Product description

About the Author

Anna spends her time staring into a computer screen whether she is working, writing, or editing. That is why it is so fun to hang out with her grandson, children, or just walk outside. But burning easily makes it difficult to spend too much time outdoors. Anna does web consulting, working mainly for one company, Nature’s Select, which delivers dogfood! She also carves out time to write and to learn the writing craft. She comes from a family of writers, her mom, her grandmother, and several other family members are engaged in the art of writing. Anna likes to study the art of writing, learning to edit her own work, and exploring the creation of an author platform. When she isn’t at the computer writing or editing she is discussing plots with any one of her children – including her talented son-in-law. She has been discovered asking the advice of her cats. “They have good ideas.” she says. The world around her offers a variety of sinister plots even if it is just someone waiting for the bus.

Lily is a three-time divorcee and now single mother struggling to make ends meet, who happens to witness a murder. As the story unfolds, she must stay ahead of the murderer, figure out where she stands with the undercover police officer who is protecting her, and come to terms with her flawed past and her budding relationship with God.

This is a very quick, easy read and much of the plot is only briefly sketched. The focus of the book, and definitely its highlight, is Lily's struggle to find strength in her newly-developed faith and to accept that God loves her despite her multiple mistakes. Lily feels inadequate next to all the other women in her study group, and can't believe that she can be forgiven for all the (very normal) things that she's done. While this isn't your typical romantic thriller, it's a very sweet, heartfelt story that highlights the difficulties of working mothers, and is particularly likely to appeal to Christian readers looking for a clean, uplifting read.

Meet Lily walking along her favorite beach determined not to cry again. All of a sudden she sees two men struggling over a gun. One man drops and the other one, noticing Lily, points the gun at her but then turns and runs. Why? Lily finds herself being grabbed by another man who takes her to a building. Is this man Ramon her protector or another threat?

Lily is a single mom to two children. She has been divorced three times and now finds herself alone and pregnant again. A new friend Rose, has encouraged Lily to join Planted! Conflicted between spending time with her kids or going with Rose, Lily finds herself completely out of her depth at the first meeting. Is there really no condemnation for those that love the Lord? Even for herself? Lily finds that hard to believe especially when she comes in contact with the judgmental Diana!

Throughout this story Lily is also in constant danger. The man from the beach knows who she is and where she is. He is determined to get her but it seems like God has different plans. A little bit of romance also goes on between Lily and another character.

This story and author have a LOT of potential. Gripping from the onset, the very definitely Christian based story-line was refreshing in that it wasn't the "same ol', same ol'" that you read in so many other books. However it could use some editing. At times it was a little too wordy not allowing the reader's imagination to kick in. Many times the tenses in the sentences were muddled. For example: "She knew what is going on". I'm pretty sure in Chapter 20 it was the barista talking and not the barrister!

This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review, not necessarily a positive one. I enjoyed the story and getting to know Lily. It just would have been better if a little more polished. Thanks, Liz

5.0 out of 5 stars Lily - A Book with Substance and Hope! 25 Aug. 2016
By Emily A. Combs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book, “Lily” recently published by Anna K Payne has an amazing story line. This book has a predominately Christian Genre with real characters involved in 'real life' that includes danger, change, and hope. A “page turner” or, since I read this book on my kindle, I called it a “swipe-turner”. I tried to read just a chapter at a time, but in two sittings, I finished it.
I loved the characters and how they changed before my eyes and touched my heart! Even as I read “Lily”, I know that this is a series. Soon the author, Anna K Payne, will have the second of the series published. I can hardly wait! Each book contains a flower of the bouquet of characters included in the Planted Series. [...]
3.0 out of 5 stars A quick read 29 Oct. 2016
By Cynthia L. Conway - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Lily has two kids and one on the way. She regrets many decisions in her life but joins a church group in order to find some happiness. Lily witnesses a murder and is now being pursued by the murderer. I have to honestly say this is heavy into the religion and light on actual storyline. I found the writing choppy and doesn't flow well. I did find the names in the book a little hokey. All the women are flowers names and the religious group is "Planted". But if you are looking for a good story on how finding religion and God can change your life, this is the one for you. It just didn't have enough of a mystery for me.
