Then you can enter the draw HERE.  Remember to tell us which of her books you would like to receive.

The draw will be on Thursday, November 30 at 9 PM EST when I will choose one name from among the comments. Each person gets one chance. That’s just two days away!  

Janet has the ability, it seems, to pull you right into the story and you want to know what’s going to happen next. Even if you think this is not the genre you would enjoy you might be surprised, or if you are sure it’s not for you I bet you know someone who would love it. Soooo … you can send them over so they can enter the draw.   🙂    Okay, enough persuasion.

On another topic, it snowed this morning. This isn’t the first snow this season but a lot of it stayed on the ground this time. Roads were very slippery this morning, as they always are with the first snows. I can’t deny it any longer. Winter is extending her long cold fingers to make me shiver, just a reminder that winter is coming and in a month it’s officially that season.  Well, on the cheery side of things … spring is only four months away! 

 

 

Are you ready for winter?

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!  🙂

Book: Without Proof: a Redemption's Edge novel
Author: Janet Sketchley
Publisher: Janet Sketchley
Genre: Christian suspense
Date: October 10, 2015
Pages: 308
Price: paperback, $12.99
My rating: a suspenseful story of hope

I won this book from the author and, very late, I’m posting my honest review.

Without Proof is book three of a trilogy by Canadian author Janet Sketchley. Even though it is the third in the series, the author gives enough information so that the first two books are not necessary for the reader to easily follow and enjoy the storyline. This novel can stand on its own. (I read and reviewed the first book, Heaven’s Prey, HERE, if you would like to check it out.) I haven’t read book two, Secrets and Lies, but would like to purchase it and find time to read it later.

In Without Proof a young woman, Amy, is recovering from serious injuries she suffered in a plane crash two years before. Her fiancé, Gilles, did not survive it, so she is left alone and grieving. Her fiancé’s Aunt Bay takes her in, and his best friend, Michael, helps out however he can. Michael also has an art business, so Amy helps manage it while struggling with her memories, physical pain, and emotions, including her growing feelings for Michael.

Janet Sketchley’s writing style is easy to read and enjoy. She pulls the reader right into the story, meaning that once into the story the reader doesn’t want to leave until the end. In this novel, there is suspense and enough going on to keep the reader interested in trying to figure out who is doing what to whom. Someone leads Amy to believe the plane was sabotaged, and in trying to find out the truth Amy places herself in danger. There are threats, break-ins, mysterious people, and enough drama to keep the pages turning in anticipation. And, of course, there are surprises – events that occur to keep up the level of suspense.

God is front and center in Aunt Bay’s life, and yet Amy isn’t sure how God fits in her own life or even if He does. Without Proof is written without profanity, is not preachy or “religious” – although there is a hopeful message – and is a story that leaves the reader satisfied. In the back of the book, there are even discussion questions that are great for a study group or a book club.

Without Proof was a finalist is the Word Awards (Suspense Category).
