Loretta Eidson

Have you ever been to the theatre and sat on the edge of your seat as the intensity of suspense kept you biting your fingernails? How about Taken, Kidnapped, and A Quiet Place?

That’s what I hope you’ll experience in my novels: gripping stories, fast-paced, and full of twists, while my characters discover God’s unconditional love, the freedom of forgiveness, the value of trust, and the power of prayer.

Yes, You Can

In a world full of negativity, it is important to impart hope to others through intriguing stories that invoke positivity. Friendships are vital regardless of your profession, and writing doesn’t change the fact. Everyone needs supportive, kind, and encouraging friends. I recently read Angelia L White’s book Yes Sisters. The cover sums it up. Surrounding Yourself with Women Who Affirm, Encourage, and Challenge You. This goes for men, too, even though the book focuses on women. Angela says, “We need a friend who helps us become our best selves.” Take Yes Sisters a step further. As a writer, you have…

Cave of Secrets by Shannon Redmon

Shannon Redmon does an extraordinary job kicking off her debut novel. The suspense in Cave of Secrets is immediate and thrusts the story into action. Her characters are well-rounded and her plot intriguing.

To make matters worse, Carli finds her friend’s body in a cave on her family’s property.

What’s in a Dream by Loretta Eidson

A few nights ago, I had a dream about a ship that resembled something one might see in a steampunk setting. One row of windows about the size of a shoebox stretched evenly across the length of the dark gray metal. The ship eased to a stop as it docked at an open field where a gentle breeze tossed flowers of every color and tall green grass, like wispy feathers. Everyone lined up at the exit waiting their turn to escape the dismal floating city. The Captain and his guards stood behind a table at the exit. Before anyone stepped… 

Closer Than She Knows by Kelly Irvin

The opening scene in Closer Than She Knows will draw you in like a magnet and keep you turning the page. The characters are well-rounded and realistic, and the plot is plausible. I loved the fast-paced action and the suspense that never slowed. Court reporter, Teagan O’Rourke, falls prey to a serial killer who taunts her by leaving personal notes for her at each crime scene. He promises to come after her, but not until he destroys her family and close friends. Against her family’s wishes, Teagan will not carry a weapon for self-defense. Her friend, Max Kennedy, arrives on…
