Decree of Hope
by Beth Fred 
Release Date: 09/01/14

When insecure eighteen-year-old Kailee Hill gets caught tagging Iraq war refugee, Abrahem Yohanna's garage, she's not expecting him to act as her designated driver, hold her hair back when she pukes, or offer to be a shoulder to cry on. But she's failing chemistry and her life is falling apart, so she uses the number Abe leaves her and finds herself with a new tutor.

The two quickly find themselves falling hard for each other. Kailee attacks a local grunt when he calls Abe a "sand nigger" and fights with her veteran brother to be with him. When she learns Abe hasn't told his family about her, she's heartbroken and the couple risks losing everything they've worked to build. To make matters worse, Kailee's previous acts make her the prime suspect in a serious crime. With Kailee behind bars and doubting his feelings for her, Abe must find a way to rescue the girl he loves and win back her affection . And to do that he’ll have to catch a crook…

Review By: Amy C

"Abe, you've always taken care of me." Two people from two different worlds brought together to produce the greater good. This book was as sweet as it was challenging for me to read. 

Abrahem and Kailee were so different and yet were able to find a connection that would test everyone's faith. They fought family and the power of the "norm" to break the barriers set for them and try to conquer all. They were powerful in their convictions and soft in their relationship they were developing. The secondary characters were helpful and much as they posed the most challenges. I would have liked more story for them to help me feel more for the story. 

I thought this book had a good story and great promise. I would have liked more character development and maybe a little longer story. I liked the challenges that Abrahem and Kailee faced and would have loved more from the author. I would like to see more for these characters and possibly a series???  This book was a good shorter story for me.

About the Author:

Meet Beth Fred! That's me! I'm a full time ELF keeper and part time writer/blogger/writing instructor.  I like my tea hot, my romance sweet, and my guys chivalrous. Real men hold open doors, refer to you as ma'am, make promises they keep, and aren't afraid to profess their undying love. It's not breakfast if there aren't carbs(at least, not in the South). Fajitas, carnitas, and churros are just few of my favorite things. Bet you can't guess where I'm from ;)
