American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) recently announced the finalists in its Carol Award contest (formerly known as the Book of the Year). Among the finalists were two of our staff here at The Borrowed Book...
Drumroll please...
Sandra Moore (writing as S. Dionne Moore) and Janice Thompson (writing as Janice Hanna)!
Polly Dent Loses Grip by S. Dionne Moore ~ Who says exercise is good for one’s health? Certainly not Polly Dent!

Polly Dent Loses Grip on the treadmill and takes a fatal spill that’s ruled an accident.

While helping her mother-in-law move into Bridgeton Towers Assisted Living & Nursing, LaTisha Barnhart’s nose smells trouble simmering. The residents’ gossip is revealing all kinds of motives for murder.

Gertrude Herrman is out looking for love in the form of Thomas Philcher (or is it love of his fat wallet instead?), and Polly’s fall eliminates Gertrude’s competition once and for all.

Otis Payne, the venerable director of Bridgeton Towers, is over a barrel when his wife demands cash—or else she’ll carry on without him.

Mitzi Mullins’s penchant for rhyme puts her in direct line as perpetrator of the crime, and Sue Mie’s mistake seals Polly’s fate.

Can LaTisha stay on her achin’ feet, and one step ahead of the villain, long enough to solve yet another crime?
Pushing Up Daisies by Janice Hanna ~ Annie Peterson is a small-town mom from Pennsylvania trying to make it through a season of weddings—one on top of another. She’s just married off her oldest daughter (Brandi), but still has another ceremony/reception to plan for Brandi’s twin sister, Candy.

Annie and her daughter visit the local Clarksborough florist shop (Flowers by Fiona) to order Gerber daisies for the big day. Later that day, Fiona mysteriously dies while making a delivery to a local funeral home. The funeral director, Eddie Moyer, is the suspected target, but he ends up MIA, so it’s hard to say what’s happened. Ironically, Sasha turns up missing as well – possibly for good.

Who is behind the funeral home murder? Join Annie as she attempts to crack the case!

Love Finds You in Poetry, Texas by Janice Hanna ~ Belinda Bauer in her ivory tower…

In the quaint community of Poetry, Texas, Belinda spies an opportunity. The town is filled with farmers and railroad men in need of wives, so why not set herself up at as a marriage broker?

Belinda sends little poems to prospective brides all over the country, and her plan seems to work. One by one, women begin to arrive in Poetry. There’s only one problem: Belinda doesn’t have a clue what she’s doing, and most of the brides marry the wrong men!

One client is particularly unhappy. Georg Kaufman, the local barber, has lost more than one prospective wife to Belinda’s fumbled attempts. For some reason, she just can’t seem to find Georg’s perfect match, though it’s not for lack of trying.

Is there a poetic ending in store for Georg—and for Belinda herself?
Congratulations, ladies!!
