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.

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.

A ‘Lit’ Update (yes, I cringed at myself)

I try to post book-related things on Wednesdays, and I haven’t finished a book this week, so I don’t have one to post about specifically, but I decided to write a post about what I’m currently reading and what I’m looking forward to reading next.  I usually do this just at the end/beginning of a year, but since summer’s a great time for reading, it’s always useful to know some good books to pick up.
