PARIS 1920's. To all outward appearances, Treasure Gilroy experienced the perfect life. It was full of glitz and glamour, living in a luxurious Paris apartment and traveling back and forth to London, New York, and Milan.
She experienced a life envied by many.

Her aunt always showered Treasure with the parentage affection she craved. If only her own parents had loved her in that same way? The emptiness of their abandonment continued as an unspoken painful emotion over the years.

In 1915 Treasure meets young Ella Dittmar on a freezing night in London. A strange and mysterious Déjà vu connection ignites these two young women, keeping them closely knitted together.

Now with Ella, Treasure leaves Paris behind and travels back to the beautiful Australian Outback town of Glen Arbor in Vision Valley, New South Wales, to claim an inheritance.

What will she learn regarding the mystery relating to her childhood that has been carefully hidden from her over the years?

Never could she imagine the depth of this discovery.
Neither would she anticipate finding romance with a wounded return World War One fighter pilot.

John 8:32 says, And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
After discovering all of the family's hidden secrets, will Treasure find comfort and finally be at rest?

Come join me on Treasure's fantastic journey from Australia to Europe and back.
She returns to her maternal grandmother's home and here she finds , family, love and God's mercy and redemption.
I enjoyed the deep complex characters,the setting early 20th century Australia and the compelling story line.

Discovering Treasure was perfect from beginning to end. Crystal Mary Lindsey has written a book that reached into my heart and made me happy.

Discovering Treasure is part clean, sweet romance with a touch of mystery and joyful humor thrown in. I was hooked in the first few pages. If had everything that I look for in Christian fiction and I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

5 STAR I liked Forbidden Fruit Temptation for many reasons. I found Crystal's writing style engaging and the story held my interest all the way through.
Crystal, obviously has a lifetime of medical and nursing experience and it shows through the details in Forbidden Fruit Temptation.

5 STAR I enjoyed this story very much.
It shows what faith in God can do in one's life.
The story teaches the importance of family life, prayer, faith, and Christian values.
Love conquers all when God is on your side.
I commend the author on this well- written and refreshing Christian romance.

A delightful story set in an Australian Country town. I really enjoyed this easy read. Neighbours and family friends from childhood, the central characters grew to adulthood each following their own very different path. The central female character follows a nursing career very authentically written by the author. The central male character feels bound by a promise made to his mother. I enjoyed how the author drew both families together and the young lovers eventually found each other. A lovely afternoon spent curled up in my favourite chair reading. Thank you Crystal Mary Lindsey.

She travels to the mystifying OutBack town of Brolga where her great grandfather began the family heritage

Enya has an accident during a lightning storm that leaves her unconscious. When she wakes up and gets well, she discovers it is 1899.

The storyline kept me so involved with the character of Enya and her travel back in time, that I found myself not able to stop until I finished the book. I had to find out what happened next.

What did intrigue me was the concept that love is not limited by time. God is not limited by time. I believe these concepts to be true. I loved the way the local doctor recognized his limitations and was fully accepting of Enya's advanced skills, which were learned about 100 years in the future.

I have read most of Crystal Mary Lindsey's books but she has outdone herself with this one. It had my attention from the beginning and only kept getting better. I feel this is her best work so far.

The main character, Mariah, was enchanting, gracious, and humble. I was captivated by her and couldn't wait to see what would happen next. The plot was intriguing and fast-paced with some unexpected twists.

The historical aspect of the book was very believable, and it was apparent that the author had done her research well. The ending wrapped everything up nicely. Highly recommended.

Louisiana 1902.
Mariah Kingsford FLEES her Opera stardom in New Orleans to escape an abusive pursuer. Arriving back at her North Carolina plantation she is stunned by its state of disrepair while even more alarming are the disturbing secrets it now harbors.

