Marji Laine: Faith~Driven Fiction

. . . Authentic and Intense


Tension, Romance, and Twists

Rising DarknessLast weekend, I delighted in inhaling Rising Darkness by fellow Suspense Sister, Nancy Mehl.  This is the 3rd book in her Finding Sanctuary series, but I’ve found that the two I’ve enjoyed (this one along with the first) are carefully crafted, stand-alone books. The well-loved characters from past books revisited in the third enhancing the story for readers who have followed along, but Continue reading

Review: A Ranch to Call Home by Leann Harris

A ranch to call homeThe last book I read truly provided an oasis during a very busy time. Do you ever get that kind of stress? Like you’re a basketball going from one thing to another, always moving, always full of energy. So when any downtime came – and I mean ANY: grocery lines, carpool, dentist waiting room (just a handful of places I enjoyed over the past two weeks) – I pulled out this book and was wafted away to small town, south of Ft. Worth, with amiable people and a warm inviting story. Continue reading
