Author: Urcelia Teixeira

Find the truth, or die trying!

A childhood tragedy almost destroyed his life. A tragedy everyone thought was just an accident.

So, Adam Cross rebuilds his life in a small coastal town on the East Coast, pastoring The Lighthouse mission. The close-knit community of Turtle Cove surrounds him, he has his beautiful wife, Ruth by his side, and the delight of their little girl, Abigail. And he has his faith. Life could not be more perfect.

Until another accident happens. Except, this time, all evidence indicates that something far more sinister is behind it.

And while Adam struggles to pick up the pieces once again, he sets off in search of the truth behind the accidents—oblivious to the danger that awaits him. But what he discovers during his soul searching journey far exceeds anything he could have ever imagined.

Lurking in the shadows is an enemy no one knew or saw coming. One who has been waiting decades to take what is his, to take revenge.

If you enjoy reading faith-filled suspense fiction that grips you from the first page, then you will love this inspirational, fast-paced Christian suspense! Full of mystery, twists and turns to keep you guessing until the very end, this first in series will not disappoint!

Ok, I know this is going to sound conflicting but I liked "Every Good Gift" by Urcelia Teixeira, but at the same time I was thinking I don't want to read this. But again that is because of the season in my own life. I lost my son in a hit and run on Nov 16 and not quite ok yet and the fire was a trigger as well.  I know that has nothing to do with the book but reading this book was a trigger for me. But, while saying that I had to  kept going back and picking up the book and reading a little more and before I knew it I was done with the book and wanted more. I cannot wait to read the next book in the next book in this series. I was glad to come across lots of scriptures as part of the storyline. In fact, I think if I was to give a Scripture theme for the book it would have to say it is definitely "And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.”II Corinthians 12:9. There are others verses used n the story but I think this verse applies to both of characters that have the most to overcome. 

I was given a complimentary copy from the author and Celebrate Lit and these opinions are my own.

She made her writing debut in December 2017, kicking off her newly discovered author journey with her fast-paced archaeological adventure thriller novels that readers have described as ‘Indiana Jones meets Lara Croft with a twist of Bourne.’

More from Urcelia

Many years ago God gave me a prophetic scripture through which He named me Hephzibah (meaning ‘My delight is in her’). Some time after that, life happened and for a long while I felt unworthy of that name.  But, God showed me grace in this area for the nearly ten years that followed and, although I never aspired to be a writer, I wrote my first ever book on a bucket list whim in December 2017. Somehow it evolved into a series, but, while writing the fifth book in my Alex Hunt adventure thriller series, I felt the Holy Spirit nudging and directing me into using my God-given talent for enhancing His Kingdom instead.  I obeyed and wrote the final book in that series, The Caiaphas Code, as my statement of faith before switching to writing Christian mystery and suspense instead.  Two days later, the idea for Every Good Gift was born and the day I finished writing the last sentence of this book, I heard the Lord whisper in my ear, Hephzibah, Hephzibah, over and over.  That has been the most noteworthy highlight of my short career so far: knowing that I have pleased God.

Every Good Gift is the first book in my three-book Adam Cross Christian Suspense series. I loved writing this book!  It’s a poignant but suspenseful tale about a young pastor who had lost both his parents in a car accident as a child, then faces adversity for the second time when a horrific accident claims the lives of his wife and daughter.  As he clings to his faith, searching for answers, he discovers his parents’ accident wasn’t an accident after all.  The more he digs for the truth, the more secrets he uncovers and the more he learns of his past, God’s grace, and ultimately, his gifting.  There are lots of twists and turns and a few tears along the way as the mysteries unfold.

This book went on to win the silver medal for Christian Fiction in the 2021 Illumination Awards.

 

May you be blessed with reading this book, just as I have been while writing it.

Silencing The Siren” by. Denise L. Barela Is a novel that clearly shows that you have to follow your heart sometimes even if it’s something that your families not happy with.
This is also a story that shows just because someone is different doesn’t mean that they don’t need and deserve respect and love like us. I really like this book and so glad it ended up the way I wanted it to. I cried tears at one time in the book , I really think I am turning into a crybaby lately  as these books all make me cry.

