Now I'm giving away Double Cross by James David Jordan

To enter your name in the drawing to win a copy of this book simply post a comment about someone you know who is looking for love, but doesn't even know what real love is, so they set themselves up to be hurt. If that's too hard to answer, then just post a comment about why you enjoy suspense novels.

I'll go first. The person who was looking for love was me as a teen, but I didn't know what real love was until I gave my life to Jesus when I was eighteen. But by that point I'd had my share of bad experiences. Anyway, hubby loved this book. It sounds like my kind of story so I'm sure I'll read it one of these days...

About the book:

Raised by a father who was a former Special Forces officer, Taylor is beautiful and brilliant and knows how to take care of herself. But she is haunted by her past and the sacrifice her father made to save her from a brutal rape when she was seventeen. After a controversial stint in the Secret Service, she has become the most prominent private security specialist in America. When she discovers the body of a former client's top assistant, all the evidence points to embezzlement and suicide. But Taylor has no way of knowing that her mother, who ran out when Taylor was nine, is about to reappear and lead her down a twisting path of danger and deceit. It's a road that won't end until they reach the spot where Taylor's father died-where Taylor learns some sacrifices can never be earned.

My husband reviewed this book (below):

When Double Cross begins, Taylor is living in the house with Simon Mason’s daughter, Kacey, and they are good friends. First, she discovers a body of a former client. Then Taylor’s mother shows back up in her life after being missing for about twenty years. Taylor wants to be loved, but she doesn’t know what real love is, so she is looking in all the wrong places and hooking up with people who use her just like she uses them.

The story has so much danger and intrigue combined with dizzying twists and turns that the reader is on edge waiting for disaster to happen. The author does such a fantastic job pulling you into the characters’ lives that you are blown away by some of the things that take place. He does an excellent job making you care about them, which is what makes the story so inspiring. This reviewer didn’t want the story to end but was satisfied with how things turned out. It’s impossible to not long for more installments in the series.

I love suspense novels because they totally carry me away from real life for just a short while. And I love them even better when they're Christian novels because then I can donate them to my church library when I'm done reading them.
I would love to be entered in your draw. Thanks.

Please enter me.
I know a gal (no name/relationship/hint to be mentioned) that is looking for love, but she doesn't truly love herself. She is lost in the world of material things and herself... she can't see past that to know how to truly love herself or someone else.
Praying for her though.... !

I've enjoyed other Christian authors who are said to compare to Jordan... love to read his work on my own to see if the rumors hold true!

I know someone who is in the middle of a divorce after 27 years of marriage. She is more interested in the physical side of the relationship rather than looking for true love and emotional support so much more critical to a relationship. For the past few months I have shared with her some probing questions and thoughts hoping she can begin to do some self-examination. I am still hoping she finds the love that is within her so she can find love outside of herself.

Please enter me in this giveaway. Thanks.

LuAnn said...

I have a friend who is so desperate to find some kind of male influence for her two little boys that she is constantly finding new men on line to chat with. She has met a few of them and so far, they mostly turn out to be loaded with baggage or have issues she can't and won't deal with (good for her on that point). I keep telling her to stop looking so hard and let it come naturally. She says she knows that, but she still continues.

I'd love to win this book!

I enjoy trying to untangle the mystery in a suspense novel and if there is some romance, it is even better. I also love seeing how Christian authors weave a faith message though their story which leaves me encouraged or uplifted. Thanks for the review!

I really enjoy suspense novels! I love being wrapped up in the mystery/dilema/action. Action suspense are the best, where you find yourself urging the character on and feeling as if you are running or fighting with that character.

Double Cross sounds great! I would love a chance to win this!
