Today I'd like to welcome Prism Book Group's Alice Wootson. Alice Greenhowe Wootson grew up in a suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

She later earned a Masters Degree in Education, and Reading Specialist Certification.

What the reviewers are saying:  "This was an intense read! From the moment I picked this book up, I was hooked. A wonderful blend of romance, action and inspiration." Rachel James

"If you like action and or it!" djforjesus

"I loved the combined love story and adventure tale contained in this book. The intertwined plots were interesting and realistic." Carlene

My Review:  Alice Wootson writes a compelling page turner in Border Love. The two main characters, Brooke and Darien, are Border Patrol Agents in Brownsville, Texas. They each come from other assignments and want to do a good job regardless of being haunted by their past.

The two are assigned as partners and on their first day together, their headquarters is rocked by a bomb. There are other incidents down the border and several agents are killed and others as well as civilians are injured. The agency fears there’s more involved than illegal crossings, maybe drugs and even terrorists.

Darien and Brooke must train new officers from the academy due to the shorthanded staff, but one good thing comes of it when they can develop a relationship, something that couldn’t happen if they were partners.

Brooke’s new partner makes a rookie mistake and gets himself shot and Brooke disappears. Who has her and will Dairen every find his newly found love? It’s all in God’s hands.

Ms. Wootson reveals the everyday perils of border agents and how they lay their lives on the line for their job. The love story is sweet and the trust built between the couple is strengthened by the tragedies they face.

This is now on my TBR list. With so much happening at the Texas border these days, this is a timely read. Thanks for the interview!

"Border Love" is a great read. I was going to save it for a vacation book. But then I read a little bit...and couldn't stop!