The narrator is such a fantastic reader. She brings the story to life.

"Endangered Refuge"by Sherri Wilson Johnson Book Tour and GiveAway

About the Book

Book: Endangered Refuge

Author: Sherri Wilson Johnson

Genre: Christian Contemporary Romantic Suspense

Release date: August 2, 2022

He wants to protect her. She wants to protect him. A powerful man with dark secrets may kill them both.

Undercover U.S. Fish and Wildlife Special Agent Dallas Heath has infiltrated one of the largest big cat illegal trading rings in the States. Now he must unearth vital evidence to bring down kingpin Mitchell Avery before the next litter of cubs crosses state lines. Multiple failed attempts have cost Dallas time and progress, and now he’s threatened with being pulled off the case. The clock is ticking for this seasoned officer. It doesn’t help that a life which includes deception and being apart from the only woman he’s ever loved makes him doubt if undercover work is for him.

Special Agent Elyse Bradford has spent the last three months undercover living next door to Mitchell Avery posing as a woman of great means and vying for an invite to one of his big cat auctions, to which only the most serious and authenticated buyers are invited. If only she could confide in her best friend and fellow agent Dallas, maybe he could help her devise a plan before her cover is blown.

If they’d been assigned to work the case together, they’d have already brought Avery’s organization down. But Dallas is working undercover somewhere too. Since they can’t share the details of their missions or their locations with each other, the former partners—torn apart by assignments too many times—must find another way.

After a strange twist of events propels them together again, hope’s flame flickers…until word spreads of a mole—either in Avery’s organization or within the USFWS. And now neither one knows who to trust. Can they even trust each other when they’ve been apart for so many years?

On a backdrop of Mobile Bay on the Gulf coast, Dallas and Elyse fight to save endangered tigers, keep their covers intact and bring down an enemy whose reach is far beyond what anyone imagined. After tensions rise and tempers flare—coupled with lies and manipulation from all around—they could lose everything they’ve worked for. Including each other.

Will they succeed on their mission without ripping apart their shot at a future together?

“Endangered Refuge” by Sheri Wilson Johnson is the 4th book of the series but all of the books can be read as stand-alones. This book really kept this reader on the seat of her chair. There is danger and twists at every turn of the page. This is a clean read.  I was given a complimentary copy by the author and Celebrate Lit and these opinions are my own.

More from Sherri

For as long as I can remember, I have been in love with Bengal tigers. As a young girl, I even tried to adopt one. In actuality, the “Adopt a Tiger” call was a call to sponsor one in a zoo. Sadly, my family wasn’t financially able to do that, but my love for tigers continued until…well, I’ll let you know if it ever stops. I’ve jokingly said that I will own a captivatingly beautiful tiger with a precious pink nose when I get to heaven. It’s not at all impossible, right? I mean, if the lion and the lamb will be friends, surely my afterlife-self can own a tiger. I’ve put in a request, so we shall see. The fact that I’m allergic to cats won’t hinder me then either!

 

Every year when we go to the local State Fair, I always make sure I’m there at the right time to see the tiger show. For $5, you can feed them by putting a piece of meat on the end of a stick. You can’t actually pet them or anything like that, though. I became aware a few years ago of the abuse these amazing creatures go through just by being carted around from town to town, put on display, made to perform. And the “pet a cub” opportunities are more harmful to the babies than you can imagine. When they get too big for the petting zoo, what happens to them?

 

Out of my love for tigers, I began researching to find the answer to that question. Out of that came Endangered Refuge, a reunion romance filled with mystery and suspense. Many of you have probably heard of television shows that give you a behind-the-scenes look at big cat sanctuaries only to discover later that they are fronts for trafficking them and selling their parts on the black market.

 

Here is where my hero and heroine enter. Special Agents Dallas Carter and Elyse Bradford are both undercover with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services working to shut down a big cat trader. Best friends since college, their work often takes them to different places around the country, but their physical separation never seems to separate their hearts. When they run into each other on the secret mission, neither one knowing that the other has been assigned to the case, sparks fly. But they aren’t always good sparks. Because someone is killing to protect a secret, it’s up to the two agents, posing as socialite Vivian Chandler and cat handler Dakota Heath, to expose the person who exploits these amazing creatures, so all power struggles and personal opinions must be set aside.

