Blurb for Breach of Trust:

Paige Rogers is a former CIA agent who lost all she treasured seven years ago when her entire team was killed in a covert mission. She blames their leader—Daniel Keary—whom Paige believes betrayed them. Disillusioned and afraid for her life, she disappeared and started a new life as a small-town librarian. But when Keary announces his candidacy for governor of her state, he comes after Paige to ensure that she won’t ruin his bid for office. He threatens everything she holds dear, and Paige must choose between the life of hiding that has become her refuge . . . or risking everything in one last, desperate attempt to right old wrongs.

Blurb for How Can I run a Tight Ship When I’m Surrounded By Loose Cannons? by Kathi Macias:

The perfect woman-excellent wife, cherished mother, impeccable
housekeeper, thriving entrepreneur-all rolled into one. The Proverbs 31 woman looms large for Christian women today. But despite our best efforts it seems there are always loose cannons rolling around the deck. With humor and relevance, Kathi Macias shares her journey and struggles with Proverbs 31, ultimately discovering that there is a natural progression of growing in grace, through which we can learn to relinquish the dream of perfection and give up trying to control every aspect of our lives, and instead learn to trust the Captain of our ship to steer us safely home.
