FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: What would you do if someone was trying to kill you? How do you love someone who doesn’t share your belief in God? Who do you trust? These are questions that Alana Candler faces in Joanie Bruce’s new thriller Alana Candler: Marked for Murder (Ambassador International; February, 2013; $14.99, paperback). This suspense-filled novel follows Alana, a freelance photographer, as she flees from an unknown killer who wants her dead.
Soon after photographing a crime scene for her Police Chief brother Brad, Alana has the strange feeling that she is being followed. Her fears come to fruition when she is kidnapped and left for dead. After a handsome stranger, Jadyn Holbrook, saves her life and promises to protect her the two must race against time as the attacker chases her tirelessly. As they spend more and more time together, Alana’s example of faith in God challenges and inspires a skeptical Jadyn who must come to terms with his own demons and reservations about God.
In a combination of nail-biting suspense and romance, Alana Candler: Marked for Murder centers around the importance of living your Christian faith, not simply declaring it. “I hope with all my heart that my book will be a blessing and encouragement to someone,” says Bruce, “I pray that each of my readers will be encouraged, inspired, and that it will bring you a closer relationship to God”.
