Ace Collins in his new book, “Service Tails book coverService Tails” Book Two on the Man’s Best Hero series published by Abingdon Press gives us More Stories of Man’s Best Hero.

From the back cover:  Heart-tugging true stories of the courage, faith and loyalty of remarkable service dogs.

Not all heroic dogs wildly toss themselves into lifesaving situations. Some save lives simply by their incredible commitment to duty and service. Some lead the way to independence for people whose disabilities were supposed to limit their lives.

In Service Tails: More Stories of Man’s Best Hero, prolific author Ace Collins introduces us to leaders whose entire lives are wrapped in the banner of service. Their stories are remarkable snapshots of the value of vision and teamwork, as well as devotion to duty and unconditional love and acceptance–stretching the way we see both canine and human potential. Their training was intense, their loyalty unquestioned and each step of the way they constantly adapt to better serve those they lead. These unforgettable dogs are more than heroes; they are models from which we can learn how to love and serve unconditionally.

This book showcases 12 true stories of service dogs. Mr. Collins tells us that this is not a book that spotlights heroic dogs wildly tossing themselves into lifesaving situations. Yes, some of the dogs in this book have saved lives, but their purpose is service. Some save lives simply by their incredible commitment to duty and service. Some lead the way to independence for people whose disabilities were supposed to limit their lives. I recommend it highly, especially if you are a dog lover. I do believe you are going to want to reread this one sometime and will put it on your keeper shelf.

Book Review: “Hollywood Lost” by Ace Collins

Ace Collins in his new book, “hollywood book coverHollywood Lost” published by Abingdon Press takes us into the life of Shelby Beckett.

From the back cover:  “She must have been pretty before someone strangled her.”

Deep in the heart of Hollywood’s Golden Age, someone is murdering beautiful women. The victims are polished, manicured, and far too young to be dead. Behind the glamour and wealth, behind the opulent parties and screaming fans, a ruthless killer lurks. Homicide chief detective Bill Barrister believes the murderer is somehow connected to the crown jewel of the movie industry:  Galaxy Studios, home of the box office rivals Flynn Sparks and Dalton Andrews and a young woman named Shelby Beckett.

Thrust into a Gatsby-like lifestyle far different than her childhood in the Oklahoma dust bowl, Shelby only wanted to escape the Great Depression and find work. Little did she know, her job in the Galaxy wardrobe department would make her popular with the city’s most elite-and make her the target of a serial strangler. As hard as it is to fit into a city known for fortune and greed, Shelby must maintain her small-town morals…and try to stay alive.

Hollywood, 1936, not the place where moral values were running high. There is a serial killer who is strangling women. The cops narrow down their field of search to Galaxy Studios. That’s where Shelby Beckett works. Now the cops set Shelby up to be the next victim of this serial killer. Let’s face it if there is ever going to be a book that is going to have you reading super fast so that you can flip to the next page trying to find out what is going on next this is the book. A Serial Killer, loads of suspense and mystery are oozing out of this book. And did I mention there is romance? Mr. Collins throws in all kinds of sub-plots that keep the story moving briskly. I do not think you will figure out who the murderer is until Mr. Collins tells you who it is. This is an excellent thriller that you will not want to put down until you actually finish it.

Book Review: “The Cutting Edge” by Ace Collins

Ace Collins in his new book, “The Cutting Edge book coverThe Cutting Edge” published by Abingdon Press takes us into the life of Leslie Rhoads.

From the back cover:  When your entire future is destroyed, why would you bother to rebuild?

Leslie Rhoads may have grown up in a small town, but is on the verge of becoming a supermodel in the Big Apple, when the 24-year-old is chosen to grace the cover of Style magazine and star in the controversial Passion Nights perfume ads. But before she can step into the spotlight, Leslie is assaulted by a drug gang and disfigured with a broken scotch bottle. Without her perfect face, she is lost and no amount of surgery can ever make her what she once was.
Now trying to hide her face from the world, Leslie encounters more trouble as she seeks to rebuild her life: unrequited love, thoughts of suicide, and her assailant out to finish the job. Little does she know that a young girl named Angel will turn it all around, showing Leslie the joy and potential in life and the fact that love truly is blind.

Ace Collins understands that what we judge others by is the face.  If the face looks good then we say the person is good, whether that is the case or not.  Leslie is about to take over a prime perfume account and become what she always dreamed about:  a supermodel.  That dream is shattered by a gang attack and a beer bottle.  Her face is badly scarred and irreparable.  Now what does she do?  And on top of everything her attacker wants to finish the job he started.  I think this is a brilliant character study with the focus on beauty.  Mr. Collins throws in all kinds of sub-plots that keep the story moving briskly As Leslie begins to move on with her life.  Through Mr. Collins’ excellent writing skills we come to understand Leslie and want her to be healed from her almost crushing pain.  Mr. Collins has given us themes of devastating loss, and forgiveness and how we can deal with them.  This is a fun read that gives us a lot to think about.
