The TRUTH by C. N. Bring

Title:  The Truth (Celia Kelly #3) Author:  C.N. Bring Pages:  292 Year:  2014 Publisher:  Bad Day Books This is another fantastic novel by CN Bring!  This time Celia Kelly is called to take a look at a bomb site as the culprit is someone from her former case involving the Pact.  Celia begins to track him and involves her steadfast SEAL team as well.  There are many ins and outs involved with a lot of the characters from the prior two books making appearances in this third one.  It was like a family reunion as I read about these familiar characters and got to know a little bit more about their lives, their characters and their personalities.  There were a few new characters introduced, too.  Celia’s personal life takes a decided upswing.  Her secretary Gwen is involved in the investigation, voices her usual sense of humor and is game to do just about anything to help Celia.  Georgie, Celia’s assistant, is also in protection mode where Celia is concerned and is willing to go to jail f…

Meet Author Cindy N. Bring!

Recently you began a new series of posts called “The Strong Woman”. ( Where did the idea for this series of posts begin? What is the heart or idea that you are trying to place before your audience? I write about a strong woman of faith and valor, Commander Celia Kelly, and as I developed her character I realized how much she had in common with so many people I admire. There are so many women out there who are heroes to their families, coworkers and strangers on a daily basis. You don’t have to be in the military, you just have to be willing to be present and willing to serve those around you, as God asks of us in His Word. The purpose of the series is for us to encourage each other. Thank you, Lisa, for being one of those strong women who shared with us!
What sparked the idea for the life, faith and service of Commander Celia Kelly in the series that includes at this pointThe PACT,The Lieand nowThe TRUTH? I wanted to create detailed myst…

Defy the Night

Title:  Defy the Night Author:  Heather Munn & Lydia Munn Pages:  312 Year:  2014 Publisher:  Kregel No matter what age a reader is, unless quite young, this historical fiction is one to take time to read and be reminded of those courageous people who helped save lives.  In this writing based on fact, one young women desires to help save lives as she views the work of another aid worker bringing in children from Nazi camps.  The point I believe of the novel is how one French girl, Magali, has a distorted view of how she can be a Joan of Arc, looking evil in the face.  However, she doesn’t see how her impulsiveness places lives at great risk. As readers progress through the novel, they will see how Magali realizes in time and through experience all she has yet to learn.  Defy the Night is a heart-touching novel because the scenes were described so well it wasn’t hard to imagine the harsh conditions the Jews were forced to endure.  As a mother to read how other mothers willingly ga…
