This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every moring: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion saith my soul: therefore will I hope in him. The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. Lamentations 3: 21-26

Daniel's Den

Daniel's Den by Brandt Dodson


Edited to ad the book giveaway is closed. Judy of Apron Strings and Other Ties that Bind is the winner. Congratulations!!


Glass Road Public Relations sent me Daniel's Den for review at the end of last week. From press releases:

In this fast–paced thriller Daniel Borden, a young government accountant learns to trust God when his life begins to fall apart and unseen enemies pursue him with relentless zeal.

Borden is a thirty–year–old government accountant who lives a quiet life and plays by the rules. But when events transpire that shatter his orderly world and a team of assassins mark him for death, Daniel must flee for his life.

Laura Traynor had the perfect life until her husband's early death to cancer left her with a barely profitable bed-and-breakfast, a mountain of debt, and a young son to raise alone. Now she fights each day to stay afloat and to repel the man who keeps coming by and offering to purchase her place. Something about him doesn't quite seem right...

As they try to unravel the mystery that confronts them, they discover how tenuous life can be and how their very existence depends on the God who will never abandon them.

A perfect suspense tale for readers who love Dee Henderson, James Scott Bell, Brandilyn Collins, and James Patterson.




Dodson's attention to detail and descriptive style draw a reader into the scene quickly. His writing is fast-paced and moves you quickly from character to character.

Both Laura and Daniel have had great losses and lean years throughout their lives. They each reached a place where they thought they had it all. But will they have enough faith to carry them through danger, trials and a common enemy? Where is God in the midst of all this and will they find Him?

I was supposed to receive two copies of Daniel's Den,one for me and one for a giveaway but only received one. I'm offering the one I have for a giveaway. I'm posting the reveiw on my Joyful Days Reviews & Recipes blog also. Leave a comment on either post to enter the giveaway.

I will announce the winner Friday morning, February 20th.

Hi Julie,

I emailed my address to you. I did late last week, also. I guess that email got lost in cyberspace.

Please let me know if you receive it.

I'm really glad to have won the book. Thank you.
