I love to feature Christian fiction on Write Thinking because there are so many wonderful authors writing for this market. My goal is to highlight at least one novel per week and sometimes two. Watch for the featured books on Mondays and/or Wednesdays. Most of the books I’ll feature, I haven’t read because they are new releases (and besides, I’m way behind in my reading), but I have read and enjoyed previous books by many of the authors who are featured on this blog.
RELUCTANT RUNAWAY by Jill Nelson
About the Author: Jill Elizabeth Nelson is a member of the CFBA. Her blog, Artistic Blogger, addresses issues about art, art theft, antiquities preservation, and the art of fiction writing. She takes art seriously – when she’s not having fun with it, that is. The To Catch a Thief Series combines her love of the written word with her love of other art forms.
The first in the series was Reluctant Burglar , second is Reluctant Runaway. In January 2008, she will reveal the third book, Reluctant Smuggler. Jill is thrilled if the adventures that spill from her imagination can raise awareness about art theft – deemed "a looming criminal enterprise" by the FBI. Jill and her husband, Doug, have four children and live in Minnesota.
About the Book: Museum security expert Desiree Jacobs doesn’t mean to get in danger’s path. Really she doesn’t. But when a friend is in trouble you don’t just walk away. No matter what your overprotective FBI agent boyfriend says! So when Desi and Tony’s date at a presidential ball is interrupted by a frantic Maxine Webb, Desi doesn’t hesitate to jump in.
Soon Desi is neck-deep in a confusing array of villains. Did Max’s niece run away or was she taken? Is she still alive or the victim of a perverse ritual? And who wants her infant son–and why?
Then Tony’s organized crime case collides with Desi’s investigation, throwing them both into the path of something dark and sinister. Something that craves blood…
From the streets of Desi’s beloved Boston to the mountain desert of New Mexico, Desi and Tony must rely on God to thwart unseen forces–and save a young woman and her baby from a villain more evil than any of them can imagine.
Look for Reluctant Runaway today!
