Terry Goetz's The Surrender of Ethan Moses features an angel named Levi who comes to earth to do God's work. Levi runs into many different hardships as he goes about the work of God on Earth. In Scripture it says that everyone should follow God no matter what, and that is exactly what Levi tries to do. One major challenge is that the church he builds burns to the ground. By the end of the book, Levi realizes why God allowed all the things to occur that seem to be setbacks and roadblocks. By the time Levi is ready to return to heaven, he has learned much about humans, about God, and about the relationship between heaven and earth.
This book has an underlining romantic theme, which adds to the story. Levi, in the form of Ethan Moses, has to find his soul mate after he has already lost her once. When he figures out who his soul mate is, the moment is unforgettable and all romantics are bound to love it.
The most monumental experience in the book comes in the last chapter. This is because everything the work, the sacrifices, the planning, the praying, each success, each failure finally makes sense. The writing and plotting are outstanding here. The author describes Jesus' eyes, saying they are a blue that no one has ever seen before and they are like two worlds spinning. Also, in this chapter Jesus talks to "E," and what he says to him is peaceful and heartfelt. This book has a very satisfying ending and doesn't leave the reader with unanswered questions.
This book is for adults who want to read an interesting and inspirational story about an angel who helps God do his will in an odd but interesting way. Terry Goetz does a great job of describing all the events that happen, and he makes the reader feel as though he or she is experiencing the events personally.

Historical fiction author Davis churns out another folksy, lighthearted story set in 1885 about a not-so-feminine heroine who shoots better than most men. Gert Dooley has spent years caring for her widowed brother, Hiram, who is Fergus, Idaho's, only gunsmith, and that position strategically places her to practice shooting all types of firearms. Second to none, Gert sets up a women's shooting club after a killer comes to town, and while the womenfolk are eager to learn from Gert's experienced hands, the men in town balk. As Gert trains her friends to protect themselves, she finds herself strangely attracted to the new sheriff, Ethan Chapman. Slowly the two begin a dance, and who knows which one will fire the first shot of romance. Davis's evenly paced tale, kicking off a series, reads smoothly and predictably, but perhaps too much so for avid readers who hanker for unexpected plot ambushes here and there. (Dec.)

Davis kicks off the Ladies' Shooting Club series with a romance filled with nonstop adventure, mystery and murder. The characters are charming, down to earth and just trying to live their lives. Davis makes her characters leap off the pages without overdoing the emotions. This is sure to please readers of any age.
A tender tale about the Old West and what life was life in a fading mining town. It takes a few chapters to learn all the characters, but they're well worth the read.
The Sheriff’s Surrender is a remarkable story. I believe the love that binds Gert and Ethan together is truly extraordinary. I like the bit of shyness Ethan projects, especially when he is around Gert. He reminds me of the timid cowboy like Tom Selleck sometimes plays in his movies when he is around the female gender. Truly magnificent; I liked that part about Ethan. To me it made him appear human in every respect. Susan Page Davis has woven a terrific story touching the heart of this reader. Immediately she pulls the reader into a town with many acquaintances blending together an impressive read.
