Reader's Choice - Contemporary Romance

GIVEAWAY


Spring has sprung! (in climates south of me, at least.) And that means publishers are getting ready to shower us with new releases. Everybody -- SQUEEEPPP -- together! I'm so excited!

So here's how this thing works: You recommend Christian Fiction with release dates in April, May or June 2018 (up to three a day) and you have a chance at winning one of your recommendations! BUT it's a little more complicated than that so be sure to read ALL the details before entering.

PLEASE NOTE: email entries are not eligible this week. :-(

To be entered in the draw just leave a comment (or 3) below, including the title(s) of the book(s) in the Contemporary Romance genre you would like to win.


Contemporary Romance

A full-length story or novella collection set in present day (1980 up). May cross genres such as YA, suspense, Amish including dual timelines.

How does it work?

Easy peasy! Make recommendations in the comment section each day and if you win, you win the book you suggested.

    1. Great choice Diane! I read a review copy, of the 21 of Denise's books I've read this is in the top 3 along with Dancing With Fireflies and The Goodbye Bride! My fav in this series.

      Delete
    2. Tracey, Dancing with Fireflies was my fave. I still haven't seen the movie they made on Hallmark of The Goodbye Bride. Shame on me! Glad to know Honeysuckle Dreams is so good. REALLY excited to read it now!

      Delete
    3. Wow -- can't wait to read Honeysuckle Dreams now! I adore an emotional read and this one sounds like it will deliver. Must stock up on tissues before May. lol

      Delete
    4. I love books that take me on an emotional roller coaster, too! Sounds like a definite tissue alert here.

  3. 3) Just Let Go by Courtney Walsh (love the cover!) (June 5)

    1. I'm not surprised about the Becky Wade book, Diana, because you pointed that one out during the last Reader's Choice as an almost contender but for a month. lol

      I still haven't read Hometown Girl by Courtney Walsh and here's another one looming on the horizon. I must get my act together before June! Good luck!!!

      Delete
    2. I found plenty of almost contenders in this search as well. Wahhh... sniff sniff.

  5. 2) Things I Never Told You 5/8
    Beth Vogt has a new book, exciting!

  6. 3)Where Hope Begins by Catherine West 5/22

    I had a hard time picking the third book, is was a toss up between this one and Just Let Go (who has a guy named Quinn and that gorgeous cover) but in the end I chose West's book, she had me at her "ancient gardens and musty bookstores of the small town she sought refuge in" description. Saving Courtney's book for Friday :)

    1. It never rains but it pours when it comes to fantastic spring book releases! How can we bear to choose one title over another?! lol

      I'm sooo excited for Willow and Corbin's story!!! I want to know what all the angst is about! And Beth Vogt's and Catherine West's books are now on my radar thanks to you. Woot! Love both these authors. And I'm happy to go musty bookstore browsing with any heroine. :-) Good luck, Tracey.

    2. Another one out May 1st I can recommend is Susan May Warren's Storm Front. Ty Remington is my new fav Montana Rescue hero!

      Delete
    3. OOoohhhh -- I don't have the last Montana Rescue books yet....waiting impatiently for my number to come up on the hold list at the library. And now I'm intrigued by Ty and why Brette left him a year ago if he's your favourite Montana Rescue hero. What was she thinking? That she wanted her own novel, I guess. lol Thanks for the tip. Details have been recorded.

      Delete
    4. All will be revealed...and it makes sense to her own wounded soul. He's my favorite type of hero because when he loves you he will NEVER give up on you. And we'll pray for you, swoon. I may have just talked myself into a reread, lol.

      Delete
    5. Just checked the library and they've processed Troubled Waters and my hold will be available soon. Eeeepppp!So I'll be ready for Ty. Swoon.

      Delete
    6. Yay!! I know this is a spring thing, but you can go over to Amazon and check out Pete and Jess's story Wait For Me is up!

      Delete
    7. Wowzer!!! That one sounds gripping and there's even a bit of suspense it looks like.Woot!

      Delete
  7. Oh my! Yesterday I could only find one historical book on my wish list... but today - so many great books to choose from!! What to pick what to pick ;)

    2. Kav, you could always print out a copy of the book cover and use that to wallpaper with :-)
