Southern Storm (Cape Refuge #2)

First a dead stranger. Now a missing Police Chief. Did Chief Cade run off to elope . . . or has he met with foul play? The body in the morgue had no ID. No one knew who he was or where he came from when he walked out in front of Cade’s car. And when Cade learns he had a gunshot wound before he was struck, finding his identity becomes even more urgent. Then Cade vanishes. Authorities discover the victim’s name, and the woman Cade was last seen with turns out to have been the dead man’s wife. Speculation abounds about Cade’s relationship to the woman and his part in the victim’s death. His disappearance makes him look even more suspicious. But Blair Owens doesn’t believe the rumors. Something has happened to Cade, and she’s determined to find him. Saving Cade’s life will take faith in a God whom Blair has always doubted—but he may be her only hope.

The Proof (Mars Hill Classified #2)

The Proof opens with a suspenseful encounter between the grandson of Dr. Robert Kanewski, while watching the launch of the Space Shuttle Endeavor, and the alien spiders first seen on Mars in The Evidence. It’s an encounter that costs Dr. Kanewski his life, just as Endeavor blasts off and the journey to Mars continues for John Wells and crew. Later, on Rex Edwards’ commercial Mars rocket, Epsilon, the crew heads to Mars to learn more about the strange alien sightings there. With a successful launch to Mars, the three-person crew has an 18-month trip ahead of them. Can they endure the stress and loneliness of 18 months without loved ones? While they are gone, Earth will once again be tested by alien visitors and questionable religious ideas. Are the spiders truly aliens?
Back on earth, there are more problems than Amy’s illness and separation from her husband. Cult-like leader, Father Raines frequently shares prophetic messages from the “Father Race.” He predicts visitations that come true and the frightened world watches and waits to see what will happen. Suspecting that the “Father Race” is a hoax, FBI Special Agent Terrance Kerry continues his quest for answers. He travels around the globe, seeking Elias Ulrich, the terrorist he believes is behind the sightings of the aliens. Frequently, he turns to John Wells for insight and together they seek the truth. Ulrich continues his escape from Navy pursuers and the FBI, headed toward a mysterious and historic rendezvous off the coast of Mont Saint Michel in France. Is there an unknowable god and is Malcolm Raines his prophet? Why does Malcolm Raines, the prophet, get every prediction about the aliens perfectly correct? Who are the mother seed?
Amidst a backdrop of international intrigue and the unexplained loss of communication with the returning Mars crew, Amy Wells perseveres against the challenges of separation, and months of worry for her space-marooned husband. Acting on his own, John Wells discovers upon his return that his reunion with family would be short-lived. After the murder of his wife and children, he tracks down the man who he thinks has killed his family. In a cliffhanger ending, the reader finds that everything is not what it first appears.

Word of Honor (Newpointe 911 #3)

What will it cost to keep a promise? Of the four people at the Newpointe post office when the bomb went off, three were killed instantly. The fourth, a five-year-old boy, lies comatose in the hospital and might not survive. Who would do such a thing? The answer comes in the form of a gunman crashing through the door of the hotel room where Jill Clark is staying. With a rifle barrel pointed at her temple, the young attorney suddenly finds herself the hostage of a desperate man whose actions hardly fit his claim that he’s innocent of the bombing. Only later, when the suspect is behind bars, does Jill wonder whether he’s as guilty as he appears. Prompted by a terrifying attempt on her life, Jill and old flame Dan Nichols dig deeper into the case. But standing in their way lies an obstacle Jill hasn’t counted on: the power of a covenant. It could change her life. Or, with the clock ticking, it could seal her death. Word of Honor is book three in the Newpointe 911 series by award-winning novelist Terri Blackstock. Newpointe 911 offers taut, superbly crafted novels of faith, fear, and close-knit small-town relationships, seasoned with romance and tempered by insights into the nature of relationships, redemption, and the human heart. Look also for Private Justice, Line of Duty, Shadow of Doubt, and Trial by Fire.
