One mother is on the run (Wren’s Nest) because the other mother ran (Quail’s Run).

ER nurse Tessa Paige gives special care to the pregnant women brought into Emergency. Whether pulled from the wreckage of an automobile or an abusive relationship, Tessa is there for those who need help. But the new mom in room 326 is different. Her injuries are minor, but she was in labor when she arrived and gave birth before regaining consciousness. Tessa is assigned to be there when the patient wakes and ease her fears when she discovers she has delivered but her baby is not in the room. Tessa finds it strange that no one has come to check on this accident victim. No husband. No boyfriend. No family. No one. The contents of her purse raise a question about her identity, even so, when the young woman says she needs to get out of the hospital before anyone knows she’s delivered, Tessa and her nephew come to her aid. Tessa senses trouble but doesn’t realize her good intentions are a major cause of it, and this is just beginning. In the next few hours Tessa finds herself in a safe house that isn’t safe. Now she’s the sole defender of the mother and newborn against an intruder who has cut the power to selected areas of the house and lurks in the shadows. Why? Is someone after the baby? What will they do to get him?


“A wonderful faith based story that reflects God’s love and protection for His children.”

“Wow, what an exciting story! This is the first book that I have read from this author, but definitely will be reading more.”

“I am loving this series and hoping there are many more to come!”

“This is the second book in the Phoenix Connection, but it can be read as a stand alone.”

“Bottom line, people helping people is what we are called to do and these characters do so in a very unique manner.”


They think the threat is over. It isn’t!

Although they have never been “together,” Ellen and Jackson make plans to begin life as “separated” parents with one goal in mind – to provide the best family possible for Charley. When a new threat arises, the only way to keep Ellen and Charley safe is for the mother and child to disappear. How can Jackson let the family he has always wanted go. He can’t and plans are made for identity changes and a marriage of convenience – for Charley, of course. But before the plans can be carried out, Charley is kidnapped and Ellen is abducted. And then, Ellen is on her own, alone for the first time and responsible for protecting Charley. Will Jackson unravel the mystery and find her before the bad guys get Charley? I’m not saying…You’ll have to find out for yourself.

What the reviewers say:

“A beautiful story of fear, courage, and faith. Just when they think Ellen and Charley are safe, new threats arise.”

“The author has combined compelling characters with edge of the seat suspense, faith and romance and written a story that had me hooked from the first pages…”

“The book is well written and the plot will grab you from the very beginning.”

“All three books in the series are good, but this one is my favorite. I love the characters! I love the suspense!”
