New Christian Fiction Releases for your TBR List

In case you missed it, not only did I put out a new book baby this week, but so did several other authors. All of these are either expressly Christian fiction or are clean fiction written by Christian authors.
Get your pens ready, you’re going to want to jot these down and check them out!

Never Too Late by Susan L. Tuttle:

First on our list is one for the Contemporary Romance fan. If you haven’t read a Tuttle book yet, you’re in luck because Never Too Late is book 3 of a series, so you’ll have plenty to catch up on and binge read.

Never Too Late is available on Kindle Unlimited.

Once, her art brought her fame. This time will it bring her love?

Widowed homemaker Rachael Stark isn’t quite sure what comes after her only child leaves for college. To fill her suddenly quiet hours and scrawny bank account, she needs a job. But painful memories prevent her from resurrecting her former art career, and “motherhood” isn’t much of a résumé. When her best friend needs help recovering from a gunshot wound that occurred in the line of duty, she is there. Finally, someone to take care of.

Evan Wayne won’t let his injury keep him from being a police officer. His dedication to protect the innocent stems from the guilt he carries over having failed his childhood friend. What he needs now is to recover and get back on the streets. Instead, he’s handed a myriad of light-duty tasks by his captain—one of which involves heading up the department’s entry into the town’s annual mural contest. He’s not an artist, but he definitely knows one. And he’ll take any excuse to spend more time with her.

When Rachael agrees to paint for Evan, she never expects to also be drawn into finding answers for the mother of a missing child. As the two friends work side by side on the mural and the case, their feelings move beyond friendship. But with Evan unwilling to leave his dangerous job, and Rachael unwilling to risk another loss of a loved one, their fears may paint over the promise of a beautiful future together.

Where Shall I Flee by Anne Clare:

Get ready history fans, because Clare is about to take you on a wild ride in Italy during WWII. You’ll find her novels historically rich and engaging. And if you’re new to Clare’s work, you’ll find an additional novel for you to binge read.

Where Shall I Flee is available on Kindle Unlimited.

When she had signed up, she’d thought she was ready. Ready for a combat zone. Ready to prove that she could be brave. The sick feeling in the pit of her stomach, stronger and longer lasting than any bout of seasickness, foreboded that maybe she had been wrong.

1944

Lieutenant Jean Hoff of the U.S. Army Nurse Corps and infantryman Corporal George Novak have never met, but they have three things in common.

They are both driven by a past they’d rather leave behind.

They have both been sent to the embattled beachhead of Anzio, Italy.

And when they both wind up on the wrong side of the German lines, they must choose whether to resign themselves to captivity or risk a dangerous escape.

Where Shall I Flee? follows their journey through the dangers of World War II Italy, where faith vies with fear and forgiveness may be necessary for survival.

A Castle for Christmas by Stephenia H. McGee:

Romance, Time Travel, and History … This sounds like a winner for a lot of readers. It’s the fourth book of its series, so, you guessed it!, lots of binge reading in your future with this series as well.

A crown meant for a princess. A medieval castle. And a one-way ticket to an unforgettable romance.

A life-changing diagnosis sends Avery Stuart on a last-chance Christmas road trip. The cheery bed-and-breakfast offers a festive way to spend the holidays alone. But when she finds her name listed on an ancient family tree next to an English baron, her trip suddenly takes a startling turn—no fairy godmother included. She might have gotten the Cinderella dress, but her prince is more beast than charming.

On the verge of seeing his people starve, Sir Robert de Northwood must seek a bride with a hefty dowry in order to salvage what war has wrought. The night he must choose his wife, a strange foreign princess arrives at Northwood Castle dressed in enough jewels to feed his barony for a year—and she’s entirely alone. Sir Robert is intrigued by the fascinating woman and offers his protection by way of a sensible marriage arrangement that will benefit them both. But when the mysterious Princess Avery of Gardenia claims to be from the future, how much will he risk losing in order to keep her close?

