Hand Of Fate a Review

I have mentioned on here before that I love to read.  This last Saturday Apple introduced the I Pad in response to Amazon's Kindle. Did Apple send me an I Pad to review?  Did they want to know what Gladys had to say about it's brand new overgrown I Phone?   Was I standing in line waiting to be one of the first?  Nope.  Do I own a Kindle?  Well we've talked about that before when I wrote this post.  No I actually held a bound book in my hand and turned real pages and read Hand Of Fate.  Here is what I have to say about it.

The loud mouthed shock radio journalist, a terrorist attack and three determined professional women take you on a twisting and turning tale of life, mystery and fanaticism. The beautiful and hardworking news journalist, Cassidy, the stoic yet methodical F.B.I. agent, Nicole and the up and coming federal attorney, Allison all work together to get to the bottom of a terrorist attack, or was it?

I love a good mystery so I sat myself down and went to reading. Immediately several points stood out. Lis Wiehl could have taken the events right out of today’s headlines. She is an attorney as well as a television and radio commentator for the Fox News Network and National Public Radio. When not appearing on O’Reilly she is winding her way through intrigue with her co-author mystery writer, April Henry.

They have penned a previous mystery together called Face of Betrayal which was the first of what they call “The Triple Threat” series.

Hand of Fate, takes the fear of terrorism and mixes it with the trials and tribulations of three career women. They blend them together into a tale of mystery and intrigue with a life lesson woven into the storyline.

I read over 100 books a year which sometimes makes it difficult for me to find new and interesting writers. I believe that I have found a new series to keep me interested as it was well written. In fact it kept it going enough that I will seek out and read Face of Betrayal another Thomas Nelson publication by the same authors. Oh and for those of you who are into electronic books it is available on Kindle but not on EBooks for the new IPad yet.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”

P.S.  Dear Apple and Amazon,
I wouldn't object to you sending me an e-book reader.  Either one or both, I will be happy to compare and review. :)
