September 2016 Releases in Christian Fiction

Coming September 2016

Want to know which new books will be coming your way in September?  Well, you’ve come to the right place, and there’s plenty to look forward to.  A Lady Unrivaled (the conclusion to Roseanna White’s Ladies of the Manor series) and Melissa Tagg’s Keep Holding On are probably at the top of my ‘most anticipated’ list, but I can’t wait to see what Mika Nappa has come up with in The Raven, and I’ve been thoroughly enjoying Virginia Smith’s Goose Creek B&B series – fantastic if you’re after a light read with a bit of heart. Also, if you enjoyed Susan May Warren’s Montana Fire series (wowsers!), you’ll be pleased to know CJ and Hannah’s story appears in a novella collection releasing at the end of the month.

I could go on, but how about I let you discover for yourself 🙂  If you would like more details on any of these books, clicking on the cover will take you to the Amazon listing (NOT affiliate links).

If you are a Christian author and would like your new releases listed in future posts, please contact me with some details via my contact page.
