Feta and Freeways ~ Susan M. Baganz

  Feta and Freeways - Susan M. Baganz

Feta and FreewaysHe’d never noticed her…till now. 

Nikolos Acton is the lead singer of a Christian Band, Specific Gravity, struggling to make it in the industry after an unplanned break, touring the country with their manager, Tia. 

Tia Bartel loved Niko for the longest time, but it wasn’t until she stepped in to save his life that he finally realizes what has been there all along. Is it too late for him? Could a relationship between them work after years of ignoring her? How would he ever convince her he’s worthy of her trust? 

As they journey on the freeway of life and love, they encounter struggles as they are forced to rely on their faith, and friends, to make it through.

My Review:  Tai is secretly in love with the lead singer of the Christian band she manages, but Niko doesn’t seem to notice. He isn’t even aware she’s around even though she
has done countless things to further his career. When she puts her life on the line to save him, his eyes are opened.

This is a touching story of a couple finding each other and working through fears and uncertainties all played out against the backdrop of a touring singing group. Action and excellent writing keep the story moving to a delightful and poignant end.

Through Raging Waters ~ Renee Blare

Through Raging Waters ~ Renee Blare

Through Raging WatersIf Mother Nature has her way, Timber Springs will never be the same... 

A warm spring and early rainstorms melt the snowpack. Spring runoff compounded by the storm of the century sends Timber Springs into a tailspin. 
Tossed into the role of rescuer, local pharmacist Paul Fitzgerald must face his past before the whole world falls apart. While he fights to contain the beast around him, he finds his steadfast control slipping through his fingers. And life…everyone’s life…hangs by a thread once again. 
She isn’t a hero. Melissa Hampton has her own demons to battle. After she learns of her mysterious beginnings amidst her mother’s keepsakes, she faces more than just the river rushing outside her door. Now, she must discern friend from foe…but as waters rise and tension climbs within Timber Springs, she needs to rise to the challenge or lose the only man she's ever loved. 

Can two people find each other through raging waters?

My Review:  An early spring storm sends a deluge on the tiny hamlet of Timber Springs and the creek crests its banks. Prominent members of the Fitzgerald family jump into action to rescue the flooded town. Paul Fitzgerald, the town’s pharmacist, puts together a team to rescue surveyors stranded at mountain cabin.

Melissa Hampton works for a large timber company and finds herself in the fray locating equipment for her boss and the town’s rescue. She gets caught up in the search for the surveying team due to her concern for Paul, the man she loves.

While more than a rescue attempt plays out at the cabin, Melissa and Paul become acutely aware they may not survive their ordeal.

Ms. Blare writes with a great deal of emotion and impact. The story progresses at a rapid pace making it hard to put down.
