Susan Sleeman here. Though Thanksgiving is three weeks away, I won’t be posting here again until after the holiday so I wanted to share what I am thankful for this year and say a special thanks to all the wonderful Love Inspired readers with a book giveaway.
I’m always thankful for my family. For my beautiful daughters, adorable grandson, very responsible son-in-law, and my hubby who has put up with me for so many years. But this year, family has held a whole new meaning for me.
I have mentioned before that we moved cross-county this past year from Florida to Oregon to be closer to family. And praise God, it has been so wonderful. One daughter now lives with us as she finishes college, the other is just .2 of a mile away and she stops by often with our grandson. We regularly babysit for our five-year-old grandson and have recently enjoyed our first sleep over event with him. I cannot put into words how precious this time with our family is to us after living thousands of miles away from most them for ten years.
Not that it hasn’t been without its challenges. My hubby was unable to find a job as a church music director so he’s been working part-time at a retail store while he gets his real-estate license. So we’ve had to cut back on spending and really watch our pennies. Well, praise God again, he is now licensed and his second career in life is about to begin. I look forward to seeing him succeed in this new venture. I just hope now that he’s a real estate professional he won’t refuse to watch House Hunters with me because it will feel like work instead of relaxation. LOL

THREAD OF SUSPICIONFALSELY ACCUSED!
When someone sabotages former navy SEAL Luke Baldwin’s “unhackable” software, there’s more than his reputation at stake. Faced with treason charges, Luke turns to Dani Justice, a computer expert and skilled investigator. She’s eager to dive into the challenging case…until she uncovers a devastating connection. The hacker framing Luke has a personal, deadly history with Dani. Luke’s code of honor and his growing feelings make him resolved to protect the sweet, strong woman he knows is more vulnerable than she’d admit. But what good is his training or determination against an enemy who can hack into any system and find them wherever they hide?
