Shade ~ Coming soon from John B. Olson

John Olson’s upcoming release, Shade, is another book I can’t wait to read! I love John’s work ~ just imagine a guy who can write great action scenes and include just the right level of romantic tension!

The good news for me is I have an ARC that I will be getting into shortly!! The bad news is you will have to wait until Shade releases in October, 2008 from Broadman & Holman.

Here’s a preview to ensure you note it for your TBR pile :)


You will not fear the terror of the night.” —Psalm 91

A monstrous waking nightmare is pursuing graduate student Hailey Maniates across San Francisco to Golden Gate Park where she is rescued by a towering homeless man. She seems able to read her rescuer’s mind, but is it just a delusion? Doctors diagnose her as a paranoid schizophrenic …

Sneak peek at A Constant Heart by Siri Mitchell

I’ve been hanging out to see Siri’s cover for her new book ~ isn’t it gorgeous? I can’t wait to read what I know will be a fabulous story :) Be patient – it releases in October, 2008 from Bethany. In the meantime, check out Siri’s new look website, here.

In a time and place where the only luxury forbidden was love, how can two hearts find each other?

“Trust was a valuable commodity at court. Traded by everyone, but possessed by no one. Its rarity was surpassed only by love. Love implied commitment and how could any of us commit ourselves to any but the Queen? Love implied singularity and how could any of us benefit another if our affections were bound to one in exclusivity? Love was never looked for and rarely found. When it was, it always ended badly.”

Symphony of Secrets by Sharon Hinck

Amy Johnson’s plans for a concert career hit a discordant note when unexpected motherhood finds her to taking up teaching instead to support her daughter.

When she is finally noticed by the Minneapolis Symphony’s enigmatic new conductor, Amy’s lifelong desire nears fulfilment. When mysterious accidents begin to befall her musical colleagues, Amy determines to use her investigative skills, finely honed from years of reading mysteries, to uncover the saboteur and save the Symphony and her fledgling career.

Symphony of Secrets swept me away into the world of talented flautist, Amy Johnson and her slightly neurotic outlook on life, parenting and the neighbours next door! Sharon Hinck effortlessly pens this engaging tale with smart characterisation, light intrigue and the fascinating machinations of a working orchestra. Amy’s befuddled interactions with her teenage daughter Clara, and her sudden desire to become a cheerleader, are funny and voiced beautifully. The definitions of musical terms
