The Next Target by Nikki Arana goes on sale June 1. This is one of the most interesting, educational, and exciting books I have ever read. It kept me on pins and needles, especially at the end. It had a great ending.

If you feel you know nothing about Muslims and want to know more, read this book! It gives you the basics of militant cells right here in the US. It opened my eyes to how easy it is for these to grow. I was so ignorant about this topic until I read this book. Now, I am learning more about Muslims because they are in my neighborhood.

I was impressed by Nikki's writing style, and her knowledge about Muslims. It opened my eyes about Muslim women and how they are treated by Muslim men. I'm proud we are not treated that way. Here's a picture of the book and Amazon's blurb. I hope you will buy it and enjoy it.

It only took one bullet. Austia's friend and student fell dead. And with a glimpse of a newspaper headline, the young and recently widowed Austia knows more about what happened than the police. From that fatal night, Austia’s secret outreach to the U.S. Muslim community—in the guise of English language classes—becomes a target. Local Muslim extremists set their sights on ending her ministry and even her life. And the women she ministers to will be next.
A thick web of deceit closes in around Austia, and her circle of friends becomes smaller by the day, even as she finally opens herself to the idea of falling in love again. But who can she trust? Facing a spiritual battle that proves more treacherous than it at first seemed, Austia’s convictions are tested to their limits and her heart becomes primed for breaking. She must ask herself: how much she will risk to stay true to her herself, her faith, and to the lives of the women she serves?
