Unfortunately, Caroline discovers she has not put her past behind her. But God has a plan.
Country music’s most eligible bachelor, Toby Nash, doesn’t even realized he’s stopped believing in love, at least not the kind written about by poets.

Vanquishing both old and new demons together, they learn about life, about sacrifice, about survival and eventually learn to believe in love again. Through the trials they face, and the mistakes they make, they learn that God indeed has a plan.
Author’s Note: #2 in the DND series covers many issues including child abuse, rape, alcoholism, incest and mental illness. My intention is not to dwell on these negative things but to help those who have been touched by these things by pulling them out of hiding, shining a light to expose them, and hopefully bring the injured parties closer to God through His healing light. My intention is to remind everyone that real love does exist. It is beautiful and it is possible, for we can “do ALL things through Christ who strengthens us.”
“When his disciples heard it, they were exceedingly amazed, saying, Who then can be saved? But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.”
Stunned by her own mother’s unbelievable betrayal, Lisa Lewis, begins a mad dash across the country searching for a home she's never known.

And then, he comes across a fiery, red-head in need of being rescued. But does he rescue her, or does she rescue him? God is so amazing.
Lisa has never known a real home, or family, or even understood how most people live and interact with each other. And she has definitely not known God. Chaz, who grew up going to church every Sunday and Wednesday night, who’s loving family has been there for him every step of the way, cannot find his way out of the darkness.
In the small town of Pine Forest, Lisa experiences the wonders of home and family for the first time in her life. But somebody isn't quite so happy about her arrival.

