New Books for a New Year

Several books releasing this year have captured my attention.

Here are a few I’m looking forward to reading. . .

Beth’s debut novel, Wish You Were Here, was a fun-filled read.

I anticipate more smiles as I enjoy her latest.

I’ve long been a fan of Dee’s work and am awaiting her new release.

Set at the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair, it’s sure to be fun.

I was privileged to read an early version of this story in manuscript form.

I’m eager to see the final version of Jody’s gripping tale.

I loved book one in Sarah’s Wings of the Nightingale series, With Every Letter.

This WWII story is sure to be every bit as captivating as the first.

I enjoyed the first book in Joanne’s Cadence of Grace series, Be Still My Soul.

I’m curious to see how Lonnie and Gideon face a tough trial in this sequel.

Katie’s debut novel, Wildflowers from Winter, was a moving read.

I’m eager to see the new heroine, Robin, find happiness after her loss.


What new releases are you looking forward to reading this year?

  • I am looking forward to these books as well, Keli! I’ve read books by all these authors and they are most definitely on my favorites list! Hope you had a wonderful holiday! Happy New Year!

  • Walt M says:

    In the immediate future (i.e. next 30 days)I’m looking forward to Iscariot by Tosca Lee and Out of Warranty by Haywood Smith.

  • Sherrinda says:

    All of those look wonderful to me! I haven’t been reading as much and am missing it! I will definitely have these on my TBR list!

  • I’m looking forward to all of these, as well as Dani Pettrey’s second book, *Shattered*. And obviously, I’m looking forward to Melissa Tagg’s debut, *Made to Last*, although I have to wait until September 15 for that one to release!

  • Just thrilled that my book is among your “looking forward to it” reads! What a great group! Dee’s cover is positively delicious. I want that dress!! And there are no words to equal Jody’s. *Grin*. Love seeing Katie and Sarah’s, two I’m really looking forward to and I was an instant Beth Vogt fan. Loved her first one.

  • Donna Pyle says:

    Fun reads, Keli! What a great line up. I’m looking forward to reading Louie Giglio’s new book, “I Am Not But I Know I Am: Welcome to the Story of God” and David Platt’s upcoming release, “Follow Me: A Call to Die. A Call to Live.”

  • Beth K. Vogt says:

    Thanks so much mentioning “Catch a Falling Star” in your list! (I’m eager for people to meet Kendall and Griffin.)
    I’ve read an early copy of Katie Ganshert’s second novel and loved it and I’m so excited for Melissa Tagg’s debut novel. My question for you: What are you working on, friend?

    • Keli Gwyn says:


      I’ve written two historical romances since my contract and will be starting another one soon that I’m really excited about. I leave the contemporary romance genre to great writers like you, Melissa, Katie, Krista, and others. 🙂

  • Melissa Tagg says:

    Every single one of those is on my “Can’t Wait For!!” list too! I’ve read Beth’s already and love it like crazy!

  • Marji Laine says:

    I echo Beth’s question. And I’m also looking forward to Dani Pettrey’s Shattered along with Katie’s Wishing on Willows. My list is full of more suspense and mystery this year.

  • Loree Huebner says:

    Looking forward to reading these!

    Happy New Year, Keli!

  • Susan Mason says:

    Hi Keli,

    These all look really good! I’m also looking forward to Julie Lessman’s new series which takes place in San Fransisco called “Love at Any Cost.”


    • Keli Gwyn says:

      Sue, thanks for mentioning Julie’s new series. I hadn’t heard about it yet. Since it’s set in San Fransisco, this native Californian will have to read it. 🙂

  • Thanks for sharing thist list, Keli!
    All of the books look and sound wonderful! I’m also looking forward to reading Melanie Dickerson’s latest, The Fairest Beauty. I haven’t read all of the authors you listed, but I will certainly add them to my TBR list for 2013 (maybe even on my new Kindle, though I’m still dragging my heels about that thing.;)

  • Oops,I forgot Karen Witemeyer. I think her latest is released in June. I love her books too! Any timeframe for your next book, Keli?

  • amyc says:

    I am most looking forward to release by you, Joanne Bischof, Laura Frantz, and Karen Witemeyer.
