Ready for a good book? Enhance your R&R with a humorous story; The Bachelor of Belmead is sure to keep a smile on your face as you get to know Todd Ross, the heir of a Dallas mansion he cannot afford.
If you prefer a bit more drama then Done Running would fit the bill. Porsha meets Parker in a most unusual way and he has the stitches to prove it. Humiliated in front of a large group of people, Parker is now out for justice; he intends to find her and make her pay.
What Matters Most is a delightful romantic suspense that will take your mind off your 9-5! King Pullman owns a pawn shop and when he is held up at gunpoint by a deranged-looking person, his common sense flies out the window. Meagan had good reason to steal her stuff ... she's just not done yet.
If you are ready to be swept away and entertained, then Helen Bea Kirk's novels of mystery and passion are the place to start on Amazon. I wish you a bon voyage!
What Matters Most by Helen Bea Kirk
Review by Books Teacup and Reviews
What Maters Most is about "...importance of things, memory of loved ones that emotionally attach you to the things they left behind." Click here to read Yesha's entire review.
Writing isn't hard. Everything leading up to it is, though. To write interesting, believable fiction, you must endure life and all it's craziness; the excitement of accomplishment, the joy of birth, the sorrow of loss, the ecstasy and pain of love... just to name a few.
When you've navigated these waters and your soul harbors the memories - that's your well. Back to writing; we dip into that well - deeply- every so often, to crystallize a character which in turn magnetizes the reader.
This brings me to my story, What Matter Most. The protagonist is a young widow still somewhat unsure about what love is. Adding to that, she is fraught with the loss of loved ones to the extent that she attributes their persons to the things they gave her. She loves her heirlooms with a passion. Then they get stolen from her in a violent robbery. Yes, she grieves and cries. Then she prepares for the battle to bring them home.
Very satisfying to say the least.
Have you ever thought to yourself, "Even if I wanted Jesus to forgive me, I know He can't - I've done too much wrong." That's where my stories come from; unforgivable sins. I have not yet written a book for the Christian community - I write for everyone else. My tales are gritty, real, and heartfelt. Occasionally, you'll cry, or get disgusted or laugh hysterically. At times you may experience an "ah ha!" moment, but you'll likely not forget that character, that scene or that moment when everything changed because it did and does- and it can -for everyone.

"It's a long, long road..." I love that song. Seriously it has been a long road, but the suspense/romance novel WHAT MATTERS MOST, by Helen Bea Kirk (that would be me) will be available shortly. It feels like I'm overdue and have an appointment for a c-section! I will be regularly posting as the labor pains increase! ;-)
After having been shot down (figuratively) by a big publishing house years ago, I stopped writing. Can you believe that? I can’t…now. Anyway, I realized when I did finally pick up a pen to begin plotting out stories – I was going to skip the ‘big mean publisher’ and self-publish. Little did I know what a daunting task self-publishing would be; nevertheless, I got jiggy with it and I currently have four titles available in kindle format and paperback. Have you been "shot down?"
DONE RUNNING " Emotional, flawed characters, redemption, strength and forgiveness. Porsha has so much that she is dealing with and the craziness of the situations comes through elegantly."
Helen Bea Kirk is the author of What Matters Most; a story of reclaiming what's yours.
"I loved the interaction between King and Meagan and how King shows his feelings toward Meagan who secretly feels the same. I'm glad the story ended how it did. A lovely ending for a fantastic story."