More importantly, her discovery that God is real leads Chaz out of the darkness and into the light
Martial arts superstar, Ricky Kino, is unhappy with his "playboy" style of life. He makes three decisions: Get back to God, get back to his foundations, and to go after what (and whom) he really wants. Coincidentally, the moment he gets home, strange things begin to happen, things that begin to tear the Kino family apart. But God’s timing is perfect.
A phantom from the past asserts himself into the Kino family, intent on destruction. Seeds are planted and weeds grow rampant, trying to break apart and destroy the firm Kino foundation. Ricky must step in and take control in order to save his family and protect those he loves most in the world.
Welcome back to the Kino family. This one is a fun and wild ride that will motivate and inspire everyone. Discover how facing trials and tribulations can either destroy us, or make us powerful. How we choose to handle what God presents us with will determine the outcome. We can be God’s warriors. God is with us.
“Weeds Grow rocks. First, I love the way Eric’s and Shelley’s story continues to grow. Ricky is definitely all grown up and more devastating than ever. So many twists and turns all over the place I feel as if I’m in a high speed car chase. Loved this one!”
“After finishing the fourth McCartney Green novel, I still can't get enough. The characters have touched my heart. I feel as if I have lived the events right along with them. Everything is so real. McCartney, you are amazing!”
Special Agent Keegan Tanner is racing to turn in the evidence he’s gathered while working undercover investigating a ruthless child-trafficking organization. When his cover is blown, he barely escapes with his life. Desperate to save the next batch of children slated for shipment, he speeds toward the field office, but a freak accident brings his plan to an abrupt halt.
When kidnap victim MacKenzie Daley realizes there’s a possibility that her ransom will not be paid she begins to understand how expendable she is. She feels worthless, and very much alone. But God has a plan.
Mark and Joey Adams, sons of Shelley Kino and stepsons of Grandmaster Eric Kino, have grown up and are taking the world by storm. Both men of God, both strong and striving to do God’s will. Mark, a fledgling attorney and part-time martial arts instructor for the Kino schools, and Joey, Ameritech Security’s top agent, usually end up doing everything together, so it’s no surprise when they become interested in sisters. It’s also no surprise that their relationships throw them into a world of intrigue and violence. Their training under the Kino umbrella comes in handy as they come face to face with the dark secrets that threaten to destroy those they love. Though we don’t always understand God’s plan, we can rest assured that He is still working like He did back in Biblical times.
“I wondered how McCartney was going to fit both brothers into one book adequately. I should never have doubted her. She hits, once again, on some sensitive subjects and also teaches us that not everything is black and white all the while entertaining me with action-packed suspense. Loved it! Wow!”
“Oh, yes, I knew Mark and Joey were going to grow up to be like their role models, hunky, deadly, sensitive men who aren’t afraid to make things right. So enjoyable! And I love Bella and Breez, totally likeable characters. Oh, and the kids... I can see more books!”
“Amazing! I couldn't put it down. It's impressive the way McCartney pulled me in. The moment I started reading she took me into another world, one that isn't perfect. Yet we learn that love and family can overcome even the worst obstacles. I love the characters and McCartney takes you to the edge of reason as they try to decide whether to cross those fine lines of morality. I absolutely enjoyed every minute of this story!”
“As usual, I really enjoyed the book! Every book in The Dandelions Series is the best one. Now, I am truly looking forward to reading about June flower, our little psychic! I find her to be my favorite character.”
This book was supposed to be the 8th and final installment of The Dandelions Never Die In Jesus’ Name Series, a gritty, action-packed, Christian Drama, romantic saga. But God had other plans. So, DND #9 The Circle of Life-In Jesus’ Name is coming soon!
In #8 June Flower-In Jesus’ Name:
Eric and Shelley's Kino’s daughter, Nobel prize winner, Dr. June Flower Kino, is on the verge of changing the course of humanity when she discovers a consistent baseline for curing every disease.
To others, it seems the psychic high genius daughter of the renowned Kino family has everything going for her, but she knows differently for she never recovered from having had her heart broken five years earlier. Though it seems having thrown herself into her work was bringing big rewards, not just for her but for the entire world, maybe her results are a little too successful.
Powerful companies run by greedy men, have decided they like things just the way they are and if they can’t put a stop to Dr. Kino’s work, well then they will simply put an end to her life, for curing all diseases would certainly topple the world’s economy.
In her darkest hour, June Flower is stunned when a man in a camo t-shirt steps out to block her path and drags her into the jungle. When she discovers he’s been sent to protect her, her world is turned upside down and then her bruised heart finally begins to heal.
The entire cast of characters from the previous 8 books gather to celebrate the warriors of the Kino dynasty. But God lets them know He is not through with them.
Note from Author:
Number 8 used to be the final installment, but God let me know He is not through with me. Last year my husband and I both became ill. We both were transported to the hospital by ambulance where I spent three months, most of that time in a coma and on a ventilator. When I awoke, I discovered my husband had passed away just the day after I became comatose. I was wondering why God took my husband and left me. But when I was in a coma I was shown many things and visited by an angel, and about three months after I returned home, God let me know that I still had work to do. Part of that work was to rewrite all eight of my original series as Christian Novels, and the other part was to write a new novel, which will help to teach God’s warriors, teach then how to be strong and how to occupy until Jesus comes back.
I didn’t really write the 9th book. For I was literally shown the scenes to write during the night as I slept and then given confirmations during the day that I am still on the correct path. The rewriting of the series and writing of this new novel have been the most rewarding and satisfying and spiritual experiences in my life and I am so grateful every single day that Jesus has shown Himself to me. Praise God and thank You Jesus.

This book is the prequel to the DND in Jesus' Name Series. This book is an allegory. It is about my coming to the awareness that not only does God exist, but Jesus Christ is the true Son of God, the One, the Messiah. He is real. They are real. Really real. I’ve had an angel appear to me, I’ve audibly heard the voice of God, I’ve had many supernatural confirmations.
The road has been long and somewhat painful but I am grateful for every single inch of it. After having written eight full-length novels and six spiritual self-help type books, I thought I was done with writing. But God has spoken to me again, and because I want to do His will, I have finally come to rewrite this book and the others the way He has directed me.
For years now the Lord has been whispering to me to pick up my computer, and do what I've been called to do. I kept putting it off. So many excuses. And then Covid came and took my beautiful loving husband...took him back to be with his Father. I too had Covid and was in a coma for almost three months. I didn't know my husband had passed. While I was in that coma, another angel came to visit me. A different one then the one mentioned above. The angel showed me many things, including what to do to heal. Once I woke up and began to heal, God put it on my heart that I now have no excuse. Get to work.
Father, I ask for blessings and healing for each and every person who reads this book. I pray you will heal bodies, minds, emotions, relationships, circumstances, addictions. I ask Father, for anyone who reads these words, that You will answer their questions, and show them, as You have shown me, that You ARE real! I plead the blood of Jesus over all of these things, Father, and do so in the mighty and powerful name of Your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen
