Library News from Author Lyn Cote

My friend Lyn Cote's newest historical saga, The Desires of Her Heart, has been released by Avon Inspire. Look what Library Journal has to say about it:

"After gambling away his family's estate, Kilbride decides to pack up and move the family to the new Texas territory, where land is free for the taking. But 25-year-old Dorritt knows her stepfather doesn't have the sense or character to lead them there; instead, she relies on their wagon train's rugged scout to guide them. Dorritt trusts Quinn until she discovers his prior business dealings with Kilbride. Dorritt, who wants to be free of her stepfather so she can live her own dreams, discovers, though, that her dreams may include a man after all. In her new series launch, the RITA Award–winning author (Blessed Assurance, "Women of Ivy Manor" series) demonstrates her skill at creating strong female protagonists in compelling stories that will captivate historical romance readers."

Library News from Author Terri Blackstock

My friend Terri Blackstock has become one of the most widely read novelists in Christian fiction today. In fact, her books have sold six million copies worldwide. How bout that? Known for her “Up All Night Fiction,” Terri has enjoyed more than 25 years of success as a novelist. Terri makes her home in Mississippi, where she and her husband Ken are enjoying their empty nest after raising three children. (One of their daughters, I'm glad to say, has enjoyed several of my books!)

Here's a little about Terri's new novel, Double Minds...As talented singer/songwriter Parker James struggles to make her mark on the Nashville music scene, she finds the competition can be fierce – even deadly. When a young woman is murdered at the recording studio where Parker works, Parker is drawn into a mystery where nothing is as it seems. Unraveling the truth puts her own life at risk when she uncovers high-level industry corruption and is terrorized by a menacing stalker. As the danger escalates, Parker begins to question her dreams, her future, and even her faith. Does stardom even matter anymore?

The recent edition of Romantic Times says: “Blackstock’s superior writing will keep readers turning pages late into the night to discover the identity of the culprit in this amazing mystery. The unique setting and peek into the Nashville music scene are fascinating. Suspense lovers are in for a delightful treat.”

Library News from Author Jill Elizabeth Nelson

Hey guys,

My friend...I call her that because, although we've not met, we kind of travel in the same circles and admire each other's work....anyway, Jill Elizabeth Nelson has a new novel out with Steeple Hill Publishers. It's called Evidence of Murder. I hope you'll check it out. Here's a paragraph from Jill about the book, followed by her web link.

The photographs Samantha Reid uncovers in her new store are shocking. Horrifying. And dangerous. This new evidence could reopen a decade-old multiple homicide case that someone wants desperately to keep closed. And when the evidence comes out, a reluctant Samantha is drawn straight into the spotlight. Then she meets Ryan Davidson, the last surviving member of the murdered family. In spite of herself, she’s drawn in by his need to find the truth. Together, they work to unravel the mystery, while the killer works to keep the secrets buried—forever.
