Gay's Days February 7, 2015. A Hush in the Storm

Hello Saturday!


A beautiful day stretches before us in Houston. Fog vanished a few hours ago. I walked two miles yesterday and plan to repeat the process today. The stroll is perfect for reflection and prayer. Good for health too.


At night, I’ve been reading Hush in the Storm by Julie B. Cosgrove. Wow! I’ve wanted to keep reading and forget other responsibilities. This book intrigues me.


I’m into part two, so I haven’t finished the book yet, but up to this point, it is filled with romance, mystique and adventure. I can hardly wait to discover the “who done it.”


Jen, the heroine, a grieving widow, faces a shock of circumstances—starting with her husband’s friend kidnapping her. He fakes her death, and now she’s in for a ride of her life.


There’s a lot of detail about human trafficking in the second half of the book. Jen experiences the horror of seeing two young girls facing this terrible existence.  


From the review below, I find that I may not discover the answer until the sequel comes out.


Waiting for the next one is difficult. I have people tell me that about my Sarah Series, although each of the Sarah books are stand alone.

3.99 on Amazon.
Check prices before purchase.

This is a wonderfully written romantic suspense that keeps you guessing to the end. Victoria Pitts Caine
"Now I want to read the next one in the series!  dwight hayes
"Well written novel with an incredible story facing real life issues. Lynn Hobbs
 “This is a difficult book to describe, especially without giving away the mystery. The first half takes place over a week's time span, the second half entails months. This is not a "feel good" story, in fact, it touches areas that are true enough to be disturbing. Most of the general public is blissfully unaware of the scope of the issue tackled within these pages. Although the methods used here for countering this invasive blight are fictional, the description of the issue is spot on.

My biggest issue with this story is the non-ending hook into the next book. If you are looking for feel good fluff...keep looking. If you are looking for unsettling reality wrapped in fiction, this may be for you.” D. Marie
