Coming in early 2018 from Bethany House

BethanyHouseearly2018

Bethany House never disappoints when it comes to producing high quality, story specific covers and their early 2018 releases are no exception. Even if the cover doesn’t particularly appeal to my taste, there’s always something to love about nearly all their covers.

I adore the covers for Debra White Smith’s Austen retellings. These stories first released in the mid 2000s (Harvest House) and I have the originals with covers not as cute and fresh. These are fun romances and I hope they release the other three based on Sense & Sensibility, Northanger Abbey, and Mansfield Park.

TNearly2018

TNZ Fiction (Thomas Nelson and Zondervan) are back with some well loved authors along with relatively new and upcoming writers, Lindsay Harrel and Lauren K. Denton.

Cover wise, my picks are Jim’s, Lindsay’s, and Lauren’s, with Terri’s finishing off her connected trio of covers well. Sarah and Kristy’s are pretty and the remaining covers are indicative of TNZ’s high quality but don’t particularly catch my eye.

Jim’s story sounds brilliant, as always, and I’m intrigued by Lauren’s and Lindsay’s. As a student of the French Revolution, I can’t go past Kristy’s and I’m keen to read the conclusion to Terri’s

Who is Bethany?

I collect hope like I collect favorite songs.

I’m a sojourner . . . not always an easy journey, but I’m not surprised by that. The best adventures are the kinds where you grip your fellow travelers hard by the hands and pull each other along. So far, I’ve just explored Earth, but my love for adventure and old stories make me yearn for a chance to wander in other realms in the not-too-distant future.…

With all the mistakes she’s made and the uncaring things she’s done–even to her own family–she can hardly believe that happiness will find her, especially when Gabe Kendall, her first crush and her first kiss, rides back into her life atop a buckskin mare.

A former Marine, Gabe is at loose ends after serving a prison sentence
