Inspirational Fiction Mystery | Inspirational Fiction Romance

The day Sadie Thompson finds her high school student, Lexie, asleep in class and can't wake her is the day she realizes how entrenched a prescription drug ring is in her school. As Sadie is pulled into doing something about the growing problem, she becomes involved with Ethan Stone—a Texas Ranger who suspects the drug ring reaches far beyond the high school.

Helping Lexie recover from the overdose, Sadie feels she is making a difference—until the 16-year-old's best friend dies from the apparent mixing of various prescription drugs. Lexie doesn't think her friend took her own life, but her relationship with her Uncle Ethan is precarious and she doesn’t know if either he or Sadie will help her discover the truth.

loved the other three books in The Men of the Texas Rangers
series. Thank you for the giveaway.
Cindy Woolard 9:39pm September 21)

The way I've always understood it (being a strict Easterner who never set foot in Texas), the Rangers are the elite. The best of the best. A central character in many classic Westerns, lovely to see them updated. Congrats on the new book!
Marcia Berbeza 10:18pm September 21)

Severed Trust sounds emotional, beautiful and very memorable.
Thanks for this great feature.

your wonderful giveaway!

It's always interesting to learn about different unique
aspects of our country's heritage. Background information can
be really cool.

A beautiful Christian lady God put into my life. I love her work. I love the anointing on the books she writes. God bless and count me in.
Jane Squires 12:21pm September 22)

The Texas Ranger to me are a legend. It might have to do with the Lone Ranger when I was little. I would love to read this series.
Kai Wong 1:28am September 22)

I love reading about the Texas Rangers.
Rita Wray 10:12am September 23)

I worked a number of years at the University of Texas General
Libraries, where I learned a lot about the Rangers--there are
enough truthful stories to keep you writing about them for
years without ever needing to think up a single fictional
event. Heroes and rascals both populated their ranks.
Janet Martin 6:33pm September 23)

thank you
Brenda Hook 8:03pm September 25)

The Rangers sound so interesting and tell such a great story of the state.
Clare O'Beara 10:22am September 27)
