Former Marine Colton “Cowboy” Neeley, codename Digitalis, can’t figure out why the woman he loves is lying to him. What he does know is that Piper’s secrets can’t possibly be worse than his own—-a belief which keeps him from deepening their relationship. Too bad his daughter Mickey wants Piper to be her new mother, and Colton’s father is convinced that Piper is “The One” God picked out for his son.
If Colton’s life would just slow down for a day or so, he might be able to figure it all out. Instead, he finds himself hopping from special ops mission to special ops mission until God brings the enemy right to his ranch’s back door.
This unputdownable page-turner has just about the right amount of everything: action, romance, humor, and espionage. And I loved the stunning climax in Israel. I did grow a bit frustrated with Colton’s secretive love interest Piper, but after she dried her tears and tried trusting Colton, I decided she might be worthy of him.
As for me, I discovered that Digitalis is good for my heart. In other words, Colton Neeley is my new favorite hero. Of course, I haven’t read the other books in this series yet!
I’m writing about Digitalis today as part of the Christian Fiction Book Club. Digitalis is the second book in author Ronie Kendig’s Discarded Heroes Series. Having grown up enjoying John Wayne movies with my dad, I think I was predisposed to love this kind of story. I’m a flag-waving supporter of the military, those brave men and women who willingly put their lives on the line to keep the rest of us safe. I’m so thankful for their many sacrifices! I love books and movies that show them for the heroes they really are.
The hero in this book has to overcome much even just to find happiness in his personal life.
But with God’s help he does. His theme verse becomes ~Isaiah 26:3~ “You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.”
Or hear it from The Message: “People with their minds set on You, You keep completely whole, steady on their feet, because they keep at it and don’t quit.”
About the author: Ronie Kendig is an Army brat, married to a military veteran, homeschooler, and active member of ACFW. She has a great website with a special page called Ground Support, which highlights organizations that support the military and how you can help. Follow this link to her website.
