Miracle in a Dry Season by Sarah Loudin Thomas
(Bethany House; ISBN 9780764212253; ebook ISBN 9781441264114; $14.99)
The INSPY Board chose this novel “not only because of the talent of the author, but because it is a unique and engaging story,” and describes it as a “refreshing tale of miracles, love, and laughter.” When drought comes, a young mother is pulled into the turmoil of a town desperately in need of a miracle. Her unique gift divides the town in two, bringing both gratitude and condemnation.

Meant to Be Mine by Becky Wade
(Bethany House; ISBN 9780764211089; ebook ISBN 9781441264091; $13.99)
The INSPY Board calls this novel the “epitome of Christian romance.” After his spontaneous marriage to Celia Park, bull rider Ty Porter quickly realizes he isn’t ready to be anybody’s husband. Five years later, when he comes face-to-face with Celia—and the daughter he never knew he had—can he prove that theirs can still be the love of a lifetime?
