January 2015 releases!

The start of a grand new year of fiction! To kick the new year off, we have a broad spectrum of genres - historical, mystery/suspense, and fantasy. While I generally enjoy fantasy novels, I have actually read very little Christian fantasy, since it can be difficult to mix magical elements with biblical truth and not have the story come out weird and forced. But descriptions of Thomas Locke's story, as well as the short, free e-book teaser, have captured my interest and I am excited to give it a shot.

Like a Flower in Bloom Beyond All Dreams Hidden Agenda
Historical 

Like a Flower in Bloom by Siri Mitchell (Bethany House)

A botanist's daughter finds herself dragged from the world of science and, to her dismay, thrust into society.


Beyond All Dreams by Elizabeth Camden (Bethany House)

A map librarian in the Library of Congress discovers a discrepancy with the records of her father's shipwreck, and she must turn to a dashing congressman for help.


Mystery/Suspense:

Hidden Agenda by Lisa Harris (Revell); Southern Crimes, book 3

Emissary
In way over his head, an undercover cop's only chance at survival hinges on the aid of the drug lord's daughter.


Fantasy: (also known these days as "speculative fiction")

Inside a young man with a talent for dead languages, a fantastic power suddenly awakens, but is it enough to combat a great and terrible evil that threatens the realm?
