Bethany House ~ February, 2010 Contemporary Releases

Here's another two from Bethany that I am really looking forward to!

Not so sure about the girl's eyes on Never Say Never, though ;-)

Never Say Never by Lisa Wingate

Kai Miller floats through life like driftwood tossed by waves. She's never put down roots in any one place--and she doesn't plan to. But when a chaotic hurricane evacuation lands her in Daily, Texas, she begins to think twice about her wayfaring existence. And when she meets hometown-boy Kemp Eldridge, she can almost picture settling down in Daily--until she discovers he may be promised
to someone else. Daily has always been a place of refuge for those the winds blows in, but for Kai, it looks like it will be just another place to leave behind. Then again, Daily always has a few surprises in store--especially when Aunt Donetta has cooked up a scheme.

Hunter's Moon by Don Hoesel

After a long absence, novelist CJ Baxter returns to his hometown of Adelia in Upstate New York for his grandfather's funeral. Facing a messy divorce and doubting his talent as a writer, CJ is forced to confront secrets that have tormented him since childhood. To complicate matters, his brother Graham is running for a Senate seat, and the family is intent on keeping the most damaging secret--surrounding a murder and its cover-up--in the family, for fear the truth, were it found out, would ruin Graham's chances at winning. But with CJ airing their dirty laundry in his books, the family is forced to deal with him. They decide on a familiar method for handling the problem: a hunting trip, and just the setting for an accident to happen. CJ must find a way to avoid being killed while exposing their toxic family secret, regardless of Graham's lofty ambitions. More important, CJ must come to terms with the newfound faith that compelled him to return to Adelia in the first place.

Well, I gotta say, Don knows how to pick the names of his characters. CJ just has this certain ring to it, don't you think? LOL

Something about guns on covers that draws me in. I vote for Hunter's Moon! :)

OKay, I know what you mean about the eyes, Rel. I think I'd have a headache if my eyes stayed in that position for more than two seconds. Ha ha.

I think it's the 'smoking' of the gun that gets me on Hunter's Moon.

And the eyes...maybe that's what it means to have eyes in the back of your head. ;)
