Peterson launches her new Texas-set series, Striking a Match, which will definitely give readers what they want — and more. Book one touches on beliefs and hardships that make you fall in love right along with the main characters. You’ll want to know more about the characters and how they are able to find the signs God gives in order to achieve their families’ dreams and ambitions.

Deborah Vandermark returns to Texas to help run her family’s logging business. Then her best friend, Lizzie Decker, changes her mind about getting married and comes home too. Deborah decides that her brother and Lizzie would be a perfect match and tries to get them together while she gets to know the town’s new doctor, Christopher Clayton. As typhoid spreads through the town, Deborah realizes that she may be more suited to medicine than bookkeeping. (BETHANY HOUSE, Oct., 368 pp., $14.99)
