My Thoughts:

I’ve always been fascinated by real-life rescue stories, so when I learned about this book I knew I had to read it! 

Andrea Jo Rodgers is a skilled writer. She did a great job of capturing and describing the feel of a small town. I don’t very often read non-fiction, but I loved the way the author presented these true stories from her 30 years as a volunteer EMT. This book is easy to read and engaging, in fact it almost reads like a novel, but even better because all the stories are real! 

I am fairly well versed in medical terminology so there weren’t many terms in this book I was unfamiliar with, but the author did a wonderful job of explaining lingo a reader may not be familiar with, and I loved that she did so quickly and succinctly so the reader could easily get up to speed without being pulled out of the story. 

What I loved most about this book is how the reader gets to see that in the midst of all the good, bad, and ugly parts of life God is always  present, and no matter the circumstances He is always working things out for the good! 

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author.

My review was not influenced in any way. All thoughts and opinions are one hundred percent my own.

More from Andrea Jo

Coincidence or the Hand of God?

Have you ever wondered if someone is saved by pure chance? Is it just his or her lucky day? Or is more at play? I believe that people aren’t assisted by mere coincidence. I think the hand of God is at play, putting the pieces in motion to orchestrate miracles.

During my 35 years as a volunteer emergency medical technician with my local first aid and rescue squad, I’ve often witnessed the power of prayer and how God works to put the right people in the right place at the right time. For example, in my latest book Heaven-Sent Miracles and Rescues, I convey how a young woman who gets out of work later than usual sets in motion a dramatic rescue. In another case, a young man stops at a friend’s apartment just in time to alert 911 that she is unconscious and barely breathing due to a heroin overdose. At times, our patients overcome seemingly insurmountable odds to survive.

God’s loving hand doesn’t have to take the form of sensational rescues. It can be more subtle, such as having our squad volunteers be present to pour love on a dying hospice patient during his last hour on earth, or in another instance being available to tuck in a lonely woman grieving the loss of her mother. As a resident of a small town, I’ve been privileged to form strong bonds with some of my patients, and my life is immeasurably richer for it.

The next time you brush something off as just a coincidence, take a few minutes to consider the alternative. Perhaps you are witnessing the loving hand of our Lord at work.

Review: Targeted by Lynette Eason, Lynn H. Blackburn, and Natalie Walters

My Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A fantastic romantic suspense novella collection! Few things make my romantic suspense loving heart happier than a collection of multiple stories from beloved authors, so needless to say Targeted made me SO happy! I loved all three of these novellas. I think Lynette’s story was my favorite, but I loved the other two as well! I loved getting to see Daria Nevsky finally get her own story in On the Run by Lynette Eason. I’ve loved Daria since she first appeared in Vow of Justice, she is such an awesome character! 

I loved Deadly Objective by Lynn H. Blackburn. Emily and Liam were great characters! This story is connected to Lynn’s current series, and I haven’t read either of the books in that series so far, but I had no trouble at all following this novella, and I am now looking forward to reading more about Lynn’s Secret Service agent characters! 

I also loved Caught in the Crosshairs by Natalie Walters. Claudia and Ari were awesome characters and their story was fascinating to read! 

I absolutely loved this collection and most highly recommend it! 

Targeted is a wonderful romantic suspense collection by three of the most amazing authors in the industry today! 

Grab yourself a copy of this one ASAP, you do not wanna miss the awesomeness! 

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. I also purchased an audiobook copy.
