A Case of a Heart

Posted on Updated on

71MnBnTOKAL

This the second novel I have read from Author Kathryn Daugherty. From the moment I first started reading it the story drew me into the heartache and dilemma the protagonist Carol Matthews is thrown into shortly after her only brother Jim dies in a traffic accident. Carol has helped him raise his son after the lose of their parents and his wife since his son Jeff was five months old. Four months after his death Carol is served with court papers petitioning the court to remove Jeff from her custody and be placed in the custody of Jeff’s maternal grandparents. Everywhere she turns for help, the answer is no. Now the only chance she has to keep custody of Jeff is to put her trust in a down on his luck lawyer, Donovan Delaney.
The story is intense on how fragile life can be and how faith is the only thing that stables the chaos from crushing one’s soul.

DeBois Series Review

Posted on Updated on

I received this review of my DeBois crime murder mystery series from one of my fans in Des Moines, Iowa.DeBois book set

I promised to write a review about the books I just read.
I just finished reading the five books of the DuBois series
By author Sue Raymond:
It’s a series that involves murder, crime, espionage, love,
Religion, family and mystery. You start with book one and it’s so good you can’t put it down and leaves you wanting more.
It’s also about different areas like, New York and Iowa and the sites around Iowa. I recommend these books to anyone who loves to read.
