Enjoyable Southern Fiction

Every town has its secrets, and Shiloh is no exception. When Theo Phillips decided to finally retire from the publishing business, he and his wife, Liddy, moved to South Georgia to what they thought would be a sleepy little town: Shiloh. It was probably both the empty charming home that they purchased and remodeled and Theo’s part-time job at the local newspaper that got the couple involved in the mystery of the courthouse fire. You’ll enjoy experiencing the life of a southern town and getting to know all of the interesting people of Shiloh through T. M. Brown’s novel, “Sanctuary.” I enjoyed the story and found myself being drawn into the drama. Brown does a great job presenting his believable characters and helping the reader to experience the flowing story of mystery, struggle, hope, and healing.

From Randy Gravitt, InteGREAT Leadership.

T.M. Brown’s Sanctuary drips with southern charm. The story of the small town of Shiloh is both interesting and compelling. Its citizens have anguished enough and it’s time for the truth to come out. Thanks to the town’s newest citizens and the author’s character driven story all is revealed. If you’re looking for a good read, this is your book! – Randy Gravitt, CEO of InteGREAT Leadership and author of UNSTUCK

From Kelly Potts, Interviews and Reviews

“Sanctuary” by T.M Brown is one of the best Christian mystery novels I have read in a very long time. There is significance in the name of the little southern town where retired Theo and Liddy Philips move to – Shiloh. The reader very quickly senses that the Philips’ have moved to the most perfect small town U.S.A. but there is a realization that things are not as they seem. The seemingly perfect little town of Shiloh and its residents are in dire need of redemption and forgiveness and Theo and Liddy are the perfect couple to put things in motion.

T.M. Brown takes his time unraveling the complicated storyline and developing the wonderfully memorable characters. Probably my only complaint about this novel is that there are just too many characters. I had trouble keeping them all straight at times.

SANCTUARY BY TM BROWN

Summary:

Sanctuary introduces newly retired publishing executive, Theo Phillips, and his wife, Liddy, to the time-lost South Georgia town of Shiloh. They leave the shadows of Atlanta and move into a quaint home of notoriety. While making new friends, they discover twenty-first-century challenges threaten the town’s laid-back lifestyle. Theo’s interest in a memorial launches him into investigating tragic events that have left Shiloh unsettled. Theo and Liddy’s retirement dreams take a turn that could unravel both them and the idyllic life they and many others look for in Shiloh.

Review:

A novel by new author TM Brown

Theo and Liddy Phillips are newcomers to the nostalgic small town of Shiloh. Met with honest, relaxed warmth by most, this newly retired couple have arrived at just the right time. Mystery shrouds the town as the truth about a tragic fire sent a beloved coach to his death, and unsettled many. The strands of truth beg to be unraveled by Theo, a former journalist, and as he and his wife settle in, the story unwraps itself like a gift into their welcoming and compassionate lives.

Idyllic small town life and a bevy of believable and lovable characters left me wanting more as I finished the last chapter. Reading Sanctuary is like coming home to well-worn slippers and comfortable friends. A fantastic first novel by author and life coach TM Brown. I’m ready for the sequel.

An excerpt from a recent pre-launch review.

‘Time crept while I stirred and tossed in futile attempts to capture any semblance of actual sleep. Capitulation arrived shortly after four when I poured a cup of coffee and sat down in the living room…Okay Lord what are you trying to share with me?’ Theo Phillips, Main character Ch 20, pg. 169

When the author used the descriptor, ‘a couple of southern minutes’, I knew I was in for a treat as main characters Theo Phillips and his wife Liddy started retirement in their new hometown of Shiloh, Georgia.

(Thank you, Linda Pifer for your extensive review. Her complete review and others will be soon published on my author web pages.)
