Editorial Reviews

From the Author

There are two authors named Valerie Hansen. This one writes Christian fiction only. If you get the wrong Amazon author page you will see a woman with short dark hair instead of a grinning blond. I'm the blond (well, light brown, anyway) check out valeriehansen.com

More About the Author

By now you have probably discovered that there are two - or three - of me. Well, not really. I'm the Valerie Hansen who writes Christian Romance, Suspense and Historical fiction. This is my maiden name and much easier to spell and remember than my married name. I've been published since the 1980s and have over 50 books to my credit, most of which were written as Valerie Hansen. You can visit my website www.ValerieHansen.com to read excerpts and will find virtually all of my books still available through Amazon.com. AND NOW ALSO MANY ON KINDLE - INCLUDING ONE I HAVE JUST REISSUED ON MY OWN! WAGES OF SIN is longer and grittier than my usual Love Inspired titles. Good thing it's on Kindle of you might have trouble holding up all the pages. :)

I'm thrilled that having my work on Kindle allows so many of my loyal readers to continue to find my books even after they're out of print.

I don't have a blog right now but do participate as a guest on others. Since I'm still working to complete the contract to write 7 more books for Love Inspired as well as an additional 8th, I hardly have time to breathe, let along blog! (I have just finished the 5th of the 8. Whew!)

(I can always find time for chocolate, though)

I've tried to add the awards each of my books has won to their individual listings but it's a really big job. Here's the whole list -- so far.

By M. Palmer on September 14, 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
Serenity series
Book 5

Some of the books in this series have been light on the suspense, but this is the second book in a row that is pretty intense as far as the suspense goes...

The Plot: Julie Ann Jones wants nothing more to do than work in a beauty shop, go to church, and maybe hang out with her good friend, Smith Burnett. Unfortunately, the Arkansas courts has another thing for her to do on her "to do" list, and that's serve on the jury. Smith Burnett doesn't want it anymore than she does, but they both find themselves serving on a murder trial - and their lives are in danger!

The Romance:
Well, we don't really expect the romance to be the focus in a suspense book, but the author does pretty good in convincing us that it's only a matter of time. I did enjoy the "confessions" near the end and how it all worked out. Actually, I LOVED it!!!

The Suspense:
Like I said, very intense. Julie Ann got on my nerves at times by acting like Nancy Drew. I think her final decision to disobey Smith's advise was a bit on the immature side, but it made for some good action...Still, the book kept me glued until the very last page! That makes it five stars - loved it!
