Action, Danger, Personal History, and Romance—What's Not to Love?

Okay, nothing makes my heart sing like good suspense... UNLESS it also comes with locales I'm familiar with and an unexpected twist or twenty. Karen Randau's Into the Fog, the first book in the Peach Blossom Orchard series. Don't let the series title fool you, these books promise some spine-tingling adventures!

Karen and I discussed her books (she even has an audiobook for audiobook lovers), what she loves about writing, and even some of what she loves to read. Add to that her experiences with PTSD and let's just say that I've been aching to get my hands on the time to read this book and it's FINALLY here. Into the Fog has a killer opening and I don't want to miss a single word. So, whenever I get a moment on my drive across the US next week, I plan to sneak a chapter or three myself!

Love and danger spar in this thrilling romantic suspense

Hands push Marie Jessica (“MJ”) Goodrich from a rural roadway into an icy creek. The clock is ticking for her pleading friend on the other side of the ravine.

Running from flashbacks of a life-altering attack in Afghanistan, MJ takes refuge with her mother, managing Peach Blossom Orchard. But peace is elusive in a rural Oklahoma town full of secrets.

After losing his wife and children in a fatal car crash, Josh Rivers doubts he deserves a second chance at love. He can’t believe his bad luck when MJ, the woman who plagues the nightmares of his military service in Afghanistan, shows up in his hometown. She claims a driver ran down and abducted her friend Kelsey. Frustrated with the county sheriff’s investigation, MJ and Josh partner to follow clues that lead to a kidnapper who demands a bizarre ransom.

With danger increasing for everyone MJ loves, will the clock run out before they solve the mystery? Find out how MJ and Josh—swirling in a whirlwind of mystery and suspense—lean on their mutual faith to find answers, courage, forgiveness, healing … and wholesome romance.