♥ The Back Inn Time series short novels are fun, faith-filled stories of what it might be like to suddenly experience life in a different time. These clean historical romances are packed with humor and adventure. Perfect for fans of dual timeline or time slip stories and Christian historical romance, these books answer the question every historical fiction fan wonders—what would it be like if I went back to that time? If you enjoy the wholesomeness of Amish, Western, or frontier fiction and adore romantic comedies, then a visit to a seaside Victorian inn where you can “step back inn time and leave your troubles behind!” is for you.

Don’t miss these other titles from Bestselling author Stephenia H. McGee

Last Wish by Valerie Howard:

I have something here for the Contemporary Women’s Fiction fan. And get this. It’s book 6 of its series! That’ll keep you cozy and happy all month long.

Last Wish is available on Kindle Unlimited.

Miranda Lewis doesn’t have time for cancer. Not when she’s filling out her Ivy League college application, competing with her boyfriend for the title of class Valedictorian, and counseling emotionally unstable underclassmen at all hours of the night. But medical tests don’t lie. A deadly tumor is taking over her brain, threatening to shatter her hard-earned dreams to dust.

Homework competes with plans for treatment, and Miranda’s stress only increases when her well-meaning parents schedule the local pastor’s kid to come over and pray for her healing every morning before school.

When Miranda learns her health is even worse than the doctor’s originally thought, she decides to look into religious matters, including life after death. Just in case. But placing her trust in an invisible God is harder than it seems, and when she lands in the hospital on the most important night of her senior year, her worst fears are realized. Where should she place her faith now? She must choose wisely. Before it’s too late.

Austin Reed is a slacker who barely squeaked through high school graduation last year. Working in a boring bait and tackle shop when he hates everything about fishing, he’s sure his worthless life will never go anywhere.

Then his dad gets the bright idea to volunteer Austin to pray for a girl who has a brain tumor. Unable to get out of the uncomfortable assignment, Austin puts as little time and energy into his dad’s request as possible. But when Austin learns Miranda’s health is worsening, he knows he’s to blame for his lack of faith. He promises to step up his game and help Miranda on her quest to find the answers to her pressing religious questions.

Just when things seem to be headed in the right direction, Miranda collapses on the night of the senior dance. As her life hangs in the balance, Austin has to decide once and for all how he’s going to make his mark on the world.

The Engagement Cover by … ME!

This one is just right for the Christmas Contemporary Romance fan. It is book 2 of its series so you have some room to binge read if you haven’t read Project Scrooge yet.

The Engagement Cover is available on Kindle Unlimited.

He nearly ruined her life. Now he’s the only one who can help her.

After a disastrous dating app experience that nearly destroyed her modeling career, Teresa Bradford knows what she wants, and Justin Reynolds seems to check every box. But when her family pressures her to bring him home as her fiancé in order to ease the mind of her dying grandmother, their relationship takes a weird turn, and his absences create the need for a fill-in fiancé.

Since his mom’s passing, and with his dad working out of state through the holidays, Alex Landry misses the feeling of home. So, when his friend Marc Bradford asks him for a strange favor with the promise of family for the holidays and all the tamales he can eat, he’s all in. What he didn’t expect was Marc’s sister to be the girl he’d gone on an awful date with two years ago.

Committed to a fake engagement to fulfill a dying woman’s wish, Alex and Teresa form a rocky friendship. As first impressions change and it becomes clear that Alex fits in better with her family than Justin does, Teresa is forced to reconsider what she wants. She’s drawn to both men for different reasons, but the one who nearly ruined her life might be the one to help her find what truly matters.

There you have it. FIVE great new reads released just this week. I hope you found something amazing to read. Better yet, I hope you found some amazing new-to-you authors to really sink your teeth into.

Let me know in the comments if you’re already a fan of any of these yet or if you’re picking some of them up for the first time.

Happy reading!
