When we recorded this episode, I hadn't read all of Beneath a Star-Lit Sky yet, but um... yeah. I have now, and guys!  If my gush that I could do about this book isn't enough to get you to go grab it on Kindle Unlimited, buy a paperback, or download it to your Kindle, then maybe this episode is just what you need #BecauseYes!

JL Crosswhite came on to talk about Romantic Suspense back in Episode 71, and you can listen to that that HERE.

It's Time for a Great Read and a Vicarious Camping Trip or Not

In this episode, we chatted about the area the book takes place, the long process it takes for her books to germinate, how she puts all kinds of personal tidbits in her books, and more.  As for me, I went and read the book. 

Look, this isn't the most amazing review, but it's exactly how I felt the moment I finished:

Some might accuse me of giving this book five stars because I know the area it takes place in--know it well and love it.
Others might accuse me of giving this book five stars because I'm a sucker for bookworms and the military.
Both could be partially true. Who knows? But I say that I give it five stars for the moment that I called the twist and it kicked off an avalange of events that even got me off on a wrong trail, suspecting someone not worthy of my suspicion. Way. To. Go.
Love the characters, already admitted to loving the setting, and the story has all tension you could hope for. Misunderstandings are realistic and handled well.
Where's the next? I'm not sure I can wait. Just sayin'.

Beneath a Star-Lit Sky by JL Crosswhite

Small town girl looking to mend her broken heart…

…Small town boy needing to repair his reputation.

Who knew those simple goals could unearth life-threatening danger?

Holcomb Springs has a wild past, and the wilderness outside its borders hides a treacherous present.

Teacher Ella Sommer is ready to forget about her broken engagement and escape running into her ex. An overnight hiking trip in the local wilderness offers what she needs to clear her head, breathe out under the stars, and prove that she is more than just a bookworm.

Former Army Ranger Reese Vega left Holcomb Springs with a bad boy rep, but has returned wiser, longing for a fresh start. Helping his brother’s hiking tour business offers him an opportunity to get into the great outdoors and let his past evaporate into the mountain air. But can he repair the relationship with his family?

When Reese and Ella are thrown together on the trail, what starts as a simple trek ends up filled with danger when they stumble across something they weren’t supposed to see.

Can they put aside their history and use their wits to get out of this situation?

Or will it be too late?

You’ll love Beneath a Star-Lit Skya Christian romantic suspense, because while the wilderness can’t be tamed, the human heart can.
