Editorial Review: This lovely devotional will greet you each morning with a precious jewel. That's what "Where Your Heart Meets God's" did for me. I was greeted by jewels that sparkled with both wisdom and enlightenment.
Just as physical jewels have various facets and distinctions, each of Flora Reigada's devotions are novel and hold fresh insight. The author first draws you in with a brief Bible verse, expounds on it, and concludes with a Pearl to Ponder and a Love Nugget. They join together to awaken new views of the ageless Scriptures and to draw the reader closer to the Holy Spirit.
Even the cover joins with the interior to stimulate the reader's imagination with the well-chosen symbol of a string of lustrous pearls.
Since I can't possibly choose a favorite, I'll close by saying that "Where Your Heart Meets God's" would be an inspirational addition to your daily devotions, and would make an attractive and useful choice as a gift for friends and loved ones.
Love's Sweetest Revenge (Castle in the Sun) (Volume 1) by Flora Reigada
As if things couldn’t get any worse, Liz was about to be dinner for a hungry bear. She thought she needed that lonely walk in the woods, if for nothing else, to clear her head of her ex’s betrayal. Liz vowed never to trust another man after her husband left her for a twenty-something plaything. The chance encounter with New York’s wildlife, however, yields a mysterious locket. Liz ventures to the Floridian paradise of Saint Augustine with her best friend Rosa, following clues to the Castle in the Sun. Another chance encounter introduces Liz to the handsome presidential aide, Carlos. Can Carlos melt Liz’s embittered heart? Will they solve the mystery of the locket before her Ex gets to them? Liz has started a new life and, sometimes, starting over is the best revenge.
Editorial Reviews: I made a cup of tea on a chilly fall afternoon and snuggled under a blanket with Flora Reigada's latest novel, 'Love's Sweetest Revenge'. After the first chapter, how could you not fall in love with the main character, Liz. Flora's writing style makes you believe Liz is your long last friend and you are with her on this journey. I love mysteries, and Flora is perfect at combining this mystery with a beautiful love story. As a former visitor to St. Augustine, Florida- I loved this part too! Thanks Flora for an afternoon well spent with a great story! Keep writing!
This novel drew me in immediately and soon became a page turner. Awaiting me was adventure, suspense, and intrigue. The characters are natural every-day people who are caught up in a series of unusual but believable incidents. Those characters and the evolving unpredictable plot combine to make this a great story. If you read it, you will want to share it with your friends. Great job by the author!
I was sucked in with this book completely within the first three pages. It’s a chilling and wonderfully written story that kept my attention the whole time. I couldn’t put it down. A wonderful read over and over again!!!!!!!!!!!
I couldn't put this book down! The author has done a remarkable job with the storyline and the characters are so real that I found myself thinking of them as real people that I knew! This is an excellent read and has me wanting more! Perhaps a second book to continue the story is something this author will think about.

The Face Behind the Veil by Flora Reigada
Unfolding in old New York, The Face Behind The Veil contains three overlapping sections: Naomi's Story, Rebecca's Story and Enter Teresa. Like curtains in a majestic, old movie theater, the curtains of this generational saga begin to part as Naomi is born with the mysterious birth veil over her face. To some this was a sign of a prophet. To others it was merely part of the amniotic sac. And what connection was there with the otherworldly visitor that the child would later meet? Naomi's mother believed her daughter would understand great mysteries. Indeed--and she would do so against the backdrop of unfolding history. The Great Depression would bring poverty, hobos and even the Grim Reaper to her family's door. World War II would see love lost and love found. Naomi's daughter, Rebecca, inherits not only her mother's physical DNA, but her spiritual DNA as well. Her penetrating green eyes seem to look through walls and into hearts. She names her daughter Teresa, after the ancient mystic, Saint Teresa of Avila. Like her namesake, Teresa walks a beautiful but treacherous path. This brings the story to modern times and a Victorian mansion where past meets present, good confronts evil and the mystery of the veil is revealed.
