A Memorable Historical Novel Of A Grand Canyon Expedition!

My favorite genre of reading material is Christian Historical Fiction, but even I have to admit that sometimes the stories can be quite similar to each other. So, when a new novel releases that is completely out of the ordinary and is just, well, “special” – I get really excited! A new book from Revell publishers written by Regina Scott was just such a story… Why? “A Distance Too Grand” transports readers to the unique setting and premise of a Grand Canyon expedition set in 1871!

Master suspense author Ronie Kendig is back with a brand new series from Bethany House Publishers! “Storm Rising” is the first installment in “The Book of the Wars” series, and while it is a completely new story all it’s own, fans of “The Tox Files” will also recognize several familiar faces as the two stories overlap slightly.

My Favorite Contemporary Romance In Years!

Are you looking for a book that will satisfy your inner romantic and your sweet tooth all in one clean, funny, well-written and absolutely charming novel? Well look no farther than “Sweet On You”, the last story in Becky Wade’s delightful “Bradford Sisters Romance” series. I have long been waiting for this one, largely because I loved Britt and Zander from the moment I was introduced to them in “True to You” (Book #1) and couldn’t wait to witness their story unfold.

Wow, What a Great Start to a New Series! – Guest Review by Hayley

“Come one, come all to the Brookstone Wild West Extravaganza!”  Who could turn down an invitation like that?  I certainly could not, and I’m glad to have accepted.  “When You are Near” by acclaimed author Tracie Peterson is the first book I have read by this author, but certainly will not be the last.  With a unique storyline centering around the star trick rider of the Brookstone Wild West Extravaganza, this novel is the first in a series to follow the stories of three ladies in this all-female performance.

Amanda Cabot’s “Cimarron Creek Trilogry” has reached its conclusion, as “A Tender Hope” released from Revell Publishers earlier this spring.

History + Science + Fiction = A New Elizabeth Camden Novel

Elizabeth Camden’s stories are always compelling and engaging, capable of sweeping her readers away with incredible, historical feats of science and engineering that are revealed through the lens of (fictional) people living in that time period. Ms. Camden’s newest release from Bethany House, “A Desperate Hope”, is another sequel to a couple of her previous books, (“A Dangerous Legacy” and “A Daring Venture”) but can very easily be read on it’s own, as well. Continue reading

The Romance (& Humor!) at Fort Reno Continues

Do you enjoy Christian Historical Fiction with a western setting and a flair for humor? I know I do! Regina Jennings’ newest novel from Bethany House is the second in her “Fort Reno” series, and is entitled “The Lieutenant’s Bargain”. Although recurring characters from “Holding the Fort” appear regularly, this is a story all it’s own – with plenty of sweet romance, a taste of wild west danger, a dose of laugh-out-loud humor, and some thought-provoking themes about faith, trust, idols, and love. It is also set during the Christmas season, making it a fun story to read in December. Continue reading
