Deep Extraction

I received a copy of Deep Extraction by DiAnn Mills from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
A pacemaker should have saved oil and gas magnate Nathan Moore’s life. Instead, it provided his killer with a seemingly perfect means of execution.

A bombing at one of Nathan’s oil rigs days earlier indicates his death could be part of a bigger conspiracy, a web Special Agent Tori Templeton must untangle. But her first order of business is separating the personal from the professional—the victim’s wife, her best friend, is one of the FBI’s prime suspects.

Clearing Sally’s name may be the biggest challenge of her career, but Tori finds an unexpected ally in the newest member of the task force, recently reinstated Deputy US Marshal Cole Jeffers. As Tori and Cole dig deeper into Nathan’s personal and business affairs, they uncover more than they bargained for. And the closer they get to finding the real killer—and to each other—the more intent someone is on silencing them for good.

Another good book by DiAnn Mills.  When Nathan Moore dies from a pacemaker failure can his wife Sally rely on her best friend Special Agent Tori Templeton and family friend Cole Jeffers?  Tori and Cole don't see eye to eye on much but they do agree that Sally has been set up and Nathan isn't the man any of them really thought he was.  As the truth about Nathan comes out will his family be strong enough to survive the aftermath?

The 17

I received a copy of The 17 by Clint Kelly from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

On the Number 17 bus, serving downtown Seattle, widower Jimmy Carter (not the former U.S. president) crashes headlong into the Almighty... 

Jimmy is lost without his wife. He measures his days as the time After Ruthie. It's now the year A. R. 4. When God starts speaking to him on the 17, Jim reluctantly agrees to serve, uncertain if he’s gone off the deep end or if God—Who can do most things on His own—is really so desperate as to need Jimmy to lend a hand. 

When love blossoms, hurting people are restored, and lives are saved—and lost, Jimmy discovers he's linked to God in a most profound way.

A very interesting book.  Jim rides the 17 bus frequently.  On the 17 he sees lots of interesting people.  When Jim starts to hear God talk to him he thinks he's lost it. Each time he does as he's told things on the 17 change.  Will God continue to change Jim's life or will he stop listening?
