Reader's Choice - Romantic Suspense/Mystery

GIVEAWAY

The best part of summer is the hot new releases publishers are sending our way! SQUEEEP!!! I'm so excited! And I know you are too so here's a chance for you to win a book from your summer wishlist.

Here's how it works: You recommend Christian Fiction with release dates in July, Auguat or September 2018 (up to three a day) and you have a chance to win 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. :-(


IT'S ROMANTIC SUSPENSE/MYSTERY GIVEAWAY DAY!

To be entered in the draw just leave a comment (or 3) below, including the title(s) of the book(s) in the Romantic Suspense/Mystery genre you would like to read.


Romantic Suspense/Mystery

A full-length story or novella collection where mystery is an important part of the plot. The hero or heroine (or both) are often in peril (more so in suspense). Can be set in any time period. May cross genres such as YA, Amish etc and may include 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.


BUT YOU GOTTA FOLLOW THE RULES!


Publication dates must be
July, August or September 2018
Each day is genre specific so
only submit books from that genre
Christian Fiction books only please!
You can offer up to 3 suggestions a day
BUT
they need to be made in
three separate comments
(makes it easier for me to tally)
No email entries this week
(to hard to keep track of 
due to # of responses)
IMPORTANT: entrants must submit their own selections
(not piggback on somebody else's login) IMPORTANT
Open to International Readers
I'm all about spreading the good news
about Christian Fiction
all over the globe!

It's helpful if you include your email (using AT and DOT instead of @ and . to protect yourself from spammers) but you only need to add it to one of your comments (per day.) If you choose not to include your email then it's up to you to contact me if you are a winner.


Draw will be held and winner announced on
Sunday June 17 2018

    1. I get a tad shy of giddy when I contemplate upcoming romantic suspense books. Eeep! Looking forward to more Military K-9 series.

      Trixi, your second choice, Material Witness by Vannetta Chapman was published in 2012...unless maybe they are doing a re-release of it? Which would count, but I can't see that anywhere on Amazon or GoodReads.

      Delete
    2. Well, peanuts and fudge! I saw this on CBD.com and when I did some further digging, it looks like they slapped a brand spanking new cover on it. Original release is 2012...I really hate when publishers do that because I get all excited for a new novel. Sigh.

      So I'll switch it for:

      #3 Her Fear by Shelley Shepard Gray (July)

      Delete
    3. I agree. These publishers are getting sneaky. Like publishing a 'new' novella collection only the novellas have all appeared in other collections. That's happening a lot in the Amish genre. So not fair.

    1. Love that Amish suspense series by Shelley Shepard Gray. Can't wait to read this next one. She's amazing! Looking forward to your other two picks as well. Looks like we'll be happy...if a mite fear stricken...readers this summer. Good luck, Diana.

    2. Hopefully it'll strengthen my poor, aching neck muscles. You know...from constantly looking over my shoulder! lol

      Delete
    3. Oh, good point -- we can count that shoulder checking has part of our exercise plan. Plus, the elevated heart rate from reading suspense should count as a cardio workout too. We're going to be in great shape by the end of the summer. :-)

      Delete
    4. And all the toe-curling should be helpful to the calf muscles! ;-)

      Delete
    5. Teehee! And ab workouts from the butterflies flitting about in our tummies. Oh...and I'm sure assuming a correct swooning posture is beneficial to core strengthening.

  20. Protected Secrets by Heather Woodhaven looks good. Female US Marshall Delany protecting a murder witness from a crime organization. The witness has an adopted daughter too, probably the child Delany gave up for adoption years before, so the plot thickens!

    I always love seeing all the books everyone finds and are looking forward to, so much fun!

  37. Question - would Auschwitz Lullaby by Mario Escobar, Thomas Nelson, to be published in August - be considered crime/suspense/thriller or just historical? Is based on true story. I saw it on ChristianBooks. It would certainly be beyond frightening.

    1. Frightening, but not suspense. Just historical. So it would fit there or on the general Christian Fiction day (Friday.) And it's based on a true story!