 

This is book four in my Jeopardized Reunionsseries, which is set in the Mobile Bay area of Alabama. This particular story is set in two places on the bay, in the Gulf Shores/Fort Morgan area and on the Fish River, which separates Fairhope and Magnolia Springs (the setting of book three in the series, Unfortunate Homecoming).

 

I hope you will consider checking out Endangered Refugeand the other books in the series, all set on Mobile Bay and all written as standalones. The common thread? They are all reunion romances. So while my characters have a past that tore them apart, they have the promise of a future.

 

I’d love it of you’d follow me on social media and join my subscriber list. I’m always excited to hear from readers!

"Gold Rush Bride Caroline" by Linda Shenton Matchett Book Tour and GiveAway

About the Book

Book: Gold Rush Bride Caroline

Author: Linda Shenton Matchett

Genre:Historical Romance

Release date:July 21, 2022

She thinks he’s high-handed and out for her gold. He thinks she’s difficult and money-hungry. Will they discover that love is the true treasure?

Scarred in a childhood accident, Caroline Vogel has yet to find a man willing to marry her, so she heads to the Pike’s Peak goldfields to pan enough ore to become a woman of means. When she and the handsome assistant trail boss hit it off, she begins to hope her future may not be spent alone. Then she catches wind of dark secrets from the man’s past, and she’s not sure what or who to believe.

Orphaned as a teenager, Oliver Llewellyn stole to survive, then used his skills for the army during the war. Nowadays, he applies his knowledge to catch dangerous thieves for the Pinkerton Agency, so guarding a young woman during a wagon train journey should be easy. But he didn’t count on the fact she’d angered a man bent on revenge. He also didn’t count on losing his heart.

 

Click here to get your copy!

"Gold Rush Bride Caroline" by Linda Shenton Matchett  is the second book in the "Gold Rush Brides"series. I have enjoyed both books and each can be read as a standalone but once again I am glad I read them both to get the full story since the characters are from the same family.  These books are clean romances and short easy reads. I am finding I like these short books that can be read in one settings a lot more than I did in the past. There is one character that I wished would have heeded the Gospel message instead of ignoring it, but it is "Real Life".  I admire female characters that are courageous and brave but then realize that they need others in their lives. This is a story about someone being hired as a protector  uncover but ends up falling in love with his charge. 

I was given a complimentary copy from the author and Celebrate Lit and these opinions are my own.

More from Linda

Dear Readers,

 

Have you ever heard the quote about Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers that says, “Sure he was great, but don’t forget that Ginger Rogers did everything he did, backwards…and in high heels?” Originally seen in a 1982 Frank and Ernestcomic strip, the line has been used by many people from comedians to politicians.

 

A slight twist on the statement can be made about women in the centuries before modern attire allowed them to wear slacks…they did everything men did, but in floor-length skirts (to say nothing of when they had to wear corsets!). A few examples include cooking over an open hearth, hauling water before the invention of pumps and indoor plumbing, farm work such as milking cows or gardening, and riding a horse.

 

One of my favorite aspects about writing is developing the characters, especially the female protagonists. Mine are typically…well, untypical. The gals in my books are war correspondents, mechanics, spies, doctors, pilots, and midwives, just to name a few. While thinking about what to write next, I stumbled on an article about female prospectors, and I knew I had my story. The few images I found confirmed my suspicion. These women prospected alongside the men,  swirling their pans of silt hour after hour…all while wearing a dress.

 

I continued to dig and was delighted to find journals and diaries of these stalwart women who either followed their husbands, brothers, or fathers to the gold field or actually set out on their own. The first book in the series, Gold Rush Bride Hannahtakes in northern Georgia during the rush of 1829 when more than one million dollars of gold was unearthed.

 

Today’s tour book, Gold Rush Bride Caroline, is about Hannah’s daughter and takes place during the 1859 Pike’s Peak Gold Rush in Colorado. I hope you enjoy Caroline’s story.

