Today, I have a bit of a haul! The first book is Mocked by Faithby Michele Richard. This was sent to me by the publisher, The Writer’s Coffee Shop for my review. (Review coming soon!)
For Alexia Cross and Justin McNear, things are not what they seem. Both were born and raised in hidden, gated communities. A place where time virtually stands still and marriages are arranged by parents before a child’s 18th birthday.
Alexia is destined to be her community’s first spinster. In a last ditch effort, a husband is found. The only complication? He has no idea he has been betrothed. Will his history of dating outsiders help or hinder his relationship with his future wife?
Justin McNear searched outside his church for the woman of his dreams. Returning home after failing, he knows he needs to rectify his life and his faith. Can a woman he’s never met make him whole again?
Will this couple end up mocked by their own faith? Follow Alexia and Justin through the trials and tribulations of finding, falling, and surviving each other’s love. It’s never easy saying “I do” to someone you don’t know.
The second book for my IMM Haul is an ARC, and the second in the Mocked by Faith series, Healing the Faith, also sent to me by the publisher. Healing the Faith will be available to the masses on February 9, 2012. The author, Michele Richard, will be making a stop by BlookGirl.com for her Blog Tour on February 3, so be on the lookout for that!
I have actually decided to withhold the synopsis for Healing the Faith, as it is extremely spoil-ery for those who have not yet read Mocked by Faith. A review for this book will also follow shortly!
Also included in my IMM Haul is A Million Suns, the much-raved-about sequel to Across the Universe by Beth Revis:
Godspeed was fueled by lies. Now it is ruled by chaos.
It’s been three months since Amy was unplugged. The life she always knew is over. And everywhere she looks, she sees the walls of the spaceship Godspeed. But there may just be hope: Elder has assumed leadership of the ship. He’s finally free to enact his vision – no more Phydus, no more lies.
But when Elder discovers shocking news about the ship, he and Amy race to discover the truth behind life on Godspeed. They must work together to unlock a puzzle that was set in motion hundreds of years earlier, unable to fight the romance that’s growing between them and the chaos that threatens to tear them apart.
In book two of the Across the Universe trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Beth Revis mesmerizes us again with a brilliantly crafted mystery filled with action, suspense, romance, and deep philosophical questions. And this time it all builds to one mind-bending conclusion: They have to get off this ship.
I am excited about my collection this week and hope to have at least one review to offer early next week. I just ordered several books on Amazon and can’t wait to share them with you at my next IMM installment!
