That's How She Rolls by CL Wells
Sometimes we convince ourselves that something we want just isn’t going to happen. It’s not meant. It must not be in God’s will. Lucky for us, God knows all ours heart’s desires. Better still, God knows what we need. When we least expect it, blessings fall down upon us and everything changes.
Leopard's Find by Kimberly A. Rogers
Ever wonder what your favorite characters were doing before you read about them for the first time? Sparks fly whenever Raina and Baran from The Therian Way are together. But what exactly was she doing before she met him?
Whatever Raina’s up to, it’s never boring.
Upsie-Daisy by Jane Lebak
Did you know guardian angels have a sharp sense of humor? It’s a requirement for the job, otherwise they’d run screaming instead of dealing with us. If you’re new to the Lee and Bucky stories, welcome to the world of sarcastic mechanics and pun-slinging angels. This story takes place about four months before any of the full-length novels, that way you can dive right in.
Circular Horizon by Bokerah Brumley
As a speculative fiction writer, I’m forever intrigued with the ‘what if.’ For instance, what if there was real-world science fiction featuring a God-fearing astronaut? This brain-wandering led to a story, and I briefly explore this idea with Mae McNair in Circular Horizon.
'Tis So Sweet by Faith Blum
Eleanor Miller has always loved her younger brother, even through all the bad things he has done. But when he almost kills a man, she needs to let him go and trust God to draw him to Himself. Will she find out how sweet it is to trust Jesus in everything, no matter what happens?
The Quinn Case by Julie C. Gilbert
Law enforcement’s a tough career to make it in both physically and emotionally. The Quinn Case takes place several years before the events in Heartfelt Cases Book 1: The Collins Case. Herein, you’ll meet a young FBI Special Agent named Ann Davidson who must find a missing child even as she struggles to put another case behind her.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
All of these authors were new to me, but I doubt this will be the last time I read their work. It was nice to read so many different genres of Christian fiction in one place. While all of the stories are very well-written and entertaining, I quickly found some personal favorites. That's How She Rolls by C.L. Wells was humorous yet touching. Leopard's Find by Kimberly A. Rogers was fascinating and full of surprises. Upsie-Daisy by Jane Lebak was my absolute favorite of all six novelettes--it tells about a very different sort of guardian angel than what I generally imagine. The other three stories are also good ones, they just aren't the sort of thing that I enjoy for my own reading. I have friends, however, who do enjoy those genres and were super-excited to read them. Overall, this is a marvelous anthology, and I'm sure everyone who reads it will come away with at least one new author to read!
Well! As a multi-genre ChristFic anthology of novelettes, Where the Light May Lead was indeed a new experience for me, chiefly because I'd never read any of these authors before. That's How She Rolls, a rom-com by C.L. Wells, features a humorous heroine who's self-conscious but also self-aware. Beauty and hotness come in all different sizes, ladies! Leopard's Find by Kimberly A. Rogers was my first taste of urban fantasy, initially a little tricky for me to follow, but it became endearing pretty quick. I've watched a lot more sci-fi than I've ever read, but either way, I'm rather sure Circular Horizon by Bokerah Brumley is the first I've encountered with blatant God-consciousness up in space, fitting for a God of the universe. 'Tis So Sweet by Faith Blum is historical fiction simply told, rushed in spots but big on sweetness and the need for faith--no coincidence there! And stepping into The Quinn Case by Julie C. Gilbert was much like sampling a crime drama on primetime television, which I like to do on occasion. I usually find a favorite in a collection, and Upsie-Daisy by Jane Lebak is strikingly clever and hilarious, imaginative and real at the same time. Lee and her guardian angel, Bucky, are quite the entertaining duo, unique but relatable, and this glimpse into Lee's work and romance-related experiences certainly whet my appetite to read more about her. Whether it'd be a new genre venture (like it mostly was for me) or not, Christian Fiction readers of all tastes should enjoy giving this collection a try. _____________ I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I loved the book and its story about their hardships but keeping their faith! Also that they wanted to be in the map of Gods will for them. Not easy for some but could overcome their insecurities and accept Jesus as their saviour!
