Amber Morn by Brandilyn Collins

This week, Christian Fiction Blog Alliance presents Amber Morn by Brandilyn Collins. If you haven't had a chance to check this series out, I highly recommend it. I'm halfway through Amber Morn, the fourth and final book in the Kanner Lake series (sniffle-snifle) and it carries on in Brandilyn's true "don't forget to b r e a t h e ... ®" style. Be sure to leave a comment for the book drawing. One "lucky" person will receive a copy of Amber Morn AND a signed copy of Coral Moon, book two in the series.

About Brandilyn...
Brandilyn writes for Zondervan, the Christian division of HarperCollins Publishers, and is currently at work on her 19th book. Her first, A Question of Innocence, was a true crime published by Avon in 1995. Its promotion landed her on local and national TV and radio, including the Phil Donahue and Leeza talk shows.

She’s also known for her distinctive book on fiction-writing techniques, Getting Into Character: Seven Secrets a Novelist Can Learn From Actors (John Wiley & Sons), and often teaches at writers conferences.

Brandilyn blogs at Forensics and Faith. Visit her Website to read the first chapters of all her books.

About Amber Morn...
The whole thing couldn’t have taken more than sixty seconds.

Bailey hung on to the counter, dazed. If she let go, she’d collapse—and the twitching fingers of the gunman would pull the trigger. The rest of her group huddled in frozen shock.

Dear God, help us! Tell me this is a dream . . .

The shooter’s teeth clenched. “ Anybody who moves is dead.”

On a beautiful Saturday morning the nationally read “Scenes and Beans” bloggers gather at Java Joint for a special celebration. Chaos erupts when three gunmen burst in and take them all hostage. One person is shot and dumped outside.

Police Chief Vince Edwards must negotiate with the desperate trio. The gunmen insist on communicating through the “comments” section of the blog—so all the world can hear their story. What they demand, Vince can’t possibly provide. But if he doesn’t, over a dozen beloved Kanner Lake citizens will die...

Amber Morn is the climactic finale to Collins’ widely read Kanner Lake series. All first three titles in the series, Violet Dawn, Coral Moon, and Crimson Eve, were bestsellers. Library Journal placed Crimson Eve on its Best Books of 2007 list, and hailed it the “Best Christian suspense of 2007.”

***Remember to leave a comment for a chance to win these books. I'm still waiting for one commenter to get Allison Bottke's groundbreaking book, Setting Boundaries with Your Adult Children. Winners picked Friday.
