Book description: "When Holly's secrets backfire, is the mess too big to unravel?
Holly Cramer has worked hard to keep the identity of her daughter's father a secret, shamed and embarrassed by the one-night stand. But when the police knock on her door searching for Creed Kershaw, she realizes his identity isn't as hidden as she thought. The fact that Creed is a person of interest in a recent drug-related murder only increases her humiliation.
When Holly's and Creed's paths cross, Holly is unsure whether to be terrified of him or trust him. His tenderness with their daughter makes her want to believe his story that he had nothing to do with the murder. Then she discovers that Creed has a connection to Leonard Miller-who killed both her sister's fiancé and her brother-in-law, and kidnapped her nephews-and things only become more complicated.
Will Creed lead them to the man who has plagued her family, or become another of his victims?"
My review: Twisted Innocence is the third book in the Moonlighters Series. I have really enjoyed this series, but this particular book was my least favorite. I enjoyed continuing the story and while it was very good, I just didn't think it was one of Terri Blackstock's best books. Even though this is the third book in the series the reader does not need to have read the first two books. Ms. Blackstock explains enough of what has already happened so that the reader will not be lost. I felt that Holly's story was not developed enough. I think her character could have had a little more depth. As usual with Ms. Blackstock's books you will be kept on the edge of your seat and quickly turning pages. If you are a fan of suspense novels with a tab bit of romance thrown in, this is a great series to read. I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from the publisher through the Booklook Blogger Program in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
Book description: "The old ways of having the "sex talk" just won't cut it anymore. Sadly, the number one place today's young people go to for answers about sex is Google. Meanwhile, kids view nearly 14,000 sexual references a year on television, and 70 percent of teenagers have encountered pornography on the Internet. If we want our children to know the truth about healthy sexuality, we need to create a comfortable climate of continual conversations.
Jonathan McKee will show you how to move beyond the initial awkwardness of this subject into an ongoing communication with your kids about God's amazing gift of sex. He equips you with what you need to talk openly about dating, temptation, porn, and purity, and you will find answers to tough questions and relevant Scripture on sexual issues.
It's normal for kids to be curious about sexuality, and they need to know that their parents are the most reliable source of information. Be the one your kids turn to on this crucial topic."
My review: "More than Just the Talk" is a wonderful resource for parents! Jonathan McKee presents astonishing statistics that help make you realize how important it is to have open communication with your children. Not only does he inform and convince the reader of the importance of talking openly with your children about sexual issues, but he gives tips and suggestions on how to talk with them while referencing Scripture throughout the book. I highly recommend this book to all Christian parents. I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from Bethany House publishers in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
