Once again Singer has stepped past the ‘norm’ in Christian fiction tackling the difficult subject of the Muslim religion.
This book made me uncomfortable with it’s semi-acceptance of the Muslim religion. Maybe that is a good thing, and then again maybe not.
One thing I do know is we cannot judge a ‘religion’ in fact, we must not judge at all, but rather be accepting of others belief’s. Can American readers ignore what has been done in the name of Allah though?
Fatal Convictions does keep your attention and you will be turning pages. For this book I’d have to say you’ll have to read and decide for yourself.
From the back cover:
Their two cultures are practically at war, but now he must defend the man everyone thinks is guilty.
The wife of a prominent Muslim leader is brutally murdered shortly after converting to Christianity. Is it a coincidence,k or has honor killing reached the resort towns of America?
Bust with a promising personal-injury case–and his role as a part-time pastor–attorney Alexander Madison isn’t interested in talking the case that every other lawyer is running away from. But deep down, he believes the accused imam is innocent and decides to defend him in the biggest murder case Virginia beach has ever seen.
Soon, a media firestorm, pressure from his church to drop the case, and increasing evidence against his client all make Alex wonder if he’s just made the biggest mistake of his life. When the imanm’s beautiful daughter arrives from Lebanon to help with the case, Alex is torn between his feelings for her and his obligation to his client.
But with a ruthless assassin still on the loose, not only is Alex in for the fight of his career…his life itself may be in jeopardy.

I’m reaping the joys of having my own tiny garden. I picked my first tomato to eat. The first one some creepy crawly thing ate before I picked it. 🙁
Of course if you’re going to have a BLT you need lettuce too, right?
Got that out of the garden as well as some basil. Every try basil on a BLT? It’s really good. Although I couldn’t get Mr. Traditional to try it that way.
A few more shots of my lovely sandwich.
I used to grab a book and read it fast, like eating a bag of m&m’s the more in my mouth the better. Lately, I’ve been taking my time to enjoy each word and sentence that these Christian authors are giving me to enjoy. I know how long it takes to write a book and to read it as fast as I can so I can open another one just doesn’t seem fair.
This book was an excellent bag of m&m’s! The setting is Galveston, Texas. I can see and feel the gray sand there, the old homes that are still standing after Hurricane Katrina. I can smell the salty water on the pages.
This is book two in the Weddings by Bella series. The first was Fools Rush In. If you haven’t read it, go get it.
Swinging on a Star continues Bella’s story, but you need not read Fools Rush In to enjoy this story, but you’ll want to go back and get it if you haven’t read it.
Bella has the best job ever. She’s a wedding planner, not just a wedding planner as in all white dresses and wedding cake toppers. She does theme weddings. The wedding she’s planning in Swinging on Star is one of her biggest adventures. It’s a Renaissance-themed wedding and what could be better than having a real heart-throb Hollywood celebrity as the best man? He’s available and so is Bella, or is she? D.J. is her boyfriend, but they aren’t engaged yet. Since trouble? Maybe, I’m not telling.
Bella has this glorious event all perfectly planned, except there are a few problems that crop up. One of them is Aunt Rosa is to be featured on the Food Network Channel the day of the wedding rehearsal. The Hollywood Hunk is staying with Bella’s family and Bella must keep him out of sight of those cameras.
Bella does her best to keep him secret, but a secret that good often gets discovered.
Read this book and find out how Bella handles all of this drama and excitement. It’s a good book, don’t read it in one sitting, take your time and enjoy it because the next one isn’t available yet. Thompson is still working on the next book!
Rules: Don’t take too long to think about it. Fifteen movies you’ve seen that will always stick with you. First fifteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes.This was fun to do. I have so many favorites but these were the first to come to my mind. Very eclectic!
