Digitalis by Ronie Kendig

If you are looking for an action packed book - one that places you in the center of the event and involves you as if you were watching it take place before your very eyes - then you need to pick up a copy of Digitalis by Ronie Kendig.

Oh my goodness. I had no idea how good this book would be. I wanted to read it for a few reasons. One: the story sounded good. Two: I wanted to write about a special ops soldier but didn't have any experience and didn't know any personally. Three: A friend of mine recommended this author to me.

I'm not good at writing book reviews. If you want to read what this story is about, it's below. But I will highly recommend this book. This is actually Book 2 in the series, but I could not tell a difference. I was introduced to prior characters, but didn't feel like I needed to read Book 1 first.

I think I connected with Digitalis so well because I was thrown right into Colton's life - his reservations about getting to know this girl he was attracted to - his reservations about his "real job" and coming clean with her about that. I liked how I was reading a romance one minute and dropped in a thriller novel the next. The scenes were so stealth that we went from one character to the next, flawlessly, just like a reel at a movie.

I can't brag about this book or this author enough. As a matter of fact, I'm going to offer this book as an incentive to my current writing challenge. If you are participating in my TTIN Challenge, someone is going to be very lucky to get their very own copy of Digitalis.

Ms. Kendig is an author to watch and Digitalis is a story you don't want to pass up.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Ronie has been married since 1990 to a man who can easily be defined in classic terms as a hero. She has four beautiful children. Her eldest daughter is 16 this year, her second daughter will be 13, and her twin boys are 10. After having four children, she finally finished her degree in December 2006. She now has a B.S. in Psychology through Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA. Getting her degree is a huge triumph for both her and her family--they survived!!



This degree has also given her a fabulous perspective on her characters and how to not only make them deeper, stronger, but to make them realistic and know how they'll respond to each situation. Her debut novel, Dead Reckoning released March 2010 from Abingdon Press. And her Discarded Heroes series began in July 2010 from Barbour with the first book entitled Nightshade.



This is the second book in the series.



ABOUT THE BOOK







Step into the boots of a former Marine in this heart-pounding adventure in life and love. Colton “Cowboy” Neeley is a Marine trying to find his footing as he battles flashbacks now that he’s back home. Piper Blum is a woman in hiding—from life and the assassins bent on destroying her family. When their hearts collide, more than their lives are at stake. Will Colton find a way to forgive Piper’s lies? Can Piper find a way to rescue her father, trapped in Israel? Is there any way their love, founded on her lies, can survive?
