#Giveaway: The Boxed Angel - Robert DiGiacomo

On July 3, 1776, in Philadelphia, Benjamin Franklin’s home is ransacked. A secret, ancient relic is stolen. One that Franklin does not admit to owning. Flash forward to modern times. Al Campo, a union worker by day, goes dumpster diving for old, discarded furniture at night. His aim is to refinish the pieces and make and display them in his home. One day he comes across an old couch and inside he finds the stolen artifact. As the story unfolds, sinister Jason Gull is developing a dangerous weapon that can kill its victims without any detection or apparent cause of death. He plans to auction it off to the highest bidder—and there are many foreigners willing to pay, including a religious zealot. Will Campo and the ancient artifact be able to save the world in time? The Boxed Angel is a suspenseful thriller in which an unsuspecting, seemingly unremarkable individual becomes involved in a life and death struggle, first by fate, then by choice. It’s packed with humor, religion, intrigue, history, a love triangle, and faith in one cleverly crafted story. Readers who loved National Treasure and other stories that weave history into modern day life will delight in all the plot twists in The Boxed Angel. Clues are cleverly interwoven into a storyline that will keep readers guessing until the very last page.

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?!
