The Rescue Nurse

The Rescue Nurse

The Rescue Nurse by [Horne, J. Philip]

About the Book:

Title: The Rescue Nurse | Author: J. Philip Horne | Pages: 272 | Genre: Thriller | Recommended Ages: Upper Young Adult and up

Book Description:

To rescue someone, sometimes you have to kill someone else.

When Michael Grimm is sent to Italy by his employer to transport an injured woman home to Montreal, he finds her riddled with bullet wounds and near death. Michael saves Ariana only to discover all is not as it seems, and that the lines between hunter and hunted don’t exist.

As the two of them traverse the streets of Rome fleeing Ariana’s enemies, Michael is sent into a tailspin of conflict—deeply attracted to her yet repulsed by the madness of the situation into which she has thrust him

When Ariana finally reveals the real reason he was brought to Rome, Michael has to decide which lines he’s willing to cross and how far he’ll go to aid her mission—all the while wondering how he’ll protect his heart from her charms.

Content: some strong language and violence

Only $0.99 for a few days!

My Review:

The Rescue Nurse is a unique take on an action packed thriller. It's intense and unpredictable with a complicated romance, but also highly entertaining. One twisted event left me reeling. Once you start reading, it will be hard to put the book down. I'm hoping J. Philip Horne will continue writing books about Rescue Nurse Worldwide and make it into a series with new characters for each book, but with favorite characters from previous books making an appearance.

About the Author:
J. Philip Horne

J. Philip Horne

J. Philip Horne probably shouldn't be alive. Born in Florida, he grew up overseas for the most part, spending much of his childhood in Liberia and Micronesia. During those years, he experienced numerous attempts on his life. The wannabe killers included malaria, spinal meningitis, blood poisoning, a staph infection in his heel bone, a close encounter with a green mamba, and other cold-hearted foes.

From his earliest years, his parents read to him fantastical stories from wonderful worlds. Narnia and Middle Earth featured prominently, and had his youth been a generation later, he would have certainly encountered Hogwarts at a young age. Through his teen years he read stories by many other authors and experienced a host of new worlds.

After dabbling in writing for many years, he finally got serious and wrote his first novel in 2011. He has continued to write ever since. For news of upcoming works, please join Mr. Horne's email list at jphiliphorne.com.

Disclosure: I purchased a Kindle copy of this book. This is my honest and voluntary review.

On Lockdown with Dogs and a Linky

Robbie, Jessica, and Amanda
with Koda and Biscuit

South Africa is on a 21-day lockdown and, for the most part, no one is allowed to leave their properties. This means our dogs are no longer able to go for their usual run, but they seem to be enjoying the extra attention that we’re giving them.

We adopted both adult dogs from different animal shelters. We’ve had Koda longer than Biscuit. The dogs have to be watched around our cats, especially Biscuit, because she has killed a cat before out in the bushveld. Even today, she went for Prince, but came up short because of her leash. I’ll share photos of our cats next time.

Social-Distancing at the Botanical Garden and a Linky


One thing you'll quickly figure out about me is that I love taking photos. Most of them are my own unless stated otherwise. If I am in the photo, then probably one of my family members took it. Enjoy today's photos of our family practicing social-distancing at the Karoo Desert National Botanical Garden. We were happy to get out of the house and enjoy nature while keeping away from other people.

My Latest Post on Real Church Life:

Last week, I wrote about washing and distancing being biblical practices after noticing some Christians were speaking and behaving in a counter-productive way, using their faith as an excuse to carry on like normal. You can find my post on Real Church Life titled, "A Faith-Based Approach to the Coronavirus."

Reading and Listening While Social Distancing!

Free eBooks and audio books below!

I'm doing things a bit differently today. I want to encourage my readers during this topsy-turvy time. I hope my book related photos and these free and discounted books will be a source of comfort. All photos are my own. The first two reading rooms are from coffee shop restaurants.


Do you read eBooks are do you prefer them in print? With everyone being encouraged to stay away, this is the best time to give eBooks a try if you haven't already.


Reading

Two of my favorite sites that offer free and discounted eBooks daily are BookBub and My Book Cave. To download the Kindle books that I want onto my tablet, I use a free app. You can download these free apps to read Kindle books anywhere.


Listening

Amazon has put together a free selection of audio books while schools are out, handpicked by their editors for kids of all ages. All free. No sign ups. No commitments. You can find them here on Audible.

Social Distancing

The other day, I wrote "A Faith-Based Approach to the Coronavirus" on Real Church Life after noticing some Christians behaving in a counter-productive way regarding their faith and the coronavirus. These people want to use their faith to carry on as normal and don't want to have their movements restricted. God is practical and He gave practical instructions regarding contaminants and contagious diseases in the time of Moses. Modern medicine took a long time to catch up to what God was saying way back then.

While practicing social distancing on this Sunday, our family watched two church services (one of them was a live broadcast) from the safety of our home in South Africa. We also joined in on the World Day of Prayer to pray for the world during this difficult time.

"When I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or command locusts to devour the land or send a plague among my people, if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land" (2 Chronicles 7:13&14 NIV).

Catching Waves and a Linky


I know that every year I share photos of my husband and daughters boogie boarding, but every year the waves are so cool and unpredictable. The way the sunlight falls is always a little different too depending on the clouds and the time of day. These pics were taken over December, which is our summer holiday in South Africa. Amanda was exiting the beach when I took these photos of her dad boogie boarding.
