White as Silence, Red as Song

This is another recent release that I received from Thomas Nelson and Zondervan’s Fiction Guild.  It was compared to John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars, and I could see the similarities.

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.

Musings of Wonder

I’m a deep thinker.  Sometimes my mind trails off in wonder over something that many overlook or consider ordinary.  Today I just wanted to share some of the things that I contemplated over the past week to see if anyone else ever thinks about these things too. I don’t think we take time to stop and be curious often enough.  I’ve found that the more I travel and wander, the more I wonder.  Being full of wonder is often seen as exclusively a childhood experience, but I think adults need it too–we all have an inherent need to be wonder-full.  It’s that wonder that can and should project us towards compete wonder of God and His goodness, which results in praise.  And praise is how we fight our battles.

Murder at the Flamingo

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.  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.)
