More About the Author

Revealing secrets of the Kingdom, one story at a time . . .

Born and raised in Vincennes, Indiana, Jamie is a preacher's daughter. Road trips with her dad--to and from Bible studies across Indiana--were filled with talks of things beyond earth's bounds - creation and the fall, God and Jesus and the rapture, the earthly walk compared to the spiritual walk, and how we are born for more than what we can see or touch.
The highlight of those nights was stopping at a truck stop in the middle of the night where her dad would spend a little of the offering basket on two slices of pie and a couple of Cokes. Nothing ever felt so special as a middle of the night slice of pie with her dad. And nothing could stop the writing pouring out of her.

Poems, short stories, skits and song lyrics later, Jamie grew up and married. When her eldest son turned five she decided to try her hand at novels. Snow Angel was released by B&H Publishing Group in September 2007 and won the USA Book News "Best Books 2007" Awards winner, and 2008 RITA Awards® Best First Book finalist. It was the beginning of her dream career. Jamie has since written several books to great acclaim. Her first novella, a Christmas novella, The Snowflake, is scheduled to release October 2010.

Jamie and Tony have been married for twenty-two years and live in Indianapolis, Indiana with their three sons and a giant of a dog named Leo.

If she could only say one thing to her readers it would be, "Live the dreams God has destined you for!"

If you are familiar with Jamie Carie's books, this will be something a little different. As one who loves Jamie's historical take in her writings I wasn't sure how I would like this contemporary novel. I was pleasantly surprised.

The story line is well written and developed and will throw you for a surprise as you begin to learn more about the characters. Jamie takes you on a roller coaster ride where you will like a character, then hate the character, then like them once again.

At the end of the day you will see how Madeline has to learn to trust God and believe Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Personally as a guy I like her historical books with the action, mystery, and intrigue better, but this is book is certainly worth the read.

A fun, light-hearted read with tear-jerking moments at just the right pace. The situation of Maddie and her son living with her parents hits home with me; I have a grown daughter and grandkids living with me. RUSH TO THE ALTAR has broad appeal for both generations. Highly recommended.

My Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Disclaimers: I received a copy of this novel for review from the author in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not obligated to write a good review nor did I receive any compensation for writing this review.

An Overview of the Novel: Madeline's husband just died and she's devastated, but her friends and family are right, she needs move on. She just can't.

That's where Jake Hart enters the scene. Something about Madeline draws him. She's made it clear that she's not ready to date again, but Jake isn't about to take now for an answer. But then Madeline gets mixed up in the middle of a crime investigation and suddenly it might not be such a good idea for Jake to be around her.

My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: Jaime Carrie has a way of creating characters that catch your attention. I loved the characters in this novel from the first page to the very last page. Jake and Madeline had excellent chemistry.

The writing was cute, a little cheesy, but cute. I loved how Jamie developed her novel. She's always been a skilled writer and certainly knows how to craft her story.

This novel had elements of suspense but I wouldn't classify it as suspense. And while, the events that happened in this novel might have been unrealistic and a little bit unbelievable at times, I still really liked the novel.

It was a cute read and one that had me laughing and smiling the entire time I was reading it. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to fans of this genre.

So why 3.5 stars? It was a cute, funny, enjoyable read that left me entertained and amused. Jaime's writing was incredible and I loved the story.

In Summary: Jamie has done it again. She's written another novel that I loved reading.

In this fun contemporary love story Jamie Carie takes us down a different path than her Christian Fiction books but you can tell she still has put all of her amazing writing skills into this one just like all of her previous books. So kick back, put your feet up and lose yourself in this exhilarating tale.

Madeline "Maddie" Goode has been through so much in the past year having lost her husband to an auto accident. Since she had been a stay at home mom to Max their two year old son, she now has to find a job because they cannot live forever with her parents whom she was forced to go live with after Brandon's accident.

When Sasha, Maddie's best friend calls and invites her to an Indiana Racers' basketball game, Maddie politely tells her no thanks, because Maddie just wasn't into that at all. Sasha being the type of friend who always seems to know what to say or do to make Maddie feel better, convinces her to go. Could this be the night her whole life will change?

Maddie is having a good time getting caught up in the all of the hoopla and cheering and she finds she is glad she let Sasha talk her into this outing. While there she runs into another friend from her high school days who convinces her to join her dance troupe that is doing a routine for some unprivileged kids. What was supposed to be a small dance number in a little room away from the public eye turns out to be a disaster that was moved onto the basketball court with live television cameras. Talk about EMBARRASSEMENT! And to make things worse before the night was over Maddie was assaulted by the man who had arranged for the dance troupe's performance and after she was rescued from the enraged man she was offered the job of a lifetime working for the team's foundation as a charity coordinator.

I have read every book Jamie Carie has written over the years and she always does a fantastic job with inspirational historical stories. I love the way she writes from the heart.
She has taken on a new style with writing a modern contemporary inspirational romance.
She has done a fantastic job on her venture into this area of fiction.
Madeline (Maddy) and Jake's story is a simple story that brings loss, heartache, betrayal, and discovering a new love all together to make this first book of hopefully many more in modern contemporary romance for Jamie Carie to show her readers a new style of writing for her to challenge herself to do.
I started reading it and did not want to put it down.
Just remember if you have read Ms Carie's historical stories, don't try to compare this story to those. This is a whole new style of writing for Ms Carie and she has done very well with it.
