Cirle of Redemption by Susan Muller, Janet Nash and Shauna Allen

What if you were an author and you had two best friends who were also authors.  Each of you write totally different and in different genres, but you want to write a story together that is somehow connected.

Well that happened with Susan Muller, Jan Nash and Shauna Allen.   They had this wild idea to write a book together.   They started with a central theme, “What difference can one day make?” 
And from there Circle of Redemption was born and given wings.
This book is in honor of our veterans, specifically supporting The PTSD Foundation of America and Camp Hope.

On May 26th, Memorial Day,the authors will host a Facebook party and all proceeds from sales of Circle of Redemption will go to Camp Hope to assist our veterans with PTSD.

Here's the Blurb from the back cover:

Three stories, three men, three lives intertwined by chance . . .

War veteran turned detective, Dan Wilson lives a solitary existence until the day he’s thrust into the middle of a life or death situation and finds himself face-to-face with the love he let get away.  Will he be able to overcome his regrets and her secrets so they can enjoy the future that should have been?
Rocked by the ravages of war . . .

Afghanistan has ripped everything from Cade Russell.  His peace of mind, his happiness, his family.  Lost and alone, his marriage in shambles, his world is falling apart around him.  What will it take to save the love that had once been his redemption?

Threatening to crumble under the weight of heartbreak . . .

Faced with the ultimate loss, Dr. Travis Rhodes finds his life has ended up nothing more than an empty black hole until a vibrant, vivacious artist brings color back into his world.  Can he dig deep enough to love again when shocking revelations threaten to unravel all they’ve found together?

Can they be healed by the redeeming power of love?
From My Perspective:
This was quite a different read for me.   I usually read one author books, but the idea of three women, writing somehow related stories intrigued me and I was happy to read the stories in exchange for an honest review.

Which story did I like the best?  Probably the first story although, I'd say they were all so well coordinated and connected, it was hard for me to really pick a favorite.   However, I don't know when I've read 312 pages in one night.   Each was very different and yet so similar, with three consistent items tying the stories together.  Best of all, the romance was  refreshingly clean romance!

Yeah, I'm gonna purchase a hard copy on May 26th, you bet!  They did an excellent job and should be very proud of their effort!

5 Winks Folks!  Yes, I said 5!
