More from Thomas Nelson in 2011 ~ Contemporary & Suspense

Here's some more from Thomas Nelson ~ you can't go wrong with a Bug Man novel :)

Robert Whitlow's novels are great and I can recommend his Santee series, now reprinted.


Nick of Time by Tim Downs

Tying the knot may be the toughest thing Nick Polchak has ever tried to do.

Nick Polchak is comfortable with bugs. Their world is orderly. He knows where he stands and exactly how to interpret the signs they give him. But a fiancée and an upcoming wedding? Not so much.

That's why—a mere four days before the nuptials—Nick finds himself driving to Philadelphia for the monthly meeting of the Vidocq society. Being among a group of forensic professionals consulting on cold cases will surely allow him to feel useful and normal.

But while there he discovers that a close friend has been murdered . . . and in classic Nick style, begins to follow the trail of evidence rather than returning to his fiancée. Fearing that his one-track mind won't lead him home by Saturday, Alena and three of her dogs go to track him down.

When she finally finds him, nothing is as Alena expected . . . because the twists in this case will surprise even the most dedicated Bug Man fans.

Water’s Edge by Robert Whitlow

Sometimes the smallest towns hold the biggest secrets.

Ambitious young attorney Tom Crane is about to become a partner in a big-city law firm. One final matter has to be cleared from his docket--the closing of his deceased father’s law practice in the small town of Bethel. Killed in a tragic boating accident, John Crane didn’t leave his son anything except the hassle of a bankrupt estate.

Then, within twenty-four hours, Tom loses his job, his girlfriend, and his cat. Job didn’t have it much worse.

Returning to Bethel with his pride ground to powder, Tom’s plan to quietly shut down his father’s practice and slink out of town runs into an unexpected roadblock – two million dollars of unclaimed money stashed in a secret bank account. Tom follows the money into a tangled web of lies, theft, and off-shore financial transactions manipulated by powerful men who will do anything to stop him from discovering the truth.

Life Support by Robert Whitlow

A tragic accident in the Carolina mountains leaves a young man paralyzed and in a coma. Soon, a fierce legal battle erupts between the man's wife who wants to terminate life support and the young man's father who wants to keep his son alive at all costs. Caught up in the turmoil is a young female attorney who takes the case and finds out that her client's husband isn't the only person in need of life saving measures.

A critically acclaimed author and practicing attorney, Whitlow’s fast-paced, true to life story reflects the power to heal that ultimately comes only from above. A combination of intrigue and inspiration, Life Support exemplifies why Whitlow has quickly become an award-winning and acclaimed novelist.

Life Everlasting by Robert Whitlow

This remarkable story will captivate fans of John Grisham and James Patterson. In it, Whitlow confidently weaves romance and mystery into this signature and suspenseful legal thriller.

Book two in the Santee Series picks up with Baxter Richardson’s recovery from a near-fatal fall from a cliff. Married to Rena, a suspicious and highly unstable woman, Baxter is faced with a choice of staggering ramifications.

While Rena Richardson is desperately trying to conceal her crime, her attorney, Alexia Lindale, struggles to put the pieces of the case - as well as her own life - back together. As the mysterious circumstances surrounding Baxter’s brush with death are revealed, the focus shifts from Life Support to the question of Life Everlasting.

Sweet Sanctuary by Sheila Walsh & Cindy Martinusen~Coloma

"Without the storm, how would we know the sweetness of shelter?" -Ruth

Out of the clear blue, Wren’s Grandma Ruth arrives on her doorstep, dreaming of a grand party to celebrate her 95th birthday. Wren and her young son Charlie love the idea, but it quickly gets complicated: Ruth wants Wren’s estranged siblings to attend and she wants Wren to sing her all-time favorite song: “His Eye Is On The Sparrow.” It’s the very song Wren sang one fateful day during her childhood . . . and Wren hasn’t sung a note since.

Though she’s glad to have Grandma back in her life, Wren’s sleeping on the couch in her own house now . . . and worried about the expenses piling up. After all, her job at the community library is in jeopardy after budget cuts, and the fancy music program she wants for her son is getting farther and farther out of reach. What’s more, Paul—the guy she's drawn to yet avoids—ends up being a major part of an important library project.

With family arriving and old wounds resurfacing, Wren’s about to fly when she discovers something special—a gift of grace beyond her wildest dreams.

oh look at that...no faces. AT ALL. i won't lie. this confuses me greatly. if the romance/historical fiction is catering to women with having a female face on the cover..then who are these books being marketing to? Men? Women who don't like faces?

Yay! Another Nick Polchak novel. I love the Bug Man. Can't wait to read it.
Haven't read Robert Whitlow yet. His books look good. I like to switch back and forth from Historicals to more action-oriented books. Looks like Thomas Nelson has some great ones coming out.

Oh good! Just read the first sentence in the preview of the new Bug Man novel. No more! Can't spoil it. Fun.

And a new Whitlow novel that gets back to his strengths. Didn't care for his last series. I've read the "Life" books. The first one was better than the conclusion. Looking forward to the new one.
