The girls are back together again! In the past, Ivy and Raven have run home, chucked an alias, and ended up with the men of their dreams, but now what?
I just wanted to let my Christian Suspense fans know that I have started a new book in the Second Chances series. Because, of course, you can’t have a true series with only two books, right?
Although it’s been almost six years since Alias Raven Black was released, you don’t have to worry. Time stands still or goes fast or does whatever the writer wants, so… The story picks up only eighteen months after Raven’s adventure as a nanny in the Giordano family.
Running Home and Alias Raven Black have bold threads of grace and forgiveness woven throughout their pages, and the third book, tentatively called, Trial by Fire, which will bring Ivy and Raven (Brenna) back together again, is also a redemptive story. If you enjoyed the first two books of the series, you will like this one even more. I promise.
Raven, or Brenna, as she is now known, is living back in Chicago running an open-door art studio for homeless teens. She now has custody of her daughter Maria and half-brother Rico, and while that may be enough emotional turmoil for a young woman, there can always be more. Giordano lawyers are breathing down her neck trying to pull Rico back into the bosom of the Italian mobster family and in the midst of a fund raiser art show, a stranger shows up with ties to Brenna’s childhood past.
Ivy is dealing with a new marriage, new home, and the trial of Ace Anderson, the man who kidnapped her children back in Running Home. Set to testify against the man, she begins receiving subtle threats against her family.
With all that is going on with these two, it’s good they have their knights in shining armor by their sides. Samson is still an agent with the FBI and Thomas is working closely with Brenna to continue his P.I. business of finding and rescuing teenage runaways.
The thing is, Ivy and Brenna don’t always let their men handle the hard things for them. Sometimes, knowing a girlfriend has your back is the only way to deal with the kind of trouble that seems to follow these two around.
That, and a mutual trust in the God who rescued them in the past. New faith is definitely going to get tested in Trial by Fire.
I hope to have and am working toward a March release date for this new addition to the Second Chances series. So, if all things work out as I plan, Trial by Fire might be in your hot little hands before spring.
Wish me luck!
