, the village priest sends for help. But the charismatic Inquisitor who answers the call brings a deadly mix of spiritual fervor and self-deceptive evil. Under his influence, village fear, guilt, and suspicion of women take a deadly turn. In the midst of this nightmare, a doubting priest and an unloved wife—a secret friend of the recently martyred William Tyndale—somehow manage to hear another Voice…and discover the power of love over fear. Dinfoil, Germany, 1538. In a little town on the edge of the Black Forest, a double murder stirs up festering fears. A lonely woman despairs of pleasing her husband and wonders why other women shun her. An overworked sheriff struggles to hold the town—and himself—together. A priest begins to doubt the power of the words he shares daily with his flock. And the charismatic Inquisitor who arrives to help—with a filthy witch in a cage as an object lesson—brings his own mix of lofty ideals and treacherous evil. Under his influence, ordinary village fears and resentments take a deadly turn. Terror mounts. Dark deeds come to light. And men and women alike discover not only what they are capable of, but who they are…and what it means to grapple for grace.

My Review:
beautiful eyes of a wild wolf - stock photo 
Wolves Among Us is an interesting book about witch-hunts and lurking evil spirits. Mia is an unloved wife that ended up thinking she found  her mean husband dead in the woods. Stefan, a doubting priest, ends up finding himself all tangled up in this little (huge) mess. And only time will tell how God will take the bad and make better than before.
The Author has done a wonderful job explaining what happened in Germany in the 1500's. She described everything beautifully. I can't wait to see what she writes next.

Twisted Wolf Review

Sam scale of 0 to 5 stars…5 Star Book

About The Book:
What if the most upright person, stumbles? Oh, and that person, is the President of the United States? And, in the process of attempting to conceal his mistake, he is accused of treason and murder? Army Lieutenant Josh Davis suffers a devastating tragedy while home on military leave. Trusting God for strength, he triumphs, earning the Congressional Medal of Honor. But heroism comes with consequences. Years later, a conservative group asks Josh to run for the Oval Office. To his surprise, to get there, he must campaign against his father-in-law, a former one-term President. Their political, and personal, embattlement ends with a surprising twist of fate. Discover what happens when Josh finds himself in the highest office in the nation. Early success leads him to seek Middle-East peace. His pride increases, devours his faith and he gives into temptation. Observe as he attempts to cover up his sin. Witness his wife as she watches her husband’s downward spiral and potential guilt. Walk with Josh, as he struggles with his own inner conflict of trusting God. Is it too late to save his marriage and his presidency? Ascertain his guilt during his impeachment for treason and the murder of six Navy SEALs. Experience the twists and turns of a life seemingly out of control.
My Review:
At the beginning of Twisted Wolf, we find ourselves sitting in the woods with Army Lieutenant Josh Davis. All is quiet and still, when Josh see's something move. As he look's he just see's a rabbit. Then a big Elk walks up but then runs. Josh is suddenly attacked. A few days later he wakes up in the hospital, not knowing what happened. After finding out that he was attacked by a bear, he wonders what he is going to do now. Why would God let this happen? He knows all to well that he may end up as a desk jockey. But question still hangs in the air, Why would God let this happen?

 11I know that you are pleased with me, for my enemy does not triumph over me. 12 Because of my integrity you uphold me and set me in your presence forever. 13 Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting.  Amen and Amen.       Psalm 41:11-13 (NIV)

As we all know God has a special plan for us, of which we will never know the out come ( until we get there). God has a special plan for Josh Davis, but it may not be how he pictured it. Life as he knows it is about to change.
