Redemption of a Cavalier by Kathy Otten
Redemption Of A Cavalier - Kathy Otten

Kathy Otten has done an amazing job with this short story. It takes place during the civil war. It is a story about love, forgiveness, and finding your way home. I would love to read a whole book on this story. Steve Wojtas narrates this story and really brings it to life.

 

Wesley and Abby were in love before the war and to be married. Wesley was unable to save Abby's brother during a battle and blamed himself, On a chance meeting with Abby right before a battle, he learns that she does not blame him, that she still loves him and that they have a son together. While trying to save them he is shot. He is saved and Abby is there when he awakes. Wesley now just needs to forgive himself.

 

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Wonderful fable that happend to push some of my buttons.
Redemption in Indigo - Karen Lord,Robin Miles

I loved the style of this story. It's very artificially told as a campfire tale, by an omnipotent narrator who keeps weaving all over the place. It's going for charming, and it hits it right now the nose. I think my favourite part was how little the narrator cared about a sense of place (people take long mule trips, then end up being late and hop on a bus), it's in no time and no country in the way a fairytale is, but more so because it's clearly told by a modern person, while at the same time it's clearly not about a real place, while at the same time, the sense of culture and place is incredibly strong. That was a lot of balls to have in the air on a first novel, and Lord caught them all, easily.

 

The story, without spoilers, is about god-like spirits quarrelling and involving humans as proxies, to some extent. It's more about the powerful manifestations of human qualities like opportunity and forbearance, in a somewhat metaphorical, and somewhat whimsical plea for both balance and compassion (I've been reading a lot of Le Guin, and this reminded me of the Taoism she employs). It's all very whimsical, and often surprisingly moving.

 

All that said, one of the sort of clown characters is someone with an eating disorder, and though the book noted that it was a mental health issue, it did so after it made him the butt of a lot of jokes for the first four or five chapters. It was... not my favourite part of the book.

Great story in a great series
A Dream of Redemption - Bronwen Evans

I have enjoyed this series and looked forward to this book. I was not disappointed. Helen and Clary are lovable characters that we met in earlier stories. It takes place a few years after the last one. Helen learns about the unfairness in her world and wants to make a difference. Together with Clary, they help orphans as their love grows. Clary's secret past is an obstacle for him, and then all the danger around makes them choose what is most important to them. I highly recommend this story and the series.

I received a copy of this through Netgalley, and this is my unsolicited review.

Truth Or Fiction? Reagan’s Redemption by Cate Beauman @CateBeauman
Reagan's Redemption - Cate Beauman
 

 

Reagan’s Redemption by Cate Beauman is Book Eight of The Bodyguards of L A County Series. I have read One through Seven and Reagan’s Redemption really blew me away.

 

We start off with this awesome cover by Demonza

 

Reagan's Redemption (The Bodyguards of L.A. County, #8)

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Man, oh man, I read a lot of romantic suspense and Cate Beauman has to be up there with the best of them. Right off the bat, Cate has me teary eyed, with throat tightening emotions threatening to burst forth, when Reagan deals with a terrible loss in the Emergency Room.

 

That is how she ends up in the back woods of Black Bear Gap, a coal mining town in Kentucky, working as a doctor for The Appalachian Project. And…of course we must have security. Enter, Shane, a newbie at Ethan Cooke Security, there to protect her.

 

I love Cate Beauman’s characters, who often make cameo appearances in other’s stories, and I knew I would love Reagan and her friends too. I so look forward to seeing how she overcomes her hardships, meets the hunky guy who will fall in love with her and risk his life to protect her, and how she survives the danger that I am sure is coming her way.

 

Suspicion, prejudice, and oh so much more are standing in the way of Reagan being able to help the people with their medical needs. When Henry makes his evil entrance, it takes them a while, with the help of the Bodyguards in L A, to figure out what’s really going on.

 

I love that it takes place in the hills and it reads as if it could, would, or has been true. Innocent, hard working people are being treated wrong and someone comes in, risking everything, to make it right. Bullets fly, people die and I wonder where it will all end.

 

Cate really got a lot of emotions going in me, because I feel this really did happen to workers in the mining industry and I see no reason why people are still crawling underground, digging out the last remnants of an obsolete form of energy…other than greed.

 

I love Reagan’s makeshift family and their storybook life, but when real life danger butts its ugly head in…my heart falls to my gut and I wonder where Cate is taking this. How could Shane…well…enter Chase…WTH Cate?????

 

Reagan’s Redemption is not your run of the mill romantic suspense novel…girl in trouble meets hunky guy, saves her, falls in love, rebuff each other, admit defeat, and, well, you know, they live happy ever after.

 

The mystery, suspense, and danger come in waves, at times like a tsunami, threatening to overwhelm me. I LOVE IT!!!!!

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Reagan’s Redemption by Cate Beauman.

Rainmakers rule – but nothing influences another man more than two bullets in the back of the head. 

A beautiful, ambitious woman is murdered. No one would have noticed if the person charged was anyone other than a lobbyist — one of the most powerful deal-makers in the world.

Ozzie is pulled into to help prove the egomaniac’s innocence. Early on, the evidence seems irrefutable…until it isn’t. Could who this man knows determine who lives and who dies?

Ozzie uncovers damaging information. His immediate reaction? Rage. The lobbyist had played a key role in helping destroy Ozzie’s old life. So how can Ozzie now help the man avoid a murder charge?

Forced to make a deal with the devil, Ozzie must determine how to out think the king of rainmakers. And that’s when Ozzie realizes this isn’t just a one-lane game. 

Ozzie flexes his own power of persuasion to fight through the haze of threats and outright danger. With everything on line, Ozzie’s instincts take him to the brink of death.

In the end, innocent people will die. Can Ozzie save his family from something he can’t see?
