"The Widow's Walk League" by Nancy Lynn Jarvis

"REALTOR® Regan McHenry is at it again, much to the chagrin of Tom, her husband and business partner, and the delight of mystery readers everywhere!

For her latest adventure into murderers and mayhem, author Nancy Lynn Jarvis sends Regan into the clutches of a group of women known as The Widow’s Walk League. The women walk together; their routes vary, but the walk ends when someone spots a house with a widow’s walk. At that point, the group adjourns for lunch.

Book Review - 'Did the Resurrection Happen...Really?' by Josh McDowell and Dave Sterrett

"Christian apologist Josh McDowell displays a deep commitment to bringing the message of Jesus Christ and salvation to young people. In 'Did the Resurrection Happen…Really?' he approaches the mission from a fictional standpoint. 

On a modern college campus, a debate between an instructor, representing the historical Christ, an atheist and an agnostic leads to tension and questioning among the student body. The school hosts an atheist club along with faith-based groups and seems an unlikely place for violence. Yet a shooting occurs and the survivors search for answers."
