Today I am helping in the cover reveal for Strand of Faith by Rachel J Bonner! Publication Day is November 15th.
When the choice is between love and life, how can anyone decide?
A girl and a monk, both with extraordinary mental powers, have compelling reasons not to fall in love. But those from whom they expect support are manipulating them both because their choices will have consequences for the rest of the world.
After a stormy youth, Brother Prospero has found comfort and fulfilment in the monastery. That is, until he discovers something that forces him to reconsider his whole vocation. To follow his heart, he’ll have to face his demons again, outside the security of the monastery. Is it worth the risk? Can he beat them this time? Or will they finally destroy him?
Orphaned and mistreated, Leonie has found sanctuary and safety at the abbey. All she wants is to learn how to manage her unusual abilities so that she is not a danger to those around her. When she comes into contact with Prospero everything threatens to spiral out of her control. Whether she leaves or whether she stays, how can she possibly avoid destroying – yet again – those she has come to care about?
Abbot Gabriel is faced with an impossible choice. He can do nothing and watch the world descend into war. Or he can manipulate events and ensure peace – at the cost of two lives that he is responsible for. He knows what he has to do but is he strong enough to sacrifice those he loves?
What does the cover look like?????? Keep scrolling to find out!!

About the Author:
Rachel J Bonner is the author of the four book Choices and Consequences series, the first of which, Strand of Faith, is due out in November 2018.
Getting a degree in engineering, followed by a career in accountancy is probably not a conventional path to becoming an author, particularly in paranormal romance. Rachel says that, although accountancy isn’t anything like as boring as everyone thinks, writing is a lot more fun. When not writing, she can be found walking in the beautiful countryside near where she lives, which has influenced much of the scenery in her books, or shooting things with her local archery club. Target shooting only, honest. Nothing to worry about.
She also enjoys swimming, eating chocolate chip cookies and growing aromatic herbs, especially thyme and rosemary. It’s no coincidence that her heroine likes the same things.

Emily thinks Adam’s perfect; the man she thought she’d never meet. But lurking in the shadows is a rival; a woman who shares a deep bond with the man she loves.
Emily chose Adam, but she didn’t choose his mother Pammie. There’s nothing a mother wouldn’t do for her son, and now Emily is about to find out just how far Pammie will go to get what she wants: Emily gone forever.
The Other Woman is an addictive, fast-paced psychological thriller about the destructive relationship between Emily, her boyfriend Adam, and his manipulative mother Pammie.
We have had an evil child this summer with Hanna (See my review for Baby Teeth) and now we have the evil future mother-in-law with Pammie! I wonder what evil will be next….
I had one opinion of Pammie at the beginning of the novel and it changed throughout. At first maybe it is Emily with the issue then Pammie does something and then you think, “Oh yeah, she IS Evil!” I did not really connect with Emily so, I did not really have empathy for her. Some of the decisions she makes I couldn’t agree with, at times I found myself shaking my head as I listened to the audiobook.
Then we have that twist and ok, I was not expecting that! I would love to see this story via Pammie’s perspective!
Though not for me, maybe this one will be for you.
Thank you Minotaur books for my arc copy and St. Martin’s Press for my audio arc copy that I received at Mary Kay Andrews book launch for The High Tide Club.[Top]

It’s 1929, and twelve-year-old Martha has no choice but to work as a maid in the New York City mansion of the wealthy Sewell family. But, despite the Gatsby-like parties and trimmings of success, she suspects something might be deeply wrong in the household—specifically with Rose Sewell, the formerly vivacious lady of the house who now refuses to leave her room. The other servants say Rose is crazy, but scrappy, strong-willed Martha thinks there’s more to the story—and that the paintings in the Sewell’s gallery contain a hidden message detailing the truth. But in a house filled with secrets, nothing is quite what it seems, and no one is who they say. Can Martha follow the clues, decipher the code, and solve the mystery of what’s really going on with Rose Sewell . . . ?
Inspired by true events described in the author’s fascinating note, The Gallery is a 1920s caper told with humor and spunk that readers will love.
This is another book with an amazingly beautiful cover! Plus, the story was pretty good too. It was simpler than I was expecting. By the time it was over, I felt like not a whole lot had happened, but it was more a lack of crazy plot twists and turns. The plot was uncomplicated and smooth, with very few bells and whistles. Martha is a spunky Irish girl who is too curious for her own good; I really liked her. She’s intuitive and doesn’t miss much. Considering the timeline is relatively short, Martha seems to grow up quite a bit throughout the story. Fitzgerald did a great job of taking a mysterious historical event and weaving in fiction to fill in the details. I feel bad for not saying more, but there’s just not much else to say without giving away more of the plot. Overall, this was great historical fiction and good for just about anybody!
