Forsaken By Shelley Ring GIVEAWAY!

Lara Blake is determined not to fall in love again, but her mother-in-law has other plans.

Naomi Blake used to care about God’s will for her life. Then her son died, and her faith with him. Naomi is on a crash course to take her own life next, but Lara isn’t so cooperative.

Lara loves Naomi desperately. She will not let the older woman go without a fight, and Naomi proves a worthy adversary. Lara believes if Naomi would just go back to church healing would begin.

Fighting the pull of death with the power of life, Lara realizes Naomi isn’t the only one who needs saving. Faith is not easy, but when you throw in a therapy Rottweiler, a knight in spit-shining armor, and a suicidal old woman, it’s downright scary. Lara almost has it figured out when Naomi seems to get her death wish. Have both women been FORSAKEN?

  10. Mary, I just saw your post. Thank you so much for your wonderful review!

    I loved writing about Naomi and Lara, and they became real people to me. Their struggle with each other and with themselves illustrates the lengths women will go to for each other, for love, and for faith.

    My next book is Ransomed, a Christian romantic suspense due out in January. It tells the story of a young woman who escapes a human trafficking ring to rediscover the love she barely remembers, only to realize exactly how far her captor will go to track her down.

    Thanks again for such a thoughtful review of Forsaken, Mary! I hope to meet all your readers again soon!
