Beth  (canadianbeth) | 112 comments I have read Crisis Shot, Chasing Secrets and Deep Extraction. Christmas Ranch Rescue and High Desert Hideaway are on my Kobo, although the author for the latter one is given as Jenna Night.

There also seems to be a Stiletto subset for Romantic Suspense and Jordyn Redwood won for Taken Hostage, which is also on my Kobo.

Nominees:
The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck by Bethany Turner Loved this novel!!

With Love, Wherever You Are by Dandi Daley Mackall Just finished reading this one. It's a lovely WWII novel based upon letters the author's parents wrote to each other.

Magnolia Storms by Janet W. Ferguson I liked this one ok, but not as much as a couple of others by the author. Her debut Leaving Oxford was especially wonderful.

Christmas at Carnton (Carnton, #0.5) by Tamera Alexander I've yet to read a Tamera Alexander novel I didn't enjoy.

Then Came You (A Bradford Sisters Romance, #0.5) by Becky Wade Wonderful novella!

I have several of the nominees of my TBR:
Holding the Fort (Fort Reno #1) by Regina Jennings Deadly Proof (Atlanta Justice #1) by Rachel Dylan Deep Extraction (FBI Task Force #2) by DiAnn Mills Catching the Wind by Melanie Dobson These Healing Hills by Ann H. Gabhart

I noticed winner Upon a Spring Breeze is currently $1.99 for Kindle.
