Spring Reading: May 2016 New Releases

Happy May, BHP readers, and what a month it is for new releases! All contemporary, but from there, we’ve got a wide range of settings and plots for you to enjoy. Explore the glitz and glamour of Old Hollywood, look for clues at a beautiful Illinois lake, relax at a struggling California resort with a few unexpected guests, and chase down the stalker of a professional football player. That’s not even getting into the different settings and plots of the novella collection, Sins of the Past, by three of our top romantic suspense authors.

Here are a few extra fun events around release month:

The Mystery and Mayhem Tour: Rescue one of Dee, Dani, or Lynette’s characters from a kidnapping by following the trail of clues through the blog tour. The mystery’s dramatic conclusion will be at a Facebook party, where you can also chat with the authors and win prizes.

Her One and Only Party: To celebrate the launch of her latest Porter family novel, Becky Wade is having a party tonight, May 5. You can hear about how sales during the first week go toward a charity that’s close to Becky’s heart…and she’ll be giving out gifts as well!

As usual, be sure to click on the cover of a book to read an excerpt!

Traces of Guilt by Dee Henderson

Traces of Guilt

State Police Detective Evie Blackwell is launching a new task force dedicated to reexamining unsolved crimes in Illinois. While looking at old evidence for a couple of missing-persons cases in Carin County, she pulls out a few tenuous leads—with startling implications.

Her One and Only by Becky Wade


NFL star Gray Fowler is receiving death threats. Out of concern, his team hires a protection detail, but Gray is indignant when he meets his bodyguard. How can an attractive woman half his size protect him? Former Marine Dru Porter is, in fact, more than capable. But as danger rises, can Dru and Gray entrust their lives to one another?

Someone Like You by Victoria Bylin

Someone Like You

New Christian and single mom Julia Dare has her hands full running her event-planning business and raising her son. When a wedding brings her to Caliente Springs resort, she’s shocked to discover the resort manager is Zeke Monroe, her college sweetheart.

After a red carpet accident leaves her blackballed, Lauren Summers would do almost anything for another chance at her dream of a career in fashion. Does that include making a deal with a reporter to befriend a former Hollywood star, learn her secrets—and then betray her trust?

Sins of the Past by Dee Henderson, Dani Pettrey, and Lynette Eason

Sins of the Past

In this collection of gripping novellas from the top authors of Christian romantic suspense, sins of the past lead to danger in the present. In Henderson’s Missing, a sheriff races to find his mother. In Pettrey’s Shadowed, the parents of the McKenna clan investigate a death. And in Eason’s Blackout, a woman is targeted by a criminal on parole.

Here’s a question, readers: if you could pick three authors to write a linked novella collection together, which would they be?

  1. I would choose Elizabeth Camden, Amanda Cabot and Lynn Austin. All write in different times or eras but all appealing to the same type of reader. I think! lol. They all appeal to me. 🙂

  2. Do they need to be all Bethany House authors? If not I would say a 1700’s Collection by Laura Frantz, Lori Benton, and Jody Hedlund, I suggested it one time to Lori Benton. She said she didn’t think could write something that short! 🙂 Oh, another great trio would be a Regency Collection by Julie Klassen, Kristi Ann Hunter, and Kaye Dacus.
