Murder Comes By Mail

MurderComesByMailThe man wanted to die. Michael stopped him. The last thing the man Michal saved said was, “you’ll wish you pushed me.” And after opening a letter addressed to him, Michael was wishing that he wasn’t strong enough to stop the man, or that he hadn’t gotten there in time, or better yet, he was nowhere near the bridge.

But he was.

You’ll wish you pushed me, the man had hissed, laying on the cement, still alive.

Michael did. With all his heart, he wished he did.

Brazen by Leeana Tankersley

Ok, so, this is kinda embarrassing, but I published my ‘U’ post on the wrong day and got all mixed up. And true, Brazen does not start with a ‘V’, but the due date for the review is today and since I was messed up with my U, I didn’t get my V done. Sorry!!!!

“Leeana,” he says to me, and he says to you, like he did to those first humans so long ago, “where are you?

This book is an exploration of that question.

Brazen means ‘without shame’. And that is the entire point of this book. To have a people unashamed of who they are, whose they are, and knowing that they are enough. At the end of every chapter is a little something to get you meditating and something to add to your ‘brazen board’: a board that reminds you of who you are and to keep on being you.

I think that this is a book that needs to be read with an open, but cautious mind. She writes to point out that we are enough. And true, God choses us as we are, but I don’t think that means we can’t continue to find areas to work on and keep improving. I believe that we should always try to be better than ‘enough’.

I would recommend it to you though! I hope you enjoy it. I would say this is for older teens to adults, and definitely for women, not men.

Anyways, happy reading!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.
