When the woman he loves, Allison Radcliffe, is killed, he devotes himself to tracking down the killers and making them pay for their crimes. He expected it to be a challenge. What he never expected was to find Allison very much alive shortly after her “murder”. As his anger and hurt mix with relief, Lincoln isn’t sure how he’s supposed to feel. One thing he does know for sure is that he and Allison will have to work together to stop a killer before she dies a second time - this time for good.

And now Caitlyn herself has miraculously survived a hit and run. Afraid for her life with nowhere to run, she reaches out to one of the victims’ husbands, Detective Josh Solomon.

A Glitter of Gold by Liz Johnson follows Anne Norris, who moved to Savannah, Georgia for a fresh start. Now her pirate-tour business is flagging and paying the rent requires more than wishful thinking. When she discovers evidence of a shipwreck off the coast of Tybee Island, she knows it could be just the boon she needs to stay afloat. She takes her findings to local museum director Carter Hale for confirmation, but things do not go as planned. Carter is fascinated with the wreck, the discovery of which could open the door to his dream job at a prestigious museum. But convincing Anne to help him fill in the missing pieces of the puzzle is no easy task, and working with Carter means that Anne will have to do the one thing she swore she’d never do again - trust a man.
Phil Robertson believes that little by little, generation by generation, America has allowed the lines of morality, decency, and virtue to be erased - that our values have disappeared as we began to believe the lies that God is dead, truth is relative, and unity is impossible. These lies have brought discord, division and protest, but Phil also believes that things can change. Writing with captivating storytelling and unflinching honesty, Phil shows how to make America a God-honoring nation once more - by dropping the ten central lies that rule our day and taking up the ten truths that will bring peace of mind, harmony, and prosperity back to our country. The Theft of America’s Soul by Phil Robertson is a wake-up call for all who desire to see our nation thrive, and it’s also an invitation to experience the life-giving, peace-filling, wholly-transforming love of God.
