The monthly “Three for the Books” post is where I feature new (Hot Off the Presses), best selling (Topping the Charts), and award winning (Cream of the Crop) Christian fiction books. I select one title to feature in each category, as well as providing links to where you can browse additional newly released, best selling, and award winning titles. Have you read any of these featured titles? Any others you’d like to give a shout-out? Comments are always welcome!
Hot Off the Presses
Luther and Katharina by Jody Hedlund releases this month from WaterBrook Multnomah. This popular author of historical romance is venturing into the realm of historical fiction with this novel based on the lives of Martin Luther and Katharina von Bora. (Plus, there’s an online discussion of this title coming up next week.)
Topping the Charts
Trial Run by Thomas Locke appears on the CBA Best Sellers list for October in the Fantasy/Sci-Fi category. Published by Revell, it’s first in a new techno-thriller series called Fault Lines. The book trailer makes a great introduction to this title’s intriguing premise.
Cream of the Crop

This short contemporary romance was first published by Zondervan in September 2014 (available in ebook and audio formats), and re-released as part of the Autumn Brides novella collection (available in paperback, ebook, and audio formats) in August 2015.
