CHECK THIS OUT: Angel Beneath My Wheels by K.S. Moore

Julie’s Note: I love to introduce readers to new-to-them authors and books. Each month I try to accomplish that with the Check This Out feature. I hope you take a look at Angel Beneath My Wheels!

Bio: Kathryn Moore grew up working on cars with her father in Indianapolis and now lives in southwest Michigan with her husband, two children and a little Yorkie named Bear. She is a graduate of Purdue University where she studied information technology, engineering, and chemistry. When she’s not working, writing or serving in her local youth ministry, she enjoys the outdoors with family and friends.

 Through her writing, Moore strives is to bridge the gap between Christian literature and mainstream best sellers, to depict contemporary Christians in real-life stories of love, drama, action and adventure, to show (not tell!) what it means to live a Christ-centered life in today’s culture, and to provide wholesome fodder for more family-friendly movies.

A prolific reader, she’s always enjoyed the escape of a really good book and four years ago decided to try her hand at writing one of her own. Her first book, Angel Beneath My Wheels, was released on February 29th, 2016. If you’d like to receive her monthly short stories called Touches, join her mailing list here.

Angel Beneath My Wheels by KS Moore

Book Blurb: 

Beneath his playboy façade, young NASCAR driver Luke Brandt yearns for a family. Rachel Tate, an inventive, purity-ring-wearing mechanical engineer, is determined to prove herself in a male dominated industry. When Luke outbids Rachel on the only two muscle cars she could use to test her new vapor-fueled engine, she wants nothing to do with him. But Luke’s gentle ways and down home country charm just might win her over—if his painful past doesn’t push her away.

 

When she begins to touch his heart, he’s haunted by bitter memories of the only woman he’s ever loved—the mother who abandoned him as a little boy. With an intense trust that God will lead her on life’s journey, Rachel perseveres, her innocence and grace breach his defenses and his walls begin to crumble. As they join forces to bring her remarkable invention to market, their love, their very lives, are threatened by the iron-tight grip that “Big Oil” holds over the whole auto industry and Luke realizes his final happiness must come through faith, in the One who has always loved him… and always will.

 

 

Endorsements:

 “Creating stories has always been a powerful tool to communicate truths that need to be heard in a relevant way. Angel Beneath My Wheels captivates you and takes you on an ages old journey of the potential to discover trust lost. Often hidden beneath the surface of our personas we create resides, in many of us, a need to trust once again, and in the process receive healing. Kathryn has written a wonderful and creative novel that will take you beyond fiction to fact… that trust is healing, and when built upon a foundation of faith in Christ, saving, and conquering.” ~ Billy E. Mauldin Jr., President and CEO, Motor Racing Outreach, co-author of The Race: Living Life on Track

 Kathryn Sue Moore’s inspiring debut, Angel Beneath My Wheels, is brimming with romance, passion, and heart. With a spunky protagonist who can turn heads and change carburetors how cool is that?! Christian romance readers and NASCAR fans will flock to this charming, uplifting novel. ~ Lori Nelson Spielman, best-selling author of The Life List and Sweet Forgiveness

 Having been married for more than 40 years, and having ministered to late-stage cancer patients for more than 10 years, I had thought that perhaps my heart might have lost its ability to be moved and made emotionally vulnerable. Angel Beneath My Wheels reminded me of the sweetness and innocence of first love.” My heart was touched by this story and I believe yours will be too. ~ Rev. Dr. Michael Barry, author of A Reason for Hope, A Season for Hope, The Art of Caregiving and The Forgiveness Project

Book Review: Missing by Lisa Harris

Missing by Lisa Harris

Missing by Lisa Harris

Nikki Boyd Enters the Deadly World of Counterfeit Drugs to Find a Missing Woman

Nikki Boyd isn’t usually called in on homicides; her forte is missing persons. But when a case with two murdered and two missing pops up on a quiet suburban street, she’s ready to start the investigation and find missing homeowners Mac and Lucy Hudson. When the first clues lead her to the boat of her friend Tyler Grant–and another dead body–Nikki must untangle what ties Tyler to the Hudsons. The clues pull her into a deadly maze of counterfeit drugs and a killer who will stop at nothing to silence anyone who threatens his business–including Nikki.

Christy Award-winning and bestselling author Lisa Harris puts readers right into the action in this fast-paced thriller that will have them turning pages long into the night.

Although this is Book 2 in the Nikki Boyd Files, I believe this could also be a stand-alone. Nikki’s called into a case that is close for comfort—her deceased best friend’s dad and husband are in the middle of a homicide and missing person’s case. Not only does Nikki have to get to the bottom of it, she has to fight her growing feelings for the handsome widower.

