Great New Reads for You

Here are 3 great new book recommendations for you.
 
  Chasing Hope is the story of Sabrina, an Olympic hopeful whose dreams were shattered by a devastating diagnosis, and Brandy, a teenage misfit whose only hope of staying out of Juvie is to pick up cross country. The story follows their unusual friendship and their growth in faith.

This is such a great book. I had a hard time putting it down once I started reading it. This is Christian fiction at it's best. The story is full of struggles, friendship, and hope. And the ending is great.

*I received this book from Bethany House publishers in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own.



Stranded (Alaskan Courage) is the story Darcy St. James. Darcy is an investigative reporter on a cruise to help a friend. When her friend disappears it's up to Darcy to solve the mystery alone and save her friend.

Stranded is the third book in a series but believe me that doesn't matter because this book can be a stand alone. There is just enough suspense to keep the reader involved and I did not see the ending coming. Relying on God is what keeps Darcy going and her love and faith is evident throughout. There is also some romance thrown in there between Darcy and Gage- the tour guide (and evidently a main character in the rest of the series).

Promise, The: A Novel (The Restoration Series) is the sequel to The Dance. Tom has a secret he is hiding from everyone including his wife Jean. Jean has a secret she is hiding from Tom. When it all comes to light can their marriage survive?

I did not realize when I requested this book that it was a sequel but you don't have to read The Dance to keep up with events in The Promise. I kept reading this book with a hope for the ending and it was definitely met. I also found myself getting mad at the characters and then sad when needed like they were real people. These authors are definitely gifted story tellers.

*I received this book through Netgalley in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own.
