Christian Fiction by Mike Dellosso

I just read Kill Devil by Mike Delosso, a new fiction author for me.  This was the 2nd book in his Jed Patrick series, but I was able to read it as a stand alone book without reading book #1.

It was a good suspense and adventure novel that reminded me of the Bourne books/movies.  But it also has messages of faith woven throughout the book, primarily in conversations/reflections with Patrick's young daughter.  The reminders of God's presence and comfort through trials is a message we all need to hear!  But there are also disturbing scenes of psychological torture and hearing voices.  I enjoyed most of the book, but could have done without some of the more disturbing elements.

From the publisher: "Jed Patrick is convinced he’s doing all it takes to keep his family safe―new names, new location, new identity. But just when he thinks he finally has his life back, trained men claiming to be CIA agents break in and threaten his wife and daughter, proving once and for all his famil…

Delilah - a fictional account by Angela Hunt

This is another book that's hard to put down.  It's a fictional account of the biblical narrative of Samson and Delilah.  Told from the perspective of both main characters, the reader gets to peek into the culture and life of Bible times.

From the publisher:  "Life is not easy in Philistia, especially not for a woman and child alone. When beautiful, wounded Delilah finds herself begging for food to survive, she resolves that she will find a way to defeat all the men who have taken advantage of her. She will overcome the roadblocks life has set before her, and she will find riches and victory for herself. When she meets a legendary man called Samson, she senses that in him lies the means for her victory. By winning, seducing, and betraying the hero of the Hebrews, she will attain a position of national prominence. After all, she is beautiful, she is charming, and she is smart. No man, not even a supernaturally gifted strongman, can best her in a war of wits."
