Scent of Fear

Scent of Fear

Susan J. Reinhardt 

the scent of fear by susan j. reinhardt

First came The Moses Conspiracy, now comes..... The Scent of Fear.

The Zimmermans enjoy the tenuous peace in the wake of their hair-raising year battling the New Patriots. Unexpected visitors once again throw them into turmoil.
Jim Kenneman, Director of National Security, masterminded the plan to break up a hate group ravaging the Christian community. Now, his enemies are out to eliminate him. Should he make a run for it or stick by his tried-and-true negotiating skills?
Monty Addison, a topnotch operative, carried out his assignment in Bird-in-Hand. A plot to destroy his boss sends him on a mission. Without agency sanction, it may cost him everything - his career, his family, and maybe his life.
Dr. Abby Weaver strives to save infants and toddlers in Holmes County, Ohio. When she meets two strangers, she can't get the tall, handsome one out of her mind. Will their paths intersect again or will dangerous times keep them apart?

The Scent of Fear is available at:

The Giveaway
Open to US addresses only. One person will receive a $25 Amazon GC and a copy of The Scent of Fear. Please use the Rafflecopter below to be entered:
a Rafflecopter giveaway

The winner will be chosen from those entries and announced January 17, 2014. Good luck!
Open only to those who can legally enter, receive and use an Amazon.com Gift Code. Winning entry will be verified prior to prize being awarded. No purchase necessary. You must be 18 or older to enter or have your parent enter for you. The winner will be chosen by Rafflecopter and announced here as well as e-mailed, and will have 48 hours to respond or a new winner will be chosen. This giveaway is in no way associated with Facebook, Twitter, Rafflecopter or any other entity unless otherwise specified. The number of eligible entries received determines the odds of winning. Giveaway was organized by Diane at That’s What I’m Here For… and sponsored by the author, Susan J. Reinhardt. The author provided me with a free copy of The Scent of Fear to review, and I was under no obligation to review it if I so chose. Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review or sponsor a giveaway in return for the free book.VOID WHERE PROHIBITED BY LAW.
Why do I do book reviews for my friends?  Because they are my friends.  If someone writes a book and gets a publish - I think that is pretty darn good.  I read her first one and it was awesome and I know this one will be too!  I BELIEVE . . . . . .

You know we didn't pay any adoption fees for "the kids" but they have brought us more smiles than you can imagine!!! As for the pic that reminds you of you & hubs, just put the pres in that chair and hand him a remote!...:)JP


That cartoon reminds me of my husband and I too.

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Thanks so much for being part of Susan's blog tour. I appreciate you spotlighting her book. Have a great week!


Love the adoption fee....happiness!!!

As for your question I read this morning on my blog comments...it doesn't matter where you are in Texas...the soil in this state is gonna shrink. Some areas are worse. And having 'sinking' is common.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

This book sounds exciting! I don't do Facebook, but it sounds like a great raffle!

I can never figure out how to work these raffle thingies!!! I will give this one a try, but I bet I do it wrong and no entry. I am now reading that new Mitch Albom book "The First Phone Call From Heaven" I love your pretty sparkly silver ball!!

NanaDiana said...

Hi Jack69 - Sandie is a good friend and has supported my writing from the get-go. I appreciate her so much!

Hi Sandra - I hope you'll pick up the book and get to know The Zimmermans, Jim Kenneman, Monty, and the whole gang. :)

Lee said...

I'm always thrilled when a friend writes a book and has it published, too.

The book I mentioned on my FB page today, Sandie is written by a lass I met when she was only 18...she is now in her early 40s. It is a very good story...true story of her life so far (and I don't just give praise because I know her...and she even mentions me in her story...which gave me a big surprise when I read that section).

I'll have to keep my eye out for Susan's book...thanks for the heads up! :)

BECKY said...

Hey Sandie! I don't think I've ever seen a book featured on your blog. Good for you!! I've already added Susan's book to my Wish List! Thanks!

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Lee - My book is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. The print version will also be out soon.

Hi Becky - Thanks for adding The Scent of Fear to your Wish List.

Susan :)

Lucy said...

That is really cool to enter to get a book. My problem is that I have the big print so I go to the library, when I can get there. You can brighten up a day so quick. Glad I came here first. Got my mind in order. Any more I do not do to much reading.

Theresa said...

This sounds like a really great book! I plan to take a little time off in the New Year to just relax with some good books. I will have to add this one to my list!

Theresa said...

Sounds like a wonderful book:) Have a blessed week dear friend, HUGS!

Debbie@Debbie-Dabble and A Debbie-Dabble Christmas said...

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Merry Christmas to you and yours!!


Inger said...

Sounds like a good book. I didn't know you do reviews. Nice surprise for the reader that I am. I will check out her blog.

Dee said...

You have a good soul...always thinking and helping others. Sounds like a read.

Grandma Bonnie said...

Sounds like a great book. I need to get a copy for my daughter.

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Dear Lucy - If you get an ereader or borrow one at the library, you can adjust the size of the print. I'm sure a librarian would help you.

Hi Theresa - Thanks for adding The Scent of Fear to your list. I'd love to know what you think of it. :)

Hi Theresa - Nice to meet you.

Hi Inger - Thank you! I look forward to connecting with you on my blog. I'm also on Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, LinkedIn, Google+, and Pinterest.

Hi Dee - Sandie's a sweetheart and a good friend!

Hi Grandma Bonnie - Books make great Christmas gifts...and birthday gifts, and Mother's Day Gifts. A number of men have also enjoyed The Moses Conspiracy.

Thanks Everyone! Sandie you have awesome followers on your blog. :)


Catherine said...

Dear Sandie, I entered your giveaway. Sounds like a good book.
Well dear, have a good evening. Blessings and hugs, Catherine xo

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Catherine -

Thanks for entering the giveaway!

Susan :)

Susan said...

Congratultions to Susan! What a wonderful accomplishment.

And thanks, Sandie, for highlighting the book by this dear author! Susan

mail4rosey said...

It sounds intriguing! I like that it's staged in Ohio, that makes it seem more real than some far off exotic place. Thank you for introducing a new author and book!

Self Sagacity said...

You know something? One of my goals is to spare at least 1/2 hour to read everyday, and I will have this book on my list for sure!

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Hi Susan - So nice to see you here! I love Sandie's blog and pop in as often as possible.

Hi Mail4Rosey - The next book will be set in Ohio and Pennsylvania. :)

Hi Self Sagacity - I think that's a great plan and so glad you want to add The Scent of Fear to your list.

Susan :)
