When the dive team is called in to recover a body from a submerged car, they aren’t prepared to find an encrypted laptop—or an unsettling connection between investigator Adam Campbell and the dead accountant. 
Adam turns to his friend Dr. Sabrina Fleming—a professor at the local university with unparalleled computer security and forensics skills—to recover the files from the laptop. But the deeper they dig, the deadlier the investigation becomes. When evidence uncovers a human trafficking ring and implicates members of Adam’s own family, he and Sabrina will have to risk everything to solve the case.
The truth could set hundreds free—but someone is willing to do whatever it takes to silence anyone who threatens to reveal their secrets. Award-winning author Lynn H. Blackburn invites readers back to Carrington, North Carolina, where everything is not as it seems, and sinister elements lurk behind the idyllic fa├žade.

This ninety-two-page gift book is a compilation of devotions, poems, prayers, and lists of things to be grateful for. The difference between having what you want and having what you need is a principle some people never grasp. In the reading of this book, you may realize you have much more to be grateful for than you were aware of.  Use this little book as a daily devotional or pick it up at random times to remind yourself that you are a blessed individual.

PRAISE FOR GRATITUDE: THE ART OF BEING THANKFUL:
"This little gem of a book arrived before we left on vacation, so I took it along. It became our shared devotional and 'thought for the day' outlook…and colored our time away with gratitude. This unique discovery is one to treasure." 5 Star Review, Amazon verified purchase

Most of the time, we don't realize the many blessings we have in our daily lives.  Just being able to walk on two feet, or see with our eyes is something we can take for granted.  In Vickie Phelps' book Gratitude: the Art of Being Thankful, we are reminded of how even the little things in life, such as a stranger letting you go ahead of them at the grocery store, is something to be thankful for.  Unfortunately, many of us focus on what is not going right in our lives, rather than how truly blessed we are.  Even if we don't have good health, or a job we love, there are still reasons to be thankful.  We can be grateful for the treatment/care to address these health issues, and to at least have a job to pay the bills. We can be thankful for the air-conditioning in our homes and the roof over our heads.  We can be thankful for good friends, a beautiful day, food on our table, or just for being born in a free country.  The list can go on and on! There is always something to be thankful for.  

In Phelps' book, she also talks about her own personal struggles with her husband's poor heart health, as well as the reasons why she is still thankful even in the mist of these difficult times.  What I loved most about this book was how it reminds us to not only have a heart of gratitude, but to also acknowledge that we have someone to be grateful to.  In her pocket-sized book, Phelps provides several prayers and scriptures to help you give thanks to God even during the difficult times.  We may not always get what we want in life, but we can be at peace knowing we are not alone and that God's blessings are all around us - even when we don't realize it.  A heartfelt and uplifting book from start to finish! 

Rating: 5 Stars!
