Summer Reading

by Patricia Bradley

When summer hit here in Mississippi, it hit! Temps in the high 90s and sometimes a heat index of 119! But what an excellent excuse to stay inside and read. 

I have so many books on my TBR right now as I finish up the second book in my Memphis Cold Case series. But one night when I couldn't sleep, I picked up H. L. Wegley's Voice in the Wilderness. 

Big mistake! Instead of reading for a half hour to unwind, I.Couldn't.Put.It.Down! It's a political thriller, with romance, about two people who must decide if they are willing to sacrifice their lives to save the United States. 

Imagine if a group of people in power wanted to completely take over our country, and they used the military and NSA to do it, and two people stood between them and victory. That's why I couldn't put it down. I had to see how it turned out for Brock and KC.

It has murder and intrigue, romance, spies...here's the blurb from the back of the book:

As catastrophes drive the US into martial law, all eyes are on America, waiting to see what emerges. KC Banning, network specialist, discovers President Hannan’s tyrannical plans and is branded a terrorist, sending her fleeing the Beltway to find her childhood soulmate and protector, Brock Daniels. Brock, a writer and man of faith, gives CPR to a dying nation through his blog, which is read by military members still loyal to the Constitution. But starting a grassroots insurgency while reconciling KC’s and Brock’s broken relationship proves difficult. When Hannan sends Special Forces to kill Brock and KC, starting a war in the Central Oregon desert, reconciliation, like staying alive, might be impossible.

H. L Wegley has the credentials to write a book like this--he's served as an Air Force Intelligence Analyst and a Weather Officer. He knows his stuff!

If you're looking for a fast-paced read with a sweet romance intertwined in it, Voice in the Wilderness is a great choice. It can be found at Amazon.


  1. Do you know that you posted this twice? Just FYI.
    Sounds like an interesting book.

  2. Thanks, Debbie! I think I got rid of the other one. :-)
