This third installment in the series follows the story of Pastor Jack and Daisy Pendleton, owner of a local flower shop. We’ve been introduced to both of them throughout the first two novels in this series, but if you haven’t read them, this still works as a stand alone.
Wow, wow, wow.
I can’t even begin to explain this book. It’s complex, it’s simple, it’s humorous, it’s serious. It’s raw and real and honest. Levi strips away the masks we like to hide behind, and gets down to business. I smiled and laughed at some of his personal stories; they drew me in and I couldn’t put this book down.
The Christmas Heirloom: Four Holiday Novellas of Love Through the Generations is a collection of novella stories spanning a couple hundred years of time, from historical novellas to a contemporary one, that is written by four different authors.
Murder at the Flamingo is Rachel McMillan’s debut novel, so congratulations to her! The Thomas Nelson and Zondervan Fiction Guild sent me this title recently and the cover immediately caught my eye.

Fawkes by Nadine Brandes is another book I recently received from the Thomas Nelson and Zondervan Fiction Guild. My friend was over when I got it in the mail and he was interested in it, so I gave it to him to read, and if he finishes it sometime soon I’ll add his thoughts into this post. Meanwhile, here’s what the description of the book on Amazon says:
Sons of Blackbird Mountain by Joanne Bischof is the latest book I’ve received from the Thomas Nelson and Zondervan Fiction Guild. They have been sending me several books recently, so the next couple of Wednesdays will be highlighting Fiction Guild releases.