I love this series and Missing is just as good as Vendetta. There’s great suspense filled with emotion. Nikki is a strong heroine who carries the book and series well. I felt there was great conflict and action, but she wasn’t a cardboard character. She had emotions and fears without compromising her job. I also enjoyed the role Tyler plays. Is he part of the crime? Can he be trusted? Is it wrong for Nikki to feel the way she does about him? All these things kept me turning the pages, and I felt more than satisfied at the conclusion.

If you love action, suspense, crime, and a touch of romance, I believe you’ll be more than satisfied with MISSING, too.

The Comfort of Full House and Wind Chimes

The words for my 2016 are perspective and fierce. Perspective has kept me in check through transition I never saw coming. Fierce? I’m not feeling it, but I’m still reflecting on it.

With the year more than half over, we’ve hit a lot of those stress lists where counselors tell you to only endure one or two. We’ve…

-Had two major job changes

-A wedding

-A graduation

-Two book releases

-Health stuff

and last week, Tom’s dad passed away.

If I had not survived a season similar to this, I’d be reeling. I’m hanging on to God’s word, praying a lot, letting tears come, being honest with my feelings and watching Full House.

Not the re boot, but the original. Early in the summer we ditched cable and a friend knew our daughter loves Full House. He gave her every episode on DVD.

Every.

Episode.

You know that show lasted 8 seasons, right?

That means there is a lot of Uncle Jesse.

Funny thing is, a lot of times I’m in the same room when our daughter is and that’s what she has one. At first I was annoyed because I watched it as a teen real time, then as a step-mom when kids visited, then as a nursing mom, and now with her. I know the episodes. I can tell you the next line and what actors played two different characters. I know this show.

And as the summer goes on, I realize when I have the opportunity to turn off the television, I let it play.

Because with such a topsy-turvy year, the show is comforting.

It’s wholesome and light, even with a single dad and girls who miss their mom. There is love and family. Commitment. Laughter.

Full House and Wind Chimes

Full House and Wind Chimes

We also received kind gifts as we grieve. Tom’s work gave us customized wind chimes that play the opening measures to Amazing Grace. I hung them out on our deck and the chimes are so soothing. As I tended to a little crisis outside, the chimes kept me calm.

It’s the little things, isn’t it?

There’s nothing big to take away from this post, just a confession that Full House isn’t driving me crazy but actually helping. Wind chimes soothe me.

What everyday items help you when things are going crazy around you?

2016

LAUREL AWARD WINNER!

This year, At First Sight took home Clash of the Titles’s sixth annual
Laurel Award. Over the course of six weeks, the novel’s first chapters
were read and judged by avid readers of Christian fiction who determined
At First Sight to be the worthiest to receive the 2016
Laurel Award.

Congratulations to 2016 Laurel Award Winner Delia Latham

Clash of the Titles extends a heartfelt congratulations to author Delia
Latham for her exemplary writing. We wish God’s richest blessings on her

About At First Sight :

Reagan Massey has gone through a great deal of trouble to make her
cousin irresistible to the visiting single minister but things get a
little sticky when Reagan falls in love with Cord Phillips
herself…
Cord doesn’t believe in marital bliss after seeing the mockery his
parents made of their vows. He’s promised himself he’ll live as the
Apostle Paul lived, dedicating himself solely to God. When his heart
turns traitor, Cord has to completely rethink his position on
love.
Things around Riverbend House of Worship take on some humorous,
heart-touching, soul-stirring twists and turns, with Reagan and Cord so
busy getting in God’s way that they can’t see the path He has laid out
for them to travel…together.

LISTEN TO
A RADIO INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR!

Delia in her own words:

 

A born-and-bred California gal, I grew up in a little community called
Weedpatch. Nope, that’s not a typo. It’s a few miles southeast of
Bakersfield, and in the…well, I won’t say how many years since I left
there…Weedpatch has even found its way onto a map or two.Writing has been my passion since third grade, when I won an essay
writing contest and took home the coveted prize: a beautiful bed doll
with an overstuffed pink, quilted satin skirt. Remember them? Huge,
padded skirts, some (like mine) with flat cardboard bottoms to
accommodate display. The doll’s feet were hidden away somewhere in all
that finery, never again to see the light of day. These fancy ladies
were most often used as centerpieces for beds, and that’s where mine
went – smack in the middle of my unimposing bed in my unmatched,
Salvation Army-furnished bedroom. It was the most elegant item I had
ever owned, and I was one proud little lassie. (Ahem … surely
someone else remembers those dollies?)

Winning that contest made a profound impact on my young psyche – enough
so that I never stopped writing. From those first little songs and poems
and (very bad) short stories, I graduated to Staff Writer for a large
daily newspaper; freelanced for an upper-scale regional magazine; and
finally began writing fiction…which was my goal all along.
