I call this a Baker's Dozen (13) top reads for 2022. So hard to narrow down because I read well over 100 books each year!:

#1 book for 2022 is The Extraordinary Deaths of Mrs. Kip (reviewed).

This one stands out for me because of how it touched me the most...emotionally, spiritually & how it has lingered in my heart. Mrs Kip was the epitome of Christ's love, care, and His hands and feet to anyone she meets. My favorite line and one I want to live out in my own life is this:
"I want it to be known that I did my utmost to leave in my wake the love Jesus first gave me." ~Mrs. Kip

Wow, this sums up the book for me!

The rest are in no particular order:

A Quilt for Christmas by Melody Carlson (I read her new Christmas book each year!)
A Christmas Blessing by Judith McNees 

Beneath His Silence by Hannah Linder (fantastic Regency debut!) (see my review)
A Game of Hearts by Joanna Barker
The Engagement Plot by Krista Phillips (fun Rom-Com!)
Love You Truly by Susan L. Tuttle
Falling for the Innkeeper/The Baby's Christmas Blessing by Meghann Whistler (Love Inspired)
My Dear Miss Dupre by Grace Hitchcock (what I dub a hilarious Regency era Rom-Com!)
The Valet's Secret by Josi S. Kilpack
A Guarded Heart by Heidi Kimball (very, very good clean Regency!)
Dear Beth by Alyssa Schwarz (see my review)