Mysterious, nightly occurrences with ghostly horse riders spiral out of control – and far beyond Mariah’s comprehension. Newfound friends Colonel Jeb Craven the town judge and his lawyer son Hart step in to help unravel the tangled web of deception built by Mariah’s cunning diabolical grandfather. Contraband discovered filling the plantation cellar, and a secret tunnel with its alarming content pervades her heart with dread. Prayer and ethereal visitation from God are given to strengthen her courage and persistent perseverance.
Romance ignites and blossoms between Mariah and Hart, but what future can lay ahead of these two if they fail to STOP the criminals before disaster strikes?

Lindsey pens a grand story with House of Shadows Secrets never Die. The story takes the reader back to the early 1900's. I like the story, full of secrets and great characters, especially Mariah. She is drawn to Hart, and something builds from there, I think chemistry, and not a forceful storyteller. I really enjoyed this story, as it also brought twists and turns, and an unpredictable ending. I look forward to reading more by Lindsey.

I became a fan of Crystal Mary Lindsey with this book. Her books just get better and better. What Remains of Me is a very complicated, emotional mystery. Make sure you have time to devote to this book - you will NOT want to put it down!
Absolute brilliant Thrilling suspense. One of the best books I have read this year.

I had the privilege of glimpsing the talent and heart of Sr Crystal Mary Lindsey, and I feel thrilled about her latest masterpiece, "She refused to be The Other Woman."

Domestic violence and abuse continue to be much too familiar in our society, and Sr Crystal's fictional story offers a much-needed warning signal about entering dangerous romantic liaisons. As always, the gift of Sr Crystal Lindsey's writing oozes with romance, suspense, and deep faith with wisdom that springs forth from her rich professional and life experience.

Ray’s story is an emotional tale that raises awareness about PTSD. The book highlights symptoms of PTSD, which include anxiety, mood swings, depression, and sensitivity to sounds and smells. Ray experienced all these and more but did not let them defeat him. U.S. Marine Vietnam Sacrifice is non-linear, but it is easy to follow. It contains flashbacks from Ray's life before the war and the circumstances that led him to join the military. His sense of adventure and freedom was short-lived, and I felt terrible for him. I loved his diligence in trying to recover.

Reviewed by Doreen Chombu for Readers' Favorite

U.S. Marine Vietnam Sacrifice is a memoir by Raymond Isaac Lindsey, a Vietnam veteran, of his experiences after the war, written by his wife, Crystal Mary Lindsey. The experience left him with physical and mental injuries. His therapy and treatment in Japan caused more harm, and when he returned home, he experienced symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Despite having a loving family and friends, Ray felt like he was in another world most of the time, which affected his relationships.

The author's writing style brought his story to life and touched my heart. It portrays Raymond's sacrifice for his country and also the strength of his wife in spite of the circumstances.The story gives the reader an inside look into PTSD and mental illness that will help others understand the problems our vets struggle with. A well-rounded story filled with faith during a time of struggle. Highly recommended.

This book is a real page turner, I enjoyed the stories leading up to enlistment, You learn to understand the Vietnamese plight as humans. I am grateful for all of these brave men who put their life on the line

t was difficult for Yasmin to grow up in a restricted culture that differed from the western country where she lived. What made it even harder was a stepmother who ridiculed, scorned, and abused her.

After completing her University studies and now a qualified registered nurse, it was time for Yasmin to PLAN her ESCAPE. To escape and DISAPPEAR from her restricted upbringing with the religious ENFORCED implications.
She plans every detail carefully and well in advance. There must be no mistakes as her life could depend on it.

A beautiful story of love and forgiveness. The author writes a powerful tale here, but the part I enjoyed the most about it was its bold Christian theme. A sure win for Christian readers, but it would be an even better read for anti-believers--better yet, readers who've felt just as Mia has, who were distressed by the belief they were forced to practice growing up, without letting them think for themselves and be who they were created to be.

Lindsey pens a wonderful story in Yasmin finds THE WAY: Christian Spiritual Romance. I am on a mission to read all that Lindsey writes, and I think this is one of my favorites.
