It's nearing the end of November, and I have another 2019 project “authors with heart” spotlight and giveaway feature for you. In these posts, you get to hear about a book and have a chance to win a prize! Each featured author helped with the 2019 Mother's Day thermal bags that were donated to three Washington state Fisher Houses—VA Puget Sound Healthcare System in Seattle, Madigan Army Medical Center at JBLM, and VA Portland Health Care System in Vancouver.

Nancy Holland‘s A CHRISTMAS ROMANCE is in this week's spotlight. All you western fans should take note! Here's what a reviewer had to say about this book:

“I really enjoyed all the character interactions and the way the characters changed and grew during the story. The various family connections were really interesting to read about. Another 5 star Christmas story.” – Amazon Reviewer

Here's the blurb for A CHRISTMAS ROMANCE:

Just when he thought he knew everything, love taught him the ultimate lesson

J.T. Guzman still blames Meredith Hart and her father for his brother’s death. Bitter and grieving, he left the beloved ranch vowing never to return. Now a successful NYC attorney, he’s forced to return home to protect his mother’s financial interests when his step-father dies and divides the ranch between J.T.’s mother and Meredith in trust for her son. Seeing Meredith again hurts more than he imagined.

Meredith has loved J.T. for as long as she can remember. As teens, he barely noticed her clumsy, youthful attempts to get his attention, except to wrongly condemn her on flimsy evidence. Now that her father is dead, she’s willing to do anything including work alongside him, if it means she can hold on to her son’s heritage. Finding forgiveness is a dream she’s also not quite willing to abandon.

Drawn back into an emotional entanglement he thought he’d left behind, J.T. discovers that, far from being the enemy, Meredith may become the woman he loves.

Who is a fan of unrequited love and second chances? I'm raising my hand. I also love the ranch setting. The cover is cute with the red barn and wreath, too. Sounds like an emotion read. One reviewer said to have tissue handy! What do you think?
