CFBA: Beguiled by Deeanne Gist & J. Mark Bertrand

Song Stuck on the Brain: Maneater by Hall & Oates






This week, the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance is introducing:





Beguiled


by


Deeanne Gist


(Bethany House March 1, 2007)


and
J. Mark Bertrand





MY TAKE:

How can you possibly go wrong with a book by Deeanne Gist? Her story telling ability contines to impress me. Co-authoring with J. Mark Bertrand was just a bonus. Beguiled is an exciting and fast paced read and I hate to give away good endings. So, I'm just going to tell you it's worth the read.


ABOUT THE BOOK :

In the shadows of Charleston, someone is watching her... Rylee Monroe, a dogwalker in Charleston's wealthiest neighborhood, never feared the streets at night. But now a thief is terrorizing the area and worse, someone seems to be targeting her.



Reporter Logan Woods is covering the break-ins with the hope of publishing them as a true-crime book. The more he digs, the more he realizes this beguiling dogwalker seems to be at the center of everything. As danger draws ever closer, Logan must choose: Chase the girl, the story, or plunge into the shadows after the villain who threatens everything?
