Author Scoop ~ Chatting Moments With Michelle Griep!

Dear friends, it is my pleasure to introduce to you today, this wonderful author that I discovered a while back—Michelle Griep! I found her book on Net Galley and decided to give it a go, and I wasn’t disappointed. The most thrilling part of her book was her choice of a hero, Ethan. You can read my review of that wonderful piece here. Join us below for a lovely chat. Have fun with us!  Me – Hello Michelle! Thank you for stopping by today. Could you please, tell us a little about yourself? And for your favorite pet, is it cats, dogs, horses, birds?

Book Review ~ A Heart Deceived by Michelle Griep

About the Book MIRI BRAYDEN teeters on a razor’s edge between placating and enraging her brother, whom she depends upon for support. Yet if his anger is unleashed, so is his madness. Miri must keep his descent into lunacy a secret, or he’ll be committed to an asylum—and she’ll be sent to the poor house. ETHAN GOODWIN’s been on the run all of his life—from family, from the law…from God. After a heart-changing encounter with the gritty Reverend John Newton, Ethan would like nothing more than to become a man of integrity—an impossible feat for an opium addict charged with murder. When Ethan Goodwin shows up on Miri’s doorstep, her balancing act falls to pieces. Both Ethan and Miri are caught in a web of lies and deceit—fallacies that land Ethan in prison and Miri in the asylum with her brother. Only the truth will set them free. Genre Christian/Historical Fiction My Rating 4 out of 5 (stars) My Review This book actually turned out more fun and interesting than I initially gave it credit …
