  1. I'm so excited for all the new fiction coming out in the next few months...so many books, so little time...lol!! I'm going with an author I've not heard of, but the book sounds good :-)

    #1 Abiding Mercy by Ruth Reid (July)

    Looks like this might be (?) the beginning book of a new series called Amish Mercies.

  2. How 'bout a shout-out for novellas?

    #2 An Amish Gathering: Life in Lancaster County by Beth Wiseman, Kalthleen Fuller & Barbara Cameron (August)

  3. #3 An Amish Summer: Four Novellas by Shelley Shepard Gray, Amy Clipston, Kathleen Fuller & Kelly Irvin (June)

    teamob4 (at) gmail (dot) com

    P.S. I see lots of ones coming out by Amy Clipston, but since I haven't kept up with them, it would be too hard to get into without reading every single one...lol! Oh the dilemma of a reader sometimes!

    1. Trixi, that second one -- An Amish Gathering -- was published in 2009. At least, that's what I found on CBD. So, do you want to save this one for Retro Saturday and choose another?

      Funny, I was just looking over my Amish bookshelves this week and came across Ruth Reid. Realized I haven't read anything by her since her angel series so I'm excited about this one. And what a powerhouse of authors in An Amish Summer -- excited because Kelly Irvin's one is set in Bee County. Woot! Good luck, Trixi.

    2. Well, dag-nabbit!! I went to CBD.com and clicked on their "Coming Soon" under their fiction selection and it listed this as August 2017. After doing more research, I see where it did release in 2009. I really dislike when they do that. It may be a re-release or something, I dunno! :-( Anyway, thanks for having my back on this one. I'll make a different choice:

      #2 Their Pretend Amish Courtship by Patricia Davids (part of the Amish Bachelors series)~ June 2017

      I really love the LI line of Amish stories :-)

      Delete
    3. Oh -- I just read this one. Delightfully funny! I love Patricia Davids. Good luck, Trixi.

    4. Did you say funny? Right to my tbr!! Although I tend to always put Patricia Davids on there. :)

    1. I'm all in a tizzy over that last one, Tammi. I LOVE Amanda Flower and her quirky cozy mysteries. I knew she had a new Amish one coming out but I didn't realize it was this summer. Eeeeeeepppp!!! And what a killer title. Her books are so clever. Good luck, Tammi.

    2. I haven't read any books by her yet, but
      the cover and title, as well as, the description intrigued me.

  13. I love Amish Fiction, so choosing just three books is very hard! Here are my choices:

    1. I love the Amish genre too. Excited about the Divide -- and a little scared too. LOL I find the theme unsettling -- it almost spooks me out more than a suspense -- but I have to know what happens next! Good luck, Melody.

      Delete
  16. Well, don't shoot me yall, but I'm going to be honest, It has to be more than just Amish fiction to draw me, it has to have some other interesting component, an historical aspect, a suspense, or journal/letter angle (those always appeal to me). And I like to try a new author every month or so.

    So, my first pick has the letter draw, a pretty cover and is a new author to me;

    #1 The Promise of a Letter by Kathleen Fuller 8/15

I dunno -- I think The Divide freaks me out because I know how helpless I'd be in that situation and I kind of had a taste of it when we had a huge power outage that lasted for days a number of years ago. But, like you, I'm still going to read The Divide. Good luck, Terrill.
