Can’t Buy Me Love by Andrea Christenson

Totally Charming

Can’t Buy Me Love by Andrea Christenson is a charming contemporary Christian novel loosely based on the Cinderella story. It is the second book in the Deep Haven Collection series.

We all have dreams. It is important to pursue our own dreams and not to be pressured into following the dreams of others. Our dreams will drive us forwards with a passion and a focus.

Sometimes we feel we have to work to earn our place within our family. In contrast in God’s family we are loved for who we are. “[God] loves you for yourself, not for what you can do for Him.” We witness characters who only do things for what they can receive in return. In contrast there are those who give out of the love in their hearts.

The Heart Of A Hero by Susan May Warren

Nail Bitingly Good

The Heart Of A Hero by Susan May Warren is a fabulous contemporary Christian adventure suspense. It is the second book in the Global Search And Rescue series which promises to be thrilling.

Once again Susan May Warren has created a marvellous set of characters who will lodge in your heart and soul. The novel can be read as a stand-alone, however if you have read some of Susan May Warren’s other series, familiar faces do pop up.

The novel’s main themes are those of search and rescue (hence the series) – literally as characters are facing a hurricane, and also spiritually. God searches for us and rescues us from a life of disconnection from Him. “God always shows up in a storm.” No matter where we go, no matter what we’ve done, God longs for each and every one of us to know Him. Susan May Warren uses the literary device of pathetic fallacy. As the storm rages around characters threatening to disrupt lives, a spiritual battle rages within.

Wyatt by Susan May Warren

All This And Jesus Too

  Wyatt by Susan May Warren is a gripping contemporary Christian romantic suspense that I just could not put down and read in just one sitting. It is the fourth book in the Montana Marshalls series and could be read as a stand-alone. I however recommend reading all the books in order so you can join all the dots.

Wow, this Montana Marshalls series is completely enthralling, my heart racing with all the action. There are locations of America and Russia, traditional Cold War enemies. Agents from both sides pit their wits. Chase scenes, terrorists and homemade bombs all add to the suspense, as well as cyber hacking. The reader is in for a thrilling ride. I cannot wait to continue the action in book five.

Add to all this, the heart and hand of God, and Wyatt really does have it all. Too often we try to work our way to be ‘good enough’ for God when we are already loved and cherished. There is nothing more to be done as Jesus did it all on the cross. God says trust Me in all situations and let Me love you. “You’re enough and you’re loved because God says so.”

Ford by Susan May Warren

Our Breacher

Ford by Susan May Warren is a thrilling contemporary Christian suspense that will have your heart racing as you follow the action. It is the third book in the Montana Marshalls series but can be read as a stand-alone. I however enjoyed catching up with familiar faces.

Once again the Marshall brothers continue to fight against corruption and rescue others. Their motto of no one being left behind continues. There is the theme of trust as characters find themselves stranded in Russia. Can the law enforcement agencies be trusted? Who exactly is telling the truth? As life seems to be unsure we need to know the One who always has our back. “Life is… unpredictable… But with God at the helm, it wasn’t out of control.” No matter how crazy life seems, nothing surprises God. He sees our end from our beginning.
