On Magnolia Lane

On Magnolia Lane by Denise Hunter is the third book in the Blue Ridge Romance series, published by Thomas Nelson.

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.

I Declare War

I Declare War: Four Keys to Winning the Battle with Yourself by Levi Lusko

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 Thomas Nelson and Zondervan Fiction Guild sent me this title recently and the cover immediately caught my eye.  It’s cute and quirky this cover is while still portraying that it’s a murder mystery set during the 1930s! It’s one that definitely piques your interest and makes you want to learn more about it.

Shelter of the Most High

Shelter of the Most High by Connilyn Cossette is the second book in the “Cities of Refuge” series.  I haven’t always been a fan of biblical fiction, but this series and the author’s previous series have been absolutely incredible.  (Each book can work as a stand-alone but the characters do carry over.)

Fawkes

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:
