Coming in October 2016!


Well, what a line up we have for October 2016!  I don’t know about you, but I feel like I’m drowning in my TBR pile at the moment.  What a way to go, huh?!

I don’t even know where to start with my highlights for the month.  Ronie Kendig has a prequel novella coming out for her new Tox Files series (and it’s currently free!)  I don’t know about you, but I feel like I’ve been waiting  f-o-r-e-v-e-r  for this series to arrive!  And don’t forget the second book in her fantasy series, Abiassa’s Fire.

I’m honoured to be a part of both Lynn Austin’s and Connilyn Cossette’s release teams, and am looking forward to reviewing each of their new releases here on my blog.  Then there’s Kara Isaac’s Can’t Help Falling and the first book in Susan May Warren’s new Montana Rescue series.  And if you like your suspense to tackle some culturally relevant issues, then you should check out Alana Terry’s Kennedy Stern series.  The fourth book in this series releases towards the end of the month.  And that’s just for starters!

Below you will find the new releases for October listed according to genre – Amish, Biblical, Christmas Romance (yes, it’s that time of year already!), Contemporary Fiction, Contemporary Romance, Historical Fiction, Historical Romance, Mystery, Romantic Suspense, Speculative (including Fantasy, SciFi, and Dystopian), and Suspense/Thrillers.

Happy reading!
