    Loved it!

    I really enjoyed this book I was pulled into the story line and the lives of the characters from the first pages, and once I started it I could not put it down. It is a wonderful combination of mystery, romance and faith that made for a very good read. This is the first book I have read by this author, but I definitely will be looking forward to the next book in this series. This is one that I definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys good Christian suspense.

    Danger, romance and small-town secrets.

    Nora Martin's dream is to establish the Beacon of Hope residence as an alternative to prison or forced military service for young men who've been arrested. She has the government approval and the funding, but suddenly she may not have the farmhouse she leased from a church in rural Indiana. The church assumed care of the property when its owner died. How could they have forgotten to notify the man's heir? What else have the locals "forgotten" to mention? One thing's sure, they know how to hold grudges. Most of those grudges are aimed at Jake Schwartz, the farm's heir, who arrives unexpectedly on leave from the military. Jake tells Nora and her FBI friend Alicia to stay out of his troubles, even when things escalate to violence. How can Nora do that, when she's in danger of losing her ministry? And how can she admit her attraction to Jake, when she takes her Mennonite pacifist beliefs seriously? For that matter, how did Jake, another Mennonite, end up in the Navy? Burning Justice is set in the real town of French Lick, Indiana, and many of the settings sound like real places. Nora and Jake are both what I'd call expatriate Mennonites, keeping their faith but cut off from traditional communities. Jake, who looks to have compromised his beliefs, is more connected to God than Nora, who's crushed by guilt over advice she gave in her previous career as a social worker. My only issue with this novel is the ending. It provides a satisfying fictional wrap-up, but in the real world I think the characters would be setting themselves up for trouble. I can't give more details without giving spoilers, but I wouldn't want an impressionable reader to follow this example. Burning Justice is the first book in the Alicia Yu series. This is Nora's story, but Alicia is an intriguing support character. I look forward to seeing what action she gets into in the next books: Glitter of Sorrow and Color of Money.
