Blessings on the Run
Danger she can’t escape.
Temptation she can’t ignore.
And the secret that could destroy everything …
Blessing’s worked hard as a single mom. Caring for her son, struggling to pay the bills, and straightening out her life after years on the street … It’s the hardest job she’s ever loved.
Until her ex-boyfriend reappears with a secret that could cost her freedom, her family, even her very life.
Blessing promised herself never to return to the hell she escaped from. But that was before she had a child to worry about.
A child who will die if Blessing makes the wrong choice …
Or the right one.
My thoughts: This book is hard to put down, though it deals with some tough subjects like rape, prostitution, and drugs. Alana does a wonderful job of weaving a story of redemption through this suspenseful read! Even though Blessing has had a tough life, things are finally starting to look up with another baby on the way and a boyfriend who wants to marry her. When her ex re-enters her life, he threatens all she holds dear.
You will not be able to put this book down! It's heartbreaking what Blessing has gone through, but stick with the story, since it's well worth the heartache.
I received this book from Celebrate Lit. This is my honest review.

More from Alana
Are you afraid of anything? Maybe you have a phobia, like a fear of spiders, heights, or (if you’re weird like me) fish. (That’s a story for another day!)
When I was pregnant with our first son, I had some weird nightmares which fueled my fears. One night I woke up my husband in a panic to tell him to pray for our baby because we were being chased by a demonic cheese grater (yes, you read that right – a demonic kitchen appliance!). Regularly in my nightmares, I dream that someone or something is after my kids (and they’re usually not possessed cooking utensils, by the way).
One way I work through my fears as a mom is to turn them into stories. And even though I haven’t found a way to work a demonic cheese grater into my novels, you can read about a mother’s worst nightmare in this novel, Blessing on the Run.
Blessing has worked hard to turn her life around after a rough life on the streets, but in this exciting suspense novel, her past it about to catch up to her.
Join Blessing and her parents (if you’re a fan of the Kennedy series you already know who they are!) for an adrenaline-packed thrill ride you won’t soon forget.
