free copy of Healing Promises by Amy Wallace



I am happy to announce that author, Amy Wallace and her publisher, Multnomah Books, have given me a copy of her newest suspense/thriller, “Healing Promises”, to give away to one of the folks who leave a comment on this blog between May 16-18.
Like me, while reading, do you enjoy being scared while also meeting characters you care about?
This book is a thriller with some love and friendship stories among the serial kidnappings and shootings. The main character, Sara is an oncology doctor, and her husband, Clint, is an FBI agent so the scene is set for some intense and emotional events.
When Cliff’s life is hanging by a thread, after he is shot and faces an even more serious threat, a patient of Sara’s who is a wise man gives Sara profound advice: “God is still on His throne. And He is good. Always.”
The main characters are good people with foibles and flaws, which make them likeable. For me, all of the best characters in novels have flaws.
The author shares her insights into the creepy thoughts of a serial killer, as he carries out nasty plans, and hides and plots revenge. “Healing Promises” also gives readers an array of characters, each one with hopes and dreams of finding someone to love.
The book includes Sara’s medical practice which gave me a glimpse into the world of patients and doctors as they fight to heal and be cancer free.
I am a new enthusiastic reader of Amy Wallace and this is the first book I have read by her, in this Defenders of Hope series. The first book is “Ransomed Dreams”, a tale of Stephen Kessler, FBI agent, and Gracie Lang, a young woman seeking justice and healing, so if you are intrigued you can decide whether to start with “Healing Promises” or the earlier title. The author has a delicious chocolate colored website titled Heart Chocolate (she admits to being a chocoholic) at www.amywallace.com
Leave a comment on this post and be eligible to win the free copy of "Healing Promises". You will love reading it.

Healing Promises sounds interesting... I am a fan of Amy's writings and I especially enjoyed reading about Ransomed Dreams.
Either book is a good pick!

Great review! I love the line you quoted about God still being on His throne. An incredible man, just like Frank, lived those words during his battle with cancer. He and his family taught me much.

Thanks for being an enthusiastic reader! That's word chocolate to this chocoholic author. :-)
