So let’s start with suspense. This year includes authors Terri Blackstock, Emily Carpenter, and Kimberly Belle. These books are compelling page turner from start to finish. That is what a good suspense book should be. Readers will want to read their next books.

|The Marriage Lie by Kimberly Belle|
|Burying the Honeysuckle Girls by Emily Carpenter |
Next let’s turn to historical fiction. These books are true page turners with compelling stories. New to the group this year is Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate. This story covers the scandal in the Memphis children’s home. Then we have Tracie Peterson’s Summer of the Midnight Sun book one of the Alaskan Quest series.
Women’s fiction also includes fun reads. I would also refer to this category as the beachy reads. The authors included Elin Hilderbrand, Wendy Wax, and Mary Alice Monroe. These stories are easy to follow and have readers turning pages, and provide a great escape.
The best nonfiction of 2017authors are Lysa Terkeurst and Stephanie Rische. They each shared their journey in life with valuable life lessons about following Christ. You never know what God’s plan for you might be.
Here is to great reading in 2018! Happy New Year!
