"Digitalis" Book Review

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Barbour Publishing, Inc.(January 1, 2011)
Ronie Kendig

Ronie Kendig is absolutely one of my favorite new suspense authors! I don't know where she comes up with this stuff but I hope she keeps bringing it because I just love her books! She has a style that just keeps me on the edge of my seat from start to finish. With this particular series I love how she is taking each member of this renegade team and devoting a book to each of them. It is giving us these amazingly different viewpoints on the various guys from the inside out. Cowboy is an extremely interesting guy who is dealing with lots of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder while trying to lead a "normal" life. I liked seeing how that affected every area of his life, even when he didn't want to admit it. The introduction of Piper to his life only complicates things, but who would've guessed that she might actually be hiding more secrets than he is... excellent book that just left me wishing the next book was out already!


Ronie has been married since 1990 to a man who can easily be defined in classic terms as a hero. She has four beautiful children. Her eldest daughter is 16 this year, her second daughter will be 13, and her twin boys are 10. After having four children, she finally finished her degree in December 2006. She now has a B.S. in Psychology through Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA. Getting her degree is a huge triumph for both her and her family--they survived!!

This degree has also given her a fabulous perspective on her characters and how to not only make them deeper, stronger, but to make them realistic and know how they'll respond to each situation. Her debut novel, Dead Reckoning released March 2010 from Abingdon Press. And her Discarded Heroes series began in July 2010 from Barbour with the first book entitled Nightshade.

This is the second book in the series.


Step into the boots of a former Marine in this heart-pounding adventure in life and love. Colton “Cowboy” Neeley is a Marine trying to find his footing as he battles flashbacks now that he’s back home. Piper Blum is a woman in hiding—from life and the assassins bent on destroying her family. When their hearts collide, more than their lives are at stake. Will Colton find a way to forgive Piper’s lies? Can Piper find a way to rescue her father, trapped in Israel? Is there any way their love, founded on her lies, can survive?
