I know, I know-it’s been a long time since my last post. I’ll spare you the details but let’s just say it’s been a little crazy in my little corner of the world. I am jumping in to spotlight a quick review and do an even quicker giveaway!
Over the last year I have done a number of book reviews-mostly non-fiction, cooking, or crafting. When The Shadow, by Kimberly Rae, popped up I jumped at the chance to try my hand at something a little different. Part action, part suspense, and part romance, The Shadow has a little something for almost anyone. While it is fiction, it is deeply woven with a real life issue and a ministry (www.rahabsrope.com) that helps support at-risk women and victims of sex trafficking. This combination of fiction and non-fiction comes together in a great bit of story telling.
I’m not going to give away the plot or story line (but will give a copy away at the end of this post!), however, I will tell you there are enough twists and turns along the way (a stalker, the drug trade, the FBI and a hunky former marine to name a few) that will keep you from putting the book down. Rae does a masterful job of keeping the reader on the hook waiting to see what comes next.
Reading along you feel the frustration her protagonist (Meagan Winston) feels with the stumbling blocks along the way and you also get a sense of the passion it takes to run a ministry that requires nerves of steel. The incredibly important work that goes on to combat the evils of the trafficking trade are brought to light through Rae’s writing, though it isn’t the main plot line (I promise, this isn’t a spoiler!). You will find yourself rooting for the main characters as they make their way through this jam packed journey.
I encourage you to visit Rahab’s Rope to learn more about the vital work they do and what we can do to support them. I also encourage you to pick up a copy of The Shadow for a good read!

Now, for the giveaway!
I have a copy that I will give away to one lucky reader. Please leave a comment below with the names of your favorite fictional couple and you’ll be entered. Easy peasy. This will be a quick one and will close on December 26, 2017 so I can pop it in the mail to you for a little New Year’s reading :). One entry per person and please note that no comment field will be visible to readers-you comment comes directly to me 😉
As always, my views are my own. Life is too short so I only pick the good stuff to write about (and give away from time to time!). I am not paid for my endorsements or reviews. A huge thank you to BlogAbout Network for generously providing a review and giveaway copy of The Shadow.
