"If you are a woman who has wondered if you matter, if you are a woman who is concerned about the world, if you are a woman who has ever felt lost, afraid, or defeated . . . you need Women of Strength by Tristi Pinkston. When you read this book, you will discover your true worth, learn just how valuable you are, and find ways to turn the tide of evil flooding our world today." --C.S. Bezas, author and motivational speaker

“Hilariously intriguing, Targets in Ties is like a non-alcoholic margarita, the perfect blend of sweet, tart, and salty, and topped with an umbrella that makes it all the more appealing.” ~Nichole Giles, author of The Sharp Edge of a Knife 

"Move over, Miss Marple, Ida Mae Babbitt is on the case! Tristi Pinkston's endearing sleuth in sensible shoes is at it again. With a clever plot and the unforgettable image of Ida Mae on a midnight gallop in her flannel pajamas, who could ask for more?" - Liz Adair, Whitney Award-winning author of Counting the Cost

"Tristi's collection of recipes proves low sodium does not have to mean bland. I absolutely loved the carrot cake, and the other dishes I've tried are really tasty too!" - Heather Justesen, author of Blank Slate and others

"I highly recommend Bless Your Heart for your family.  My kids have absolutely loved each recipe they've tried.  And as their mother, I feel good knowing they're eating delicious, nutritious meals."  - Danyelle Ferguson, author of (dis)Abilities and the Gospel

"Tristi Pinkston tells a great story. Well-defined characters, humor, and suspense combine to make Dearly Departed a satisfying read."   - Nancy Campbell Allen

"A delightful book of mirth, murder, and mayhem. You'll get a hoot out of Ida Mae Babbitt and her society of senior sleuths." - Gale Sears

"I love Ida Mae and her friends! This second book was every bit as fun and enjoyable as the first." - Rachel Ann Nunes

"Tristi Pinkston has been compared to a meshing of Mary Higgins Clark and Erma Bombeck, and I couldn't agree more wholeheartedly. I've always known Tristi was a brilliant editor, but she has proven once more how good she is at the craft of writing. I won't spoil the book for you, but if you're looking for a good clean read, a great mystery, and a dose of laughter, pick up Secret Sisters. You won't regret it." - Karen E. Hoover

"I must say I was impressed. Not only did she keep my interest throughout every suspense-filled page, but she added a bit of humor and romance as well. This book is sure to appeal to just about any reader, with its tough female character who's not afraid to stand up for herself and an even tougher hero that isn't too caught up in his manhood to put on a dress and a little makeup to save the girl. I found myself on the edge of my seat one moment and laughing my head off the next." - Christine Bryant

"The early saints sacrificed much and brought forth a strong, righteous prosperity. I am grateful Tristi took the time to research and write her family's story in such a profound and moving way. It is a story that has forever altered the way I will think about some things, and it has given me cause to look into the stories of my own ancestors and learn from the experiences and sacrifices in their lives." - Michele Paige Holmes 

"You'll need a case of Kleenex to get through this book. I couldn't put the book down till I'd finished it from beginning to end. Its a great story and so heart-warming and filled with so much human emotion.  Not only do I enjoy the story, but find I learn a lot about past history that I'd never known before. I just can't say enough about this book. Pick up a copy - it's worth every dime!" - Sherry Woodard

"I certainly have nothing to regret for having purchased this excellent historical fiction saga. As (the characters) find themselves inserted into Topaz, their life changes dramatically, as does the life of their son who determines, as so many young Japanese American men of that era did, to prove their worth and their loyalty to their American home, even if the country didn't return that trust. Tristi Pinkston is an excellent young writer, with empathy far beyond her years for a long gone era. I recommend this book highly to all who seek a good read." - Gordon Ryan
