“Right as Rain”

The Purple Knot will make you feel right as rain!
Raquel Byrnes, author, writes about Reyna Cruz, a spitfire of
a private investigator, and she’ll enjoy seeing you twist and
turn around the curves of this awesome novel.

After the death of her best friend, a death for which she’s blamed,
Reyna Cruz sets out to prove her innocence while digging
too closely into personal information that will expose the real killer.
On her journey, she is reunited with her childhood sweetheart,
but can they overcome the pain she caused him when she
left four years earlier?

Unable to come to grips with God’s handling of the loss
in their lives, Reyna struggles to resolve her faith issues as she
fights to save her relationship with the one and only man she’s ever loved. The man who finds it difficult to balance his emotions with her risk taking.

Just when you’re convinced the cops will step
in and cuff someone, you couldn’t be more wrong.
Ms. Byrnes has a way of leading you
astray in such a way, you never saw it coming.

Join me in reading this outstanding
Edge of Your Seat Romance by Raquel Byrnes:
First in the Shades of Hope Series
Happy summer reading…
