December is flying by, and I have the last 2019 project “authors with heart” spotlight and giveaway feature for this year. I'll be back in 2020 with more. 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.

Barbara Ankrum‘s EVERY TIME A BELL RINGS is in this week's spotlight. If you enjoy holiday romances, you won't want to miss this one. Here's what a reviewer had to say about Barbara's book:

“Loved this book, brought me right in and did not let go until the end. Great characters, including Eden's son Quinn. This is the perfect Christmas romance that I highly recommend.” -Amazon Reviewer

Here's the blurb for EVERY TIME A BELL RINGS:

Once upon a time, he was everything to her, except for one thing: her future

Christmas sparkles from every bough and window at the cozy Four Winds Ski Resort, where single mother Eden Kendall and her eight-year-old son are spending the holiday. A surprise marriage proposal from her boss’s son wasn’t on her Christmas list, but it’s the perfect excuse to get away and weigh her options. She never imagined her son’s ski instructor/Santa impersonator would be the gorgeous, charismatic dreamer she left behind years ago, the one who still owns a piece of her heart.

Cole Hagan has never stopped loving Eden and he’s spent the last eight years proving her wrong on every count about his potential. While he fights to save the resort that he helped to build by organizing a holiday concert, he decides it’s about time that Eden puts aside her list-making pragmatism so that she and her skeptical son can experience the true magic of Christmas.

Can a not-so-perfect angel help this unlikely pair get a second chance at happily ever after?

I love Christmas romances, and I think this sounds great. A second chance? An angel? I love the entire premise of this one. What do you think?
