Coming soon from Bethany House ~ Contemporary novels

Bethany continue to release books from some of my favourite authors and the covers are amazing!

The Edge of Recall by Kristen Heitzmann

Tessa Young, an up-and-coming landscape architect who specializes in the design and creation of labyrinths, has immersed herself in the mythological, spiritual, and healing aspects of the elaborate structures. She also is searching for God and hoping to make sense of the nightmares that have plagued her since childhood. When Smith Chandler, an estranged colleague--with whom she'd half fallen in love a dozen times before catching herself every time--calls to propose a project he claims is the opportunity of a lifetime, she reluctantly agrees to check it out.

Smith is reconstructing a pre-Revolutionary War abbey for wealthy clients. Among its remarkable features is an overgrown labyrinth. Unable to resist, Tessa accepts his offer to work with him. Soon she is immersed in the project of a lifetime. But one evening, after weeks of work in the labyrinth, Tessa and Smith are attacked. While protecting Tessa, Smith is stabbed, and the nightmare begins...again.

All Through the Night by Davis Bunn

Wayne, scarred physically and emotionally, has a background in special-ops he's trying to forget. But he gets his arm twisted into helping a quirky group of seniors who've been scammed out of their retirement. Breaching the con man's high-security island estate, Wayne recovers the stolen money in an action sequence worthy of a Hollywood blockbuster. Case closed.

A savvy young lawyer, though, is intrigued by Wayne's success and wants to hire him to crack another puzzling case. Tatyana's wealthy employer thinks he's been visited by…an angel? Did a messenger from God in a pinstripe suit truly bring a divine warning, or is this merely another cruel hoax?

As the two battle unknown enemies within and without, Tatyana fears for her boss's life. She must trust Wayne to solve the mystery, but can she trust him with her heart? Wayne's cynical veneer begins to crack as Tatyana's confidence allows a chance to glimpse himself in a new light. What if he were visited by an angel? With a whispered message, a world of possibilities unfolds.

Deep under the earth, Grant Borrows has supposedly fallen to his doom. But when something crawls out of that pit—something dark and merciless with unrestrained power—it proclaims itself "Oblivion" and begins molding the planet into a twisted, barren, dangerous world. A Dark World. Is it Grant Borrows, returned from the dead? Or something more sinister—something no human ever imagined possible?

As Grant's remaining friends finally learn the ultimate truth behind the events that have shaped their lives, they secretly gather for one last battle. A final showdown between good and evil that will prove to every soul on earth that even in the bitterest twilight, when all is lost, hope still lives.

Desperate to forget what happened to him in Iraq, Ty Sawyer flees to Wyoming to fulfill a promise by taking Soren Anderton, an old friend, backcountry fly-fishing one more time. But the trek to an idyllic trout lake soon becomes a journey into a deadly past as Soren confesses to a crime committed decades ago.

Sawyer barely has time to contemplate the question of what constitutes justice when nature enacts her own revenge. Trapped in a desperate race back to safety, Sawyer must own up to his own guilt or risk being consumed.
