Cover Reveal: A Spy’s Devotion by Melanie Dickerson

Cover Reveal: A Spy’s Devotion by Melanie Dickerson

Posted December 4, 2015 / 4 Comments

In February, one of my favorite people in the world – Melanie Dickerson – is releasing the first book in her new Regency Spies of London series. I mentioned it Tuesday in the list of 2016 debuts I’m excited to read. I already love every fairy tale retelling she writes and cannot wait to see what she does with a regency setting… and spies!

The cover is so gorgeous!! I mean… major cover love from me!

This week is all about those first novels by new authors, specifically the ones coming up in 2016 that we just can’t wait to read! I’ve picked some of the debut novels I’m most excited about – and then also some books by established authors who are starting either a new series or a new direction.

The Golden Braid has it all – adventure, romance, dashing knights, damsels who can save their own lives, faith, nostalgia-nods to series fans, even a mention or two of Thornbeck to tie in her other series. Most of all though, it has the warmth and heart with which Melanie Dickerson writes all of her books. C.S. Lewis famously said, “Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.” If you haven’t read one since childhood, may I suggest you start again now – and start with Melanie Dickerson’s Fairy Tales/Hagenheim series?
