I loved Lisa Carter's Aloha Rose- part of the Quilts of Love series- so I was very excited to pick up Beneath a Navajo Moon. It's also a nice thick, meaty book; and I love holding those physical books in my hands. (I know, call me a crazy book lady!) I wasn't disappointed by the read.
Erin Dawson is staying on the Navajo reservation serving as an intern at the Cultural Center and exploring the mystery of her ancestor who supposedly lived with the Navajos in the early 1900s when she meets Adam Silverhorn, a reservation police officer. As Erin continues her search for Olivia, her ancestor, she and Adam get caught in the midst of gangs and drug cartels on the reservation. Erin has to learn to submit her feelings for Adam- an unbeliever- to God.
I loved this one. Erin and Adam were both great characters. Their story had romance and mystery and some suspense. I loved the history connection with Erin's search for Olivia, her ancestor. And there was a great message of God's love and forgiveness and His power to perform miracles. As well, Erin's story was inspirational as she had to learn what it truly meant to be a living sacrifice for God, giving up our will to do His.
I related to the pressure Erin felt to serve God in the way everyone else thought was right and her confusion about what God really wanted her to do for Him. It's difficult sometimes to discern between well-meaning friends and relatives and God's own call on your life. Erin has to deal with this as she considers where she is going to serve God.
This was a great one. I continue to be a fan of Lisa Carter. Her characters are developed well and her stories have a great blend of romance, suspense and inspiration to live the way God wants us to live. At the end of Beneath a Navajo Moon is an excerpt from Under a Turquoise Sky, another one I want to look for.
You can find Lisa Carter on the web here and read about her other books.
I give this one 5 stars and a PG for content.
