Not-As-Recent Releases from B&H Books

Deliver Us From Evil by Robin CarollA beautiful yet tough woman working in a beautiful yet tough setting, Brannon Callahan is a search and rescue helicopter pilot for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Strong faith and a decorated history of service have kept her one step ahead of on-the-job dangers, but there’s no precedent for what’s about to happen. After a blizzard takes down a small plane carrying U.S. Marshal Roark Holland (already haunted by a recent tragedy), Brannon must save him in more ways than one and safeguard the donor heart he’s transporting to a government witness on the edge of death. Otherwise the largest child trafficking ring in history-with shocking links from Thailand to Tennessee-will slip further away into darkness along the Appalachian Trail.

Fear No Evil by Robin CarollWith his father in a nursing home and his mother needing support, former Great Smoky Mountains park ranger Lincoln Vailes moves to the bayou town of Eternal Springs, Louisiana, to become a police officer. Recent college graduate and eager social worker, Jade Laurent has also moved there to try and right the wrongs of an abusive past. But someone is running her car off the road and pointing guns in her direction. As Lincoln investigates her case,he uncovers ties to big-city gang warfare up north that appears to be makingits evil way down south.

My thoughts on Robin Caroll: I haven’t read either of these books or anything else by the author–mainly because they look pretty edgy and I have to pick my seasons of life for that. 🙂 My brother started reading one and thought it was a bit slow and didn’t finish, but I would still be willing to give them a shot.

The Confirmation by Ralph ReedNewly elected U.S. president Bob Long is weighing reports of nuclear weapons in Iran when he learns Justice Peter Corbin Franklin, 86-year-old liberal conscience of the Supreme Court, has suffered a massive stroke. With pressing same-sex marriage and abortion laws as well as a huge antitrust case on the court’s docket, the door is open for Long to appoint a conservative replacement, repaying the twenty-one million evangelicals who voted for him. But it won’t be that easy. Long suffers a series of political missteps while his court nominee, Marco Diaz, endures vicious character accusations in the media for his religious beliefs and rumors of a tragic past. Meanwhile, terrorists in Iran have hijacked more nuclear materials and are threatening to bomb a major city if the U.S. or Israel attacks. Chaos reigns in the nation’s capitol . . . (Sep 15, 2010)

My thoughts: I haven’t read this book yet but I do like political/legal thrillers!

My thoughts: I’m not much into novellas myself but, if you like Jamie Carie, you will like this one!

Facelift by Leanna EllisIn life and love, we could all stand a few nips and tucks . . . Kaye Redmond, a “can do” kind of woman, has the magical touch when it comes to staging houses to attract buyers. Her ability to make things “perfect” has served her well in her career. If only it could transform her personal life as well. With a failed marriage, an angry teenage daughter, and an ex-mother-in-law who is no fairy godmother, Kaye’s life is about as imperfect as it gets. But sometimes blessings come in the strangest packages. Like her ex-mother-in-law landing on Kaye’s doorstep after a botched facelift. Could caring for the impossible woman help Kaye get what she wants most: her husband back? Isn’t that what God would want? And what her daughter needs? But no fairy princess ever faced such obstacles: an ex-husband’s surgically enhanced mistress, hormonal teenagers, and–worst of all–an extra handsome prince! How’s a woman supposed to find happily-ever-after with all that going on? (October 1, 2010)

My thoughts: I haven’t been able to get into ANY of this author’s other books so with that, as well as the book looking like it wasn’t “my thing”, I didn’t expect to like it. However, I was pleasantly surprised and did enjoy the entire read!
