Dinah Harris Mysteries

I am delighted that international best-selling author Julie  Cave has agreed to write our post today. This is a part of our series of Suggested Vacation Reading brought to you by  Christian House Sitters

Julie CaveJulie Cave credits her parents for introducing her to books at a young age, which fostered an enduring passion for reading and writing. As a child, her favourite authors were Enid Blyton and C.S. Lewis and it wasn’t long before she began copying them, writing short stories for anyone who would read them

After school, she completed a health science degree, got married, and worked in banking and finance. All the while she wondered how she could combine her love of writing and her strong passion for Christian apologetics and evangelism. One weekend at a church camp, a friend asked, ‘What if the guy in charge of the Smithsonian Institution went missing?’

The result – and the answer to that question – was Julie’s maiden published novel, Deadly Disclosures the first of the Dinah Harris Mysteries.

Julie writes:

“The Dinah Harris mystery series was created out of a passion for reaching out to the lost with the message of the Gospel, as well as to provide a reasoned defense of the Christian faith.  They are specifically written for people who love fiction, and to be used as an outreach tool for non-Christian friends and family.Deadly Disclosures

In Deadly Disclosures, we meet Dinah Harris, a once brilliant FBI agent.  But tragedy and grief have consumed her, and the only solace she can find is in the depths of an alcoholic drink.  Her old FBI partner, hoping to help her resurrect her career, asks her to assist with the investigation into the disappearance of the Smithsonian Secretary.  When his body is discovered, and potential witnesses end up dead, Dinah realises they are facing a vast conspiracy determined to suppress the truth.  Will Dinah discover the truth before she becomes the next victim of a ruthless, unseen enemy?

The Shadowed MindIn The Shadowed Mind, Dinah Harris returns, still dealing with the consequences of past mistakes, to investigate a killer determined to eradicate those he deems unworthy of life.  Dinah discovers the shadowy world of neo-eugenics, who publicly denounce the killings but privately support a much different view.  Old secrets are revealed, tragedies unearthed and the devastating legacy of science without compassion is finally brought to life.

Pieces of LightIn Pieces of Light, the city of Washington D.C. is gripped with terror as a bomber targets churches with deadly accuracy.  Dinah discovers a killer filled with rage and determined to rid the world of God.  Can someone filled with so much hatred toward God experience redemption?

All three books also discuss current issues such as alcoholism, euthanasia, racism, domestic violence and self-harm from a Christian perspective.  If you like a fast-paced mystery with realistic characters and a thought-provoking plot, the Dinah Harris trilogy will be perfect for you!”

About housesitters

ABOUT Christian House Sitters Christian House Sitters is a Worldwide ministry that started in order to provide holidays for Christians and sitters for owners who needed a reliable Christian to look after their home, pets and garden. House owners do not pay anything to have their property listed. House sitters are only charged £25 per year and in return for this some enjoy numerous holidays each year. All fees from membership go to sponsor food for children at the Home of Peace Children’s Home in Kenya. This only supplies about a quarter of what is needed to feed the children so we urgently need sponsors. All funds go via our Registered Charity TLC Children’s Trust Charity Number 1156786 website N.B. Joining Christian House Sitters does NOT commit you to sponsoring a child or giving any support beyond your membership fee to these children. Although naturally if you want to support that would be greatly appreciated. We have some regular sponsors and other people who give an occasional gift. All are greatly appreciated. ABOUT RAY & MARILYN We are Marilyn & Ray White. A fun loving Christian couple who have been in Christian work for over 30 years. Marilyn was born in England but moved to Zimbabwe as a baby. At the age of 16 she moved to South Africa. Ray was born in South Africa and grew up on a farm. We met in Johannesburg and got married in 1966. Ray worked in business for many years then he worked for YfC in South Africa then went on to Bible College and Pastored a church. In 1982 we moved from South Africa to England.

Ray also has an active preaching ministry and runs Christian seminars on subjects such as stress management for church groups. He has written two books. A Christian book that is a very practical workbook on Christian commitment as applied to real life. The book looks at how we can surrender ourselves more fully to God. This is looked at under the headings of Physical, Mental, Social and Spiritual commitment. The book is called Let’s Get Serious. He has also written a secular book on Stress Management called Stress Overcoming this Potential Killer. (Ray was previously Chair of the International Stress Management Association UK). News Update This book has now been released as an e-book as well A few years ago we did a 2 month House Sit in France. Whilst there we felt the Lord leading us to set up a Christian House Sitting service. Since then we have done a number of other house sits. We believe this site will benefit many Christians around the world.
