#Giveaway: Grains of Truth - Lydia Crichton

As a hotbed of political and cultural upheaval, Egypt has become a dangerous place to live, especially for a woman. A world traveler and adventurer, Lydia Crichton married her personal experiences and love for Egypt's golden past with an intimate look at the Middle Eastern conflict. 

Set in the Bay Area and Egypt, GRAINS OF TRUTH is a pulse-pounding page turner that stars spunky heroine, Julia Grant, a devout pacifist, who is manipulated by U.S. Intelligence to take part in a covert mission in Egypt to help foil a major terrorist plot. But when Julia's contacts die along the Nile, she slowly realizes that she has become the center of a deadly game, spun by passion, intrigue, and the clashing of radically diverse cultures and beliefs, including her own.


Some recent praise for GRAINS OF TRUTH...

"GRAINS OF TRUTH is a taut, well-written, action packed story - an intelligent romantic thriller that never loses its focus as a high entertainment story." ––Larry Myles, Red Inkworks

"Unique characters and high drama combine in this well-written, action-packed story of counter-terrorism and espionage." –– Foreword Reviews


Author Bio: A native Texan, Lydia has traveled all over the world in her twenty-plus year career as a marketing and fundraising expert for nonprofit organizations. A trip to Egypt in 2002 turned into a life-changing odyssey, which led her to discover a passion for telling stories that entertain as they explore complex and controversial social and political issues. She currently lives in California's Napa Valley––the inspiration for a second book in the Julia Grant Series, woven around the shambles of illegal immigration in the U.S. For more information, visit: www.lydiacrichton.com.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
