Safe Passage by Carla Kelly

I’ll get her out of Mexico, but I’m not doing it for you. I’m probably not even doing it for Addie. This one’s for me. 

It’s been a long time since Ammon has seen his wife, and ages since she threw her wedding ring at him. It still stings when he thinks about it.

But there’s the Mexican Revolution to consider. Ammon and the other Mormons have fled Mexico, but his wife is not among them. Ammon assures his father-in-law that he’ll do what he can to find her and bring her back. But in the middle of a war, that’s much easier said than done. He doesn’t even know what she’ll do when she sees him.

In the midst of all that fighting–both in the war and in their marriage–Ammon and Addie just might learn something about themselves and about each other. Follow Ammon and Addie’s story as their journey takes them through guerilla warfare and rocky romance–and rediscover what love can do in the face of adversity. 

The Reluctant Blogger by Ryan Rapier

Dr Schenk,

I don’t know if what I’ve written amounts to a breakthrough or not, but I hope you know how difficult this was for me. I also hope this proves how serious I am.

Ever since he lost his wife, Todd hasn’t  been the same. Everyone seems to expect him to just forget Marci and get married again–especially when he meets Emily. But dating again is hard when Todd has three kids of his own, not to mention an overbearing father and friends with their own problems.

Todd knows he’s in a bad place. That’s why he went to a therapist in the first place. So when Dr. Schenk threatens to stop their sessions unless Todd puts in more effort, he grasps at the last available straw: a personal blog that will force Todd to confront his demons. 

Championing friendship, love, and family, Ryan Rapier deals adeptly with the everyday struggles we face as well as the strongest ties that keep us together. You’re sure to fall in love with this magnificent tale of redemption, forgiveness, and new beginnings. 

Emma: A Latter-Day Tale by Rebecca Jamison

Not Looking for Love: Single woman (23) seeks best friends to chat on the phone, shop the clearance racks, watch chick flicks, try out messy cooking projects, and eat Dove dark chocolates.

Emma isn’t so good at the whole life-coaching thing. Her first client ended up with a broken heart and is threatening to relapse in her bad habits. Now Emma has problems of her own to deal with, and they all start with one name: Justin.

Justing is her best friend, so it’s hard for Emma not to feel betrayed when she suspects he is falling for her childhood rival. And she knows she’s losing him despite her best efforts. How is she supposed to help other people when she’s drowning in her own failures?

Fans of Jane Austen’s Emma will love this modern retelling of the classic romance novel. Fall in love with Emma’s latter-day tale of redemption, forgiveness, and the quest for true love.
