Here's another 2019 project “authors with heart” spotlight and giveaway feature. 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. I'll be starting work on the 2020 project next week!

This week's spotlight features Tule Publishing‘s DOG PARK SWEETHEARTS by Sasha Summers. Here's what a reviewer had to say about the book:

“I highly recommend this book. The story is so sweet, the characters are all so likable, and the dogs are adorable. There is a little angst as we wonder whether Noah will choose to move away, if they will finally confess their feelings and if the parents will end up falling for each other too. I am looking forward to book 2 in the series. This would be an excellent Hallmark Valentines Day movie.” —Amazon Reviewer

Here's the blurb for DOG PARK SWEETHEARTS:

Best friends fur-ever…

Autumn Welsh has a full life. Dream job. Loyal dog. Good friends. And a happy family. Or it would be, if she could stop worrying about her dad. He needs to get out, live a little, maybe even find someone special. And she has the perfect woman in mind. With the help of her steadfast, dog-park buddy Noah, she sets out to help her father find companionship just in time for Valentine's day. Little does she guess that her dad won't be the only one finding love…

Restoration expert Noah Contreras was all in favor of Autumn’s matchmaking. His mother was lonely and her father was too. So why not give them a little push toward one another? Besides, spending time with Autumn is always an adventure. From giving art lessons to helping with pet adoption events, she embraces life with an energy and joy Noah finds irresistible. But Noah’s contract is almost finished, and he'll soon have to move on.

Does he dare ask Autumn to be his Valentine, when he might not be around for the rest of the year?

Isn't that such a cute cover? I love animals in books. This sounds like a fun story, especially with the matchmaking angle. I can't wait to find out. What do you think?
