Hearts of the
The Secretary, Book One in the Hearts of the Manhattan Project is now available. This short story series is set at Atomic City, Oak Ridge, Tennessee in 1943 during the time when men and women were preparing the atomic bomb and the majority of them didn't even know it. They were given a job to do, told not to ask questions and understood the fate of their country and the end of World War II depended on it. Loose lips sink ships,
after all. In this series we'll meet five women with five completely different jobs at Atomic City, some more intense than others, but none more or less important than the other's. While each one is dedicated to contributing to the war effort, none of them expects to find love.
Julie Turner, secretary at Atomic City in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, isn’t prepared for what follows when she runs headfirst into US Army Maj. Eric Harmon. Literally. Determined not to let this man get too close, she goes about her job and keeps her nose in her own business. That’s what everybody does at Oak Ridge: nobody asks questions. The war effort depends on secrecy, and as a patriot, Julie will do her part. However, the handsome major seems to always be around every corner. With no idea what he’s doing at Oak Ridge, and the inability to ask, Julie soon realizes Major Harmon has interest in more than just his job. With a broken heart from the past, she’s resolved to shore up her heart, but will it be enough to keep her from getting hurt again?

UPDATE: My narrator has been through a lot throughout the last several months, including covid. However, she's once again recording and sending me audio files to review as she can. We appreciate your patience as we endeavor to produce this audio book under less than the best of circumstances.
This is christian romantic suspense at it's best. The writing is so vivid that you can picture the scenery of the Grand Canyon in your mind. The action and suspense will keep you turning the pages. I love how J.Carol Nemeth weaves the power of God's protection through this story. I highly recommend this book.
Canyon of Death - Amazon 5 Star Review
This is the third book of Carol's that I've read. She writes in a way that pulls the reader not only into the story but also in her development of the characters in all their different dimensions. History plays a part even when its a contemporary story. I love the details. The romance is strong yet not over-done. I read the prequel, A beacon of Love that I enjoyed. both are stand alone but great to read one after the other.
Ocean of Fear - Amazon 5 Star Review
A delightful book to read to cleanse the palette after reading suspense novels. The story is a prequel taking place in 1940 when Smoky Mountain National Park. The heroine of the book faces challenges in the a 1940 era world, natural peril and romance. Nice descriptions of nature around them and the credit goes to God. A very good book and, as a bonus, the first chapter of the next book, Mountain of Peril is in the back of the book. I've already obtained it. Very recommended.

Yorkshire Lass - Goodreads 5 Star Review
I have loved every novella from this author! I quickly took a liking to Hannah, as well as Caleb, and their friends and family. The military aspect was wonderful, and the mystery/intrigue was there as well as romance. It was set around Christmastime, which only added to the charm. Looking forward to another book!

If you are looking for a book that you hate to see end, but keeps you turning the pages because you have to know what happens next, grab this book. I highly recommend it.
Mountain of Peril - BookBub 5 Star Review
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The author gets an A+ for the twists and turn in her story. I almost dropped my tablet on a couple of them. Outstanding job. Loved her characters and getting acquainted with the Smokey Mountains. Can't wait to read Book #2.
Mountain of Peril - Amazon 5 Star Review
I loved every story in the Peaceful Valley Wounded Soldiers anthology. Typically, I am not into short stories, but that definitely was not the case with this book. I couldn't stop reading until I was finished! The stories were heartwarming and encouraging. Though separate, they were artfully intertwined by author J Carol Nemeth. I highly recommend this book!
