New this Week in Christian Fiction (April 1, 2014)

Spotlight on…

Scarlett Says by Julie L Cannon

This romantic comedy’s description caught my attention as I was browsing new releases, so I thought I’d feature it here along with a list of this week’s forty (yes 40!) new releases in Christian fiction.

Description (From Publisher, Abindon Press):

One woman’s love of literature inspires dreams she never knew she had.

For 30-year-old literature lover Joan Meeler, there is no heroine so admirable as Gone With the Wind’s Scarlett O’Hara. Joan, with her quiet nature and love of good food, falls shockingly short of Scarlett’s outspoken passion, strength, and 17-inch waist. Yet as the secret hostess of an advice blog called Scarlett Says, she discovers she’s quite adept at dispensing advice in Scarlett’s devil-may-care tone.

Joan is happy to live vicariously . . . until she meets Charles, a Christian and faithful Scarlett Says reader, who suddenly has Joan dreaming of something more. Since Scarlett has never let her down, Joan digs deeper and deeper into her heroine’s mind, searching for something to calm her rising insecurities. But her search falls short, and Joan realizes that she must look within herself—and to God—to uncover the inner confidence she never knew she possessed.
