I love to feature
Christian fiction on Write Thinking because there are so many wonderful
authors writing for this market. My goal is to highlight at least one
novel per week and sometimes two. Watch for the featured books on
Mondays and/or Wednesdays. Most of the books I’ll feature, I haven’t
read because they are new releases (and besides, I’m way behind in my
reading), but I have read and enjoyed previous books by many of the
authors who are featured on this blog.
A State of Grace by Traci DePree
About the author:
Personal note: When I first made the move from writing general mass market romances to writing Christian women’s fiction, Traci DePree was one of the editors who worked on my books. I believe she edited seven of my novels, first at WaterBrook and then at Tyndale. She had a "great eye" for catching things that needed caught, and I loved that she never messed with my voice while still helping me produce better books. Then, lucky readers, she caught the writing bug herself. Her books are warm and endearing and not to be missed.
Official blurb: Traci DePree is the author of four novels, including the Lake Emily series by WaterBrook Press. She, her husband, and their five children make their home in a small town in rural Minnesota.
About the book:
Unveiling her deepest secret could save her daughter’s life.
Kate Hanlon is at it again. Minister’s wife, stained-glass artist, and sometimes sleuth, Kate Hanlon discovers more than she bargained for when she visits a woman whose daughter is battling leukemia. Before she knows it she’s on the road uncovering clues that could be the girl’s very survival.
Book #2 in Mystery and the Minister’s Wife, A State of Grace picks up where Through the Fire left off as Kate and Paul Hanlon learn about life in small town Tennessee. Follow Kate as she comes to know the town and its inhabitants. Admire her persistence, intelligence, and strength of character as she slowly, but surely, begins to unlock the town’s secrets.
Each novel in the MYSTERY AND THE MINISTER’S WIFE series is a page-turner, a good old-fashioned "whodunit." They’re books that bring truth to light, that reveal dreams, and that show that trust in God always trumps fear and anxiety.
