Synopsis:  
Prayer versus superstitions when a woman's husband is lost in the woods on a deer hunting trip during the Christmas season. As steamy as the hot, thick, sticky heat of Louisiana, this page-turner will keep readers in suspense, as the author spins a tale of love, loss, superstition, pain, heartache, and faith in God. God and the power of prayer versus Southern superstitions. Through belief, faith, hard work, the power of prayer, and God's help, this powerful, moving story is a thought-provoking Christian romantic suspense about a young couple who fall in love, but have to change her mother's mind in more ways than one, if their relationship is to survive. Can Andy convince June there's more to their relationship than friends? Will he win the approval of Myrtle, her mother, and can love survive strawberry season and an April flood? Will June be able to give Andy a child?  


My Review:    
Oh My, I was so caught up in this fast pace thriller that it was hard to put down. Author B.J. Robinson is an amazing writer. What an awesome ride, reading all of the storyline that she has put within these pages. 

The characters and the superstitions, the faith in God, all the thought provoking beliefs that author B.J. Robinson writes into her books will always keep be coming back for more. She writes as if she her self is part of the book and there fore you become part of the book. You are trying to make decisions or yelling at the characters to make decisions all the way to the end. And then, you are yelling or crying, laughing or just plain tuckered because you were in the book right along side the characters.

SOUTHERN SUPERSTITIONS is one book so chalked full of everything a reader would ever want. A Must Read!!!   
So due to the above, if I could it would be higher, I am giving this book a Breath of Life ratings of: 


Five Clock Rating!!!  

Disclosure: I received the above book in exchange for my honest opinion and review. Opinions are my own and yours may differ.

B. J. Robinson writes inspirational Christian fiction in the romantic suspense genre from Florida, where she lives with her husband, a cat named Frankie, a golden cocker spaniel named Sunflower, and a golden retriever named Honi. Her children are grown and have made her a grandmother multiple times. She won first prize for a short story in college in fiction-writing competition, which was published in Southeastern Louisiana University's literary magazine, and she's had over a dozen devotionals published in a year's time and has had numerous articles published in local newspapers and anthologies. She developed her love for mystery through Nancy Drew books, her love for reading from her mother, who read fairytales to her before she began school, and her fifth grade teacher, who read the entire Laura Ingalls Wilder Little House series to the class. She grew up on Nancy Drew mysteries and read every one she could get her hands on, so she loves to include mystery and suspense within the pages of her own novels. Her love for writing came from God and her third grade teacher who submitted her first published story about her dog to a local newspaper. She's been writing ever since, and her first college essay was published. Her first-prize-winning short story has been published multiple times. She promises to take her readers on a continuous journey to another world. Reading and writing are her passions. Jesus is her best friend.
