Return To The Threshhold of Hope - Book 1
Life has been hard for Eli Drake. Betrayed by his best friend, ridiculed by the woman he had hoped to marry, and sought after by the law, he is running for his life. But that was a long time ago. Twenty years, to be precise.
And now a stranger arrives in town, just the day after a terrible murder, when Eli Drake is forgotten by most...
But the past always seems to have a way of catching up with us, and it is no different for the people of the sleepy town of Hope’s End. And this mysterious stranger seems bent on righting all wrongs and is not going to take any shortcuts.
Blessing in Disguise - Book 2
Enoch Deelan is now the mayor of Hope's End, and he is on the prowl.
Things are about to change for the town, and the first thing Deelan has to do is bring the killer of former Mayor Henry Simpson to justice. But that is easier said than done, especially when it looks like the girl he had once hoped to marry knows more than her pretty face would suggest, and thus, things can get pretty complicated.
But there is hope, even in Hope's End, although getting to the real truth, and to those issues in life that really matter turns out to be a pretty rough ride.
Heart's Set Free - Book 3
The pressure on Enoch Deelan intensifies as the city fathers of Hope's End are not as pleased with the new mayor as they had hoped, and they begin to wonder who is the man behind the mask. Then the circuit rider comes to town. More church? Both Deelan and Anne Simpson choose not to have any dealings with the man. After all, religion is not for them...or is it? They both find out it's not so easy to silence the voice of truth.
But new storms are brewing on the horizon, as dark individuals in Hope's End decide it is time to take matters in their own hands and strike back before Deelan finds out the awful truth.
Silent Surrender - Book 4
Coyote Reed is in dire straits, and about to lose his mind. Now that he finally found someone who seemed to genuinely care for him, he is ordered to kill once more. Deelan in the meantime makes a startling discovery, and it seems like all puzzle pieces begin to fall into place. What's more, his true feelings for Anne Simpson begin to show. But will he still get a second chance in love? Not if it is up to wicked George Eastman.
The banker of Hope's End fears his days are numbered if he doesn't take swift action. But God is working from behind the scenes, sometimes almost invisibly, yet always working out His good plans.
Echoes of Mercy - Book 5
