How can one man save the town he loves when he’s the reason for the destruction?

Serenity Key, Florida, has seen its share of hurricanes, but this time, one foul weather system is about to collide with another storm, and this one has nothing to do with atmospheric pressure.

David New has guarded his secrets for years, but when two brothers, John and Andy Ryan, arrive in town and he gets news that the daughter he’s never told anyone about has disappeared, possibly the victim of a heinous crime, and the lives of many of the town residents begin to unravel in the gale force consequences of Jake’s past, he has nowhere else to turn.

God is the only one Who can calm the storms, but can David and the good folks of Serenity Key survive until He does?

A tempest has been brewing for thirty years, with only one island town in its path.

My Review

In life we all go through storms, whether in the literal sense, or the spiritual sense. This book is a great reflection of both. I enjoyed the general theme throughout the book – God can calm your storms. But we, as human as we are, sometimes try to calm them ourselves, and it almost always does not work. But from a reader’s mind, it can sometimes be run to read about it. Fay Lamb certainly had a way of making me turn the pages in this book with all the excitement, drama, and fast paced stories.

There was a lot going on in this book, to a lot of people. Sometimes it was a little overwhelming trying to keep all the characters straight, but that is probably just me and my sense of honing in on a few select characters when I’m reading. Any more than that and my brain gets a little scrambled. But I certainly recognize that not all readers have that problem! I will say that even though there was a big cast in this book, all of the characters were engaging, had a distinct purpose and storyline, and contributed to the book. So to have a big cast of characters and be able to utilize them all in a great way is kind of amazing, so hats off to the author for that!

Overall this was a great read. I think there’s at least one character we can all relate to, and I appreciate that in a book. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Guest Post from Fay Lamb

ONCE UPON A STORM

I’m one of those people who love storms. I revel in the lightning that streaks across the sky, the rumble of thunder as it rolls over the air, and I dance to the eerie sound of the wind coming through a crack in the window. Storms don’t frighten me. I’m an East Coast Floridian. I’ve lived through many a tempest.

However, so that you won’t think me completely insane, I have also fled a few hurricanes. In our house, a Cat III storm is something to debate as we watch to see how low the millibars fall at the storm’s center. A Cat IV means gather the important documents, place them into plastic bags and tuck them into plastic tubs, batten down the hatches, and depending upon its projected proximity, hunker down or flee. A Cat V is a no-brainer. Run!

If only the storms in our lives had categories so that we know when to stand and face the winds of life or to debate the direction, or to decide when to flee. Sometimes, the storms of life come at us without warning, with no stirring up of the waters by our own hands. Other times, the storms can be abated by the stance we take, the decisions we make, and by failing to move out of harm’s way, perhaps in an opposite direction.

That’s what my first novel in The Serenity Key series is about: one man stirred up a storm many years prior. The destructive force of that storm amassed because he didn’t take a stand, he failed to make crucial decisions, and he choose to run from a situation that God would not allow him to outrun. Storms in Serenity is a modern-day retelling of the Biblical truths of the aftermath of David’s sin with Bathsheba and the destruction the storms of life that blew apart not only David’s family but also those he called friends.

Mostly, though, Storms in Serenity, is a novel that proves that when it comes to sin, truly, no man is an island.
