November Releases in Christian Fiction

coming-november-2016

Last week was such a bumper reading month I’m only just now getting around to posting about November’s new releases!  And as I post, there are already a bunch of fabulous new releases out there to grab.  I’ve already reviewed Nicole Deese’s The Promise of Rayne and I  highly recommend this if you’re after a contemporary romance.  I’m also looking forward to reviewing Katherine Reay’s A Portrait of Emily Price later this month.  I’ve been hearing plenty of great things about it.

For those who are after some Christmas fiction there are some fantastic romance novellas by Jennifer Rodewald, Melissa Tagg, Sarah Monzon, and Susan May Warren (the last is an extended version of the novella that is included in the Candy Cane Kisses anthology that released recently).  We also pay a return visit to Goose Creek B&B courtesy of Virginia Smith, and Roseanna White has a wonderful full-length historical, Giver of Wonders, that I can’t wait to read.

And, of course, that’s only a few of the highlights.  Below, you’ll find November’s new releases in the following categories: Amish Fiction, Biblical Fiction, Christmas Fiction, Contemporary Fiction, Contemporary Romance, Historical Fiction, Historical Romance, Mystery, Romantic Suspense, Speculative, YA Fiction.  What will you be reading in November?
