The Other LI Suspense Releases in May & Giveaway!


I'm back! Sorry, but the birth of my third child waylaid me in the middle of this month. Isn't she cute?!?!? Fortunately, Abigail and Jonathan adore Rebecca. They are actually a huge help, but that's not what you came here to read about. So let's talk suspense!

This month in addition to my book -- YEAH! -- and Robin Carroll's Bayou Justice, there were two other releases in the Love Inspired Suspense Line. Those are Ginny Aiken's Danger in a Small Town, and Lenora Worth's A Face in the Shadows.

Here's the teaser on both of these books.

Danger in a Small Town: She was supposed to be safe. Someone had broken into Tess Graver's home and trashed the place. But this was no random robbery. The intruder was looking for something specific -- but what? With her own secrets to keep hidden, Tess reluctantly turned to neighbor Ethan Rogers for help. The been-there, seen-that former DEA agent wanted nothing to do with the big-city crime from his old life. But Ethan wasn't about to let the dangerous thugs take over his small town. Or scare strong, sweet Tess into running away -- no when he'd just found her.

A Face in the Shadows: Did he kill Josie Skerritt? Everyone -- including the police -- suspected Parker Buchanan of the ten-year-old murder. But Kate Brooks knew the brooding loner couldnt' have do it. He was her young son's hero, and Kate had fallen hard for the reclusive author. Town gossips demanded Parker explain the incriminating evidence police found with his initials on it. But Parker couldn't. Kate knew proving his innocence would take all their faith -- and fast thinking-- combined. Because the real killer was setting them up for a double murder -- their own.

I have copies of May's four LI Suspense books to giveaway. To enter to win, leave a comment to this post or any from May 28-31. Tell me where you find Love Inspired books or why you like to read them or other suspense. Good luck!

Cara,
Congrats! Rebecca is beautiful! And what a sparkling post. If I didn't already have all four books, I'd be running out to buy them. I'm loving the LIS line. I'm a little behind. I just finished Robin's 2nd book -while camping in snow. Okay, readers what do you think?

Congrats on your new daughter! :)

I normally find a lot of Love Inspired books at McKays, but I tend to buy them online more often! :)

Cara Putman said...

Cindi, How fun that your son is at Purdue. I teach business law there -- right now to MBA students.

Audra, what's a McKays? Is it a grocery store? I love learning new things like that :-)

Stampedwithgrace, thanks for stopping by -- hopefully your persistence will pay off!

I find them online as we have a small bookshop and the city ones in Australia dont seem to have many of the suspense ones. I have won a couple online and a friend sent me a couple. I did look into buying them from the club but having to pay for a year subscription upfront I couldn't afford it at this stage. But when i go to Canada in Sept I may bring some back.
Please enter me.

YOu have beautiful children! Congratulations. I get my inspired from WalMart. I never used to read them unless they were from the library but when I decided to try to write them I found them in WalMart. Never even knew they were there, though.
