Coming in early 2011 from Zondervan

Zondervan have their newest 2011 releases on their website but Amazon hasn't posted them yet so pre order links will have to come later. Each of these books are sequels (although they are also standalone novels) to 2010 releases.

I'm especially looking forward to Lisa and DiAnn's stories and I'm sure Kingsbury and Blackstock fans won't be disappointed.

Which ones appeal to you? Looks like cover models are still popular in these kinds of novels!

The Fire in Ember by DiAnn Mills

John Timmons’ life is planned and orderly. He cares for his mother and four younger brothers, and their future depends on him to keep their Colorado ranch profitable. Ember Farrar (Bert) has run away from
her lawbreaking family in search of a new life. But, when she attempts to return a horse that her brother had stolen, ranch hands believe she is a thief and a boy and they plan to hang her. John, who is also a deputy marshal, breaks up the hanging. After paying for the stolen horse, he takes the boy home to work off the debt. Later he learns Bert is a girl who refuses to tell him who she is and why she possessed a stolen horse. When ranchers report stolen cattle, Bert is a natural suspect.

John is touched by Bert’s sweet spirit and natural gift of music. Surely she’s not a cattle thief. Bert fears for their lives when she is forced to either help her brothers steal or put the Timmons in danger. When John thinks Bert has betrayed him, he ignores God and turns revengeful. Will John learn who Bert truly is? Will their lives ever return back to normal?

The Jill Marie Landis one looks interesting. And wow, Karen Kingsbury has certainly told a lot of stories that started with the Baxters hasn't she?

Nicole said...

Love the cover of Terri's new one, and it's the only one that interests me (but that's just me ;] ).

Sara said...

I've just recently gotten into the Take One series by Karen Kingsbury and have been introduced to Bailey! I still need to finish the series but I love Bailey and Cody, and am glad to see that they are getting their own series.

It looks as if we are going to have plenty of good reading to help us pass those long winter evenings that are going to be coming sooner than we think. Karen Kingsbury and Terri Blackstock have long been favorites of mine but it is exciting to see how many new writers are appearing on the scene.

As a voracious reader, I am just thankful that there are now more and more writers who are writing books that are clean and have a clear message about God. Some day, with God's help, I hope to be among the ranks of those who are featured!

These all sound really good. I'm not sure about some of the covers though for instance the girl on the cover of Leaving looks happy which, to me, doesn't fit the blurb.

Thanks for sharing these upcoming books...more to add to my already shamefully large 2011 wishlist!

XOXO~ Renee

Yippee...another new one from Terri Blackstock. Can't wait for that one.
