Please pray for my author friend Sara Mills and support her family by buying her books. If you enjoy historical fiction and movies like Casablanca, you'll love her stories.
Here is a picture of me with Sara in Dallas, Texas in Sept. 2008. Sara was my roommate for the past two years at the American Christian Fiction Writers annual conference. Sara is a great friend and awesome lady. I truly love and admire her and *gasp* she doesn't even like chocolate.
Sara Mills, whose new book Miss Match (to follow the first release, Miss Fortune) from Moody Press, has just lost her husband to a heart attack. Please pray for her and her three children as her friends rally together to help her promote her new book during this difficult time. You can find more info about Sara at http://www.saramillsbooks.com/.
Miss Fortune and Miss Match are delightful books set in NYC in 1947. Here is a more info about them.
FBI agent Jack O’Connor receives a letter from Maggie, a woman he used to love, saying she’s in trouble in Berlin. The FBI refuses to get involved, so Jack asks Allie Fortune to help him investigate. Allie and Jack pose as a missionary couple who want to bring orphans back to the United States.
A child finds important documents that everyone in the city—Soviets and allies alike—want for themselves. Maggie refuses to tell Jack what the documents are, saying if things go wrong, they are better off not knowing.
Through the course of the search, Allie’s past has been brought back to her, half a world away from home.
In 1947 Allie Fortune is the only female private investigator in New York City, but she's kept awake at night by a mystery of her own: her fianci disappeared in the war and no one knows if he's still alive. Until Allie finds out, she will have no peace. When there's a knock on her office door at four in the morning, Allie suspects trouble as usual, and Mary Gordon is no exception. Mary claims someone is following her, that her apartment has been ransacked, and that she's been shot at, but she has no idea why any of this is happening. Allie takes the case, and in the process discovers an international mystery that puts her own life in danger.
Meanwhile, the FBI is working the case as well, and she is partnered up with an attractive, single agent who would be perfect for her under other circumstances-if only she knew whether her fiance was still alive.
If either of these books interests you, run out and get a copy and help an author friend. Thanks!
