by Alice I. Johnson
The Man without Willpower is a suspenseful murder mystery that will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish, while the author’s down-home style and homespun humor adds greatly to the interest of the tale. I was drawn into the story from the very beginning and, at the very end, found myself wishing there was more.
James Brandt, aka William Frunk, is in Texas on a secret mission when he is forced to stop at Luke and Hanna’s place to take shelter from an approaching storm. From that encounter, he is drawn into a mysterious adventure involving arson, murder, and romance.
In “A Blackland Farmer’s Daughter,” the author takes you back to her childhood and shares bittersweet memories that are touching as well as entertaining.
“She Was Called a Wildwood Flower” is a touching story about a young girl who loves her laid-back, peaceful life with her grandfather but is perplexed by the knowledge that her life will soon come crashing down upon her. A chance encounter with a young man gives her hope and a dream of a better future.
