Learning of her inheritance—a vintage European home in sleepy southern California wine country—is a dream for adopted daughter Natalie Turner. The search to learn more about her birth family drives Natalie to renovate the dilapidated chateau into a stylish bed-and-breakfast complete with wine tastings amongst beautiful vineyards.
But danger awaits her around every corner of the aged home and every lush row of grapes. For twenty-five years a serial killer has left a trail of bodies in his wake. Now the Lakeview Slayer has his sights set on Natalie.
Nick Hardaway never recovered from his sister’s murder—a victim of the Slayer. When news of the killer’s latest murder breaks, Nick grows more determined to make amends for his sister’s death, and joins Natalie in her renovations of the chateau. Natalie may hold the key to capturing the Lakeview Slayer before he kills again, but first the pair must decide if their newfound love is worth dying for.
“To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable, because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.” – C.S. Lewis
Unforgiveness is a prison, a torturer. It will rob us of our joy, peace and even physical health. Jesus knew mankind and he knew that a great problem that many deal with is forgiving others. It is one of our Lord’s primary teachings and the apostles were very keen to this.
In Finding Freedom from Unforgiveness, Greg Gordon shows some keys from Scripture to help us be free and release others. Do you find it hard to forgive other brothers and sisters in the Lord? Do you find it hard to love others in the body of Christ because of hurtful things that were done to you? Are you speaking evil of those brothers and sisters and judging them? This book will help.
Return to the Troyer farm where Heidi welcomes six new cooking class students who experience the healing hand of God.
Despite stressful changes occurring in their lives, Lyle and Heidi once again open their Ohio home up to those seeking to learn about Amish cooking.

During each class, Heidi teaches culinary skills, but it is her words of wisdom that have a profound effect on her students—though, this time Heidi’s own hurting heart will need some healing nourishment.
Watch for the release of The Amish Cooking Class — The Blessing on August 1, 2017!
This is the second book in The Amish Cooking Class series.
Book #1: The Amish Cooking Class – The Seekers
Matt is an average guy. His parents divorced when he was very young. He was taken away from his father who was a stable working military service-man. His younger brother became a meth addict, his older a gang member and subsequent felon. He had no guidance, no direction, no personal character building for the entire first twenty years of his life. He went unnoticed. He was often ignored, rejected, or bullied at school. He felt worthless.
Suddenly he was out in the world on his own and hell was waiting for him there too. After traveling countless countries, learning several different languages on his own, attempting to live on two different continents without success, failing to raise enough support as a missionary, earning a useless degree from a hard-core liberal college, dropping out of graduate school because of lack of funds, dozens of failed relationships, manipulated and used by numerous women, years of interviews without ever landing a real job with a living wage, only succeeding once in getting a full-time job in which he was constantly manipulated into working 60+ hours a week in fatigue for a $24,000 annual wage with no benefits or overtime pay (which was legal by a loophole), several failed business start-ups in which he was shut down by the government or encountered ruthless competition taking advantage of him, homeless for nearly a year, suicidal thoughts, frequently living on nothing more than rice and oatmeal, and four authored books which have scarcely even been looked at by publishers, he has something to say about this Neo-Marxist idea of ‘male-privilege’.
The upside is that—as any survivor of POW camps, death camps, genocidal regimes, etc. will tell you—the one thing that keeps a man alive and going is hope and the hope promised in Christ that “we are predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son the He may be the firstborn among many brothers” is comparable to no other hope. In this hope, all miseries become trivialities, even gifts.
In 2015 he founded The True Man at www.thetrueman.org which is a ministry dedicated to helping men learn to deny themselves and take up the good fight.

Following on the success of The Secrets of Heathersleigh Hall, Michael Phillips recreates a world of heather-covered moors and evocative highlands where one man’s quest to uncover his connection to his celebrated ancestry evokes the glory that is Scotland.
In Legend of the Celtic Stone, Westminster Abbey is the site of a burglary that sets all of Great Britain astir. Both the IRA and Scottish nationalists are thought to be the culprits but no one has the answer to the puzzling crime.
Andrew Trentham, member of Parliament and one of the nation’s most eligible men, is as chagrined by the break-in as anyone, and wary of the winds of nationalism sweeping down from the north. It is difficult for him to focus on national affairs however when his personal life is filled with all the trouble he can handle.
Rebuffed in his proposal of marriage by the woman that he loves and suffering through the lingering pain of a family tragedy, this heir of noble blood is compelled to reexamine his foundations. What Andrew discovers in the process is a link to ancient Caledonia, a highland heritage that will forever change the way he looks at the world. As the ancient legends begin to shed light on Andrew’s place in the world, he makes attempts to rekindle the love he has lost. At the same time, a resurgent Scotland rises to reclaim the glory of its storied past
