Mel Mesini grew up with a lot of hurt and pain. Her mother is known as the "crazy lady" and her dad somewhat pushed her away as she was growing up. But the incident with Jeremy (a man she loved) was the final straw that caused her to leave her hometown and head for the city. There she became a successful restaurant owner. Mel is also heavily involved in a virtual reality game on the computer where her avatar looks a lot like her. It's a virtual world, and unlike her real world, she is in complete control..or is she? Someone is shaking up her virtual world. Then she receives news that her father has been hit by a car and she is asked to return home to care for her mother. Jeremy Stiles, once a war vet, is now a policeman and knows that what happened to Mel's father is no accident. After several close calls, Jeremy feels that Mel is the target. Someone is taunting her in her virtual world and threatening her in the real world. Jeremy doesn't know much about Mel's virtual world but he does know that God is control of the real world and he just needs to be faithful. Will Jeremy be able to show Mel that God is big enough for her to trust Him, that she can always count on Him, before it's too late?
WOW! Real Virtue is an exceptional, well-written, spiritually enriching story that is going down as a favorite. I don't think I have ever read a story where a character was involved in a virtual reality world and the effects it can have. It was very interesting. I also learned a little something about schizophrenia which I found fascinating. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Mel and Jeremy. I loved the way Jeremy handled things. Most especially Mel and her mother. The world could sure use more Jeremys! This author did an excellent job of weaving spiritual truths throughout the story and bringing them to life by using some really great illustrations! You'll have to read the story to find out what they are. From beginning to end, the story is loaded with action, danger, mystery, humor and a really great romance. The ending alone is worth reading the book! The cover, as well as the title, does a excellent job of reflecting what you'll find in the story. Katy Lee has an easy writing style that just makes reading the story a real pleasure. If you're looking for a book that's hard to put down, has larger-than-life characters together with a great message then I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Real Virtue. Great job, Katy!

I'm a mom to three grown boys, a daughter-in-love and wife of 30 years to a great guy. I love coffee and reading and reviewing books. I am what you might call a "bookaholic". (Even more than that...a Kindleholic!) I also love to shop the thrift stores for interesting treasures! I appreciate the authors I know and love but I also like finding new authors and making new author friends.