 

Blessings,

Linda Shenton Matchett

"It Never Occurred to Her" by Michelle Jester Book Tour and GiveAway

About the Book

Book: It Never Occurred to Her

Author: Michelle Jester

Genre: Contemporary Religious Fiction, Women’s Religious Fiction, Contemporary Christian Fiction

Release date:November 28, 2021

It Never Occurred to Her by Michelle Jester

For two years Gabriel has followed every lead, no matter how small, in the hope of finding his wife who has been kidnapped. He and the police always seem to be one step behind, until investigators give him information that helps him launch the plan to find her.

When Lena looks up into the eyes of her husband, who she hasn’t seen in two years, she is humiliated and wants nothing more than to run before he recognizes her. And so she does. It’s only when she faces a desperate situation that she is forced to return and ask for his help.

As fate twists its way through both of their lives, they realize it doesn’t matter how much they have prepared to face the realities of losing someone, or finding them again, redemption is in letting go of the past and finding a future just off the beaten path.

 

Click here to get your copy!

"It Never Occurred to Her" by Michelle Jester is a “Wow” book. I really felt Lena’s pain as I read this book. This is a story of A person leaving God and believing He left them.  This is a book about rape and sex-trafficking and there is violence described but it isn’t overly graphic, and homeless people. This story clearly points out that we can have joy even when we are going through hard troubles. This novel shows that God works good in someway even when things seem impossible. I don’t remember reading any other book by this author but after reading this one I am on the look out for other books by her. I had to keep reading this story in one setting because I had to know how it ended and the ending was fantastic. It was quite different than I thought it would be. 

I was given a complimentary copy by the author and Celebrate Lit and these opinions are my own.

About the Author

Michelle Jesteris the bestselling author of fiction novels, as well as contributing author to the nonfiction #1 bestseller, My Labor Pains Were Worse than Yours. She also writes nonfiction and children’s books. Michelle lives in Louisiana with her husband, high school sweetheart and retired Master Sergeant.

More from Michelle

When I first started writing this novel, it was because of a dream I had. I woke in the middle of the night crying, sweating, and praising God. I immediately got up, went to my computer and started writing about the dream. I was weeping the entire time and barely able to see through my tears.

In the dream, I was homeless, alone, and had drifted from God. I was hungry and went into a food kitchen to eat. I was dirty, smelled terrible, and missed Larry so much, only I knew I could never go home. I had done too much and had too much done to me to ever make it back to him.

After the person in the food kitchen put the food on my plate, I looked up and it was my husband, Larry. I was humiliated and desperately didn’t want him to recognize me. I was about to leave when in the dream Larry’s face turned to Jesus and He said, “I have been looking for you.”

That dream became the cornerstone of this novel.

“Bobby’s Girls by John R.Price is a story about Christian actors and how compromising impact impact the Christian life. I really liked this story. It is a short read. I read it in one setting.
This book has lots of Biblical Scriptures as part of the plot. I didn’t look them up but am going to later today. I really like that the characters apologize and really make a turn for the better.
 
This is a clean story but the television show that is the plot of this novel has alcohol usage and sexual tones and jokes.


I know this one fact is a minor issue, but the characters are already getting hit with rumors of not being actual Christians and the two husbands go to a bar( a sports bar) and one of them drinks a beer to discuss the problems. It just seems to me that they would not do anything to bring more condemnations on their family. I know this is a judgment call on my part.
 
This is the author’s first book and I will be on the look out for other books written by him.

 I was given a complimentary copy from the author and Celebrate Lit and these opinions are my own.

About the Author

John R. Price is a Christian, loving husband, college teacher, and writer in Central Arkansas. For over 40 years, he has loved watching classic television and following the entertainment industry as a hobby. He also enjoys studying Christian apologetics. He is married to Anna, his wife, who helped edit his first Christian novel, “Bobby Girls: A Novel.”

 

More from John

I wrote the book as a Christian response to a well-known actor starring in a popular television show reboot. I thought the topic would be an interesting fictional exploration what actors and fans should consider when a TV show seems to compromise an actor’s values.

 

I chose the Dallas metroplex as the main setting because I have visited the area several times. As a child in the early 1980s, I remember watching two Dallas TV stations on cable TV.
