OVER THE WATERS
Genre: Inspirational, Contemporary Romance
All of Dr. Max "Botox" Jordan's wealth does not make up for his estrangement from son Josh when Josh chooses to become a missionary doctor in Haiti rather than join Max's practice. But tragedy strikes, and Max must venture to the third world.
After her fiance backs out on her, Valerie Austin decides to become a short-term missionary to Haiti. Valerie and Max are looking for answers, and with God's help they forge a friendship and explore their pain.
Raney immediately draws the reader into the story. Well-defined, empathetic characters have true-to-life motivations, and the strife-filled country of Haiti is depicted so that readers will feel compassion rather than despair. (Oct., 320 pp., $12.95)
