Editorial Reviews

Review

"An excellent novel, mixing romance and suspense in a highly believable setting. The story moves along at a fast pace with high suspense, the characters are authentic and interesting, and the facts unfold with clarity and plausibility. The author skillfully balances the underlying, simmering dangers of violence and deep emotions, and while the resolution to the mystery begins to surface, new dangers appear. This is a veritable page-turner that will keep readers at the edge of their seats until the unexpected, yet satisfying ending. Highly recommended!" The Columbia Review

"Samantha Cole's romantic suspense novel, The Friar, is a marvelous second-chance story about a young widow and the ex-con who walks into her life. Cole's main characters are strong, independent and ethical in their outlooks on life, and the reader can instantly understand why Reverend Stevens sent Adam to Heaven's Pastures, Sage's ranch. I had a grand time watching as Adam interacts with Sage, Evan and Maddie, and Sage's two children, and loved seeing him adapt to a very different culture than the one he was raised in. The Friar is a delight to read. There's tension and suspense around the stalker who's determined to wreak havoc on the ranch and its inhabitants that works quite well to keep the reader involved in the story. Cole also admirably addresses the automatic bias that many ex-convicts face after they've served their time, and the difficulty they have in being accepted back into society, as evidenced by the hostility of the local residents toward Adam. The Friar is most highly recommended." Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite

"This story resonated so much with me because I got married to an ex-seminarian, and as I read on, I couldn't help but think about the stories my husband shares about his vocation. The characters are real and the reader can feel as if they share the same world, thanks to Samantha Cole's gift of character and setting. The emotional intensity of this story deserves a whole commentary on its own. Yes, the characters have depth and readers will want to explore their inner worlds, feel their scars and heartaches, and experience what gives them the hope of freedom and purpose. The Friar is expertly plotted and excellently written, a delightful read that explores the themes of vocation, faith, love, and redemption. It is an emotionally charged story with great potential for entertainment." Divine Zape for Readers' Favorite

About the Author

A proud member of Romance Writers of America (RWA), Samantha A. Cole is a retired policewoman and former paramedic who is thrilled to add award-winning author to her list of exciting careers. She has lived her entire life in the suburbs of New York City and is looking forward to becoming a snow-bird between New York and Florida someday. Her two fur-babies, Jinx and Bella, keep her company and remind their mom to take a break from writing every once in a while to go for a walk, which is the best way to deal with a stubborn case of writer’s block. An avid reader since childhood, Samantha was often found with a book in hand and sometimes one in each. After being gifted with a stack of romance novels from her grandmother, her love affair with the genre began in her teens. Many years later, she discovered her love for writing stories was just as strong. Taking her life experiences and training, she strives to find the perfect mix of suspense and romance for her readers to enjoy. Her stand alone novel, The Friar, won the silver medal in the 2017 Readers' Favorite Awards in the Contemporary Romance genre out of more than 1000 entries. While the original planned stories for the Trident Security series have been completed, they have brought many opportunities for Samantha to spread her wings and bring her readers more characters and stories to love. Look for her new Trident Security Omega Team series, Doms of The Covenant Novella series, Blackhawk Security series, and more from the Malone Brothers series, in addition to several stand alone projects.
