The Contract: Between Heaven and Earth by John W. Howell and Gwen M. Plano #Suspense #BookReview @HowellWave @GMPlano

A fast-paced who-done-it that will keep you reading until the very end!


The earth is under the threat of a catastrophic political event which could result in international warfare and destroy all life on the planet. In heaven, a divine council decides that extraordinary measures are essential. They call for an intervention that involves two souls returning to earth. The chosen two sign a contract that they will work to avert the disaster.
Brad Channing, a Navy SEAL, and Sarah O’Brien, a teacher, become heaven’s representatives on earth. The story follows them as they individually and then together face overwhelming obstacles and eventually end up on a strategic Air Force base in California. It is there that they discover a conspiracy to assassinate the President of the United States. The terrorists have a plan for global dominance, and they are determined to complete their mission. Although military leadership appears to have the President’s best interests at heart, it is not clear who can be trusted and who should be feared. The action is rough and tumble as Brad and Sarah try to figure out the culprits of the plot that will turn into a worldwide conflagration unless stopped. 
If you enjoy thrillers, this is one with enough twists and adventure to keep you riveted and guessing. If you like your thriller along with a good romance, Brad and Sarah’s initial attraction and eventual love will sustain you as they live out their heavenly and earthly desires.

About the Authors

John W, Howell began his writing as a full-time occupation after an extensive business career. His specialty is thriller fiction novels, but John also writes poetry and short stories.  His first book, My GRL, introduces the exciting adventures of the book’s central character, John J. Cannon. The second Cannon novel, His Revenge, continues the story, while the final book in the trilogy, Our Justice, launched in September 2016. John’s fourth book, Circumstances of Childhood, is a fictionalized memoir and published in October 2017.  The latest, THE CONTRACT, is written in collaboration with award-winning author Gwen M. Plano. It launched in June 2018. All books are available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle editions.
John lives in Port Aransas, Texas with his wife and their spoiled rescue pets.
 

Gwendolyn M. Plano, aka Gwen M. Plano, grew up in Southern California and spent most of her professional life in higher education. Recently retired, she now lives in the Midwest, where she enjoys writing and travel with her husband. Gwen’s first book is an award-winning memoir. Alternately heart-wrenching and joyful, Letting Go into Perfect Love is a powerful story of triumph over adversity. Gwen’s second book, THE CONTRACT between heaven and earth, is a thriller fiction novel, co-authored by acclaimed writer John W. Howell. 

My Review

What would you do if you were given the challenge to save earth?

When two angels accept a mission to stop a catastrophic event from taking place on earth, little do they realize they’ll be doing it as strangers inhabiting new bodies with their own list of problems to solve.

Sarah is in an abusive marriage she can’t escape. It’s only after Theresa’s celestial intervention that she finds the strength to leave, but not before she meets her husband’s suspicious Russian associates.

Peter takes over the body of wounded Navy SEAL Brad Channing and aids in his recovery and journey to become a writer.

Sarah and Brad have some chance meetings, and instant chemistry, but it’s only when they learn of a conspiracy plot to kill the president that they become a team in search of the truth.

A fast-paced who-done-it that will keep you reading until the very end!

I give The Contract: Between Heaven and Earth 4 lovely kisses- an entertaining read!
